Athletes, coaches and leagues have not been shy about stating their opinions regarding the recent turmoil in U.S. politics. One Olympic gold medalist was involved in the riot at the U.S. Capitol. Many other sports figures were angry at varied political and equality matters, especially in regard to a member of Congress and Donald Trump supporter who owns a WNBA team. Even football coach Bill Belichick, normally averse to controversy, declined Trump's Presidential Medal of Freedom.
