With beach volleyball set to kick off in London this Saturday, we thought we'd take the opportunity to introduce you to the five sexiest babes participating. We aren't gonna rehash on Misty May-Treanor or Kerri Walsh. These girls are pretty under the radar here in the States, and some might come out as the darlings of London 2012. Remember these girls participate in skimpy bikinis and jump and dive all over the place. Wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. JUMP!
Missy Franklin was born in California. Both of her parents are Canadian and the new American swimming hero holds dual citizenship with America's hat. So, you know, that means Canada's sports network, TSN (their version of ESPN), wants to get in on Missy's gold in the 100m backstroke. This headline ran last night on TSN.com but has since been pulled. JUMP!
Tired of waiting for Bob Costas to wax poetic about the Olympics before getting to the replays you really care about? Having trouble finding videos of 2012 Olympic Games that really matter? So are we. That’s why we’re opening the ‘Busted Coverage Olympic Videos You Actually Care About’ world headquarters. It’ll only be open for the next two weeks. *Yes, we know Michelle Jenneke isn't at the Olympics. It's a crime.
Let's just say it was a blast watching Twitter last night when different time zones got to watch Marketa Slukova & her Czech Republic partner face Misty May & Kerri Walsh in beach volleyball. Looks like we've found a 6'5" chick that could take the "Hottest 2012 Olympian" title thanks to the armbra and bikini photos. On today's schedule: more Michael Phelps & men's basketball vs. Tunisia (full TV schedule, here). Let's get rolling!
Melissa Seidemann is a 6-foot, 229 pound water polo player for the U.S. team. There's a good chance today won't be the last time you see this beast having her ass slapped by a coach after a U.S. victory. Look, we're not experts on women's water polo, but we'd assume this chick is a huge weapon in this sport where being able to float is a good thing. Was Melissa ever going to be a champion in the 100m freestyle? JUMP!
Want to know what Chinese steroids will do to your face? They'll cause giant moles to grow beards. Look at this Zhang Jie character during today's London Olympics 62kg weightlifting. That's not an illusion. It's a giant hairy mole that could use a trim. Why he's not using clippers on that beast is a Chinese mystery. Maybe it's his lucky hairy mole. We're just as perplexed as the rest of London on this one. JUMP!
What do we know about this video of triple jumper Snežana Rodić? Not much. It's not from the 2012 Olympics, but that hasn't stopped the Internet from appreciating Snezana's ass in a humping motion. Between the yoga pants and the stretching routine, it's hard to believe any set of eyes wasn't locked on Rodić during her routine. We pulled ten sexy screen shots along with 22 photos showing off her insane body.

So are we. That’s why we’re opening the ‘Busted Coverage Olympic Videos You Actually Care About’ world headquarters. It’ll only be open for the next two weeks. We give you an Austrian cyclist, Bernhard Eisel.
Misty May-Treanor & Kerri Walsh Jennings hit the sand tonight at 11 p.m. (London time) to face the team of Kristyna Kolocova and Marketa Slukova from the Czech Republic. You know what that means - primetime coverage on NBC (8 p.m. EST). Expecting a huge national audience for this match, we did some investigating on this Slukova & Kolocova team. Gentlemen, the above (left) forearm bra is Slukova. Take notice. JUMP!

Here's a coach getting f-ed up by a folding chair at the Diving Platform 10m finals. JUMP!
This is by far the gayest photo to ever be published on BC, but there is a legit reason to run it. Those legs on the right belong to German Olympian Robert Förstemann. He's a track cyclist & only 26. Yes, he walks around with those hambones. One thing led to another the other night & Bob was in a quad-off with a fellow German, according to a tweet from Australian cyclist Greg Henderson. Full image - JUMP!

Here's Olympian Carl Bouckaert this morning getting trampled by his horse. JUMP!
Hope Solo is just becoming the badass of Team USA. First she admits to almost going to jail after throwing a rager at her house. Then, right before the Olympics, she came clean and admitted to being wasted on the Today Show after the 2008 Games. Her badass antics continued this weekend as she ripped former Team USA legend Brandi Chastain on Twitter, sending shockwaves through the soccer world. Um, of course Twitter went nuts - NSFW style! JUMP!
You might recognize Ms. Takeshita from our 18 Best Porn Names at the 2012 Olympics. As for Scozzoli, he amused the Australian media last night in London with his stingray shoulders. The guy was supposed to win gold in the 100m breaststroke. Instead, his fins weren't good enough to get a medal. Such a disappointment, Fabio. What's on the Olympics schedule today? You get more Michael Phelps & women's basketball. Let's get rolling!
Yes, Leryn Franco is at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. That was her last night during the Parade of Nations, wearing the Paraguayan red dress and showing off some insane cleav. Of course she's in town to throw the javelin, but that's not the whole story. She's property of Nike. And Nike will get its money back via you dorks who'll see Leryn wearing Nike gear. JUMP!
By far this is the best 2012 London Olympics post you'll see over the next 2.5 weeks. BC went investigating the names of athletes competing at the Games and came away with the 18 best porn names we could find. There are dongs, a Tancock, a few Wangs and plenty of others that'll totally cause you to belly LOL. Don't forget to check the athlete's sport. *That part usually goes along with the porn name. JUMP!
C'mon, Brits, let's tie up the loose dogs who might run out in front of the Olympic cycling racers. Amazingly this dog makes it across two lanes of traffic without getting drilled, quite an accomplishment for the mutt. UK Twitter dorks say this is Richmond Park, England. There's one lucky dog strolling those streets. He/she is the biggest news of the morning besides Michael Phelps barely qualifying for the 400 IM. JUMP!
No way my ass would get anywhere near that button holding together the Holley Mangold coat. That said, the Olympics are officially open and your ass can sit around today and watch like 24 hours of coverage on the NBC family of channels; Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC, NBC Sports Network, NBC, online. Here's your events schedule. Want to know what channel to watch and when? Go to Fang's Bites and look at the Day 1 TV schedule. Let's get rolling!
Just saw this during the BBC One broadcast of the London Olympics ceremony. The German Olympians were introduced and then BBC showed a shot of this guy doing the German Sieg heil salute to the athletes. That is the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, in the background with his hand over his mouth. We're still efforting the German official's name, but he has to be important to get this seat, right? More screencaps - JUMP!
Of course you can watch the Olympics opening ceremony live. It's the Internet. Here is the link to the BBC One live feed. Don't click on that little 'X' in the Play Now box or you'll have a bunch of pop-up ads. Don't say we didn't warn you. WATCH LIVE!
We are still trying to wrap our minds around the fact that shooting is considered an Olypmic "sport". The fact that there is a pregnant woman participating in the games should be evidence enough that this is no sport. However, after looking at Team USA, we have uncovered that they actually have some lookers on the squad. Something about a woman with a gun, isn't there? Odds are Amanda Furrer and Corey Cogdell can handle a piece better than any of you. JUMP!
Remember when Michael Phelps used to be interesting, fun and liked to let chicks take photos of him partying or smoking weed? Yeah, those were the days of MySpace. Seriously, four years ago we could do a MySpace photo search and find Phelps at a variety of University of Michigan houses getting smashed and chasing tail. Now? The guy is boring, doesn't get publicly sh*tfaced and is at his final Olympics. JUMP!
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!
