Ian Thorpe

I am not one for hero worship.

But I make an exception for Ian Thorpe.
He has shown many young people how
dedication and commitment to training,
will pay off with results. He is a real talent.

His commitment to Aborignal issues important
in a country which struggles with its past.

Yet, its now time to kick him and tarnish his
reputation. The press love to build you up
so that they can knock you down.

Thorpe is being linked to abnormal test results.
Note abnormal doesn't mean positive.

He has already retired. This is just nasty.
Taken last night in St Kilda, Melbourne.
