The Thorpedo..........

Being a huge swimming fan and an active swimmer myself, I have to say that Ian Thorpe is absolutley AMAZING, like he must be half fish........I have been watching the FINA world championships in Japan all of this week with so much amazement, how much faster can he go, and the way that he comes across, well he seems like such a nice young man, a real ambassador for representing good sportsmanship. Bit of a pity about what happend to the women's relay team, but I guess the rest of the team have pulled through that one ok.........Anyway up tonight is the 1500m and there is no more King Kieren, lets hope Hackett does well.......

Ausse, Aussie, Aussie...........oi, oi, oi

Hi Aurora, I was just driving back from the school bus and heard a sound grab from Grant Hackett on the radio. He must have broken the1500m world record. Ian is still a baby, yet to hit his straps. Woohoo

Excuse me borrowing this space in your topic, but I recall having Ian Thorpe/ Russell Crowe appreciation chat with bonovista. This topic may catch her eye...hey BV......if you own the same edition of "In His Own Words, Bono" by Dave Thompson, go to chapter headed "Mother Records" Page 42. Adam looks like Russell Crowe
Thanks Aurora,hope I haven't killed your thread mate. Some of my fondest memories from school days was travelling with the swimming team.A new girl came along in Year 9 and bumped me off the team..can't really complain, her name was Kerry Saxby, she was far more dedicated than me, obviously. I was just thinking this morning I have to do something about my lungs and thought I'd like to get back into the pool. Might wait till summer though.

Actually trash, I wouldnt be surprised if he was. I thought so too, also *not that there's anything wrong with that*.

I worked with a girl (who will remain nameless) who is on the Aus soccer team. She told me they have a 2 year roll out plan to 'bring him out'. He apparently has PR's working on it for him as he is such an ambassador. Etc, etc, etc. All that aside, hes still a fantastic swimmer. I hope he doesn't crash and burn from the pressure.

Honestly, I hope he DOES come out if in fact he is gay!!

Dammit!! No more shame! Its not "his problem"! Its the problem of all those who see it as a problem. BUT we will NOT get into all that gay-hate thing again.
He is a gifted athlete. No doubt.
(Almost as much of a "superman" as Lance Armstongggggggg!!! YEAH buddy!!!!)

I have heard the exact same thing, from someone who has a family member who is in the world of professional swimming, and I must admit that I could see Thorpey being gay, he has such a nice persona, now if all of this is true, I really hope that it does not distract from his swimming, I would hate to see or hear of Aussie yobbos bagging him if he is gay, cause after all it should only be his swimming that is open for discussion
