    (March 2, 1988- )
    Born in Brisbane, Australia

    Only openly gay male athlete at the Beijing Olympics
    He suffered depression and anxiety as a teen.
    He trained so intensely he developed a stress fracture in his back and thirteen cysts in his wrists.
    He quit for six months after burning out (2006-07).
    He has a pierced tongue.
    His partner traveled to Beijing on a grant from Johnson & Johnson's Athlete Family Support Program.
    He said of his fellow divers' reaction to his coming out, 'They don't seem to mind that I'm a big homo.'
    He won his gold medal by recording the largest single-dive score in Olympic history, 112.10.
    Cyd Ziegler of Outsports.com said, 'Just like Jesse Owens was a great hope for black athletes, Mitcham is for gay athletes.'
