Gratuitous Matthew Mitcham

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more beautiful man. Have you? (Photos by John McRae except where stated)

For those of you who aren’t avid readers of this blog, this is Matthew Mitcham, 20 year old Aussie diving gold medallist at the Beijing Olympics last summer. Matt’s now an honest-to-goodness gay icon, having come back from burn-out to coming out before the Games and then coming from behind to produce the highest ranked dive in Olympic history on his last jump. Whilst his example should inspire us all, I wanted to give you this post for far less noble reasons. Can you guess what they are?

And I’m sorry it’s not an umblemished original, but I couldn’t resist adding it. Those eyes! That smile!

  2. Yeah Matthew is a star, and thank you for actually crediting my photo, unlike most of the other bloggers out there. 🙂
