Canadian Olympic luger John Fennell came out publicly this week. He talked about the mental struggle of being a closeted gay man trying to compete in Sochi, where well-known laws explicitly targeted him. Fennell we'll join us, and we'll ask him about the reaction to his coming out story and his overall experience in Russia.

Plus, we'll hit on some of the other LGBT athletes talking publicly this week, including a former Baylor basketball player, a tennis player and a college runner who claims he was kicked out of school for being gay.
