Being an athlete– especially an Olympic athlete– requires not only physical and mental prowess, but also a basic understanding of the body and how to facilitate that body in all different elements.
The graphic on sailing is my favorite, mostly because I’ve always wanted to go on a sailboat but never have. However, I’m certain that one day I’ll make it to the Olympics in this sport. Thanks to MCT for giving me a start.
You may have heard the incredible story of Oscar Pistorius, the first ever double amputee to compete in the Olympics. This is a graphic of his prosthetic legs and explains how they work.
Ok, who knew that this grueling open water swim was an Olympic event, let alone one of the hardest? I’m amazed at the ingenuity this sport has shown in creating a way to feed the swimmers in the water. Very interesting.
Gymnastics is really my favorite sport to watch at the Olympics. Look at how much goes into just the landing!
