Canada’s Quinn makes history as first openly trans and non-binary athlete to win Olympic gold


Quinn has already made Olympic history  — and now, they are an Olympic champion.

The 25-year-old midfielder from Toronto became the first openly transgender and non-binary athlete to win an Olympic gold medal on Friday after Canada beat Sweden in penalty kicks.

This medal is Quinn’s second after winning a bronze for Canada at the 2016 Rio Games.

Earlier, Quinn, who came out as transgender in September 2020 and uses the nonbinary pronouns they/them, was the first openly transgender athlete to compete at the Summer Games.

Quinn also plays professionally for Washington’s OL Reign and formerly played college soccer at Duke University.
