Pure Poison IconI know it’s Summer, and a Friday at that, but was a man swimming in the wrong lane really the biggest story in Melbourne?

Thorpe

ALBERT Park local Peter Baker was completing his regular swim at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre yesterday, when he suddenly felt the surge of an obviously strong swimmer – one who had no right being in what Baker believed was a slow lane.

Baker had not realised that he had been in a lane set aside for swimmers competing at this week’s Victorian swimming titles, which start today.

If a chance encounter with Ian Thorpe is now worthy of the front page I have my concerns about the direction that The Age is going in.
