Former Out Gay Rugby player, Gareth Thomas had this to say about Russia:
‘If I was part of a squad going to these countries – I would go there as a gay man and be the best at what I was doing and prove that their laws can not stop me at being the best I can be in my sport. Athletes often only have one chance to be the best and they have worked so hard to get there that nothing should hold them back.”
