Gus Kenworthy shares snap of his 'bruised peach'

Looks like being an Olympian is painful

2018-02-21

Olympian Gus Kenworthy has shared a snap of his painful bruise days after competing in the Winter Olympics. 

The freestyle skier made history after becoming one of the first openly gay men to compete at the Winter Olympics. 

The 26-year-old worked hard for the achievement, and in doing so ended up injuring himself in a rather awkward place while on the slops. 

Sharing a snap of his 'bruised peach' on Instagram, Kenworthy wrote: "A peach hasn't been this destroyed since Timothee Chalamet in Call Me By Your Name." 

Kenworthy's 'peach' wasn't the only thing he managed to injure during the Winter games, as the Olympian also broke his thumb shortly before shading homophobic vice president Mike Pence on social media. 

Meanwhile, the former Attitude cover star struck up an adorable friendship with gay figure skater Adam Rippon and made history after sharing a kiss with boyfriend Matthew Wilkas at the Winter Olympics on live television.
