Is Sydney McLaughlin Gay? Her Wife and Girlfriend Rumour
No, Syndey McLaughlin is not gay.
At least 22 LBGTQ+ members represented the United States in the Tokyo Olympics. The notable athletes include Sue Bird, Megan Rapinoe, Erica Bougard, and many more.
Likewise, there were queries if hurdler and sprinter Sydney McLaughlin’s sexuality is also lesbian or bi. However, the rumors are entirely false.
Neither does Syndey McLaughlin has a girlfriend nor a wife.
Back in 2018, people had online discussions as someone mentioned Syndey gives them “lesbian vibes.” However, the hoax was soon debunked.
Just because someone is more tomboyish doesn’t mean she has to be in the LBGTQ+ spectrum.
