Edward-Gal.jpgOnce again, I'm blogging the Summer Olympics with the team. Outsports now partners with SBNation, which reposts all our Olympics reports. I'd like to share mine with Bilerico readers.

Here is my first - focusing on the potential showdown in dressage between Ann Romney's horse Rafalca and a horse ridden by Netherlands rider Edward Gal - one of the greats in that sport.

I think it's very ironical and piquant that an entry connected to a presidential candidate who opposes gay relationships and same-sex marriage should be competing against Gal, who is openly gay and has a committed partner.

The first dressage grand prix is scheduled for August 2. We'll see who prevails. My money is on Gal, of course.
