Good for him, it just shouldn't be an issue anymore within sport as it really has no bearing on performance. I just wish there were more acceptance over here in the UK within the sport world. We still have minor problems with racism too which is frankly, utterly pathetic. It's not the friggin' dark ages...
You're right. Apparently lots of people have a "hard" time getting over their prejudices. There's a lot of prejudice here in the USA, particularly against gay people. Also against black people. Also against white people. Also against leftists. Also against rightists. Also against atheists. Also against women.
And on and on.
I must own having prejudices. But I realize I'm wrong and prejudice is stupid.
As always, you're the man.
