Old News But Good News? [15 Jan 2011|10:29am]

immaculate
Hello there all. It's been over a year since anyone has posted here, but I know that there must be some of you still out there, lurking in the shadows and waiting with baited breath for more news about our favorite Athens 2004 Olympic OTP.

First I bring some new news about each of them, though unfortunately not together:

1. Ian Thorpe is maybe (possibly, okay, probably not) training for London 2012.
2. Pieter van den Hoogenband is 100% not kidding going to space camp.


And in the old but amazing news that I am disappointed no one ever posted about: Winnenmetrespect.nl
This whole thing, from what I have gathered, was put together by Johan Kenkhuis, who was one of Pieter's swimming BFFs (he was one of the members of the silver-winning 4x100 freestyle relay team in Athens) and has been out as a gay man since forever (1 of only 11 out in Athens!) 

What is it? Back in the Gay Pride Parade in Amsterdam in 2009 there was a group of Dutch athletes that came together to raise awareness in the fight for fairness in sports for homosexuals. Among those swimmers and notable names that attended (that are relevant to our interest) are: Johan Kenkhuis, Inge de Bruijn, Pieter and his brother Robert van den Hoogenband. 

IDEK, but it is pretty amazing if you ask me! Not only is Pieter's picture featured several times on the webpage but he also has an interview (all of the aforementioned do, if you want to watch them please look here, here, and here. Unfortunately I cannot download these videos but if anyone figures out how to, please let me know as I want them on my hard drive right now!) 

Ian was totally watching from the shadows, no lie. (Okay it is a lie, but it would be a great idea for a story. Or something.) 

Oh and bonus! Pieter looking amazing!

If I can get this thingie up and going...Collapse )

Ian´s striptease [29 Nov 2009|07:28pm]

[ mood | hyper ]

Hello!

So, here in Brazil we have a reality show with famous people, it´s called A fazenda (The Farm) and one of the contestants, the ex-swimmer Xuxa (Fernando Scherer) was talking about crazy things that happens on Olympics.

One of those things was the time when Ian Thorpe e Grant Hackett got on a table and started singing a striptease song and taking all clothes off. It was Athenas 2004.

Fernando also said that they could have been caught and that everybody was shocked.

Ian, Ian...I wonder where was Pieter that day?

Fic: Let's Say Goodbye to Swimming [18 Sep 2009|06:59pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

I haven’t posted in a loooooong time, but after the list of fics that I needed to finished reached gargantuan proportions I realized I needed to get some of them done! :)

So here’s one. Hope it can get everyone back into a Thoogie mood!

x-posted a few places.

Title: Let’s Say Goodbye to Swimming
Fandom: RPS Swimming
Pairing: Pieter van den Hoogenband/Ian Thorpe
Timeline: December 2008
Rating: NC-17
Prompt: 041. Race
Warnings: Run on sentences ahoy. Not beta'd. Boy smexing. Adultery. Kinda sad.
A/N: I have a lot of pieces started that go back as far as Athens for Thoogie (that I eventually will finish, but I decided to finally finish one that relates to a more recent event: Piet’s retirement party. Finishing it up in celebration of little Sander (born 09.13.09). Not sure an NC-17 slash fic is the most appropriate way to welcome a new baby but I figured it was the best I could do. :-P


This would be the last time.Collapse )

Hello!

Matan4il and myself have set up a new community of Pieter and Ian fic as a sort of an awards for the best of writing: Pieter and Ian Gala.

We have a request: Will someone who is handy with the graphics please give us a hand? We are a bit...crap and would love a bit of an artesian touch.

Please contact matan4il or myself if you would like to participate.

Thanks! :)

One last time. [10 Dec 2008|04:36pm]

Back again with more Thoogie :) Wanted to post this yesterday but then YT was taking too long and then I had to go to bed, lmfao.

This video contains:

¤ Ian being smug, saying that he can't believe that Pieter didn't know that he was coming. Ian himself always knows everything - of course - and pretends to be surprised xD
¤ Pieter asking Ian MULTIPLE times if he'd please, please come to his farewell and Ian lying to his face every single time
¤ Ian's video message to say "Sorry I'm not there!" Only to then appear in front of Pieter.
¤ OMFG PIETER'S EYES GETTING ALL TEARY AND HIM NOT BEING ABLE TO CONTROL HIS EMOTIONS WHEN HE SPOTS IAN ♥

Just like a wedding, trufax!

More Epic Thoogie. [08 Dec 2008|08:46pm]

Because the Thoogie brought so much joy to myself and to others yesterday (oh the love and the pimping all around!), I am back with more!

BECAUSE I CANNOT BRAIN THE FACT THAT THIS IS TRULY THE END. *CLINGS*



NUZZLING. OH GOD. EYES CLOSED.

PictuuuuuuuuuuuuresCollapse )

And tadaaa, another video that I found, ripped and youtubed:


So much love. So much. THOOGIE IS ALL OVER THIS VID. Plus Maarten van der Weijden (bald dude that Pieter went all crazy over after he won the 10km Open Water in Beijing - my favourite tv moment from 2008)!

There is also a video portrait of Pieter's career that I'm in the process of uploading. Which made me cry. There is young!Pieter, Sydney!Pieter, Athens!Pieter, Beijing!Pieter and on top of that they interviewed Alex Popov(♥), the third member of my Swimming Holy Trinity and Pieter's succesor Alain Bernard (who is awesome, btw). Rather miffed they did not interview Ian for this, but at least he's included in the footage.

YOU GUYS. [07 Dec 2008|09:46pm]

Today was Pieter's offcial farewell from Swimming and guess who showed up as a surpise???



HE WAS THERE. IAN WAS THERE FOR PIETER'S OFFICIAL FAREWELL. AS A SURPRISE.

PIETER CONFESSED THAT WHEN HE SAW IAN WALKING TOWARDS HIM HE HAD TO FIGHT THE URGE NOT TO CRY.

Their love is so epic and definitely NOT fiction!

More pictures of Teh Thoogie and Pieter's Farewell at the Swimcup in EindhovenCollapse )

I've also ripped and youtubed a video:


THEY ARE EMBRACING AND THE LOOK ON PIETER'S FACE SAYS IT ALL AND OH IAN, YOU ARE SO GAY IT IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL.

Just had to share this with you guys :)

I had a dream. It inspired me to write this.
It is very sad on me, and not really good. But it's not a choice I could make. It is what it is.

I can't tell you how much I miss them.

Pieter's reaction to the allegations [04 Apr 2007|12:27pm]
unbridled_dream


Dear all,

I feel the kind of sadness roll over me that descends upon you when you sense that a chapter is coming to an end, bitter rather than sweetly. I feel sad most of all because I feel like I have lost them. And you know this feeling persists when you dream about Ian breaking down and crying in your arms. Crying because of everything.

I miss Ian. Immensely. His absence haunts this sport in a way that is almost palpable.
And yet, there is no peace for him. It's unbelievable. I remember him saying that he was physically shaking when he heard the news about the doping allegations; he must have been so shattered. 
I have been watching many clips of Ian on youtube, there are tons of them, many interviews, too, taken before his retirement. If you look close enough and listen close enough, you can all but feel his struggle, feel how much he wants to walk out of all of this. How he wasn't happy and how he wasn't gonna be happy, knowing it well. I wonder if he has ever felt happy in his life.

Pieter's coach was quick to defend Ian, with surprising fervor. I was waiting on a reaction from Pieter himself and when I read it on hollandswimming.com, I was shocked to see that, apparently, Pieter does not quite share that same fervor. This is what the article says in Dutch. It's dated April 1st:

Pieter van den Hoogenband reageert zeer voorzichtig en terughoudend op de dopingverhalen rond Ian Thorpe. Voor de camera´s van NOS-sport zei de Olympisch kampioen dat het hem zeer sterk lijkt dat Thorpe twee jaar na Athene 2004 doping gebruikt zou hebben: "Ik weet het niet, het is te vaag. Ik wil er helemaal niets over zeggen. Ik heb nu al te veel gezegd'. 

This is what I understand Pieter said:

Pieter van den Hoogenband reacts very careful and distant to the doping story surrounding Ian Thorpe. For the cameras of NOS-sport the Olympic champion said that it seems very strong to him that Thorpe would have used doping two years after Athens 2004: 'I don't know, it's too vague. I won't say anything to it. I have now already said too much'.  

Please, those of you who are Dutch or speak it fluently, intervene if what I came up with is entirely wrong. 

I also consulted an online translator, but what struck me was that, in the end, it came up with what sounds an awful lot like this (if you correct its automatic non-English): 
'I know it, it is not too vague. I won't say anything. I have now already said too much'.  

Can this translation be right? If so, is it believable that Pieter would say something like this? And why? 


k.k.

Dammit... [28 Mar 2007|09:33pm]

We know that since Ian isn't swimming the WCs have been rather depressing, now since Pieter claims he's bowing out of the 200 for good, consider it a double dose.

Ah well, it's been a farce since the OTP are doing any lovings on the pool deck.

God, I'm depressed.

I've been feeling rather morose while watching the Swimming World Championship these past few days.

It's just not the same without Ian :'(

That's why I've posted a Thoogie pics spam in my lj, to remember the good old days.

Ladies!


I've founded these pics about Pieter today...

Look at his forehead: http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/73663696.jpg?v=1&c=NewsMaker&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF1935B3684F2B7A07BEB4DD15F3980A59993

But most important--------------------> his face.....

I'm still thinking, that marriage (with Minouche) is not for him.....

Look at those pics!!!!!!!!!! he looks like some good old 40 years old man... Don't you think??

And sooo tired and stressed and old...

I remember the pics with Ian------ happy and calm.....

Soooo here ar the pics:  Piet with Grant now: 

 http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/73663746.jpg?v=1&c=NewsMaker&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF1935B3684F2B7A07BEBF5AF92CC0EF85531

What you think?

And i think is obvious for everybody, how much loves Piet Australia, and how much love the aussies Piet....

Some another details to that fact:  Pieter said that:

"In Athens, Kieren Perkins made me the compliment of saying that if an Australian could not win a race, then in Australia, they will support me," he said.

"If I am going to win that missing title this is the best place and best country to do it." (about Oz)

Hello my dear Hoogenband fans,how's it going?

Well as a St. Patrick Day ocassion, I found several clips of our fav swimmer on Dutch news websites. They're English-Dutch spoken interviews about Pieter and his training process at Australia. I must comment that they're very interesting and my personal comment about him is that,seeing him swimming in person must be impressive. (Well and also seeing HIM must be impressive too :-0 ) Hope you enjoy it too.

http://cgi.omroep.nl/cgi-bin/streams?/nos/nieuws/2007/februari/video/20070227/pvdh.wmv

On this one,he's interviewed on the apartment he's staying at and during training sessions at the pool.
