It is in the magazine HandAction the French vice-world champion handball player Alexandra Lacrabère openly spoke about her homosexuality for the first time.

We know it is not easy to be out in the sport, but Alexandra, 24, just broached the subject. She said she loved painting, shopping and especially spending time with her girlfriend.

Maybe her public coming out will push other athletes to do the same. In France, there are only four sportswomen that are openly lesbian: Amelie Mauresmo, Carole Péon and Jessica Harrison (triathlon), and now Alexandra Lacrabère.
