When it comes to sport, we couldn’t tell you a shot put from a shuttle cock, but when it comes to pole vaulters and pole-smoking – we’re here. Olympian Shawn Barber, said he was “gay and proud!” while a number of the community thought about sitting on his face.

JUMBO! He may not be well-known right now, but you know how it works with recently out celebs, we’re sure the interviews and shirtless selfies are en route.

The 22 year-old went on:

“Thank you to my parents for being such a great support. I continue to grow as a person and have a great support group. My parents are my greatest support and have helped me through a lot recently. To my friends, you are always my friends and I love you too!”

Barber, who allegedly tested positive for cocaine, can also hook you up with a decent gram. Now if that’s not husband material… We’ll await the nude leak.
