Closeted British Athletes

Dame Kelly Holmes, Colin Jackson - both former, very accomplished gold medallists - why won't they come out? Do we suspect anyone else?%0D %0D And are we enjoying the Delhi Commonwealth Games?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4905/30/2015

What about the runner who owns a modeling agency with his brother?. I wish swimmer Liam Tancock was.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 110/08/2010

My sister in law served with Holmes in the army and says she's asexual not gay. So totally focused on sport threre isn't room for anything else.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 210/08/2010

Someone's enjoying the Dehli games based on the condoms that are backing up the sewers...

by Looking forward to 2012reply 310/08/2010

R2, do you honestly believe that bullcrap?%0D %0D I mean, honestly. %0D %0D I have no clue whether she's gay or not but seriously...

by Looking forward to 2012reply 410/08/2010

My sister in law is gay too. She's married to my older sister so I think she at least has some insight.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 510/08/2010

Wasn't tennis star Virginia Wade ?%0D %0D there has to be lots more ...

by Looking forward to 2012reply 610/08/2010

Holmes was seen at Lounge by friends of mine, dancing with a woman and kissing her. Was widely gossiped about at the time.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 710/08/2010

Was it true that Colin Jackson had something going on with the swimmer Mark Foster?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 810/08/2010

Not that surprised to learn that Kelly Holmes. I've met her a few times and always got some kind of weird feeling. To bad Kelly Sotherton is straight; that, my dear dataloungers, would be amazing.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 910/08/2010

I am British, straight though but Colin is 100% gay

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1010/08/2010

Has Colin Jackson ever been seen with a woman, just one time? Come on Colin! Everybody knows. Time to stand up and be a role model for young athletes. Right body, right mind.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1110/08/2010

Tom Daley, please! Would love to pound his hole.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1210/08/2010

[quote]Colin Jackson Jackson is an arrogant git, no one would want him as a role model.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1310/08/2010

"My sister in law is gay too. She's married to my older sister so I think she at least has some insight."%0D %0D Well she needs a little more. Clearly Holmes is not 'asexual'. %0D %0D Colin Jackson did a BIZARRE interview where he strenuously denied being gay. This was around the time of him doing Dancing on Ice or whatever. It was so leftfield and aggressive it just got people on the internet gossiping he was a closet case.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1410/09/2010

Colin Jackson can't be gay. He is/was close friends with pussy hound Linford Christie.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1510/09/2010

Yes R6 Wade was outed in the 90s

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1610/10/2010

Does Britain really have what you could call athletes?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1710/10/2010

I wouldn't mind getting to know a few of their rowers, they are always the hottest of the British athletes. Oh, and Chris "thighs of death" Hoy.%0D %0D

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1810/10/2010

Sue Barker is married, is that correct?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 1910/10/2010

Here we go again, r17. As soon as anything British is mentioned on DL, up pops a negative comment.%0D %0D %0D Are you of German, French or Argentinian extraction by any chance? Or maybe Middle Eastern?%0D %0D

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2010/10/2010

.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2110/10/2010

Certainly want Colin Jackson as a hole model.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2210/10/2010

That's even dumber than the usual "too busy to date" line:%0D %0D Asked to explain "why he hasn't been seen with any women recently he said: "Because I don't particularly want to be with any woman. It's as simple as that.' "

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2310/10/2010

[quote]Does Britain really have what you could call athletes? Seriously? Is this the best you could come up with R17? Your Brit baiting skills are shite.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2410/10/2010

A quick bump for gay british athletes.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2510/11/2010

Tom Daley cleaned up with the golds. This boy really, really pings, but not half as much as Canada's Kevin Geyson - flaming Queen methinks

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2610/13/2010

Is Mark Foster gay?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2707/30/2012

Mark Foster is pretty certainly gay. Apart from not a wiff of heteo interest across nearly 2 decades of being a pro swimmer, there's the long-term association with Colin Jackson. After he appeared on Strictly Come Dancing (the UK original of Dancing with the Stars), he was papped on holiday to the gay Mecca of Gran Canaria with the two Strictly gay pros, Ian Waite and Matthew Cutler.

There was a funny exchange this morning on the BBC Olympic swimming coverage, where Foster and Ian Thorpe are the main pundits. Thorpe joked about Foster's swimming, and Foster mock-complained back 'He's wearing my T-shirt - Clare (out Lesbo Clare Balding, who anchors the swimming coverage), take my shirt off him!'. Why is clothes designer and fashion-plate Ian Thorpe wearing Mark Foster's clothes?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2807/30/2012

I don't know if it's the 'classic' Anti-Brit Troll, but if it is, they're American, and obsessed with Britain (and the rest of Europe) being overrun with "Muzzies" who are moments away from inflicting Sharia law on the entire world, minus brave freedom-loving America, of course.

I actually don't think it is, since that troll was far more delusional and given to racist outbursts than what's been posted recently. Unless they upped their meds.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 2907/30/2012

posted 28 > thanks for the reply, is there any proof of all this? links etc

and i hope he is gay, love him to bits even if he is old enough to be my dad.

wish i had his number. :(

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3007/30/2012

If you are talking about people in the closet, look no further than Sir Steve Redgrave, I know from personal experience that he is more like Lady Redgrave!!

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3108/21/2012

You are so funny R 31

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3208/21/2012

My friend saw Colin Jackson and Mark Foster together in Brighton a few days ago.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3308/21/2012

I served with Kelly in York and I can confirm that she is indeed gay, though I have no idea why this should matter?

She was a fine soldier, good friend and amazing athlete.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3401/24/2013

We're just talking Summer athletes on this thread, right?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3501/24/2013

Because they are NOT Dame Honey Boo Boo!

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3601/24/2013

R34 it matters because this is a gay gossip board.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3701/24/2013

A friend of a friend of mine who knows stuff has confirmed that Jackson and Foster are an item (well, they were at the time of the recent Olympics, when he told her this).

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3801/24/2013

Seems strange to a lot of people that Colin isn't out and said that he wasn't gay since it seems obvious.

The UK is increasingly gay friendly and he does commenting for the BBC which would have no problem with it.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 3901/24/2013

Trust me, Colin Jackson is gay.

He told me, he also told me how Rafael Nadal is a fan of his And they are good friends!

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4007/27/2013

Colin Jackson was the hottest when he was active in sports. Hot also now.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4107/27/2013

I wish Daley Thompson was gay. Pity that he's such a raging homophobe.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4207/27/2013

I wish the former javelin thrower Steve Backley were gay. I used to have the hots for him back in the day.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4307/27/2013

[all posts by ham-fisted troll a removed.]

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4407/27/2013

bump

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4503/03/2015

I know R19 asked 4 years ago, but yes Sue Barker is married to a policeman and has been for about 25 years. They're still together. Here's an old newspaper article about her wedding which mentions Sue also used to date the golfer Greg Norman long before he married Chris Evert. Wonder if Sue and Chris ever discuss that at Wimbledon!

Sue famously dated Cliff Richard too. Cliff's fans always drag up Sue's name to prove his heterosexuality, even though it was over 30 years ago.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4603/03/2015

My gaydar is shockingly bad, but I was pretty surprised when Jessica Ennis married a man.

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4705/30/2015

Any gays in the Premier League?

by Looking forward to 2012reply 4805/30/2015

R48 The gay british basketballer, who came out after his career, said he has talked to several.
