This great image just proves that size doesn’t always count. No matter how tall you are (or how short you are) there is a place on the Olympic podium for everyone.
Could you imagine this volleyball player attempting to do a routine on the bars? Or show his talent on a floor exercise? Even though he is twice her height, she is as grand as he, if not greater.
If you ever wondered what a heavyweight lifter's hands look like, you can stop wondering. Take a look at this sportswoman from the Philipines after winning a gold medal.
Two things amaze us here. First, the number of wounds and blisters she has, and second, how on earth is this girl keeping a smile on her face with all that pain?
Taking Home the Tracks
There are no words to describe the pheomelanin called Usain Bolt. he is definitely one of a kind. He is fast on the track s and it doesn't end there.
Apparently, he has a habit of taking pieces from the track back home with him at the end of every race. Yes, my friend, those are not skin tags. They are track residues.
Home Made Gloves
Alex Gregory is an English athlete, specializing in rowing. He has won two medals in the Olympic games and he also has his own line of handmade gloves.
Now seriously. This is what his hands look like after spending too much time in wet gloves. Apparently, the blisters were not as painful as the wet and damp conditions on the skin.
Determination Under Water
Not everyone is capable of breaking a world record, especially not under the waves. Maarten van der Weijden of the netherland is one of them.
Besides this being a beautiful photograph, there is also a beautiful story behind it. This is what hands look like after swimming for thirty-one hours and seven minutes. A world record has been broken.
