"The stupid part of this, which I have argued to them, is that there are tons of gay couples on the Olympic team who will be rooming together so we are being discriminated against because we are heterosexual."
Gay people have that kind of power? No. Gay people don't have equal rights in Australia.
so why would Australia make a rule only for straight people to follow if gay people can't even get married? if gay couples are allowed then I'm sure straight couples are allowed.
not sure why they can't room together... but he seems to even have admitted the real reasons why:
"Earlier this month the double trap champion raised the ire of Olympic chiefs when he said he would not abide to their decision to ban athletes using sedatives such as Temazapan, that he has used during competition for years.
Lauryn has also courted controversy by posing with her gun in men's magazine, Zoo Weekly. The covershoot is released today.
While it is still not known why the couple will be prevented from rooming together, Russell is adamant they've angered somebody.
"They are p---ed with my stance on sleeping tablets, and what p---ed them more than anything else is the photo shoot which is released tomorrow."
