Ian Thorpe: A careless attitude poses threat of losing an arm

Ian Thorpe

The five times Olympic champion, the legendary swimmer Ian Thorpe has contracted two infections in his shoulder because of an unsuccessful surgery at a hospital. The 31 year old has been taking anti-depressants and also was treated in a rehab for depression. Because of the fact that he was unsuccessful in making it to the London Olympics 2012, the sports star had been battling depression. On one side, where the Australian media reported that he may be at risk of losing one arm, his manager however, said otherwise. One thing is for sure that he may not be able to comeback at the commonwealth games this year. But we pray that Thorpe recovers quickly and gets into the pool soon.
