Friday Athletic and Aesthetic thread! Spring is in the air edition!
Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? So, time for more nice pictures of sportsmen and women. In case you haven’t seen an A&A thread before, the aim is to celebrate the human form in sport, as well as having some great examples of sports photography. So, clean, safe for work images only, please, and only of real sportsfolk!
I’ll start with a girl who’s a real inspiration, Anna Turney;
And here she is in action;
Try as I might, there was no way I could keep up!
And, how about a little retro muddiness as well;
Barrie Clarke, Tim Gould and not sure who the third chap is!
So, over to you, let’s be seeing some fine pics please!Posted 6 years ago
David Zabriskie, vegan cyclist.
“In 2005, David set a record for the fastest Individual time trial in Tour de France history.
David is the only American to win stages in all three of the European Grand Tours: the Giro de Italia, the Tour de France, and the Vuelta Espana.
David has podium finished multiple times at the World Time Trial Championships and is the reigning and five time National Time Trial Champion.
In 2009, David attempted general classification riding and won second place overall in the very popular Tour of California, and went on to podium finish in most of his subsequent races that year.”
At some point I can’t remember when I read or heard some astonishing numbers about the impact the meat industry has on the environment. That information really made me take a hard look at things.
carl lewis… black, meat eater.
Lewis is vegan. He reached the top of his career aged thirty on a vegan diet which he has claimed is better suited to him because he can eat a larger quantity without affecting his athleticism and he believes that switching to a vegan diet can lead to improved athletic performance
He’s definitely black, though.Posted 6 years ago
aren’t we allowed to make up stuff on the iterwebz anymore? 😆 next thing people will be pointing out that one minute i’m all over yeti like a rash and the next i’m profesing my love to mrsconsequence!
my question still stands, why do we need to know what the athletes eating preferences are, especially when its an A&A thread? just seems a really, really random thing to shoe-horn in to me!Posted 6 years ago
you’re assuming i’m assuming young man 🙄 i just picked any old photo i could of someone running then added pointless information not relevant to the thread.
why would you jump to the assumption (before anyone had posted anything about dietry preferences – and especially as people only did so in response to your shoe-horning it in) that we’d make that assumption?
you crazy vegans 😉Posted 6 years ago
