Website Samesame today posted an article suggesting that aussieBum was very close to signing a  sponsorship deal to make Matthew Mitcham the face (and butt?) of their brand. I think the two are a perfect fit.

Unfortunately, after being in touch with aussieBum today, they denied a deal is done or close to being done. They are very proud of Matthew and his stunning victory in Beijing, but Matthew isn’t even back in Australia yet and hasn’t spoken to anyone about a deal. He has signed with a management agency, but no deals are done yet. But I think I speak for all of us when I say I’m seriously looking forward to the aussieBum shoots that may hopefully happen in the future with the sexy Matt.
