The Hollywood Reporter and talk with Once Upon a Time showrunners about last night’s same-sex storyline.

Out bisexual boxer Nicola Adams will be competing in Rio 2016. The Olympic flyweight champion took top honors at the European qualifying event in Turkey, telling BBC Sport:

“Winning this gold shows I am still a strong force in Europe and it has set me up nicely for the World Championships. I want to go there and win a gold medal. Hopefully I can become a European champion, world champion and Olympic champion all in one year.”
