A Sad Day In Swimming...But Good On Him!
'Thorpedo' has announced his retirement. He did it in the style and class we are used to seeing from him. What a fine young man of just 24 years he is. I have to be honest and admit I had a tear in my eye watching him speak today during his press conference. He is such a great role model for all young people. During his swimming life, he inspired us all, I'm sure. We will miss Thorpie, but let us respect his decision as it is, in the end, his decision to make and his only.
Best wishes to this wonderful young Aussie...may his future be bright and may all his dreams come true.
