Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is known as being a pretty chill dude, but that was especially evident when he talked about being held up at gunpoint in Rio.
Olympic all-around gold medalist Gabby Douglas recently became a three-time gold medalist by being a member of the champion U.S. women’s team in Rio.
Andy Murray won his second Olympic gold medal for the UK on Sunday night in Rio.
If the Rio Olympics have proven anything, it’s that the only swimmers capable of challenging Michael Phelps are his own proteges.
Phelps actually came in second (gasp!) in a three-way tie in the men’s 100-meter butterfly Friday, getting bested by Singapore’s 21-year-old Joseph Schooling.
Jamaican Usain Bolt made history when he won the 100-meter dash in the Sunday night final in Rio, claiming Olympic gold in the event for an unprecedented third consecutive time.
But he competed in the men’s 100-meter semifinal just 30 minutes before that, breezing past the competition with absolute ease.
As you've probably heard, the Olympic Village is a hotbed of hookups and romance (Ok, mostly hookups) among athletes during the games. But even world-class athletes turn to online dating apps like Tinder and Bumble to play the field.
We already know that Michael Phelps is a machine and you’ve probably seen him race dozens of times, but it’s a pretty safe bet that you’ve never seen him race with Nintendo sounds in the background.
Well, now you can, thanks to Retro SFX who set Super Mario Bros. music to Phelps journey from pre-race game face to the rising flag at the end after he takes his gold.
Amini Fonua, an Olympic swimmer from Tonga and one of the many openly gay athletes competing at the games, was rightfully incensed when straight Daily Beast writer, Nico Hines, outed athletes with his attempts at “humor” in a Grindr-In-Rio story.
He said he was moved to tears by the article because it may have compromised the identities of gay athletes at Rio who had not yet come out.
Most people already know that Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympic athlete to ever walk (or swim) on the planet. But what you might not know is that he is basically a completely different aquatic species probably descended from Poseidon or some other type of water God.
You can’t dispute the facts.
