Danell Leyva Show

At a post-competition gala, US gymnast Danell Leyva strips off his leotard in a crowd-pleasing performance.

The event wasn’t a medal competition, but a venue for the athletes to celebrate their time at the Olympic Games. And Danell Leyva did just that. During a routine set to Pitball’s ‘Fireball,’ Leyva sported a few dance moves and parallel bar tricks before going shirtless.

So not only is Danell Leyva an out-spoken advocate for LGBT rights, he certainly knows how to put on a show.
