Amini Tuitavake Britteon Fonua is a Tongan competitive swimmer and an advocate for LGBTQI rights. Fonua's swimming career began at the Roskill Swimming Club based at Cameron Pool in Auckland, coached by Sandra Burrow from 1999–2007. He broke numerous Auckland and New Zealand Age Group Records. In the Fall of 2008, Fonua enrolled at Texas A&M on a swimming scholarship. While at Texas A&M he was a peer voted Team Captain, Big XII Conference Champion, NCAA All-American, and recipient of The Aggie Heart Award. He graduated with a Telecommunication and Multi-Media degree, with a Minor in Creative Writing in May 2013. Mr. Fonua was "the first Tongan swimmer to win a gold medal in international competition, when he took gold in the 50 meter breaststroke at the 2010 Oceania Swimming Championships. He served as his nation's flag-bearer in the 2012 Summer Olympics Parade of Nations. Fonua went on to create history by becoming the first ever Tongan athlete to ever win 3 Gold medals at a Pacific Games by sweeping the Breaststroke events, setting 2 Games Records in the process (50 m and 100 m Breaststroke). He is the only Tongan athlete in history to ever hold dual Oceania and Pacific Games titles. Fonua was instrumental in condemning a story that The Daily Beast published on Olympic athletes using Grindr at the 2016 Rio games, that outed Olympic athletes.
