However, his chest tattoo is causing a special stir.

Although the Olympic champion started for Australia, he also immortalized Germany, at least on his heavily tattooed torso.

That raises questions!

On the chest are four words: “Only the strong survive”.

Why in German?

A few weeks ago, the swimming expert revealed what the tattoo was in an interview with the “German Swimming Association” (DSV).

Weird justice!

He explained: “I learned German at school and I also studied German after school. So tattooing in German was special for me because it was my favorite subject at school and I was very interested in it,” he said.

But it also fits his declaration of love for Berlin.

Chalmers said: “I love Germany and I love Berlin.” That’s why he attended a Hertha game at the Olympic Stadium during a trip to Germany last year and made the capital unsafe.

“Now I have some close friends in Berlin who offered to take me to a game, so I jumped at the chance and got on the next flight so I could be there. I wanted to learn more about the history of Berlin, so I took a big history tour with a private guide, and I could Learned as much as possible.

Coincidentally, Chalmers had another reason to celebrate on Thursday: winning the world championship in the 4 x 50 meter freestyle!

Along with fellow swimmers Isaac Cooper, Matthew Temple and Flynn Sareb Southam, he finished in 1:23.44 ahead of Italy and Holland.

After a win at the last tournament of the year, he may go back to Germany for a tour.
