4 videos from when Ian Thorpe competed in Singapore


Courtesy of The Sports Pages, both interviews and interesting clips from the poolside. Dig his camera entourage here in the first video …

And here, the use of some white iPad-looking tablet for video review. We see more and more of that on the pool deck now,

Here the mix-zone interview after the 100 IM final. “I was doing really well and then the breaststroke happened”. For some reason the winner Chad Le Clos gets to be interviewed about Ian Thorpe, not so classy move by the media :-/

And here the mix-zone interview with him and coach Gennadi Touretski after failing to qualify for the 100 butterfly final
