<Helen and Kate Richardson-Walsh have finally made their dream come true – they became the first married lesbian Olympic champions! Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh played in the match against the Netherlands on Saturday evening, which led to Team GB winning gold.The match went to penalties before Team GB took the lead to win 2-0 against the Netherlands.
Kate says that winning an Olympic gold is special itself, but it becomes many times more special when your second half is with you, and not just supporting you from the bleachers, but standing next to you with a gold medal hanging on her neck. The homophobic people might boo and express their irritation, but it will only inspire them – they have been waiting for it for the long 17 years of their sport career and they finally got it., so now there is nothing to spoil their happiness. Our warmest congratulations, ladies! You deserved it!
