Alex Gregory is a two-time Olympic rower from England. During racing season, he competes at the World Championships and at the Olympics, but he’s recently been rowing in the Arctic Ocean in an attempt to break a series of world records and raise money for charity.
The ecosystem of the human body does not want for complexity, nor do the myriad of idiot things we inflict upon it. This is perhaps nowhere more apparent than in the world of sports, where athletes willingly submit their bodies, like monks to their vows, in pursuit of Larry having a nice, drunken night because a bunch…
Heard about that lady who went in for cataract surgery and was found to have 27 contact lenses in her eyes? That was pretty gross. Who hasn’t had things stuck in their body for years on end without noticing it, though?
Following yesterday’s 16th stage of the Tour de France, Bora-Hansgrohe rider Paweł Poljański grammed a photo of his gnarly legs. I put it below the jump because it’s legitimately gross, so consider yourself warned:
Last weekend, Michigan-based fight hosts KnockOut Promotions held something resembling an MMA bout between Jesse Reasoner and Sean Needham. It took place in the super heavyweight division and both amateur fighters weighed in at over 270 pounds. Although the fight was held on the water in Muskegon, Mich., it was an…
Canadian rider Antoine Duchesne was one of the last cuts from Direct Energie’s Tour de France team. The team decided not to bring sprinter Brian Coquard, which made Duchesne’s role on the team somewhat unnecessary. All that training for nothing is a huge bummer, especially because Duchesne turned his legs into…
Who knew that teeth hampered your offensive ability? Isaiah Thomas came alive after losing a front chomper, waking up the Celtics offense en route to a quick 12 first-quarter points.
Zach Werenski sacrificed his face to stop a Phil Kessel shot, only to see the Penguins score anyway moments later as Bryan Rust got the puck past Sergei Bobrovsky while blood poured from the Blue Jackets defenseman’s visage. It’s bad times in Columbus, as Pittsburgh has tied it up 3-3.
Marc Methot came into tonight’s game against the Penguins with 10 fingers. He left with approximately 9.8 after Sidney Crosby slashed at him in the first period.
It takes a special person to be able to say, “Hey, look I got a new piercing,” immediately after impaling their face on a tree branch.
The Bucks have played the Cavaliers tough this year, and they somehow ended the first half against Cleveland up by two. They had to play a bit of the half without Michael Beasley, after his leg buckled and he had to leave the game with a knee injury. The Bucks announced that he’d suffered a left knee sprain and…
Here’s a couple getting after it during the national anthem that preceded last night’s Stadium Series game in Pittsburgh. Which part is more unsettling: the irreverent PDA, or the fact that he’s in a Penguins jersey and she’s wearing a Flyers one?
American University’s Liam Purdy won the Patriot League 800-meter indoor title on Sunday, and he did it despite losing his dang shoe partway through the race.
New Zealand Breakers big man Akil Mitchell suffered a horrific and gruesome injury in a game earlier this morning, when his eyeball “puffed out of its socket” after being caught by an opponent going for a rebound.
Enduring a Pittsburgh winter in the open stands as your beloved Dolphins get their doors blown off in the playoffs is unpleasant enough, but barfing on top of your uneaten stadium pizza is, well, the puke on top of the uneaten stadium pizza that was this fan’s day.
Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett held onto a Russell Wilson pass despite having his leg mangled and exploded into two pieces as he rolled into the end zone. Warning! This video is gruesome.
The dislocated finger is bad. Watching it get relocated is worse.
The good people at National Geographic host a program called “Animal Fight Night.” Reader, it is exactly what you’d expect.
Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis sprained his ankle celebrating the Indians winning the pennant, but he says he should be good to play tonight in Game 1 of the World Series against the Chicago Cubs.
