Where Did The Thorpedo Go?

Before Michael Phelps there was The Thorpedo - a hot* little Aussie who swam faster than a fish. I think he might want to get back in that pool! Yikes!

THEN:

You and Perez Hilton both mentioned him in the same day - how funny!

Very entertaining before and after pics.

Yikes! Is that really the same person? If that's not motivation to get to the pool I don't know what is... ;)

That is funny, Molly! Who knew I'm up there with Perez Hilton (uhh, wait, probably not a good thing). But that was a funny article you linked from there - when we were in Australia the typical response from anyone when you asked about Ian Thorpe was "He's a pooftah"

Wow - at least it looks like he's enjoying his retirement, right?!? You almost feel sorry for the poor guy :(

I used to love Ian Thrope! He was SO hot....notsomuch now! :)) HA! I bet keeping up that body was exhausting! I don't blame hime!

oh man i TOTALLY feel sorry for him.

i wonder if he got anorexic or unhealthy at all when he was racing and now his metabolism is out of control in the other direction, like hanging on to every possible calorie. or maybe he's just a partyboy.
