Why we’re covering this: LGBTQ representation in sports is a big issue — and, well, we’d be lying if we didn’t say we wanted to show some photos of a hot guy. But mostly the representation thing.

There’s a new out athlete heading to the Olympics! Victor Gutiérrez, member of the Spanish water polo team, has come out of the closet.

One of the biggest ways to fight homophobia is to be out and proud, so we tip our swimming caps to Victor!
