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…
He may not have time for a relationship, but he’s got time to take a nap … with his nephew. Look at this picture whenever your hormones need jumpstarting. [WOW]
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 love (talking to you Mr. Gosling), he even has his own “Hey Girl” meme! Really, it was only a matter of time.
Sit back, relax and just pretend he’s winking at you. Hey girl, we can dream … can’t we? See 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 hair doesn’t seem to be impeding his ability to compete at the top of his game. Another part of his body that Ivan hasn’t touched? That unibrow, which garners him a much coveted spot in our Unibrow Hall of Fame. Congrats, Ivan! [Buzzfeed]
