    The 2015 edition of the EuroGames, an LGBT multi-sport festival affiliated with the World OutGames, will be coming to Stockholm, Sweden in early August. Sports to be contested include track & field, swimming, diving, cycling, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and a whole bunch more, with a goal of attracting 5000 competitors.

    Although most of the participants will be European, it's open to whoever wants to compete. Even straight people are welcome!

    If you've never done one of these events, it's a great atmosphere. The level of competition is high but guys are also very friendly and supportive - there's virtually no douchebag attitudes. And the after parties rock!

    I'll be competing in track, and rooming with an Aussie guy I met at the Gay Games last summer.

    So, who wants a little Swedish meatball?

    I'll be there, hitting the cock (lol) in the badminton competition.
    Can't wait.

    I'm attending too. First time rugby has been included as a sport in Eurogames.

    Looking forward to it!

    Actually Madrid is bringing a full delegation. LGTB teams from the city finally joined icon_smile.gif We're even doing fundraising together.

    We'll be sending guys to several of the sports, including rugby, tennis, badminton, swimming and track.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    And I'm looking forward to seeing you hotties at the track!

    By the way, the venue for the track competition is Stockholm's Olympic stadium, from when they hosted the Summer Games in 1912! For the Americans, that's where Jim Thorpe (a Native American who grew up in the Sac and Fox nation in Oklahoma) won the decathlon and was presented his gold medal by King Gustav V of Sweden, who proclaimed him "the greatest athlete in the world".

    Jim's typically laconic response: "Thanks, King."
