If it's Thorpe, there sure has been changes in his belly button and his nipples1

BTW, Ian Thorpe escaped being a victim of 9/11 because he left his vantage point there, to retrieve the camera he left at his hotel. This, according to one report I've read.

He had charisma to burn, at the olympics. If this is he, there's still a lot, there.

At least he is still trimming his body hair. Something looks fishy though.

I think Ian looks great....either way he looks like he'd be a stud in bed. I submit a request to any of the TMZ TV staff members to post photos of themselves on this site. (Yeah, you are all in the public eye now...so no complaints or excuses for the intrusion into your life, or photos of not looking perfect).

Thorpedo is 26! He ripped on Michael Phelps relentlessly at the Olympics like he couldn't win. Well, guess what, Ian? While you're a washed up hasbeen at 26, Phelpsie will be winning even more Gold Medals in London 4 years from now.....oh. yeah. Phelps will be 27 then. Why didn't you compete in the 2008 Olympics again, Thorpedo? What a loser.
