Nick Symmonds, silver medallist in 800m, dedicates medal to gay people

Nick Symmonds, silver medallist in 800 m in Moscow Athletics World Championships, dedicates his medal to gay people. some russian people even want to put him under arrest


Quote:

"As much as I can speak out about it, I believe that all humans deserve equality as however God made them," he told R-Sport after running a 1:43.55 at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. "Whether you're gay, straight, black, white, we all deserve the same rights. If there's anything I can do to champion the cause and further it, I will, shy of getting arrested."

"I respect Russians' ability to govern their people," he said Tuesday. "I disagree with their laws. I do have respect for this nation. I disagree with their rules."

i hope more athletes could do the same, but it seems nick always said he was a "gay ally" and most athletes seem just to not care

Wonderful symbolic gesture from an American hero. Sometimes the most simple things go a long way.
