Tennis great Billie Jean King sat down to discuss the upcoming Sochi Olympics on Meet The Press yesterday. The clip delves into her past, including what happened when she was very publicly outed as a lesbian, in a nation that was far less friendly than the United States is today. She says that she’s a bit nervous about going to Sochi, but that she’s thrilled to be representing the US in this way, especially as an openly gay athlete.
