June 28, 2008: Divers

I alway picture Olympic class swimmers, as slim, with big shoulders. Streamlined, for speed through the water, and big shoulders from miles, and more miles, of powerful strokes.

Evidently divers don't fit that mold, as these two competitors at the U.S Olympic diving trials in Indianapolis, look more like body builders.

Chris Colwill


Haley Ishimatsu


Good luck, folks.

they look SO Pained !!!!



SPUCK  Saturday Jun 28 03:16 AM

They don't look so happy do they?

Last time I dove I landed with one shoulder on the side of the pool. I don't dive anymore.



Sheldonrs  Saturday Jun 28 03:18 AM

Cool pics. Is it just me or does the woman look more muscular than the man?



Sundae  Saturday Jun 28 05:25 AM

Don't let them fool you, they down took those pictures lying down.
I thought this might be a spotting of the elusive Seak!



sweetwater  Saturday Jun 28 08:51 AM

I'm waiting for the reposts with LOLcat-type captions.

(takes a moment to wipe drool off chin)

boy, that's an itsy-witsy bikini!



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jun 28 02:15 PM

Here's Justin Wilcox in an itsy witsy, for drooly.



birdclaw  Saturday Jun 28 03:11 PM

Do you think the guys wear some sort of protective apparatus in case they hit the water wrong? I think that would hurt much more than a belly-flop.



Cloud  Saturday Jun 28 04:25 PM

It makes sense that they would have different body compositions than swimmers. I think they use their muscles differently than the swimmers. They need muscle strength to launch themselves into the gravity well () whereas swimmers don't fight gravity. And they need flexibility and strength to contort and throw themselves into the diving positions.

I'm gonna have to pay close attention to their expressions this time when I watch the Olympics. I wonder if they're screwed up (faces) in anticipation of hitting the water, or just intense concentration, or what.

Bruce has it. That's their cum-face.

[Disclaimer: these are serious athletes in the peak of physical fitnees and I do not intend to mock the faces they pull while in pursuit of heroic Olympian dreams. Even if it does look like they've just shot their load.]

Btw, is mini-Justin making a bid for freedom there?!


newtimer  Saturday Jun 28 06:44 PM

Ah-ha!

Hmmm. Besides the expression, they both have one hand near an ear. And the other hand is cupped, as if it's suspicially hiding something small...like a Q-tip!!

Spot on, despite our joking around, I have to utmost respect for these athletes, and what they have put themselves through to get to this level.


BigV  Monday Jun 30 11:29 AM

I wonder if the lady-diver is wearing weights on her wrists to let her increase her angular momentum.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Jun 30 11:35 AM

Or they're the cuffs from her uniform at the Playboy club.



Cloud  Monday Jun 30 11:36 AM

I bet she would not appreciate being called a "lady diver."



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Jun 30 11:42 AM

I'll take that bet.



BigV  Monday Jun 30 12:00 PM

Sure. Whatever. Some people object when I address them as "Sir" or "Ma'am" out of respect, too. They're entitled.



Sundae  Monday Jun 30 12:02 PM

(I suspect it's the muff-diving overtones V)

Yes, it's "divress."


Cloud  Monday Jun 30 12:34 PM

Don't call me ma'am!



BigV  Monday Jun 30 12:38 PM

Yes, sir!



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jul 3 02:24 AM

Swimmers, slim with huge shoulders.




Flint  Thursday Jul 3 04:29 PM

Those are some insane lats. These swimmers are the people that have to use straps on back day, because the human hand can't hold the amount of weight their lats can pull.

Sorry. They probably have to use canvas straps on their hands to help hold the barbells/dumbells in place, on the day that they do their back workout.



Cloud  Thursday Jul 3 05:17 PM

oh, okay. I was worried that I missed Back Day.

or straps.

that would be Bad.




Flint  Thursday Jul 3 05:19 PM

Oh. "Straps-on-back Day" lol you freak

HungLikeJesus  Friday Jul 4 11:22 AM

Good photoshop, spudcon. All it needs to be perfect is a burning pillow.



spudcon  Friday Jul 4 11:59 AM

OK, so I did it with paint. Ain't got the big bucks for Adobe. But if I did, I aint got the big brains to figure it all out, either. It's much too huge and complicated.



HungLikeJesus  Friday Jul 4 12:11 PM

spudcon, I thought it was great. I wasn't ripping on you.

By the way, you can get GIMP for free. I think it's as good as PhotoShop. There is some learning involved.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jul 4 12:13 PM

Photoshop Elements is available free from a number of sources, and does all the things I need... and more.



spudcon  Friday Jul 4 04:34 PM

Thanx HLJ, I thought it was not as good as others I've seen here.



TheMercenary  Saturday Jul 5 07:50 PM

Is Katie Hoff swimming under someone's huge open crotch?

At first I thought someone was pulling off a photoshop trick. Or maybe my mind is just in the gutter.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jul 5 08:10 PM

I've met people that didn't know their ass from a hole in the ground, but not knowing a crotch from a ceiling, is a whole new level.

Yeah I saw that too, I thought it was supposed to be some kind of birth metaphor. Then I got a brain cramp trying to figure out what the deeper meanings of it all were and whether it had to do with pulling curtains of something or other and extinction and then I just stumbled on out of there.


monster  Saturday Jul 5 09:46 PM

I was wondering how she got her swim cap caught in a giant clitoris, too.

I wonder why they always pick butterfly photos of swimmers? is it becasue it gives the muscliest bory position?

Butterfly meet was today. My kids did good. Might post a vid. They already have the shoulder thing going on too.

I'm waffling.

Not all speedos are bad.
