Team Unibrow: Meet Olympic Diver Ivan Garcia

There's something different about Olympic diver -- representing Team Mexico -- Ivan Garcia: he has not waxed his body hair, something most competitive athletes (in diving, swimming and gymnastics in particular) do because hair causes drag and can slow down your time. He's already won a silver medal at the London Olympics, so his body…

Momma Lochte Didn’t Mean “One-Night Stands” In That Way

"How innocent is that? All I wanted to say is that he's so sensitive about not wanting to hurt a girl dating, so he just goes and dates and takes out a girl for maybe one or two dates and doesn't have a relationship because he doesn't have (time) and it's not fair to the…

10 Tips for Becoming Ryan Lochte’s Girlfriend

Olympic athletes automatically become role models or a special, super-talented type of celebrity in the eyes of us commoners.  They have SO much dedication, so much perseverance, so much spirit.  They give their lives away to the sport of their choice and while doing so, give UP so much as well.  It’s easy to see…

Ryan Lochte’s Mom Says He’s Only Got Time To Go On One-Night Stands

“He goes out on one-night stands. He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go.” -- I love the way that Ryan Lochte's mom Ike manages to make one-night stands sound like formal events. Like Ryan calls random girls up and, in his vaguely brain dead way, asks, "Wanna…

Find Out Who Won The Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Medals!

Hey! The women's gymnastics all-around competition was today, but it's not airing on TV until tonight and you could have only watched it live online if you have a workplace/computer setup/cable provider that allows for such things.

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.

Olympic Badminton Players And 12 Other People We’d Like To Charge With “Not Trying”

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."

8 Gratuitously Hot Photos Of Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer Nathan Adrian

Yesterday afternoon, my friend texted me the following: "Two word: Nathan. Adrian." Huh?

Ryan Lochte Thinks Women Look Hottest In …WHAT!?

Ladies love Ryan Lochte. And Ryan Lochte loves what on a woman?

15 Climactic Olympic O-Faces

Sports photographers are in heaven during the Olympics, having the opportunity to capture athletes at the peak of their careers -- and, if we didn't know better, the peak of orgasm.

Ryan Lochte Is A Great Looking Man Of Very, Very Few Words

I've always found the phrase "Shut up and look pretty" awfully offensive, but then I started listening to swim god Ryan Lochte speak in interviews and had a change of heart. Ryan Lochte is Jeff Spicoli and should definitely just shut up and swim. [Buzzfeed]…
