PROFILE: Derek Porter
For the love of Porter

Relationship with Aussie model makes headlines

By Toronto Sun Staff and CP
Tara Moss
  Sculler Derek Porter and his new love interest, model/author Tara Moss, were big news in yesterday's Sydney Morning Herald. The broadsheet paper devoted a quarter page to their intriguing relationship.

 The gorgeous Moss has been a semi-regular at rowing events in Penrith, where Porter will compete for the gold in the men's single scull tonight.

 Moss' agent said the rights of the Porter-Moss story now belong to an Australian women's magazine.

 "I think they met in Canada," a source with the Canadian team said. "She has been around him and the team for some time. I know she is here whenever he competes."

 Porter's teammates have been told to keep the relationship quiet from the Australian press.
