 Bisexual speed skater Ireen Wüst has missed out on a medal despite leading the table for much of the race.

Earlier this week, Wüst became the most successful speed skater in Olympic history by winning gold in the Women’s 1500m race.

The 31-year-old finished ahead of Japan’s Miho Takagi and another Dutch skater, Marrit Leenstra, in that event.

Wüst – one of 13 openly LGBT athletes at the Games – quickly fell down the standings despite leading the field until three-quarters of the way through the event.

The skater, who is also a six-time world champion, started going out with fellow skater Letitia de Jong last year.

The youngest ever Dutch Olympic champion won two golds and three silver medals at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, and another silver earlier in these Games.

Moms Mabley

With her toothless grin, floppy hat and tell-it-like-it-is persona, Moms Mabley may be one of the most influential comedians you don’t know. She rose to fame in the early decades of the 20th century on the chitlins circuit — the collection of stages around the country that employed black entertainers during segregation — and she would go on to a career that spanned more than 50 years.

That hasn’t deterred Whoopi Goldberg
