We Think Andy Murray Should Also Win a Gold Medal in Feminism

A BBC reporter congratulated Andy Murray on being the first tennis player to win two Olympic gold medals — but Murray wasn't having it.

Instead, Murray replied, "Well, to defend the singles title, I think Venus and Serena won about four each."

Talk about a comeback!

Murray was definitely right as Venus and Serena Williams won individual gold medals in 2000 and 2012, as well as three doubles titles together in Sydney, Beijing, and London.

Take a look at the interview below.

This isn't the first time Murray has spoken out about gender bias in tennis.

About year ago he said, "Have I become a feminist? Well, if being a feminist is about fighting so that a woman is treated like a man then, yes, I suppose I have."

Should Murray be our next #MAKERSMen? We think so!
