John Amaechi interview in SportsFriendly

From John Amaechi's interview in SportsFriendly:

So John, how were the Gay Games?!
It was fantastic. I hesitated at first, but when I arrived and saw athletes competing so hard, and then showing their camaradery during and after the events, that galvanized the city of Cologne. It was just great.

Did you meet French athletes? They had great results in a number of events.
I did meet some French athletes, mostly in basketball and track. The basketball team was pretty good, and could be proud of the way they played.

What's your best memory of this event?
I think it was the part of town where there were bars where athletes met up in the street at the end of the day to unwind. It was amazing to see so many great athetes, all gay, and all in one place!
