At the ripe old age of twenty-four Australia's arguably greatest swimmer has retired and is moving onto other things. Because he wasn't an ocker bore, but still a high sporting achiever, he made me proud and I hope many of you Aussies.
He does not seem to have a girl friend, he does not seem to have a boyfriend. He mixes in high circles, but no one is telling anything. He is not seen at 'the clubs', or if he is, it is not reported. There seems to be media silence on his private life. Perhaps he does not have much of one, but I smell a conspiracy.
But what is he to do now? One wag on the wireless suggested he be put out to stud. I am ok with that if I can do the milking. I will leave the insemination to someone else.
