In total, he has won 11 World Championship golds, the third-highest number of any swimmer.
"One of the world's greatest athletes"
In 2012 Ian made his TV debut as a commentator for the BBC at the Olympic Games in London and released an autobiography titled 'This Is Me' which touches upon his battle with depression and the pressures that go along with being an athletic icon. He is continuing his career in the swimming world as a broadcaster and also founded the Ian Thorpe Fountain for Youth which raises funds for research into childhood illnesses and sponsors a school in Beijing.
