17-year-old NZ boy swimmer divorces parents to date 24-year old US gold medalist

    A different one for the Poin files:

    A 17-year-old boy swimmer from New Zealand was blocked by his parents from competing in swimming events in the hopes of eventually qualifying for their Olympic team because they did not approve of his relationship with 24-year old U.S. gold medalist Rhi Jeffrey. A judge ruled against the parents.


    I gotta admit, I found it funny to read the coach's quote about how the kid is swimming faster thanks to the relationship.

    She probably refuses to put out if he doesn't get a PR. Heck, it's rather brilliant if you think about it.
