Olympian Shawn Barber comes out as gay
Barber holds the NCAA indoor pole vault record.

Shawn Barber, an Olympic pole vaulter from Canada, came out as gay in a cheerful Facebook post earlier this week. He wrote: 

“Gay and proud! Thank you to my parents for being such a great support. I continue to grow as a person and have a great support group. My parents are my greatest support and have helped me through a lot recently. To my friends, you are always my friends and i love you too!”

The Canadian Olympic Committee confirmed to Outsports that Barber did in fact write the post.

Barber instantly becomes one of the highest-profile and most successful current openly gay athletes anywhere in the world. He won the world championship in the pole vault in 2015. At the Rio Summer Olympics last year he finished 10th.

Congrats, Shawn!
