Australian diver Matthew Mitcham says he will dive naked if he successfully defends the gold medal he won in Beijing during the 10-meter platform dive.
Outsports reports on SB Nation, that the openly gay diver pledged to dive without his swim suit if he wins the gold, despite battling abdominal injury and a crowded 10-meter field.
Mitcham is scheduled to compete Friday and Saturday.
