Only a few days into the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Team LGBTQ is absolutely killing it.

The publicly out LGBTQ Winter Olympians have already earned four medals.

What’s amazing is that Team LGBTQ is doing it with only 14 athletes that we know of and are counting. One of them, of course, is Ireen Wuest, one of the great Olympic champions of all time with 10 medals so far in her career.

Out Olympians have a history of doing amazing things. In Rio, 47% of them won a medal.
