Olympic divers are spectacular athletes because they perform gravity-defying stunts from great heights. However, they also make hilarious faces in the process. It’s a fact that their expressions don’t flatter them because they are ridiculous (via Sad And Useless).
This doesn’t take away from their athletic abilities and usually, fans don’t zoom in on their faces during competitions. But stills from diving routines show the funny expressions that they make. The one above is a fine example of these ridiculous moments.
Here’s a still from Spurs vs. West Ham in the Premier League. The goalkeeper, Adrian, came forward to claim the ball. Everybody appreciates when a goalkeeper has the confidence to take command of their area. They jump out and grab the ball to alleviate pressure on their defense.
But Adrian made one horrible error. Instead of catching the football, he seized the head of one of his teammates (via Sky Sports). Cheikou Kouyate didn’t know what happened when Adrian wrapped his gloves around him. This is an iconic moment in soccer history because it’s so dumb.
The Tour De France is one of the classiest events on the sporting calendar. Cyclists race along the classic route as they put their physical and mental resolve to the test. It’s also considered a classy event and brings a lot of high-end sponsorships to the table (via GQ).
However, these endorsements probably don’t want to see images like the one above. Everybody asks what happens if a cyclist needs to use the bathroom during a race. Sometimes they allow it to just flow but they’ll also stop in groups and relieve themselves.
