“I’m OFFICIALLY on the team for London 2012! Second Olympics, here I come,” announces one of the best divers in the world.
Matthew Mitcham, who won gold in the Beijing Olympics four years ago, battled to come back from an abdominal injury last year but managed to end 2011 on a high – winning the 10m platform gold in December. He did it again last month, which led the Australian Olympic Committee to decide he’s fit for London.
‘’I believe I can win gold again,” the openly gay 24-year-old told the AAP. “I’ve done it before and know what it takes.”
Mitcham has been sharing up-to-date info and photos via his official Facebook page, where he has over 50,000 fans. See it here.
Good luck in London Matty!
