Olympic Swimmer Ian Thorpe Comes Out As Gay


Olympic Swimmer Ian Thorpe Comes Out As Gay

31-year-old Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe has come out in an interview with Australia’s The Daily Telegraph. Thorpe won three gold medals and two silver at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. He picked up 2 more at the 2004 Games in Athens. Thorpe has denied rumors that he was gay for years, and even claimed to only have ever dated women in his 2012 autobiography, This Is Me. (Apparently, it wasn’t.) Thorpe also admits in the interview to having struggled with serious depression, which he ascribes to trying to keep the secret of his sexuality for so long. Here’s hoping Thorpe finds some peace and happiness.
