Thorpe back in training, targets 2013 Worlds and maybe 2016 Olympics


Ian Thorpe has already resumed full training after crashing out of contention for the London Olympics a fortnight ago, now preparing for next year’s world championships in Barcelona and maybe the Rio Olympics in 2016.

“I have literally no idea when I’ll be back in competition,” Thorpe said.
“It will be sometime during this year but I most definitely haven’t made any decision on which competition it will be.
“The next phase for me is really a pretty significant training block.”
