Iron man. Little bit more than a triathlon.

For me HIV+ MAN COMPLETES IRONMAN, is a tremendous story in its own right,,irrespective of the fame of the participant.


Just before the rugby World Cup starts too. Even Gatland was obliged to say something about him, I assume from the Welsh training camp in Japan.
I suppose the one thing you won’t hear from Alfie is - “I’d rather not talk about it. Please respect mine and my family’s privacy at this very difficult time...... “

I agree with his.

It’s not as if Thomas is the first Gay man to have this condition, he just seems to want as much publicity as he can possibly get.

Last post so true.

Thomas actually has the opposite effect to that which he is looking for.

In a nutshell 👍and he's gona make a fair wedge out of this publicity just before the Rugby World Cup... rightly or wrongly this brings attention to the fact that this awful illness is manageable... so take the positives

I don’t like him because he is a complete and utter moron. He is not a hero. Being Gay and HIV positive doesn’t make you a hero. He is a head slapping Tw*t who needs to be out of the media spotlight not fully immersed in it. He is as thick as two short planks and slaps his head like a complete cretin. The only time I ever looked up to the man is when he took over the Lions captaincy in New Zealand and he played some really good rugby. The man is an imbecile.

Brilliant achievement mind. I bet not many on here can say they've done as much as him, and I wonder if that's where the bitterness comes from (it can't be on account of him being a 'poofter' like, as I'm sure people on here wouldn't be so shallow. ).

I think the disengagement with Gareth Thomas started when he got Ruddock the sack from his Wales job and the team went from winning the Grand Slam to wooden spoonists the very next year. Then the meltdown when Eddie Butler had him bang to rights and his so called “stroke” did even less to endear him to the Welsh rugby public, the headslapping at the liberty was pathetic - what the f*ck enmity have Ospreys and Cardiff City between them? He’s qualified himself as a proper tw+t - way before he became a professional homosexual.

From then on the pictures of him in the bath with his boyfriend ( because let’s face it that’s what all couples do gay or straight), the constant tv series to keep him in the public eye despite his complete unsuitability due to being as skilled a personality as Mick Fleetwood on the Brit awards just made things even worse. Now he’s got HIV . Gareth to the BBC - “Let’s make a programme to make the public aware eh? “ . Most people have been aware of HIV since the 80’s though Gar.
Idiot.

It’s a superb achievement.

I’d like to think people on here don’t have an issue with him because of his sexuality or the football team he supports. It’s the fact that he has to be the centre of attention that winds me up. Timing this announcement the day before his iron man and a week before the RWC.

Had he run the iron man, then announced this on a Tuesday a couple of weeks later, it wouldn’t have come across as it did, but he wouldn’t have had as many people fawning over him in Tenby either.

I’m not. I’m referring to what he claims happened before with the threats to ‘out’ him. I don’t know him though, so no idea if that’s the truth of it.


That’s typical of you. You actually don’t know what you are talking about.

You would be quite wrong 247.

You're making assumptions as to what people believe at heart and what they post on social media.

I actually said ‘I would hope’ people don’t judge him on the facts he’s gay or from Cardiff. I honestly think most are above that, not all obviously.

My own personal opinion is it’s almost impossible not to admire what he has done in a sporting capacity. I’d include completing an iron man in that. Captaining Wales and (I think) the Lions is nothing short of phenomenal.

In his position, it took a huge character to publicly come out, even though it had been an open secret for a couple of years.

I’m just not a fan of the way he has conducted himself in relation to his sexuality (and now illness) since that point. There are plenty of homosexual celebrities that don’t need to shout about it.

Yes, Michael Barrymore for one. Oh sorry, bad example......
On a more serious note someone like Colin Jackson is a tremendous bloke who is very down to earth and seemingly happy in his own skin. Alfie probably not so.

Colin Jackson is a great example.

Came out, vast majority supported him, though I’m sure he had to deal with a few idiots. Then he just quietly got on with his life.

I like the way Stephen Fry is with the issue. You rarely ever hear him mention it, then it becomes forgettable. That's how it should be. Mention it every now and then if you have to, but then get on with it.

Maybe I'm just generalising, but I find that some people in minority groups feel like because they're different, they need everyone to know, and they make an effort to make their difference (whether it's being a different race, sexuality etc) the centre of their life. Why does this happen?

I ask, because even though I don't want to, I often make the same mistake, and it's frustrating. Is it something built into my personality that I can't change? Maybe someone like Gareth Thomas is just destined to always be an attention-seeker, and he can't change it.

My name is Matt
