What a great way to start the day, finding out that our openly gay Olympic diver, Matthew Mitcham has taken out gold in the 10m platform diving competition over night, putting an end to the ideas of a chinese clean sweep of the diving pool. I watched the semi finals yesterday and Matthew was in spectacular form. According to this report, Matthew had a couple of dodgy early dives in the finals but came back with several tens to take out the competition! Congratulations Matthew, we are so proud. I’m even more proud that you can stand up and publicly thank your partner Lachlan, and that it’s not sensationalised!

Update: Here’s the Youtube version of the video that was here earlier. Hopefully now everyone will be able to watch it.
