Shocking picture of Ian Crocker. It’s not so long ago that the was in shape. Really sad. Such a great swimmer he was.

Eugene

^ Actually Crocker never looked like a world class athlete, especially a sprinter 🙂 Not really muscular and a bit fat at the same time.

Craig Lord

Relatively speaking, Eugene 🙂 though I know what you mean. Any perceived softness/fat (ha ha, say many a mortal 🙂 – or call it what you will – I put down to pliable – Thorpe, and lots of others can be similarly described.
