Italian Olympic skier Sofia Goggia has apologised for her recent homophobic comments in a new statement. Recently, the professional athlete came under fire for making anti-LGBTQ+ comments in an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera.

During the sit-down, the 29-year-old was asked if there were LGBTQ+ athletes within the competitive sport of skiing, to which she responded “no”. “Among women yes.

Not for men, I would say. You have to throw yourself down the Streif in Kitzbuhel,” she told the publication. For non-skiers, the Streif is one of the most challenging downhill slopes in the world, which according to Goggia is too much for gay athletes to take on.
