This may be of interest to swimmers.
Murray Rose, Australian Olympic swimming gold medallist and former world
record holder (1500m and 400m), is appearing on television adverti***ts in
Australia for a television station. He talks at the edge of a pool while
standing in the pool and leaning on the edge in a relaxed manner, whilst
talking in a blokey Australian manner and accent. Dawn Fraser appears in
the adveri***t also.
The following parallels between Murray Rose and the dead 'people's princess'
may interest some.

I guess this is where the parallels end. There is no evidence Murray Rose
had an angst ridden and miserable existence.
