Meet the U.S. Figure Skating Team for the 2022 Winter Olympics!

The Olympic team is comprised of 15 skaters that ready to bring the U.S. some gold back home. One skater in particular, Timothy LeDuc, is making some history of their own by being the openly nonbinary winter Olympian.

“My hope is that when people see my story, it isn’t focused on me and saying, ‘Oh, Timothy is the first out non-binary person to achieve this level of success in sport,'” LeDuc told NBC Sports. “My hope is that the narrative shifts more to, ‘Queer people can be open and successful in sports.’”
