Christine Merrill, the attractive Sri Lankan/American athlete, who lost.
This blog is getting a lot of traffic lately from Reddit’s Oh-lympics page (adult, ish). This is a showcase of many attractive Olympic athletes, female, including Sri Lanka’s own Christine Merrill, wherein it links to my post on the subject. Which is all good. Olympics are about the physical, in all its forms. I can’t find a similar thread on men though.
If you’re into the Oh-lympics, here’s some further reading:
- What if every Olympic sport was photographed like beach volleyball?: Beach volleyball is played in swimsuits, essentially (how un-Sinhala Buddhist, pshaw) with a lot of butt shots. This interesting article from Metro explores what other sports would look like if cropped to the crotch/butt area. Somewhat similar to the thought experiment on what the Avengers would look like if they were all shot as women.
- The ESPN Body Issue: The ESPN body issue has an amazing set of nude photographs (no nipples or fur) of athletes. The original Olympics must have been pretty close to naked (I can’t imagine the running tho, painful) and there is something majestic about the human form they’ve captured here. NSFW, but purely artistic, insomuch as such a distinction needs to exist. Naked people. OMG.
- Usain Bolt And The Swedish Handball Team: I dunno what to say about this. It’s just a few photos really, but you can imagine.
- The oh, oh, Ohhh-lympics!: I think the Daily Mail (of course) may have started this whole thing with this article, full of salacious detail (150,000 condoms distributed to athletes, or 15 each) and photos. They feature some men as you go further, uh, down.
So there you go. There’s like 2,000 extra people a day coming here for Oh-lympics, so give the people what they want.
