Cuban American gymnast and LGBT community supporter Danell Leyva has won 2 silver medals. On August 16 2016, Daniel scored silver in the Olympic men's parallel bar final with a score of 15.900. About an hour and a half later, he won another silver in the horizontal bar final, scoring 15.500. The double victory is especially sweet for Leyva who originally made the 2016 men's Olympic team as an alternate when frontrunner John Orozco was forced to withdraw from the Games due to an ACL injury,
In June 2016 Leyva issued a video supporting LGBT rights wanting to make America Gay Again. See his video in support of LGBT here.
