olympics gold

say what you will about Andy Murray, call him dull or boring or grumpy or whatever, but I can’t think of a single other sportsman whose first instinct is to refute sexism from reporters who like to disregard female participation in their sport, like last year when a reporter said he was the first tennis player to retain an olympic gold, and instantly Andy responded with “Venus and Serena have like 4 each”, then today after his defeat to Sam Querrey, a reporter mentioned Sam being the first American player to get to a grand slam semi final since 2009, and Andy instantly interjected with “Male player”. 

Say what you want about Andy, but he’s full of respect for his female counterparts, which is tragically rare in the sports world

In which Nobu fanboys a tiny bit, Yuzuru cannot tie his tie and Taka-chan comes to the rescue.

Those gold backs… You got to love these randoris between Olympic champions, Kelmendi (KOS) and Mudranov (RUS) !

I love Kelmendi! She is just a beast! If you are from Kosovo, you should be damn proud of this girl! 

Being short can suck, especially as a guy. People are always saying tall guys are hot, that they’re somehow more desirable, and idealized male bodies are always tall. But being short is actually a huge advantage in a lot of sports – did you know that? Short guys make fantastic gymnasts, divers, wrestlers, weightlifters, long-distance runners, skiers/snowboarders, martial artists, skaters, rock climbers, soccer players, lacrosse players, cyclists, and jockeys. There are also certain sports that have positions favorable to shorter athletes, like rugby! Being short will make you a great hooker in rugby. You’d also have an advantage with bowling, skateboarding, BMX, and even dancing. All of these sports are excellent for short guys because your center of gravity is lower and you’re lighter. You’d be surprised how many sports require balance and flexibility rather than size. And in some other team sports, like basketball and football, short guys could play circles around taller guys, especially if they’re fast, making them a great addition to a team. There are world-class male athletes shorter than 5'6" out there making Olympic gold. So, sure, it sucks to be the short friend – heck, to not be able to reach some of your high kitchen shelves, but you’d make a great pole-vaulter. Short guys are badasses and I’m sick of the bullshit we get from people for not meeting idealized standards.

Venus Williams (b. 1980) is regarded as one of the best tennis players in history. She was World No. 1 for a total of 11 weeks throughout her career, and was the first African American to reach that spot in the Open Era.

She is one of only seven women who have ever reached No. 1 in both singles and doubles. She has won seven Grand Slam singles titles, and fourteen Grand Slam doubles. She has won four Olympic gold medals, and holds the record for most Olympic medals by a tennis player, male or female.

roadhog week day 2: fave skin

this isn’t technically a skin but i wish it was….. the world just wasn’t ready for olympic gold medalist roadhog running around on the objective in just a speedo i guess :^/

anonymous asked:

Imagine: small time YouTuber doing a video about learning how to ice skate. Keeps falling, asks the only person on the rink who looks like he knows what he's doing. Post a video afterwards and wonders why it blows up. Finding out it was olympic gold medalist Yuuri Katsuki. Cue flashbacks of funny things that were said: "Wow you're really good! You could be an olympian!"-"i could be" etc.

omg yes! And can you imagine Viktor coming to pick Yuuri up and the youtuber being like ‘oh wow that’s your husband? Is he as good a skater as you’ and Yuuri justs looks right into the camera and goes ‘no’ and winks
