That’s one way to show you’re ready for London 2012 – Matthew Mitcham, champion Aussie diver, climbed the Olympic rings at dawn to snap a stunning shot for twitter, seen above.
Mitcham is a Beijing gold medallist in the 10-metres platform. He was the only non-Chinese diver to win gold in 2008.
The 24-year-old had previously said that London 2012 might be his last attempt for another Olympic gold. However, he said he has reconsidered since arriving here.
"The Olympics is really addictive ... there's nothing like it and I remember saying in Beijing that I never want to miss another Olympic Games again. And I had forgotten that until I got here,” said Mitcham at a news conference.
Coming off of an injury, Mitcham is ready to compete after spending a lot of time mentally and physically preparing for London.
Men’s single diving events do not start until August.
