    Talk about a recessed chin.

  • Mimi

    The recessed chin is what makes him a fabolous swimmer. Less water resistance!

  • Grace

    Gay! He’s been outed in Australia a few months ago. He denied it of course, but this picture… he looks gay! Not that there is anything with it.

  • Cookie

  • Jamie


  • felicity

    Gay or not he still seems like a real sweetie! :)

  • Justjaded

    I vote “YES!”, he looks like a ‘mo (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

  • The narcissist

    One thing you shallow people can’t deny is that he’s a fantastic swimmer.

  • ssaaa

    whats wrong wif him/? he suppose to be hot


    Wow I still remember his olympics. I don’t think I ever saw him in clothes before

    He seems to be aging very strangely. He was quite good looking as a teenager, and now his features just look out of proportion. His nose seems to be continuing to grow as well as his cheekbones.

    He was a guest on one of the episodes of Australia’s Next Top Model that recently finished up its season. He seemed to be a very nice guy that the girls looked up to and could relate to easily.

  • jess

    Why are their so many negative comments. He was a fantastic swimmer who made Australia proud all these years and now hes doing different things in his life and i don’t think his sexuality is of vital importance to anyone except himself.

    He’s always been very decent, humble and a true australian, besides he looks nice in these photos. You go thorpi!!

  • Tony the tiger

    I TAPPED THAT IN THE SPRING OF 2006 in WEST HOLLYWOOD!!! He is a total flamer and doesn’t even try to hide it when he is out and about in West Hollywood. Sadly he has totally let himself go. Very soft to the touch. Yet pliable.

  • eewwww

    of course he is gay!

  • ****

    Yeah, I have an infallible gayday and he definitely gay. Why deny it? Ah well, to quote Kylie Minogue: “She’s in denile”.

  • felix

    Gay or strait, I don’t care just write more about him!


    I don’t care he is gay or not. He is the best swimmer. I love watching him swim.
