What happens the day after? what happens when you reach that peak and realize that the days of being a professional bike rider are over? Have a look at this photo. Can you spot the ten differences between them? (besides the tan line)
It looks as if this bike rider has mapped out the Tour de France route on his legs, by using his veins. He will surely always be connected to his professional past.
A Cup For You and a Cup For Me
Cupping therapy is an ancient alternative medicine, very popular amongst athletes. It helps to ease pain, muscle inflammation, blood issues, and relaxation. What an amazing body we have. A few glasses stuck on the back, and the pain is gone.
Very often we see swimmers appear for a competition with a decoration of cupping therapy marks all over their bodies, making it much easier for the sports broadcaster to recognize the right swimmer in the right lane. Funny enough, we thought those circles were another invention, to make swimmers swim faster.
Take it Easy
Injuries are the dark side of competitive sports. Some things are beyond our control, and when the body betrays us, there is not much one can do.
We think two elastic ankle braces are plenty for taking it easy for a while (however this athlete is performing tremendously despite the braces).
The Almighty Seven Field
Sacred only for women, the seven fields cover amongst others the hurdles which, for us, seems to be one of the hardest events. The abilities the human body must endure are preserved only for the true superwoman. For the best of them all.
We hope this athlete doesn't stay in this position and decide to continue to other events in the competition, as we feel it might be a bit difficult taking part in the 100m sprint with one leg stuck in the air.
Fred and Ginger
Since they were five years old, these two have been dancing. Starting with classic ballet lessons, moving on to jazz and hip hop, and joining the tap and Irish companies in their teens.
Now that they have reached their twenties, the most beautiful years of their life, they have been accepted to the "Strenchitbaby" corps de ballet. And yes, this is how they have to remain all the time.
