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.

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