A competitor in the men’s 100-meter breaststroke at the 2012 London Olympics, New Zealand–born swimmer Amini Fonua has made even more waves by publicly coming out this year. Tonga’s flag bearer at the Games, Fonua, a member of Texas A&M’s Class of 2013, made the announcement in part to defend his alma mater after the Princeton Review included Texas A&M on its list of the most “LGBT-unfriendly” schools. He graduated this year with a B.A. in telecommunications and multimedia studies.
Next up for Amini is competing at this year's Gay Games. See how he gets BODY READY with Gillette here:
