More than 40 percent of the out LGBT Olympians took home medals, a better medal-winning percentage than Team USA.

OutSports.com, a website dedicated to LGBT issues in sports, provided in-depth coverage of the Olympics, including tallying 23 out Olympians from around the world.

"If Team Gay was a country, it would have finished 31st overall with seven medals, tied with Mexico, Ethiopia and Georgia," OutSports.com co-founder Cyd Zeigler noted in an excellent article wrapping up the London Games.
