Thorpe and Klim to compete against each on Friday


Update, not ‘tomorrow’ (as in Thursday), but on Friday …

It has been six years since Ian Thorpe and Michael Klim last went head-to-head in a competitive 100m freestyle race, but tomorrow they’ll do it again, returning to the same Melbourne venue for the Victorian state titles where Thorpe pipped Klim at the nationals in 2006 with a 49.28 against 49.38. But, Klim might have a problem, as the telegraph writes:

A decision will be made on Thursday whether 34-year-old Michael Klim, another Olympic champion on the comeback trail, will swim at the state titles after suffering a setback with a shoulder injury.
