Good for this guy

I hope more athletes speak up...and if Americans are going to the Winter Olympics I hope they wave little Rainbow Flags or something.

American track and field star Nick Symmonds has become the first athlete to criticize Russia's new anti-gay laws while competing on Russian soil. 

After he won a silver medal at the World Championships yesterday, Symmonds told R-Sport he was dedicating the win to his gay and lesbian friends.

He said, "As much as I can speak out about it, I believe that all humans deserve equality as however God made them. 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."

Umm, this guy better not rule out arrest.

It could happen whether he wants to avoid it or not.
