Brazilian Olympian Opens Up about Relationship in Sweet Video Post

Saturday November 27, 2021

A Brazilian Olympian has gone public about his same-sex relationship with a sweet video. 28-year old gymnast Arthur Nory Mariano, who won a bronze medal at the 2015 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, shared a seriously cute video of him and his beau. In an Instagram post, he gushed over João Otávio Tasso, the broadcast media marketing analyst he is dating, while wishing him a happy birthday, reports Pink News.


"In an aggressively adorable montage video set to Passenger's 'Let It Go,' the pair goof around, dine out, drink wine with their two dogs Tokyo McArthur and Rita Lee McJohn, take bubble baths and drive on motorcycles," adds Pink News.

"The phrase 'in health or sickness, in victory or defeat, in joy or sadness' never fit so much," Nory wrote in the caption.

"And there we are every day walking together.

"Thank you for always being by my side. I will always be yours.

"Congratulations, João, many years of life and continue to be that amazing person ????, even if you are a Scorpio (always good to blame the sign). "We're together. Love u"

"Nory, who has never formally come out, has competed in three Olympic games and bagged a gold medal at the 2019 world championships," writes Pink News. "In 2016, US gymnast Simone Biles referred to Nory as her "Brazilian boyfriend" before clarifying that she meant it as a term of endearment."

Nory is also a model. Since 2019, he has been the face of the Philippines-based international clothing brand BENCH, fronting the brand's menswear campaign in Brazil and Latin America.
