Fresh off his recent success at the 2015 World Rowing Championship in France, openly gay Olympian from New Zealand, Robbie Manson speaks with Eikon about his life so far and what makes him tick.

1Q – What’s it like being a role model for young gay athletes?

A – I feel incredibly lucky that I’m in a position to help show younger gay athlete’s that sexuality doesn’t matter in sport.

Hopefully it inspires others to come out and be themselves or at least makes it easier for them, I think it’s like a domino effect; I’m just one domino in a much bigger picture.
