One year out, Matthew Mitcham on lists of athletes to watch at London Olympics

New Gay Games Ambassador Matthew Mitcham will be looking to defend his Olympic gold in just one year in London at the 2012 Summer Olympics. Sports Illustrated lists him as one of their 50 athletes to watch for:

Matthew Mitcham
Australia -- Diving
In 2008, Mitcham became the first Australian male to win an Olympic gold medal in diving since 1924. He dominated the 10-meter platform, finishing with the highest single-dive score in Olympic history. The 23-year-old Mitcham is one of a handful of openly gay athletes competing in the Olympics, though he missed the recent World Championships due to an abdominal injury.
