  1. “Walkabout”

    Be careful using that word …. :-) …… If he’s in Australia, some Aborigines just might take offense using it for something as “trivial” as the purpose here.

    Anyway, he needs to walk towards me here so I can ‘pull up’ to tighten those briefs to better show off his swimmer’s ‘hip’ and ….. errr ….. everything else a swimmer and diver can show off.

    1. Please don’t use Aborigines, as this is a massive political and social offense. It shows a certain lack of etiquette. The correct form is Aboriginals…

      1. First, there’s essentially no way I would ever have known that not being in Australia or New Zealand. And anyway, Aborigine is a NOUN whereas Aboriginal is an ADJECTIVE [and NOT “Aboriginals” — you don’t pluralize an adjective]. So, while YOU may think Aborigines is some sort of political/social offense, just as much as Aboriginals is a grammar offense to become a social offense [as well].

        And my spelling is American and NOT the “Queen’s English.”

    2. WALKABOUT is the English word / phrase for some Aborigine act. Many hippy type Americans use the word / phrase WALKABOUT since the early 1980’s, and many do not think of it as trivial. May be you forget them. Please for get not us STREET WALKERS who go ABOUT the urban jungles, et al. :)

    3. Suspect the walkabout is the English word for some particular thing Aborigines do. The street walkers do walk about the urban jungles [ & please for us not ]. The athletic swimmers walk about their competitors, their equipment ( which differs site to site ), &c. OH ! For get not the old 50;s and 60;s hippies who walk about ! ha ha ha ha ha :-)

  2. Wanna see more pics from that swim meet. He is gorgeous, but i bet he wasnt the only cute one out there that day.

  3. This is the same swimmer featured in Sporty Sunday 29. As an Australian I have to wonder how it is that a swimmer in Ljubljana, Slovenia, is wearing a pair of Australian-made Funky Trunks brand swimming togs of the Bloody Bewdie design featuring Australian expressions (G’Day mate, You Bloody Bewdie, Crikey, Gone Walkabout), brands (Four ‘N Twenty meat pies, XXXX Gold beer), motifs (wattle, boomerangs, koala, gum trees), signs (kangaroos, sharks, last pub 897 km) and iconic landmarks (Ettamogah Pub, Sydney Harbour Bridge). Good to see that Australia is having some cultural impact on the rest of the world!

    1. “As an Australian I have to wonder how it is that a swimmer in Ljubljana, Slovenia, is wearing a pair of Australian-made Funky Trunks brand swimming togs of the Bloody Bewdie design”

      How about he bought them at Sydney’s Airport gift shop? :-)

    2. Australian swimming influence on swimmers of Ljubljana, Slovenia … ? OH ! What a proponent ! 🏊🏼 🏊🏼
