Which events is he doing?

I think he can, and it's tempting to back yes, but will he beat Phelps?

Yes.

Freak athletes don't change. They remain freak.

Though I think Thorpey should be more focused on coming out of the closet than on a swimming comeback.

It's a ridiculous market and only a fool would bet on it?

I think old mate Rod is talking about the huge price differences in the 3 different markets

Yeah, I see that now. Like I say, I've been blinded by Julia ever since you boys got me excited about her in that other thread

Nah, that is a big difference though. $5.50 compared to $1.85

Clearly Luxbet have the balls to think with their head and not follow other markets.

careful read the fine print, some are for individual events only some are for any including team relays

Good point Darren. Ignore the luxbet odds then as that is for the individual event only. Sportsbet and Centrebet offering for both individual and relays

I know very little about swimming but if you didn't catch Susie O'Neil's interview with the ABC she said the following;

1) That the current world swimmers are swimming faster than Thorpe's fastest time.
2) That he would struggle and probably be unlikely to be selected for any individual events even if he qualified.
3) That he would more likely be included and be more value in the relay team.
4) That he was very badly out of shape and might not be able to be in shape in time.
5) That she said the same things about Huegil but got it wrong.

You should recruit Rostos. I reckon he would make a good financial planner.

Rostos would have seen Storm, Westpoint and Opes Prime a mile away
