Coming out to the world
Daniel Kowalski has always been one of my favourite sport stars. Maybe it was about being the underdog through much of his competitive swimming career or the way he comes across on tv (unlike many other sports stars, he seems like a genuinely nice guy). His coming out today doesn't really surprise me. And I hope that others find some inspiration in his story. The lack of self confidence, which he talks about in his interview, is something that a lot of people can probably relate. I do hope that Daniel can see how his achievements are all the more remarkable given that they coincided with a time in his life when he was also struggling to come to grips with who he was. And what a beautiful man he has turned out to be.
