Dutch bisexual speedskater Irene Wüst won the gold medal in the 3,000 meters on Sunday, the first openly LGBT athlete to win a medal at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. After the race, Wüst met Russian President Vladimir Putin, who signed into law anti-gay legislation last year.

"He congratulated me and asked if everything was okay in Russia, and I congratulated him on Olga Graf, of course, for her third place" finish, Wüst told a Dutch news organization. "He was happy to see me, but then he had to leave again."

I have no idea if Putin knew Wüst is bisexual, but you can’t make up this kind of stuff.
