Alex Despatie: Fina World Championships `09

Alexandre Despatie at the 13th Fina World Championships

I spent my afternoon watching re-runs of Thursday’s 13th Fina World Championship diving competition in Italy. Why? I had to support my secret boyfriend, of course. Alexandre Despatie. Yeah, we’re so secret that even he doesn’t even know we’re an item… yet.

"Hey! Look at me! I'm awesome."

Despatie and synchro partner, Reuban Ross, took home the bronze medal in the Men’s 3m Synchro Springboard final last week. To add to his impressive collection of medals, this Thursday, Despatie clutched another bronze medal in what was supposed to be his signature winning event – Men’s 3m Springboard. He lost to China’s He Chong and fell short to beating USA’s Troy Dumais for 2nd.

Perhaps next time my hunky bf will get back into gold form. He has to…. for me. And maybe next time he’ll revert back to his old hairstyle too. woof.
