Are you in college and studying advertising? Take note at what condom maker Durex has done here. That, youngsters, is how you create an advertising masterpiece at the Olympics. That billboard has done 1,600 RTs since 4 a.m. EST. In other Olympic news, one of the trains that is supposed to take visitors to the Olympic park was late today thanks to the driver calling in sick. Seriously. And finally, is this Australian swimmer fat? Let's get rolling!
There has been quite the controversy surrounding Team USA and their uniforms. Ralph Lauren and his team designed these threads and...how do we put it? They are pretty much the douchiest outfits we've ever seen. Every American athlete will have to rock these uniforms, berets and all, during Friday's opening ceremonies. It's great seeing photos popping up of athletes trying on the outfits, best one yet has been Anthony Davis. Unibrow is rocking the beret with pride! JUMP!
Team USA has been handling their business in tune-up games leading up to the Olympics. With the exception, of the Argentina game, each victory has been a cakewalk. However the team looks like it is trying to catch as much rest as possible, especially on the plane. Kevin Love snapped an epic Instagram pic of six of his teammates and head coach Mike Krzyzewski passed out en route to London. Impressive ability to catch all seven guys out cold. JUMP!
Hmm, not sure if I'd want to switch over to Charlie Rose at 10 or watch the final hour of the XXX Summer Olympics on Versus (really the NBC Sports Network)? Oh, wait, there's an arrow to the right on the XXX Summer Olympics. Great, looks like I can sneak in an hour of Charlie interviewing Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho & get back for the clean & jerk. Should be an awesome night of TV. Let's get rolling!
Poor Voula Papachristou. She just couldn't wait to be racist until after or during the Olympics. Instead, the Greek triple jumper got on her Twitter account, and in perfect English, wondered what Africans will eat in Greece. That's it, her Olympic dreams were over. The country told her she won't be going to London. Here's the tweet. JUMP!
With the Olympics officially kicking off today in London (women's soccer!), traffic and security seem to be really picking up. For whatever reason, the entire city of London seems surprised by this. The sun came up and these morons are wowed by the traffic that the Olympics have brought. Of course the locals went straight to Twitter to bitch about traffic, the deficit, corporate moguls and more. Stop whining and enjoy the games! JUMP!
As you know, the London Olympics get started this week with soccer matches and the opening ceremony on Friday. To celebrate this great sporting event and all that it stands for, Busted Coverage will spend the next two weeks bringing you 'How Not To Be A 2012 Olympian.' It's our attempt to honor those people who'll never have a gold medal draped around their necks. It's our small little tribute to those failures who give it their all. JUMP!
Ever since professionals were allowed to play in the Olympics in 1992, the United States has been a force to be reckoned with. Well, other than the debacle in 2004. Did we really expect a team coached by Larry Brown and led by Allen Iverson to handle the Olympics well? That year aside, the U.S. has done nothing but dominate, winning gold in 1992, 1996, 2000 & 2008. Hell yes the U.S. is going to London to drill punks from Spain & Tunisia JUMP!
Ryan Lochte is an Olympic swimmer who wore this shirt that says "I HEART BREAST" supporting breast cancer awareness. Lochte is a former Florida Gator who still lives in Gainesville to train. I can attest to Lochte's love of the ladies since I've partied with him in Gainesville. The guy carried around a pitcher of Jager Bombs and was surrounded by hot chicks the entire time. JUMP!
One of our favorite sports at the Olympics? Weightlifting, specifically women's weightlifting. Why? Because you never know when one of these chicks will puke, blow out a knee or blind a judge via a zit popping from all the pressure. Not that we'd say it to their faces. We've already showed you what Team USA's Hope Solo has to offer, now we bring you weightlifting's lovely ladies. Smooches, girls. JUMP!
A few days ago, Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice shocked the internet world with her Twitpic of her rocking a revealing bathing suit. Honestly, we aren't really sure why this was such a big deal. It's not like she was doing her best T.O. impersonation, it was just a single photo in a bathing suit. People, including men, were up in arms and upset that Rice would do such a thing. The backlash makes no sense, right? Right. JUMP!
Between Shawn Johnson and Allison Stokke, the U.S. is missing out on having some of our hottest athletes on the Olympic stage. Stokke didn't qualify, but Shawn Johnson simply can't compete after a skiing accident forced her into early retirement. As much as we'll miss seeing her compete, if she continues to do photo shoots like this one we'll be A-OK. She is killing it in this Nike shoot, showing that even with her knee not being 100% she can still bring the heat. JUMP!
So close. So damn close to being the story of the 2012 London Olympics & a HUGE pageviews generator for Busted Coverage. We told you guys last week that Atlanta Falcons cheerleader and pole vaulter Kat Majester would be competing at the U.S. Olympic Track & Field trials. Here we figured Kat wouldn't clear the starting height and would flame out. Um, she nearly made the Olympics. JUMP!
Big news from yesterday's U.S. Track & Field pole vaulting trials? Allison Stokke failed to make the London Olympics because she couldn't clear the starting height. Of course it's devastating news to the Internet which had interest in pole vaulting over the last five years thanks to Stokke's seemingly perfectly tanned legs and the pageviews those legs generated. JUMP!
Fresh off of a cross-country road trip, Christal Engle arrived in Manhattan Thursday afternoon to promote this summers Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series. Jose Cuervo will be taking her and other members of the tour to seven different stops across the country, showcasing all that beach volleyball has to offer. We got a chance to sit down with Christal and talk to her about the sport, Jose Cuervo, partying and more. JUMP for the interview and photos of this sexy beach volleyball babe.
The U.S. Olympic Track & Field Olympic Trials begin Thursday in Eugene, Oregon. It just happens that Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Kat Majester is already in town getting for her chance to become one of the biggest names in U.S. pole vaulting history. Has an NFL cheerleader ever made the Olympics? No. How can't you root for Majester when she has a photo collection like this? We're on the bandwagon. JUMP!
Kudos to Usain Bolt for thinking about his career, his country and the Olympics Games. The Jamaican sprinting stud has thrown his girlfriend, Lubica Slovak, back to the wolves in favor of training and future poon options. Like this guy has time for some Slovakian broad when every Page 3 model in the U.K. will be flopping her rack in this guy's face come August. The last thing he needs is some broad always needing sex when he's trying to stay fresh for the 100. JUMP!
Yep, still on the Holley Mangold bandwagon with 120 days until the start of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Don't think for a second that Matt Lauer won't be chatting her up at least 2-3 times over the two weeks. Don't think she won't be part of a skit where Holley is required to smack Al Roker upside the head with fish & chips. Don't think she won't be swan diving into piles of spotted dick on the Today show. JUMP!
Jeff Fabry can shoot an arrow straighter than you, which wouldn't really be notable except for the fact he only has one arm. Fabry is a member of the U.S. archery team and will be going for gold at the London Olympics. He's also seemingly an all-around swell guy. We're pretty sure this makes him better than all of us. Take a break from watching basketball and eating Cheetos and check it out here.
