No More Playground Fun: Australian School Bans Cartwheels

If I could still do a cartwheel without hurting myself, I would.

Sigh,… More »

The Daily Hotness: Nastia Liukin And Shawn Johnson

I’m more than a little into watching the Olympics. In fact, I made my friends rush through dinner earlier in the week so I could run home and catch the women’s gymnastics team finals. Last night, the women’s individual all-around competition aired, and I wasn’t able to watch them live. This really ruined my otherwise… More »


Male Swimmers: Abandon Full-Body Suits So We See Your Abs, Please

Male swimmers are not thought of as the most masculine of athletes because they have to shave their legs and wear tight suits to cut down on resistance, which makes them swim faster. But swimmers have hot bodies. Some of the hottest, in fact. They pretty much always have broad shoulders, toned backs, and sick… More »

The Daily Hotness: Michael Phelps & Ryan Lochte

You know the other thing I love about swimmers? Their little swimming briefs. They’ve really modernized the Speedo, haven’t they? Also, there is nothing sexier on a man’s body — especially if he is an Olympic swimmer like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte — than that muscular V on their lower torso. There is a… More »


The Daily Hotness: Ryan Lochte

My favorite part of the summer Olympics, well besides gymnastics and diving, is swimming.

Everyone goes on and on about… More »
