• NAVRATILOVA URGES IOC OVER GAY RIGHTS

    0

    NEW YORK: Tennis legend Martina Navratilova hit out at the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday, accusing the Olympic body of “putting their head in the sand” over gay rights. The openly gay former tennis star, speaking at the United Nations in New York, also took a swipe at Qatar, hosts of the football World Cup in 2022. But she was most animated about what she sees as the IOC inaction ahead of the Sochi Winter Olympics in February in Russia, a country which has courted criticism for legislation that gay activists and critics say discriminates against homosexuals.
