In windy conditions at Cologne’s Rhinegold Stadium, Team Nashville’s Keith Little won the gold medal in the javelin today at Gay Games VIII. This is Little’s third consecutive gold in the javelin, with previous triumphs in Sydney in 2002 and Chicago in 2006.
Earlier in the afternoon, Little secured bronze medals in the hammer and shot put. He’d also placed third in the shot put in Chicago.
His teammate Patrick Boggs clinched a top ten finish in the 10K road race with an impressive time of 42:56, a personal best mark.
Earlier this week, Jay Gondek scored a silver medal in the men’s 45-50 olympic distance triathlon, while Sam Felker won bronze in the men’s 50-55 sprint triathlon. Little will participate in the shot put competition later this week.
This year almost 10,000 participants from over 70 countries are entered in Gay Games, the world’s premier GLBT and gay-friendly sporting event.
