"I can't begin to imagine what it must be like for a gay athlete in Russia. It was hard enough to compete closeted representing the United States, a country that is considerably evolved on LGBT rights. It is unfathomable to consider what it's like for the Russian athlete - knowing that if you were to come out you could lose everything you've worked your entire life to achieve and then on top of that to be considered a criminal. It is both heartbreaking and heinous."
-- Openly gay four-time Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis, speaking with USA Today about Russia's draconian anti-gay legislation and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
