Out of This World

We are in the height of Olympic season, and the entire world seems to be glued to their TV. When the best athletes come together around the world, you can bet some incredible things start to happen. Strength is put to the test, hopes and dreams are fulfilled (and broken), records are shattered; we all witness some seemingly unbelievable feats.

However, when you see all these athletes together, you can sometimes forget how prodigious these superstars really are. Like I always say, the Olympics should put a regular human in all the races and tournaments just as a reference. These pictures, however, will definitely remind you that the Olympians this year are definitely not normal.

WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS??? This picture is of German cyclist Robert Forstemann and fellow German teammate Andre Greipel having a “Quad Off.” Robert captioned the photo, “You thought Greipel has a big set of legs. There was a quad off in the German camp today. Greipel lost.” They give a new definition to the phrase “Thunder Thighs.”

What The Fork!
