Australian Diver Battles Addiction, Breaking Bad

Matthew Mitcham couldn’t even finish three episodes of Breaking Bad before turning it off because of triggering issues. You see, he was addicted to methamphetamine at the age of just 18, two years before his biggest triumph, Gold on the ten meter platform dive at Beijing in 2008.

Now Mitcham is back again for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. You can watch him at the embed below, and you can read more on his inspiring and harrowing story at Yahoo.
