Adelaide:

Three-time Olympian and Commonwealth Games champion swimmer Phil Rogers of Australia has had many of his medals stolen from his home during a daylight break-in.

The 40-year-old Rogers, a former breaststroker, said Wednesday that thieves made off with an Olympic medley relay bronze medal from Atlanta in 1996, two Commonwealth Games gold medals, two world championship gold medals, two Pan Pacific golds and Rogers' Order of Australia medal.

He said the medals had no monetary value but "they're of tremendous value to me because it's 20 years of hard work."

Police in the city of Adelaide cautioned secondhand dealers to look out for anyone trying to sell the medals, half of which are engraved with Rogers' name.
