Gus Kenworthy Bows Out of the 2018 Winter Olympics with Grace & Dignity

Gus Kenworthy has been one of the most talked about athletes at the 2018 Winter Olympics games, as the 26-year-old has made a variety of headlines since the events started almost two weeks ago.


Unbeknownst to him, he shared a major (and adorable) kiss with his boyfriend on national television, and even got a funny dig on Vice President Mike Pence after he broke his thumb late last week. 

He unfortunately, however, did not get a medal this time around for freestyle skiing (he won the silver medal at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi), but shared a very poignant message about his time in Pyeongchang on Twitter Sunday. 

Regardless, the gay community is very proud of the efforts that Gus and Adam Rippon have put forward in the 2018 Winter Olympics for our visibility and standing up for what we believe in, and there isn't a big enough medal to give either of them for that.

Great job Gus!
