Today marked the first day of Olympic competition in the 2012 London Games with a day filled with women's soccer.
The U.S. Women's National Team, featuring out midfielder Megan Rapinoe, kicked off the games with its opening match of the games against France. The American ladies came away with a 4-2 victory after going down two goals to none, in large part to Rapinoe's solid midfield play.
There are some 21 openly gay and lesbian athletes competing in London, according to Outsports. That's already higher than the total of out Olympians in Beijing four years ago. But out of the 14,000 or so athletes competing at the games, something tells us there are a few more gay and lesbian athletes in London than the ones listed below.
Here's the list:
Marilyn Agliotti (Netherlands, field hockey)
We're especially excited for women's soccer and gymnastics this year. We're also rooting for a repeat gold medal for Australia's Matthew Mitcham, who became a symbol of gay athletes everywhere in Beijing four years ago. What will you be watching?
