Son of Ian Thorpe's swimming coach is hit with 25 new child sex abuse charges 

The son of Ian Thorpe’s swimming coach has been hit with 25 additional charges over sexual assault of children at a Sydney pool.

Former MasterChef contestant Paul Frost, the son of Douglas Frost, was alleged to have orally and anally raped four boys aged from 11-16 on multiple occasions and forcing a 10-year-old girl to perform sexual acts.

He appeared in Burwood Local Court on June 24, facing a total of 126 charges against 15 alleged victims. 

In August last year, police received reports that two boys had been assaulted between 1997 and 2001, at the now-closed Doug Frost Swim School in Padstow, southwest Sydney.

Police allege the 44-year-old was the boys’ swimming coach at the time he committed the assaults. 

According to St George Shire Standard, new accusations against Frost include allegedly having sexual intercourse with four boys aged 11 to 16 and one girl who was only 10. 

One of the ex-primary school teacher’s latest charges dates back to 1996, despite court documents alleging his offending began in 1997. 

Frost is accused of molesting a total of 14 boys and one girl between 1996 and 2009. The alleged victims were aged between eight and 16.    

Frost allegedly touched the victims both over and under their swimming costumes during training and allegedly incited them to commit indecent acts upon him on several occasions.

In earlier charges, it was alleged that Frost swam naked with the boys and gave them alcohol before viewing pornography.

Police will allege one of the victims was put through four years of abuse, from the age of 11 to 15, according to court documents seen by St George Shire Standard.

One of the latest charges alleges that Frost forced the female victim to perform masturbation on him. 

Frost was arrested in September last year and was granted strict conditional bail after a week behind bars.

He is only allowed to leave his house with his wife, mother or selected friends and was prohibited from being around children unsupervised except for his own. 

Frost must also report to police each day. 

Following the charges, the 44-year-old lost his job at Malabar Public School in Sydney’s south-east, as well as tutoring at the University of New South Wales.

Frost had previously entered season one of MasterChef after a brief stint working on hospitality.

His father, Doug Frost, coached swimming legend Ian Thorpe between 1995 and 2002.

Frost will return to court on August 12.
