Ian Thorpe splits from longtime manager David Flaskas


According to The Daily Telegraph, Ian Thorpe has split from his former manager David Flaskas to join James Erskine at SEL, shocking many in Australian swimming considering Flaskas has been with Thorpe since the outset. “The fact Thorpe is Australia’s most decorated Olympian should have set him up for life. But he’s far from it, and that is why he has turned to Erskine.” Via OpposingViews
