Matthew Mitcham on Aussie stamp

imageLike this would ever happen in the U.S.

Matthew Mitcham, the gay Australian diver who shocked the Beijing Olympics by snagging a gold in the 10-meter platform, will soon be featured on a series of Olympic stamps from the Australian Post. But, according to a report from Outsports, he has yet to snag a sponsorship deal.


Mitcham has said nothing about any of this, since the Morning Herald reports that he is vacationing in France with his partner, Lachlan Fletcher (photo), and won’t be back until next month. It is way too early to make a judgment yet about whether Mitcham being open about his sexuality will have a negative impact on his endorsement potential. He has by choice taken himself out of the limelight for some down time, and his manager did not return repeated phone calls from the Morning Herald.
