Kenworthy eventually came out publicly in a 2015 ESPN Magazine cover story after he had come out to his inner circle. At a Winter Olympics where memorable made-in-America moments have been fewer and farther between than either the United States Olympic Committee or NBC - which paid $963 million in rights fees for the Games in South Korea - would like, this kiss on television between a handsome snowboarder and the man in his life added some PG-13 sizzle to the prime-time telecast.
