Bob Costas on gays in sports

Bob Costas discusses the failure of the NBC team to cover Olympian Matthew Mitcham’s sexuality and on what it means to be gay in professional sports. Costas seems completely relaxed and informed on the topic and promised to focus on it more often on his program. He said, “from my perspective, I think that these issues are more than valid. And if a person is already out and willing to talk about it, then certainly that’s significant in its own way.”
