The 2018 Winter Olympics Are Getting Another Openly Gay Figure Skater

Looks like Adam Rippon's got some company as we have another gay ice skater joining the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Eric Radford and skating partner Meagan Duhamel qualified on Saturday to join the team representing Canada in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Radford is another gay athlete who’s been to the Olympics before, but only came out afterwards. He participated in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi with his partner Duhamel. After that, Radford came out through an interview with Outsports.

Things have been going well for Radford and Duhamel after Radford’s coming out.

Professionally, the two went on to the 2015 World Championships and won. Now, they feel confident going into the 2018 Winter Olympics.

“We know what to expect, so much more than the last time. We know what we’re capable of.”

Then personally, Radford proposed to his boyfriend Luis Fenero last summer.

We wish the best for Eric Radford and Meagan Duhamel both at the 2018 Winter Olympics and with their lives in general as well.
