Olympic Athletes Funny Photos

Posted by at 2:11 am in Olympics, Writing Prompt | Permalink

London2012The Olympics are now underway, and we are eager spectators of every thrilling minute! We’ve saved some of our favorite photos from the first few days in London. View below the athletes battling for Olympic gold, giving their all in practice and competition. I include the official “serious” captions for each photo, but you can have fun creating your own captions in the Comments.

Diving3German diver Sascha Klein doing a cannonball into the Olympic swimming pool. . . Well, actually, that might be a lie. He’s probably doing something much harder than a cannonball.


Jana Berzko-Marggrander trying to tie her leg to her arm with that pretty ribbon. . . . or maybe she is performing her Rythmic Gymnastics routine.


A soccer ball miraculously explodes out of Honduras player Alfredo Mejia’s head while Zakaria Labyad from Morrocco looks confused about this strange event. . . OK, I admit I totally made that up.

HatsBrazil vs. Great Britain in Round 1 of a new Olympic event for 2012: Crazy Hat Wrestling. (Um, I don’t need to tell you that’s not really an Olympic event, do I?)

While the Olympic Games continue, leave YOUR captions to these photos in the Comments.
