Survey conducted by Spot Sports (www.outsports.com)A sports news website focusing on LGBT issues and amateur and professional sports personalities reveals that at least 31 athletes with defined sexual orientation will compete in the Tokyo 2020 Games. This is double the number in Rio-2016.

The US and Great Britain have 9 each, Canada (3), Australia (2), Brazil (2) and Germany (2). The Netherlands, Ireland, Israel and Mexico each have their own delegates. Only Knight Lee Pearson on the GB Dressage team is on the list. There are at least three non-binary or neutral athletes: Australian Robin Lambird, Mass Strong (athletics), and American Laura Goodkind (rowing).

Rover Josian Lima

Beijing – 2008 Games bronze medalist Rover Josian Lima and four – time world swimming champion Adenia Garcia are two Brazilians on the list. Despite the prejudices of being a woman, a lesbian, and a disabled person, Adenia has become a reference in sports.

In a statement posted on the website of the Brazilian Confederation of University Sports (www.cbdu.org.br), she told us a little about her sexual orientation.

“In 2016, I shaved one side of my hair and cut it very short in the ‘Jososinho’ style. All around me, I was attacked a lot by colleagues around me. This moment was very difficult. “I was so embarrassed, they labeled me a lot for a simple haircut, which really impressed me at the time,” the athlete said.
