Matthew-Mitcham.jpegOpenly gay Australian Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham has promised to dive nude if he takes home a gold medal. Is this tempting the gods? It sure as hell is tempting me.

Mitcham tweeted yesterday:

If I win gold at #London2012 I will dive off 10m naked to celebrate. RT @HeyGibbles: Will you do a skinny dip of honour if you get gold?

Unlike the overly excited rowers out there, those tight speedos still leave a lot to the imagination. Divers could easily be as tucked as RuPaul and we would never know - until now.

I would love to witness a celebrator skinny-dip. Hell, even though I can't swim, if I had a pool, I'd take one myself to celebrate his celebration.

There is some debate over whether this is overly sexualizing what should be a competition of athletic ability, not a Magic Mike sequel, but I am fine with both.

Come on America - it is time to root for an Australian root. You know you wanna see some gold.
