SAS Australia 2023 isn’t Matthew’s first reality television rodeo. He took out second place on Channel 7’s Dancing With the Stars.
Before that, he etched his place into sports history as the first Australian male Olympian to take out the gold in 84 years. His 2008 gold-medal winning dive came after three missed-wins in the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Although his victory wasn’t the first or last of his accomplishments, Mathew’s epic contributions to diving from then on were recognised and gave premise to his Sports Australia Hall of Fame induction.
In the years following, he married his longtime partner, Luke Rutherford in Belgium, while surrounded by their family and friends.
What Is Matthew Mitcham Doing Now?
Recently, the sports icon has since swapped his athletic career for a life on stage. He’s set to star in a production of Strangers in Between at a theatre in Camberwell.
When he’s not filming reality shows like SAS Australia 2023, Matthew Mitcham is making content on Instagram and OnlyFans.
Will his varied pursuits take him to the next level on SAS Australia 2023? Only time will tell…
