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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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!

So he’s pretty much the biggest thing right now. He’s sexy, athletic, uniquely fashionable and oh-so-adorable.  Like actually just so cute.  And now he’s an Olympic gold-medalist.  No big deal.  Who is he?  I bet you’ve already guessed, we’re talking about none other than Ryan Lochte.

And now, like another Ryan we all know and… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

“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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

“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,… READ MORE »

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. So I’m sitting here, knowing who won what and I want to write about it because tomorrow frickin’ READ MORE »

We’re obsessed with the Olympics, and if you hadn’t guessed, we’ve been spending all of our free time watching the swimmers, gymnasts and volleyball players kick ass in the water, on the uneven bars, and in the sand.

All this Olympic fever has made us realize that some of our favorite athletes look… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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.” READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

Yesterday afternoon, my friend texted me the following: “Two word: Nathan. Adrian.” Huh? I figured it had to be swimming related, as her husband used to be a competitive swimmer and, like, the Olympics are very important around their house. Sure enough, I did a quick Google and it turned out that Nathan Adrian is A) HOT… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

Ladies love Ryan Lochte. And Ryan Lochte loves what on a woman? The (possibly?) most-watched Olympian recently sat down with Women’s Health for a quick interview, where he revealed what he thinks — and probably only he thinks — is the sexiest thing on a woman.

Seriously, it’s really weird, dude.
