!! OMG, coming up for air: Professional British swimmer Dan Jervis comes out !!

British swimmer Dan Jervis, 26, has come out as gay ahead of competing in the Commonwealth Games! The swimmer who hails from Wales, won 1500m freestyle silver and bronze at the 2014 and 2018 Games. He also competed for Team GB in the Tokyo Olympics last year, and placed fifth. Talking on the BBC’s LGBT Sport Podcast, Jervis said he didn’t tell anyone else that he thought he might be gay until he was 24 years old:

“It took me 24 years to be who I am. I was adjusting to everything else, just trying to fit in – until I thought: ‘Just be you.’ You know, we’re just before the Commonwealth Games and there are going to be kids and adults watching who will know that I’m like them and that I’m proud of who I am.”

He continued, “For so long, I hated who I was – and you see it all the time, people who are dying over this. They hate themselves so much that they’re ending their lives. So if I can just be that someone people can look at and say, ‘yeah, they’re like me,’ then that’s good.”

He also talked about being a devout Christian, and said his faith had meant it wasn’t easy to embrace his sexuality at first. When speaking about telling a friend when he was 24, he said:

“I said to her: ‘I think I’m gay.’ I couldn’t even say: ‘I’m gay.’ I was basically punching the words out. She was quite shocked but great, and it was exactly the reaction I wanted. I’ve had all good reactions, and the way I’ve described it is I’m not going to change as a person.

Everyone’s journey is different, but I think I’ve always known. It was something in the back of my mind, bugging me. I thought I was bisexual and had girlfriends that I loved – but it came to about three years ago where I knew I had to deal with this. It wasn’t affecting my swimming, but me as a human being. It sounds quite drastic, but I wasn’t enjoying my life. Yeah, I was smiling, but there was something missing to make me properly happy. I’m still the Dan you’ve always known. You just know something else about me now.”

Congrats on living your best life, Dan and welcome to the club! Now go get the gays some shiny new medals 😉

!! OMG, Mike Tyson is selling cannabis-infused edibles in the shape of a chewed-up ear !!

This is twisted, but also genius. You know the bros are gonna eat this shit up! LAHTERALLY!

More than two decades after Mike Tyson bit off a chunk of Evander Holyfield‘s ear at the 1997 WBA Heavyweight Championship fight, the legendary boxer has released a line of edibles — in the shape of ears.
The cannabis-infused gummies are called “Mike Bites” in homage to Tyson’s most notorious moment.

Holyfield, the only four-time world heavyweight champion, defeated Tyson at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in 1996. The following year, during their highly anticipated rematch, Tyson bit off a small section of Holyfield’s ear, spit it onto the canvas and was promptly disqualified. The gory incident marked the rematch as one of the most bizarre fights in the history of boxing.

Tyson, who was the youngest boxer ever to win a heavyweight title, has launched several cannabis-related ventures in recent years. Tyson 2.0, the company releasing “Mike Bites,” describes itself as “a premier cannabis company formed with legendary boxer, entrepreneur and icon Mike Tyson.” In 2021, the company expanded its sales to over 100 locations in California.

What boxer body parts do you want to see as edibles next, OMG? We vote for one of Conor McGregor‘s appendages!😈 Check out the gummies after the jump!
