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!

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.
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!

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.

Let’s use this wonderful achievement as an excuse to ogle this 6’6, half-Chinese hunk of man, mmkay? Keep reading »
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?

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.
When posed with the open-ended question: “Women look hottest in _____”, Lochte answered with … Read more …
