It’s official: I have decided to finally retire after a looooooooong but very rewarding diving career. So much gratitude to my long suffering partner Lachlan, Chava, NSWIS, DA, family, friends and all you friends I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet! I remember the support I got when I came out before my Olympic debut in 2008 and it helped me to keep sharing my story just as candidly. So, it’s Peace Out to my diving career and a big Heeeeeeey to the rest of my media and entertainment and everything else career! Thank you to everyone for sharing in my [dirty word]… #journey hahaha Xx
