After days of speculation our old mate and Australia sporting hero Ian Thorpe has released his advertisement launching a pool cleaning “spoof” about him starting a small home based Pool Service business.  This was part of a larger campaign by Optus to promote their small business competition whereby you can win a Ticket to Rio Olympics.  Multiple websites were creating banter about what was happening and now we all know. The quote from the Pool + Spa website was “No, Ian Thorpe is not setting up a pool company”.
