Race Imboden is a 19-year-old DJ from Park Slope and a member of the U.S. Olympic fencing team who was eliminated from competition by Italian fencer Andrea Baldini. As much as we’ll miss his athletic skills and dramatic lunges, we must admit we’re going to miss his partially shaved, self-described “classical mad man haircut” even more. Here’s to 2016!

As you may have heard, eight Olympic badminton players were recently disqualified from the women’s doubles competition for “not using one’s best efforts to win.” Apparently the real issue is that they were throwing matches to manipulate the tournament match-ups, but when I first read the headlines, I have to admit I was totally taken with the idea of being able to charge someone with the formal offense of “not trying.” I asked the rest of The Frisky staff who else we’d like to put on blast for “not using their best efforts.” Check out our list of underachievers after the jump, and feel free to add your own in the comments!

Style Inspiration: Team USA Women’s Gymnastics

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: we looooove our women’s gymnastics team! Gabby, McKayla, Jordyn, Kyla, and Aly [So many Ys! -- Editor] put on an amazing show and took home a stack of well-deserved gold medals for their efforts (I totally cried when Aly landed the final combination in her floor routine–did you?). These young women have us doing somersaults in our living rooms, and that’s not all: suddenly we want a sparkly red wardrobe to match their gorgeous leotards. You too? Click through for shopping details — and don’t forget to follow @thefrisky for live updates from the London Olympics!  Keep reading »

If you don’t like Nutella (is that even possible?), this picture is probably grossing you out on so many levels. But if you love Nutella (as you should, because it’s fucking delicious), you probably reacted to this picture the same way I did: “Daaaaaammn! Why didn’t I think of that?” [That's Nerdalicious]

“I sat next to Anna Wintour at a Band of Outsiders show, and she asked me, ‘When do you go to school?’ I just felt like, When do your models go to school? I had a really weird moment of feeling like I missed my school and I missed my friends, and there wasn’t any real enthusiasm coming from the people who were there for what was going on around us, even though it should have been this exciting, creative thing. I felt funny about that experience. In a way, fashion had been this magical thing that I was obsessed with. I was just such a fan. But then I got a little too close to it, and that was kind of saddening.”

Tavi Gevinson, fashion blogging phenom, editor of Rookie, and this month’s Bust cover girl (woohoo!) describes the moment she became disillusioned with the glitz and glamor of the fashion world. I think a lot of people who work in the fashion industry have had a moment like this, although it usually happens a bit later in your career, and isn’t necessarily spurred on by an interaction with Anna Wintour. So, what’s next for Tavi? She’s got her eye on a career in film. “After high school, I think I want to take a year off and live in L.A.,” she says, “because I just really like it there and everything is pretty.” Valid point.

We Want To Go To There: Berlin’s Festival Of Colors

Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors, originated in India and is now celebrated around the world with revelers throwing colored powders into the air. On Sunday, 3000 people gathered on the streets of Berlin and within minutes, they’d become a giant human rainbow. Pretty cool, huh? [Buzzfeed]

Artist Max Steiner creates these teeny tiny cinder blocks the old fashioned way: by pouring the cement and letting it set for one month. The end result? A 3/4 inch cement pendant that’s incredibly strong and surprisingly delicate, strung onto a long silver chain. I’d love to layer this industrial necklace with a few strands of pearls and other feminine accessories. Perfect contrast piece. [$64, Shana Logic]

The Soup Nazi Food Truck Has Free Soup For You!

The Soup Nazi’s motto used to be, “No soup for you!,” but apparently he’s softened up a bit in his old age (well, either that or Elaine’s recipe-snatching really did ruin him), because Larry Thomas, the actor who portrayed the legendarily cranky soup chef, is currently touring the U.S. in a “Seinfeld” food truck distributing free soup. And that’s not all: hungry “Seinfeld” fans in select cities can enjoy a menu of other iconic treats such as Junior Mints, muffin tops, black and white cookies, Twix, and Snapple–all free of charge. Scheduled stops include Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and Baltimore. What?! No west coast cities? Serenity now! [Laughing Squid]

That’s A Lot Of Look: Spain’s Olympic Uniform

Apparently Spain didn’t have the money to provide new uniforms for its Olympians this year because the country is on the brink of bankruptcy (hey, who hasn’t been there lately, amiright?), so it accepted some complimentary uniforms from a Russian designer. The freebie duds are, well, a lot of look, and the Spanish Olympic team isn’t exactly pleased. Field hockey player Alex Fabrega tweeted this picture of himself sporting the red and yellow ensemble along with the description, “There aren’t enough adjectives.” [NPR]
