Question Is Alexander Popov retired?

Who knows please?

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

in 50m he came 5th
his speed isn't quite what it was since that unfortunate incident as few years ago and he's getting on a bit too.

He certainly didn;t win singles gold at the last European championships (don't even know if he won a medal, well he didn;t win one on 50 metres but maybe at the 100?).

Oh well, he's a great champ!

He's also my favorite, what a great champion! Coming back from that stabbing incident and winning gold, wow! I'll surely miss him!
What will he do after he retires, I guess he can coach his son Vladimir to be a swimming champion like him, would love to see that! His wife is also a swimmer no?

Sooooo, let's all get drunk and go to

yes his wife was a former swimmer too ,but i think Popov is handsome enough to be a film star, more handsome and much taller than tom cruise
