Tank Top Tuesday

See, I told you the rest of the world wouldn't be far behind. Today Olympians from around the globe get their due. Consider this the United Nations of tank tops. And, before you ask, vests in lieu of tank tops totally count. Unless you have a problem with gorgeous, gay, Norwegian handball players. Didn't think so. Go world!

Gro Hammerseng and Katja Nyberg, Norway, handballThe best possible lesbian twin syndrome.
[Hat tip, Vibeke!]

Leryn Franco, Paraguay, javelinMystery of the hot Paraguayan from the opening ceremonies: solved.

Laure Manaudou, France, swimmingHer “scandal” was utter rubbish; they'd never do that to a man.

Kristin Gauthier, Canada, canoe-kayakOh, Canada...
[Hat tip, Marya!]

Jessica Zelinka, Canada, heptathlon...what great muscles you have.
[Hat tip, shasta!]

Shelly-Ann Fraser, Jamaica, 100m dashThis is how it feels to be the fastest woman alive.

Rita Dravucz, Hungary, water poloMarco! Marco! Marco!

Yelena Isinbayeva, Russia, pole vaultFaster, stronger, higher, hotter.

Jelena Jankovic, Serbia, tennisIs it just me, or do leather tank tops seem like they'd chaff?

Stephanie Rice, Australia, swimmingGoogle image search her name, she seems fun.

Erin Phillips, Australia, basketballRopes? International rules must really be different.
[Aussies hat tip, Tracey!]

Victoria Pendleton, Great Britain, cyclingBike to work day just got a lot more interesting.

Guo Jingjing, China, divingBecause a swimsuit is just a tank top that didn't know when to stop.

Larissa Franca & Ana Paula, Brazil, beach volleyball

Yelena Isinbayeva is hotter than hottest hot. Plus she's a great athlete.

Based on these photos I also think that men should be banned from the Olympics. :) More room for women!

Am I the only one who's thinking we need to cut down on the number of years we need to wait for the olympics? And not so much because of the games either ;)

Dear Olympic Athletes,

I want your abs.

Love,

DS, your TT Tuesdays (T^3s) make Mondays worth living through. Thank you!

I used to live next to the field where the Dutch field hockey team practised. Those were the days...

Nice to see a fellow brit girl among those pictures. Though I can't imagine how uncomfortable it must have been for Victoria Pendleton to pose on her trek bike in the buff... http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/imageBank/v/Vicky-P.jpg

Jelena Jankovic... sigh...

This has turned into the best Tuesday ever.

DS, you rule :)

Hey, whole Olympics are all TT (almost). You would not lack material for a year. Good times.

As a Canadian, I tend to prefer the Winter Olympics just because we perform better. That said, I think the Games would be even better if athletes were forced to wear tank tops and butt-tight short shorts.

The Dutch filed hockey team almost made me fall over! I mean 'field' hockey...sheesh.

OT: Rachel Maddow, brilliant, funny and out political commentator will have her own show on MSNBC beginning Sept. 8th following Keith Olbermann's "Countdown". You spotlighted her a couple of weeks ago. She was truly blushing when Olbermann announced on his show 8/19. She is wonderful and smart.

Some teams even contain some gay couples.

Gro Hammerseng and Katja Nyberg of Norway's handball team are in a long-term lesbian relationship.

Top blog!!
