Thomas Fraser-Holmes suffers a Thorpe moment at Australian Champs


Read Herald Sun

Gold Coast rising star Thomas Fraser-Holmes suffered an Ian Thorpe moment of drama on the opening day of competition at the Australian swimming championships in Adelaide today.

Fraser-Holmes flopped into the pool as he desperately tried to avoid a false start for the men’s 400m freestyle event.

It was the identical event and similar fall to what Thorpe suffered at the 2004 Olympic trials in Sydney.
