Ian Thorpe and Leisel Jones will commentate the World Swimming Championships for Seven later this month.
To be held in Budapest, Hungary, the World Swimming Championships will air live and exclusive on 7TWO from July 23.
Thorpe is Australia’s greatest Olympian, having won the most gold medals of any Aussie athlete. At age 15, he became the youngest male world champion when he won gold in the 400-metre freestyle at the World Championships – an event he went on to win 10 more gold medals at, the third highest of any swimmer.
Leisel Jones is regarded as one of Australia’s greatest breaststrokers. Jones boasts a successful swimming career as the first Australian swimmer to compete at four Summer Olympic games where she has won a total of nine medals.
