Matthew Mitcham On Athletes Coming Out

Gay Australian Olympic champion diver Matthew Mitcham wrote a message about recent athletes coming out in his Facebook Page:

Couldn’t be more chuffed about the coming out of Steven Davies (wicketkeeper, ENG) and Anton Hysen (football, SWE). Along with Gareth Thomas, Blake Skjellerup and Johnny Weir, I hope we’re giving other gay sportspeople, who are at the top of their respective fields, the confidence to be who they are. Friends, please extend your support to these exceptional athletes =]
