The sporting world witnessed an important piece of history on Day 3 of the 2018 Olympic Games when Canadian figure skater Eric Radford became the first openly gay male athlete to win Olympic Winter gold.
Considering his awful track record when it comes to LGBTQ rights, it's more than understandable that some of the openly gay athletes competing at the Winter Olympics were less than impressed by Mike Pence's role as leader of the USA delegation. The first ever openly gay athlete to win gold was Australian diver Matthew Mitcham who received the honor at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
Radford is Canadian and along with skating partner Meagan Duhmel impressed the judges with their routine to the song "Hometown Glory" by Adele.
That high point score earned the two the gold while the Russian team got silver with 66 points and the U.S. team received bronze with 62 points.
