Two Mongolian National wrestling coaches disrobed in front of an arena filled with fans and onlookers. This was in protest to a bad call made by the officials/judges during a wrestling match at the Olympics that impacted the outcome.
This was supposed to be the bronze medal match for wrestling at the Rio Games. It was down to Mandakhnaran Ganzorig of Mongolia and Ikhtiyor Navruzov of Uzbekistan.
There was about 7 seconds left on the clock and Mongolia’s Ganzorig began celebrating by running around the area in what he thought would be a 7 – 6 victory in his favor. However, this was not the case, Uzbekistan challenged the scoring and by stating the wrestler (Ganzorig) failed to continue engaging with Navruzov and there was time left on the clock.
Meet Kasi Bennett, the young lady dating the fastest man alive, Olympic gold medal artist X9, Usain Bolt.
Bennett, 26, hails from the Jamaican town of Old Harbour and now is hailed for successfully reeling in one big, fast fish, in Bolt, who is 29.
Bolt has been quiet about his relationship in the past, telling journalist Ian Boyne in January that while he’s been dating the “uptown Jamaican girl” for nearly three years, he wants to keep their coupling private. Continue reading
Suddenly find your career in tatters after some sort of major indiscretion? Like telling the world (via your mommy) that you got robbed at gun point when you were really on a late night bender? Better call crisis PR guru Matthew Hiltzik. In what could be noted as his only good move in days, Ryan Lochte has done just that.
Lochte, 32, has officially hired Hiltzik Strategies to deal with the intense fallout following his now infamous “look mom! I got robbed at the 2016 Rio Olympics!”
“Hiltzik has helped celebrities including Justin Bieber, Harvey Weinstein and Alec Baldwin in the past,” The Wrap’s Brian Flood wrote. “Hiltzik also works with troubled athletes — he helped MLB star Ryan Braun when he was accused of using performance-enhancing drugs. Continue reading
It seems like everyone these days has a feeling or emotion and nobody can say anything. What is going on in our country when an openly gay, female comedian, who champions for the rights of all humanity (including animals) is labeled a “racist” for telling a joke?
Ellen DeGeneres, who should be labeled “Ellen the generous” because she spends ALL her time on her talk show helping others who have fell on hard times, has recently come under fire for a Usain Bolt meme she posted on Twitter.
Ellen who is a fan of meme’s and regularly creates and shares them on her show was just trying to be funny, spread some laughs and reiterate what the world already knows………Usain Bolt is fast as hell. But instead of laughs she got backlash and the typical “you’re racist” responses. Continue reading
Brazilian twins Bia and Branca Feres blew up the internet between 2008 to 2010, and now they’re finally returning to show off their synchronized swimming skills in the Rio Olympics this Thursday!
Bia and Branca, 29, competed in the 2008 Olympics, however, they did not make the team. But that’s all about to change!
Then again in 2012 we hoped that the ladies would once again appear in the Summer Olympics, but because they each got breast implants in 2011 they missed out on the Games because they hadn’t been able to qualify. Continue reading
One would assume that Olympics medals handed out during the summer games in Rio are actually made of gold, silver, and bronze.. Guess again. The reality is more complicated.
Because distributing pure gold medals would be cost prohibitive, the actual gold medals are made mostly of silver with a thin layer of real gold bonded for color. The silver medal is made from silver that is recycled from, among other items, X-ray plates, car parts, and mirrors.
Gold medals at the Olympics haven’t actually been 100% gold since the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. Since then, they’ve actually been mainly made of silver, with a gold plating on top to give them the expected appearance. Continue reading
