Women’s boxing is having its first time ever at the 2012 Olympics and I have half a mind to say “this is what feminism looks like.” Right here we have Naomi-Lee Fischer-Rasmussen of Australia, left, socking Anna Laurell of Sweden right in the kisser! (I chose this image because it’s an action shot, not because it was the first lady-bout … it wasn’t.) Fight on, ladies. You’re all making history. [Los Angeles Times] [Image: Getty]
One of the more … dramatic Summer Olympic events, in my opinion, is synchronized swimming. There’s something so weird and flamboyant about it. Just look at the ferocious enthusiasm on the faces of Austrian duo Nadine Brandl and Livia Lang, who competed in the Women’s Duets Synchronised Swimming Free Routine Preliminary today. Also, what kind of waterproof makeup are they using? That shit is staying put. Click through to see more fabulously over the top synchronized swimmers doing their thing…
I’ve spent the last few days in London, soaking up all the city and all the 2012 Summer Olympics has to offer. From a boat tour of London on the Thames, to amazing seats at the gymnastics competition, this has been the trip of a lifetime!

Earlier this week, the folks at NOC composed a Ryan Lochte-themed parody of that inescapable Carly Rae Jepsen song called “Call Me Lochte.” Well, now the gold medal winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team has scored their own parody tribute, this time to One Direction’s “That’s What Makes You Beautiful” called “That’s What Makes You Flexible.” It’s cute, but when I met the Fab Five at Olympic Trials, they all expressed a love for either Drake or Justin Bieber.
