Watch Matthew Mitcham's annual portrait get more and more handsome every year

New, comment

Matthew Mitcham has sat for a portrait by John McRae each year since 2008. And each year he gets more handsome.

Openly gay diver Matthew Mitcham has had an annual portrait done by John McRae every year since he won Olympic gold in 2008. In addition to him getting 365.25 days older each year, it's cool to see the different hair styles Mitcham chose to adorn for the portrait. The big question at hand: What was going on in 2008?!

Mitcham shared the series on Twitter:

It's awesome to see Mitcham mature from year to year - and frankly, each year become more and more handsome.
