Out Olympian Nicola Adams is featured in Marie Claire UK where she says this about herself:

“[One] label that has been attached to me is “bisexual”, although I would rather be just a person and not be categorised. … I have never tried to hide my sexuality, but I have never spoken about it before in the press, either, because I didn’t want it to overshadow everything else. It is an important aspect of who I am, but it doesn’t define me. I worried about how everyone would react, so I used to say I was single, rather than say I was with a girl. I felt like I was lying all the time. I didn’t like living like that so, in the end, I thought, ‘Well, this is who I am. It’s not as if I can stop it.’
