This is one of the most dramatic behind-the-scenes stories to come out of the London Olympics. Top rider Carl Hester, who is openly gay, is also a trainer and riding coach. He put together the combination of a talented green horse and young girl rider that took Great Britain to the gold-medal finals in London. Read the whole story in my Outsports/SBNation report.
