    There Is Something Uncomforting About 2-Man Luge (PIC)

    The sport of luge has garnered much attention during the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver following a horrific accident which cost a participant his life during a training run just prior to the start of the games.  It is believed to be the fastest sport at the Olympics and some have defined it as a dangerous […]

  • Imagine If Biathlon Was Like This?

    Imagine If Biathlon Was Like This?

    As sports fans, we are always looking for ways to improve various competitions.  For example, they could insert piranhas into the pool during swimming races, or use a flaming pole during high jump events.  As for biathlon, this idea may be a little over the edge, but it sure as hell would make things that […]

    French Skiier Marion Rolland Is Just Embarrassing (Video)

    Just when we thought Shaq had won the award for most embarrassing moment of the week, along came French skier Marion Rolland to steal the spotlight. It is no secret that the sport of alpine skiing can be quite dangerous at times, as competitors are always at risk to experience rather disastrous tumbles down the […]

    Alex Ovechkin’s Skate Blades Are On Fire

    There should be no questioning Alex Ovechkin’s pride for his home country, Russia.  After all, the Washington Capitals’ sniper has made it clear to the world that he intends to leave the NHL, if need be, in order to play at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. When Ovi took to the ice with […]

    Human Trampoline Torpedo (GIF)

    Trampolines are ridiculously fun.  I remember as a kid one of my friends had one and all I wanted to do after school everyday was jump on his trampoline.  In this little gif, all the fun and games involved in trampolines are exposed for how dangerous, and hilarious, they can be. Now everyone has seen […]

    Team China Sexual Stretches at the Olympics (Video)

    What’s Team China preparing for here — some ice dancing or some gang banging?  Take a look at these two Chinese Olympic athletes stretching by the closed concession stand in preparation for Lord knows what competition it is they’re participating in. The Chinese lady is doing some serious lower back and neck stretches, as if […]

    Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis Nyquil Ad is, um, Depressing

    I’m not quite sure what to make of the following Nyquil advertisement.  The medicine is supposed to help with a cold and give you a better night’s rest “for a better [looking] tomorrow.”  However, they’ve depicted U.S. snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis as if she has just overdosed on the medicine (like a few celebrities have in […]

    If you’re taking your kitten out for a little stroll in the dead of winter, why not try giving it some Olympic ski goggles?  Then your little kitty can feel like Lindsay Vonn as it saunters about in the snow.  Heck, even the gold bell around its neck can be the pseudo gold medal.  If […]

  • Georgian Luger Dies after Horrifying Crash at Olympics (Video)

    Georgian Luger Dies after Horrifying Crash at Olympics (Video)

    Tragedy has struck the Winter Olympics. I can’t imagine the 2010 Vancouver Games starting off on a more sour note than it has with this horrific, heart-wrenching, accident that occurred to a Georgian Luger, Nodar Kumaritsashvili, during a trial run. Coming around one of the bends, his luge flung him off the track, sending him […]

  • Next Time Remember to let Go – Hammer Toss Fail (Video)

    Next Time Remember to let Go – Hammer Toss Fail (Video)

    I didn’t know hammer throwing was still a sport, but apparently it takes place during the summer Olympics.  Unfortunately, for the sport, it probably receives pretty low ratings.   Maybe it’s just me, but watching steroidal men throw a weight attached to a wire as far as they can doesn’t really get me pumped up. […]

  • Italian Skier Wipes Out and Screams in Pain (Video)

    Italian Skier Wipes Out and Screams in Pain (Video)

    We are coining a new term here at Total Pro Sports today. It’s called “Ski-reaming”. “Ski-reaming” is when you crash badly while skiing then scream extremely loudly because of the massive pain from the wipe out. Unfortunately for her, Nadia Fanchini is the first example of this new term, demonstrated after she loses balance and […]

    When Ski Jumping Meets Freestyle Aerials (GIF)

    The 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver are only a few weeks away, and although much of the talk heading into the Opening Ceremonies has revolved around the ice rinks (thanks to Stephen Colbert’s US Speed Skating sponsorship and Canada’s undeniable love for hockey), that shouldn’t take any attention away from the action on the slopes. […]

    Do you think figure skating is lame? Well, take a look at Kiira “there are two i’s in hot” Korpi and reassess your  thoughts right this instant.

    Dubai Marathon Winner Pukes as Crosses Finish Line (picture)

    Caveat: These pictures are not for the faint of heart.  As you can see it’s a lady crossing the finish line (first, no less) of a marathon (the Dubai Marathon) and puking at the same time.  Oddly enough, for as unhealthily frail as she looks, the puke looks like it has some chunks in it […]
