He is called Thorpedo

Ian Thorpe

Ian Thorpe

The man called Thorpedo is in Australia. He is Ian Thorpe. He is the wonderful swimmer who won the gold medal at the Olympic Games repeatedly. This nickname also combines soap and a torpedo. The speed in which he swims is transmitted well.

He is very popular also in prosperous Japan for swimming. Therefore, a drink called Thorpedo in which he was engaged in development was also put on the market.

Although he has returned to private life now, he is doing his best in support of children of an incurable disease, and the work as a sightseeing ambassador of Australia.
