And now the Chicago native is the first out college athlete to represent Estonia at the 2017 World University Games.

1 year ago today, I made the best decision of my life to swim and study at Oakland University! @oaklandswimming

‘I have always wanted to compete on an international level and these games are a great way to represent my country and university,’ Kasemets told chicago.gopride.com.

‘I am very proud, honored to be selected. It has been a dream of mine for many years to compete at an international meet at the level such as this one.’

It’s the bare naked necessities

Kasemet publicly came out as gay in 2015 in an article for OutSports, although he had been out to his team since he joined.

He said he never really came out in high school, mainly because he ‘was there to learn and swim’.

But when Kasemet started college, he felt he need to address the topic to stop any talk and gossip.

‘There was still very much of that when most of the girl’s team decided to be my best friends from the moment I stepped on campus. Some how they knew. Ha. I love the girls for it,’ he said.

‘The very first weekend on campus at a team event, the two senior captains pulled me aside. They were very hesitant, dancing around the issue.

Thank you @jacobcarlin for a great weekend!

‘“If you’ve got a question, guys,” I said, “go ahead and ask it.”

‘They very politely asked if I was gay, and I told them the truth. They had absolutely no problem with it. It was very refreshing.

‘The thing they were worried about was how comfortable I was and they wanted to make sure that I was comfortable addressing the team.’
