LGBT Olympians digest 2018. Sophie Vercruyssen


We were not planning to include the Belgian bobsleigh player into our digest, but yesterday she hinted on Instagram that she is in love with a woman, so we have all rights to wish her good luck as we do top all other representatives of the LGBT community at the games. She started her bobsleigh career quite recently – in 2014 she watched Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, and thought that bobsleigh was a great alternative to basketball she previously played. “Then I found out that the Belgian federation was organising an event to scout new talents and I decided to sign up. That’s how it all started,” she said about that times. In 2016 she already won silver at the European championships in 2016.
