Matthew Mitcham: And Tonight Matthew's Going To Be...

An article appeared on Guardian Online earlier this evening; 'Gay Games in Cologne set to welcome 10,000 competitors'.
"Around 10,000 gay and lesbian athletes from around the globe are expected to descend on the western German city of Cologne tomorrow to participate in the international Gay Games," Kate Connolly reports.
She also tells us; "The Australian Olympic gymnast Matthew Mitcham, who won a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and is one of the few major athletes to have ever come out, will open the event."
Matthew Mitcham is not a gymnast, he's a diver.
Everybody makes mistakes - Fagburn probably does it on a daily basis - but considering the article's subject matter and seeing as Matthew is indeed one of the few major athletes to have ever come out - and went on to win an Olympic gold medal winner to boot - it's pretty insulting to get the sport that he excels at wrong.
