Openly gay gymnast Ji Wallace (right), who won a silver medal on trampoline in the 2000 Olympics for Australia, has come out of retirement and is on tour in World Cup competitions with Australia's national team, hoping to make the team for the World Championships in November. Wallace came out in 2005.
We've got Wallace's press release after the jump. The last paragraph of his press release calls him "very single." You can find him on Myspace, where I imagine he's hoping to either find someone to keep him single or change his status. He's also got a bunch of great pics of him on there. Anyone headed to Sydney anytime soon?
