Things I Don't Understand About the Olympics

// Why the female gymnasts have to cover their entire arms but leave half their bootys and entire legs bare, but the male gymnasts have bare shoulders and arms but have everything else covered all the way down to their toes.


//Also why this year all of a sudden it's ok for the male gymnasts to wear flowy shorts that make viewers really nervous every single time they do a handstand.

//How come in swimming you're not allowed to have a SINGLE BODY hair but it's totally ok to wear earrings?

//How synchronized diving is scored. I saw a team execute what looked like a horrible dive because they weren't in sync at all, but the announcers said it was executed "nearly perfectly!" And then another team was perfectly in sync but one of the divers didn't enter the water totally vertically and that was probably going to be "a devastating blow" to them.


//How exactly do you go about being a world famous trampolinist?

//When you're done with the Olympics do you have any future careers that don't have to do with being an announcer for future Olympics? (Looking at you, Tara Lipinski and Nastia Lukin.)

//How come some of the swimmers wear swimsuits practically down to their knees but some of them only wear the bikini kind?

//How are the female beach volleyball competitors comfortable competing in underwear? Aren't the worried about something slipping? Or like, sand getting places where you NEVER want sand?

//Does anybody actually watch all 6 hours of the cycling race?

//Why do the table tennis players stare so intently at the ball before the serve?

//Do the winter Olympic athletes and the summer Olympic athletes ever hang out?

That's all, if you need me I'll be feeling patriotic and un-athletic by sitting on my sofa drinking wine and wearing red, white, and blue.

  1. 1) it's just more traditional and it generally just looks better/nicer. Not all of them wear long sleeves, there was a girl at worlds in 1 sleeve & a lot of countries wear tanks we just don't see them as often. I don't think there's an official rule anymore.

    2) the men have always worn shorts (at least in modern history). They wear a regular leo under (also under their pants) so if the shorts did fall they'd be basically in a speedo type thing

    Whatever # the one about swimsuits is) that's also just about look and being traditional. Speedos are more traditional but not everyone is comfortable in them or like some countries wear the jammers (longer shorts) normally so that's what they compete in. No rules about it except I think no more full body suits

    If you get answers to any others let me know. Especially the synchro diving one because I used to do that and we definitely lost a lot of points if we were out of synch even if the dives were both good so I have no idea. Judging for diving and gymnastics has changed so much that I'm completely lost. Also, I know swimmers shave for maximum aerodynamics so maybe earrings don't really affect that? Not really sure about that. Guess I'll have to keep watching.

  4. Synchronized diving is mystifying to me (much like curling during the Winter Olympics) but I still just can't pry my eyes away!

  8. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
