There's not just one kind of athlete

Thanks to Keph Senett for pointing us to this post that references a photo shoot of a variety of athletes from different sports.

It points out the diversity in body types, a subject dear to us at the FGG. In our guidelines for sports programs, based on our 30-odd "core sports", we offer flexibility for hosts while attempting to ensure that the Gay Games suit the needs and ability of a wide variety of athletes. Body type is a big part of this concern, as is the variety of types of athletic ability: endurance, speed, coordination, etc.
