The London Olympic Committee isn't shying away from working with John Amaechi to promote the Olympics in 2012. His latest appearance was at the new basketball arena for the Olympics, where Amaechi showed of his shot and showed he can still dunk. He said he was hurting later that day, but he loved it.
Tewksbury the face of the Canadian Olympic team; Amaechi one of the faces of the organizing effort; The Gay Games pushing outreach to openly gay athletes. Could the 2012 Olympics be the Games that gay athletes finally feel whole and welcome? They're off to a great start.
See the video from the BBC (Amaechi dunks around 1:10).
