Biography

Australian swimmer, an Olympic-2000 hopeful in the 100m, 200m and 400m freestyle events. Sometimes called "Torpedo" or "Flipper," he is known as a poised, confident, modest and calm teenager. Swimming from the time he was eight years old, he keeps up practice with about 20 hours a week in the water. Thorpe already has several world records under his swimming belt. He broke ten world freestyle records (some improving his own time) in nine months, from 8/22/1999 to 5/15/ 2000. Of these, he broke three world records in three days at the Olympics selection meet in Sydney. Winning the 400m freestyle World Championship title in January 1998, he became the youngest male world champion in swimming history. Ian Thorpe is the Young Australian of the Year for 2000. The 6'5" athlete won a total of five gold, three silver and one bronze medal in the 2000 (Sydney) and 2004 (Athens) Olympics.

His mom, Margaret, is a teacher and his dad, Ken, a gardener. Sister Christina is also a swimmer. A big man, Thorpe’s size 17 feet are a bit of an embarrassment, though he’s glad they have now stopped growing. Thorpe has suffered from migraines since he was nine or ten, although less frequently in recent years. He defied the pain and nausea of a migraine to break a world record at the world short-course championships in Hong Kong in 1999.

Thorpe had a very difficult four months in early 2000. He had to deal with a broken ankle and was accused by a German swimming coach of being a drug cheat when drug test was botched in Berlin. In early 2000, there was a swim suit controversy when he featured, in cheeky TV ads for one of his sponsors, one of their black body-length "seal suits," alongside some real seals on the starting blocks of a swimming pool. Thorpe declared that he will wear a full-length body swim suit in his Olympic swimming races. The bodysuit (which has also been called the "frogsuit," and "Mr. Condom") has proven controversial, with some people claiming they add buoyancy and other advantages to swimmers. Full-body suits were cleared for use in the Olympics by the International Amateur Swimming Federation (FINA) in late 1999.

Pin-up boy for many Australian teenagers, Thorpe, who's obviously very busy with training (and only 17) doesn't have a steady girlfriend. As a teen, he likes vacation-park rides, ice-cream, cartoons and cookies, water-skiing, computer games and grunge music.

Thorpe quit school at 14, studying at home and reading voraciously. At school he usually scored in the top 5% of every subject except for mathematics.
