Matthew Mitcham: 'I'm a homo'

Based on this item from the Sydney Morning Herald, gold medalist and totally out Matthew Mitcham gave a brief yet killer acceptance speech when he won Australia's Sports Performer of the Year Award late last month.

Not Mitcham. Marching up to the lectern, he grabbed the mike and simply said "How good is this? I am at the GQ Man of the Year awards as SPORTSMAN of the year and I'm a homo!" The crowd, as we say in the trade, went wild.
