Matt Shirvington was quite a nice looking lad when he was a young athlete but looks will only get you so far. I suppose he was an Olympic competitor at some time. Now I think he commentates on sport for a commercial television station. So, even though he was nice enough looking, I would have forgotten about him and only had a vague recollection of him when he popped up on screens for the London Olympics, except he has really stuck in my memory for some reason.
As for the Olympics, just wait for the howls from the Australian Institute of Sport that they need more money. I am writing this halfway through the Olympics and so far it has been a disaster for Australia, not because we have only won one gold medal, but because of the 'craic'. Craic, pronounced crack, is a useful English/Irish word that means talk, but it has connotations. There has been far too much craic.
Go Australia and bedeck our halls with silver.
