Matthew Mitchum, 20, has become the first ever Australian to represent his country at the Olympics as an openly gay athlete! There was no carefully orchestrated PR release. Nor was it a response to threatened blackmail from a spurned lover or bitter rival. No, Matthew just casually slipped the information into the conversation while talking to a reporter about the upcoming games, probably unaware of the milestone he was setting. Check out a full report in the UK press here.

Congratulations Matthew. Aussielicious sends you all the support in the world.
