These Funny Sports Pictures Will Make You Laugh All Day
1 The Elegance Of Figure Skating
The 2014 Winter Olympics brought us this gem of a photo. While twirling across the ice during the Figure Skating Women’s Short Program, Japan’s Mao Asada was caught on camera making this face.
While figure skating is all about elegance, it’s also pretty difficult. Mao’s body may have been moving gracefully, but her face told the story of just how much effort she was exerting.
2 What’s Happening?
It’s not clear what happened in the women’s 400m semi-finals, but Jamaican runner Shericka Jackson seemed very surprised by what she saw in front of her.
Is another athlete reacting strangely to her position in the race? Is she herself surprised by her performance, good or bad? Is it someone in the stands who is too intense? We would love to know!
3 Dazed And Confused
Getting tackled to the ground while playing football is already difficult and painful. However, the situation is made even worse when your helmet flies off.
While football players’ facial expressions are usually blocked by their helmets, this image shows what’s going on underneath the mask when they get tackled to the ground. Needless to say, it looks more than a little painful.
4 Not Quite There
While baseball players make it look easy when they step up to bat, it has to be more than a little intimidating to have a fastball flying at your head. Sometimes, instincts kick in and players shy away from the ball, which seems to be what’s happening to Chase Headley in this photo.
Unfortunately, the ball actually seems to be pretty far from hitting Headley. Still, his moment of temporary panic resulted in a perfectly funny photo.
5 Dunking On Yourself
During the 2012 NBA season, Shelden Williams made the mistake of dunking on himself while playing for the Brooklyn Nets.
While he got the ball through the basket, he also managed to hit himself in the face in the process. At least he scored a few points, right?
6 King Of Faces
Basketball player Jordan Poole, member of the Golden State Warriors team, is well known for his talent as a player, but also as a funny man who always makes funny faces.
This photo is just one of many examples. Every game he makes a funny face to add to his collection. This player will have marked his career in two distinct ways! We wonder what situation inspired this particular face.
Ben Zobrist is known as a truly great baseball player. However, that’s not the impression you might get from looking at this photo.
While playing for the Tampa Bay Rays, Zobrist looks entirely unprepared to catch the baseball that’s seemingly flying right at his head. While he’s certainly keeping his eye on the ball, let’s hope he managed to react quickly enough to avoid getting hit in the face.
8 A Meme-Worthy Hit
Marouane Fellaini is a popular soccer player for Manchester United. While he’s usually praised for his moves on the field, this one photo became an unfortunate defining moment for him.
Due to the expression on Fellaini’s face and the obvious painful impact of being hit by a ball, this photo became perfect fodder for meme-makers across the internet. Thankfully, Fellaini was in on the joke and even tweeted the photo himself, thanking fans for all their funny jokes.
9 Giving It All
Tennis is a very physically demanding sport. It’s not only about having good cardio to run from one side of the court to the other to hit the ball, it’s also about having a lot of strength to hit it, which usually comes in very fast because it’s been hit so hard.
We only have to look at the players’ faces when they hit the ball to understand that their whole body is involved in this effort! Raphael Nadal really gave it his all on this shot. Let’s hope he at least scored a point after this shot!
10 Wrong Way
It’s hard to focus on much when you’re in the middle of a game. That’s doubly true for this hockey player, who couldn’t even pay enough attention to turn his water bottle the right way.
Before he realized his embarrassing mistake, someone managed to snap this photo. Now, he’ll never be able to live this moment down.
11 Synchronized Swimmer’s Rage
Synchronized swimming is quite a sport! Already physically demanding, the athletes have to make sure they follow the music with their movement, but also with their face! Synchronized swimmers are also actresses, in a way.
Have you ever noticed that they always make strange faces in relation to the intensity of the music and the movements produced? Here, for example, it must have been a very intense segment of the number, because the swimmer looks quite angry! We would give her a good grade just for fear of retaliation!
During a baseball game, fans are allowed to catch balls that are hit out of the bounds of the field. However, it seems one of these fans got a little too excited about the possibility of taking a ball home.
While outfielder Scott Podsednik was still trying to catch the ball for himself, he was hit in the face by an over-eager fan. Let’s hope the fan didn’t actually mean to punch him. Still, he should have been much more careful about trying to catch a ball that was still in play.
13 Dance It Out
This figure skater was obviously jamming out to his music in the middle of his performance. While his dance moves were certainly worthy of applause, his facial expression was not.
If the photo had been taken just a second later, this athlete may have looked normal. Unfortunately, while staying focused on keeping upright on the ice, the figure skater made this hilarious face.
14 Big Height Difference
This photo isn’t inherently funny, but you can’t help but laugh at the height difference between these two players. At 7 feet, 7 inches, Manute Bol was one of the tallest players to ever play in the NBA. Spud Webb, on the other hand, is one of the shortest players in the NBA at just 5 feet, 6 inches.
Seeing these two players stand together shows just how drastic their height difference really was. Still, both were incredibly competitors.
15 The Big Effort
Athletes who specialize in diving are very impressive. After all, diving is much more than getting on the springboard and jumping down while trying to make as little splash as possible as you enter the water.
Imagine having to turn your body in all directions while in free fall. It’s extremely physically demanding, as this diver’s face shows. Fortunately, a dive only lasts a few seconds!
16 The Love of the Ball
From the looks of this photo, it seems the goalie just stopped the soccer ball from going into the goal. But the sense of love and admiration in his eyes as he looks at the ball is definitely worthy of a chuckle.
He looks truly enamored by the soccer ball in front of him. Maybe that’s why he decided to be a goalie.
17 A View Of Terror
We don’t know what soccer player Phil Jones was seeing when he made that funny face in the middle of a game, but it must have been terrifying based on his expression!
With his forehead wrinkled, his eyes wide open and his mouth wide open, revealing all his teeth, he looks completely terrified! Did the other team score a goal? Did one of his teammates get fouled and get hurt (for real)?
In general, baseball isn’t considered a contact sport. However, sometimes the players do experience a few rough collisions with each other.
In this photo, middle fielder Jonathan Villar slams into the second baseman, Brandon Phillips. While the collision looks painful, it also results in quite a hilarious photo as Villar desperately tries to steal second base.
19 Ball to the Nose
Sometimes photographers really do manage to snap a photo at the perfect moment. Obviously, this basketball player fell to the ground and lifted his head just as the basketball slammed into his nose.
The resulting photo looks like the dog trying to play with a ball, though we’re sure the impact of the ball on this man’s nose was incredibly painful.
This football player walked into the TV shot at exactly the wrong moment—or the right one, depending on how you look at it. Having just removed his face mask, the Carolina Panthers player looks incredibly confused.
The referee who’s also in the shot makes the photo all the funnier. His perfect composure only makes the football player look even more ridiculous.
21 Please Catch Me
Pairs figure skating requires a lot of trust in another person. Not only do you have to be in sync with your partner, but you also have to trust them to catch you each and every time you’re thrown in the air.
The woman in this photo doesn’t seem to have that trust. Instead, she looks absolutely terrified that her partner is going to drop her on the ground. Given the talent it takes to compete in figure skating, we’re sure her partner caught her, but you wouldn’t be able to tell from looking at this photo.
22 Dingle Berry
So many things had to fall into place to create this perfect photo. Not only did the football players with these last names join the same team, but they also happened to sit next to each other on the bench.
Let’s hope Dingle Berry isn’t indicative of the rest of the players on this team. Otherwise, they probably won’t win a single game.
23 The Great Astonishment
Synchronized swimming is an intense team sport. Each member must move at the same time to the rhythm of the music, and the expression on their faces must also match perfectly.
It’s all about facial expression! In the scenario of this number, the swimmers definitely had to act as if something both amazing and scary was happening in front of them. Their expression is priceless!
24 Piggyback Time?
This soccer player was obviously trying to keep his opponent from getting the ball. However, his blocking tactic was a bit too aggressive.
While he did keep the opposing team from gaining control of the ball, he also looked like he took part in an impromptu piggyback ride in the middle of a soccer game.
The shot put is a very demanding discipline. It may not look like much, but it’s a lot harder than you think! Did you know that the weight of this famous little metal ball, for women, is no less than 4kg?
Now that explains the face of this athlete as she prepares to throw it as far as she can with all her might. After all, it’s a known fact that throwing with your face really does make you throw harder!
25 Let Me Help You
After this basketball player dunked the ball, his opponent was obviously trying to keep him from coming down from the hoop right on top of him.
However, if you just look at this photo, it seems the opposing player was giving his rival a boost to reach the basket. That’s certainly not accepted in the rules of basketball.
26 Whatever It Takes
On this picture, we can see the Chinese professional diver Qin Kai performing a dive that is visibly very demanding physically.
We can imagine the intensity of the effort deployed for this dive given the tension in his muscles, but especially the expression on his face. But after all, if that’s what it takes to win the competition, it doesn’t matter how it looks!
27 The Headless Football Player
Football players can face all kinds of malfunctions with their gear. In this case, the football player not only lost his helmet, but his shoulder pads also eased their way up over his head.
The resulting picture shows what looks like a headless football player diving to the ground. Let’s hope his misplaced gear managed to protect his head upon landing so he didn’t actually become a headless player.
28 Don’t Pick Your Friend’s Nose
Apparently, this basketball player hasn’t heard the old adage: “You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you cannot pick your friend’s nose.”
To be fair, he was just trying to block the shot. But the resulting situation was probably pretty gross for both players.
29 Angry As A Bull
Bullfighting is a popular sport in many parts of the world. However, this bull was obviously in no mood to play the game.
Rather than waiting for a matador, this bull decided to go after the first person he saw. This must be where the phrase “angry as a bull” comes from.
30 Possessed Player
There are probably very few tennis players who don’t make funny and strange faces when they hit a ball with all their might during a match, and the American Taylor Dent, now retired, was no exception.
Not only is his face very strange here, giving the impression that he is literally possessed by the devil, but his left hand, leaning on his chest, is placed in a very strange position. Are you okay, Taylor?
31 Up Close And Personal
Playing basketball sometimes requires you to get up close and personal with other players. It’s just part of the game.
But this photo was snapped at such a perfect moment that it makes it seem like one basketball player is planting a tender kiss on the other’s cheek. Let’s hope things weren’t too awkward between these two men when the game was over.
32 Scared Figure Skaters
In this picture, German athletes Nelli Zhiganshina and Alexander Gazsi perform their dance free program during the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Rostelecom Cup.
We don’t know what was going on at that moment of their routine, but it was certainly very scary! From the look of them and the spider in the woman’s hair, clearly their expression is in keeping with the theme of the number!
33 Lost Wheels
This man didn’t have an easy time when he decided to take his dirt bike out for a ride. Instead of nailing the perfect landing, he somehow managed to lose both his wheels in mid-air.
Let’s hope he avoided any real damage when he hits the ground. However, he might want to steer clear of dirt bikes for a while.
34 The Scary Throw
American basketball player Chris Bosh, who played for the Toronto Raptors and then the Miami Heat until his retirement in 2017, has more than one funny face to his credit during his 14-year career.
The face he’s making in this photo is certainly one of the best. As he is about to throw the ball, he looks totally scared! Is this a trick to throw off his opponents? Was he shouting something to one of his teammates? The possibilities are endless!
35 Block To The Face
It’s not uncommon for basketball players to smack each other in the face while trying to keep the ball on their team. However, when the Utah Jazz played the Houston Rockets, the photographer managed to time this hilarious photo perfectly.
Let’s hope this player’s nose was okay after he had a palm shoved into his face.
36 Desperate Return Of Serve
This tennis player was not about to lose a point. Unfortunately, he also wasn’t in the right position to return the ball to his opponent’s side of the court.
Still, he made a tricky dive to position himself in a place where he might actually hit the ball. We’re not sure if it paid off, but it did provide us with this hilarious photo.
37 The Force Of The Face
If one thing is clear from looking at all the funniest photos of athletes, it’s that it’s all in the face. The strength of the face is real and without it, nothing would be the same.
Clearly, this athlete’s dive was much more successful than if her face had remained impassive. It shows concentration, intense exhalation and the deployment of all her strength!
38 Punch To The Face
There’s no way this referee actually punched this player in the face. However, the timing of the photo certainly makes it look like he threw a perfect right hook.
However, if he had thrown a punch, we can only imagine how badly his hand must have been hurt. The facemask would have protected the football player, but the ref had nothing to protect his hand from smacking into hard metal.
39 Just Missed It
This player for the Chicago Cubs was trying to keep his opponent from sliding into first base. Unfortunately, he massively misjudged where the ball was heading.
Instead of landing right in his glove, the baseball smacked into the player’s face. To add insult to injury, someone snapped a photo at exactly the right moment, showing just how far the player was from catching the ball.
40 Goal!…Or Not
During the 2012 NFL season, the referees who were normally on the field went on strike. Therefore, they were replaced with temporary workers. However, the decision led to a lot of confusion, as you can see here.
While one ref seems to be calling for a goal, the other seems to be saying not yet. The lack of agreement between the two refs was confusing for fans and players alike. But now that the seasoned refs are back on the field, football fans can look back and laugh at moments likely these.
41 Manning Misses A Pass
Super Bowl 48 gave us this hilarious image of Peyton Manning. Usually a star quarterback, Manning had a painfully bad day. In the first play of the game, the snap went right over Manning’s head.
As you can see in the photo, Manning was nowhere near the ball. Considering that’s how the game started, it’s no surprise that the Denver Broncos lost 43-8.
42 Confused Referees
Again, the referees in this picture were not on the same page. In fact, they’re pointing in entirely opposite directions.
Who should the players listen to? We don’t know. But we do know these referees should communicate a little more effectively.
43 The Match Of The Ages
Sometimes you can’t hold back. Even if you are in an arena filled with fans watching you from every angle imaginable.
Don’t be shy, they paid for a show. Why not make it something to remember?
44 Get Your Head In The Game
Coaching sports can sometimes get messy. You’ve got to make sure that you are focused 100% of the time.
If you don’t, you could end up being forced to pay attention like this guy was. If only he were watching, he could’ve avoided the entire incident.
45 Not Today
Father of the year! As a parent, you have to protect your children at all costs.
Even if you have to protect them from a bat gone wild. Danger can come in many shapes and sizes, you must be prepared for it all.
46 New Version Of The Nosebleeds
Who doesn’t love sitting courtside at a basketball game? You’re right there in the action!
What most people don’t realize is that you are actually in your own version of the nosebleeds. You could quite literally get a nosebleed.
47 Splash Zone
This photo looks like it’s straight from a scene of Never Back Down itself. You’d have to hit someone pretty hard for all of this to go flying like that.
It’s just a typical occurrence in any professional fight, no matter how gross it may seem.
48 Invisible Hockey Player
This is the most surprising and exciting battle in the history of hockey! The player in blue and white literally fights with the invisible man!
We don’t know how the player in red could have lost his hockey helmet like that, but it makes for an unforgettable sporting moment!
49 Don’t Bother
Olympic athletes train for years, sometimes for only a few minutes of competition. The most important minutes of their lives!
But apparently, these 8 judges didn’t care about this athlete and his gliding. Imagine giving everything you got just to be ignored like that!
50 Champagne Face
We’re used to seeing people being showered with champagne, especially at the end of a sports competition, but we rarely get to see such precise moments.
This photo was taken at the exact moment when the champagne covers the man’s face, following its shape perfectly.
51 Ostrich Woman
It’s no secret that gymnasts are very flexible. To the point where, during a movement, their head can disappear to be replaced by a foot!
Are we the only ones who think that this picture looks like an ostrich running very fast?
52 Nice Mustache
These two wrestlers are in the middle of a fight, and it doesn’t look good for the one who ends up on the ground, in a submission hold.
However, a funny moment occurred when he tried to get out of the hold and the mustache tattooed on his forearm ended up right in front of his opponent’s face.
53 Flying Soriano
Here you can see former baseball player Alfonso Soriano hovering over a Cardinals player.
This image is really impressive. Soriano is practically parallel to the ground, giving the impression that he is actually flying!
54 The Jedi
From the look on this tennis player’s face as the ball comes flying at him, it looks like he is trying to control it with the Force, like a real Jedi.
We don’t know if it worked, though. We hope so, because from the picture, we’re not sure if he had time to lift his racket to hit the ball!
55 Having Fun?
We strongly suspect what happened here. This golfer has been hit by a ball where it hurts a lot, and the player behind him can feel the pain and sympathize with him.
But even if we can easily guess the situation behind their expression, it is much too easy to imagine something else entirely!
56 Breaking Through Water
This photo was taken at the perfect moment when American swimmer Tyler Clary was getting out of the water. This phenomenon perfectly shown here is called surface tension.
The tension exerted by the various electrostatic forces between the water molecules causes the surface of the water to behave like a stretched elastic membrane.
57 Sand Waves
This picture is amazing! There’s nothing quite impressive in a beach volleyball player falling to the ground while moving sand, obviously.
But when it happens, we don’t notice as well the effect of her falling into the sand, while this picture captures perfectly the shock and the resulting waves.
58 Four-Armed Player
Who has never dreamed of having four arms? Imagine being able to do twice as much at the same time!
It would also be definitely useful for a soccer player, especially if it is the goalkeeper! Unfortunately, it’s just two players from the same team simply lined up very well.
59 The Hit Is Coming
Kelly Nash is a TV reporter for Sun Sports Rays. While at Boston’s Fenway Park back in April 2013, she decided to take this selfie.
“I laughed pretty hard when I saw such a surreal picture that I had no idea I took,” she told Fox Sports Florida. Fortunately, the ball passed very close to her head, but did not hit her.
60 Farting Fire
We don’t know exactly what was going on at that point in that Saints football game, or what that player might have been eating, but he was on fire!
This photo could not have been taken at a better time. It really looks like this player is farting fire!
61 Oh, Look!
We don’t know what these two basketball players saw at the very moment they were fighting for the ball, but we are very intrigued.
See the surprise on their faces! What could be happening on this side of the court?
62 Weird Arm
But what happens to this man’s arm? Not only does it look much too small, but we can’t believe that it is in a normal position!
Just looking at this picture, it is easy to understand why baseball players, especially pitchers, frequently suffer from overuse injuries to their shoulders.
63 The Licker
When we look at this picture, we hesitate between laughing and gagging. Why does this player have his tongue out like that?
But the real question is, why is he licking his opponent’s armpit? To distract him? If so, from the look on the player’s face as he tries to throw the ball, it works.
64 Backboard Shattering Dunk
Backboard shattering dunks are quite common in basketball. After all, a player hanging on after the rim is a lot of weight on a glass backboard, no matter how solid it is!
But usually, when we see a backboard shattering dunk, it happens very quickly and we can’t see what’s going on in detail. Thanks to this picture, however, we can very well see the backboard shattering into pieces.
65 The Ghost Player
This soccer team has a ghost player! He could be anywhere blocking throws without anyone seeing him! Is this legal? And is he wearing only a helmet?
The player who owns this helmet must have moved really fast to get this far while his helmet is still in the air like this!
66 Eating The Ball
Ping-pong at the professional level is a really intense sport. It takes a lot of energy to play this sport, and this player was a little hungry!
No kidding, we hope he didn’t get that ball in his mouth, because at the speed it was going, it would have really hurt!
67 Dangerous Job
This football player is running at full speed, on a roll, but unfortunately running straight into the photographer of the game.
We can see that the player is trying to slow down his run, but we can also see the fear of the photographer who understands exactly what is about to happen to him.
68 Feeling Like Dancing
There seems to be a bit of confusion between these two tennis players as the ball comes towards them.
This photo was taken at the perfect time and angle, while the reaction of the players gives the impression that they are performing a strange dance.
69 All The Sweat
A soccer player hitting the ball with his head as Titus Bramble is doing in this picture is very common. We see dozens of such hits in every game.
However, we don’t often get to see the fountain of sweat that such a hit creates. It is impressive!
70 Making Peace
These two wrestlers are supposed to be fighting in the ring, but it looks like they have decided to make peace instead.
Indeed, this picture and their expressions seem to indicate that they are slow dancing or something like that. This image is so full of love!
71 Losing His Pants
At the time this photo was taken of a soccer player losing his pants, he looks like he is about to kick the ball directly towards the goal.
We hope that this small, embarrassing but inconsequential accident didn’t distract him too much and that he managed to get a point!
72 Gatorade Shower
Gatorade showers are typical in football for the coaches of the winning team at meaningful events. However, it happens so fast that you can usually only see the person getting the shower and then being soaked.
But this picture is so cool! It was taken at the exact moment the Gatorade hit the man’s head, and thanks to the visor of the cap he’s wearing, you can perfectly see his reaction.
73 Bull Riding
Riding a bull is definitely a very difficult thing. You only have to have tried to ride a mechanical bull in a bar to get an idea.
This man unfortunately didn’t manage to stay in place on the bull and here he is in full flight, upside down. This picture is impressive, but we hope the man is okay!
74 Broken Nose
Whether the ball was thrown or hit by a player, its velocity was definitely high.
This baseball player must have quickly regretted not catching it, and he definitely went to the hospital right away.
75 Bike Surfing
This man is literally riding the waves on his dirt bike. How is this even possible?
Well, Robbie Maddison is a professional stuntman and rider, and he actually uses a special dirt bike to get to ride the waves like this.
76 Not Flinching
Kobe Bryant was an excellent basketball player, and this picture proves once again his superiority over other players.
Here, Matt Barnes had no intention of throwing the ball in Bryant’s face, he just wanted to scare him. But Bryant didn’t even flinch the slightest bit.
77 Skull Crushing
This fighter has a huge tattoo of a skull on his back, and it allowed the taking of this rather funny picture.
As his opponent kicks him in the side, you can see his skin moving under the force of the blow, giving the impression that the skull is being crushed.
Time can be long during a basketball game when a player is not on the court.
That’s maybe why Lebron James was so bored that he picked his nose! Unfortunately for him, he was caught red-handed.
79 Blinding Ponytail
If there is one thing that is very important when playing tennis, it is to never take your eyes off the ball.
This player, however, made such a big swing at the ball that her ponytail flew in front of her eyes, completely blocking her view.
80 Souvenir Ball
Who hasn’t wished in their heart to catch a ball in the stands at a baseball game? Well, this man got that chance!
He managed to catch the ball like it was nothing while holding his baby in his other arm. The problem was that the ball was not a foul one, and the player was going to catch it… oops!
81 Squinting Eyes
But what position is this ping-pong player in? At real speed, it probably wasn’t that strange, but like this, in picture, it’s very funny!
And the ball is so close to his face that his eyes are squinting inwards! How is he going to hit that ball?
82 Double Head Shot
In soccer, a player hitting the ball with his head is a very common occurrence. However, it is more rare that two players do it at the same time!
Fortunately, both women appear to have only hit the ball with their heads. Otherwise, it would have hurt like hell!
83 Little Trip Over
This picture was taken during the Tour de France. We have a little trouble explaining to ourselves what this jogger is doing here, since it is a cycling competition.
He doesn’t seem friendly towards the cyclist he is chasing, however, but a man quickly took care of preventing him from chasing the cyclist further by tripping him over.
84 Raw Strength
Shot put is not an easy sport. After all, it takes a lot of strength to put a 7.26kg metal ball far enough!
And definitely, there is nothing more effective to awaken our raw strength than doing a funny face like this athlete!
85 Caught By The Dread
Sometimes having long hair can backfire when you are a football player.
While in possession of the ball, this player got caught by a dread by another player, stopping his run. Ouch!
86 Water Mirror
Wakeboarding is a very enjoyable sport for anyone who can manage to stay up. But it’s still a very physically demanding sport.
Sean Murray is a professional wakeboarder, and this picture of him almost lying horizontally on the water, looking at his perfect reflection in the water, is really impressive!
87 Bullseye Shot
In general, the goal in golf is to hit the ball as close to the hole as possible.
Tiger Woods seems to realize in this photo that he hit it straight at the camera instead. He may not get a hole-in-one, but from the look of the ball’s trajectory, it will be a bullseye into the camera!
88 Hands Up
For a gymnast, this is an absolutely normal position. Indeed, all gymnasts raise their arms in the air like this before starting their routine.
Usually we see this at real speed, so we don’t notice how strange the position actually is, with the shoulders squashing the lower face like this!
89 My Precious!
Gymnastics is a very demanding sport. Indeed, it is often the whole body that must work in order to perform the movements.
Clearly, this gymnast was working very hard while doing her reverse split, and it shows in her face. Don’t you think she looks at her ball like Gollum looks at the ring in Lord of the Rings?
90 Punching A Player
This man definitely takes for the other team. We only have to look at the color of his jersey to know it.
However, isn’t punching a player in the face to prevent him from catching the ball gratuitous violence, but above all, cheating?
91 Head Stand
Maybe we’re wrong, but this baseball player is supposed to catch the ball and throw it to another base, right?
How did he get into that position? This is not the time to practice your head stands!
92 Bobby No Legs
But what kind of strange Photoshop is this? Why erase the legs of this player and place him on the ground?
Well, Bobby Martin, nicknamed Bobby No Legs, was actually a defensive lineman for Dayton’s Colonel White High School varsity team. He has no legs or hips. He is 3 feet tall and runs with his arms!
93 That Is Victory
There’s no doubt about it, it was quite a victory cry from Serena Williams!
She had just scored a point against Maria Sharapova in the 2007 Australian Open final, and she was ready for the rest of the battle.
94 Nice Catch
It was the football receiver Randy Moss who managed to catch the ball with his fingertips during a match Vikings vs. Steelers, in 2001.
Are we the only ones who think his jump is worthy of a great ballerina?
95 Missing Teeth
Boxing is an unforgiving sport. After all, it involves getting hit!
Leon Spinks is known for, among other things, the big hole in his mouth. He lost his two central incisors as a teenager during a boxing match in the Marines. He then, he lost his two lateral incisors in 1981.
96 432 Pounds Hit
Lifting heavy weights is not easy, and it can be dangerous. German Olympic weightlifting champion Matthias Steiner got a good scare at the 2012 London Olympics.
While trying to lift a 432-pound barbell, he lost his balance, and the barbell fell on his neck. Fortunately, there was more fear than harm!
97 Dropping The Gymnast
This gymnast looks absolutely terrified as she is in the air, obviously falling.
Ironically, she wasn’t even doing a routine at the time. It was the late, tall basketball player Manute Bol who was carrying her because she was injured, but he dropped her because of slippy hands.
98 Who’s Who?
You have to look at this picture twice before you realize that it is not the woman who wears pants and the man who wears the dress!
Their positions and their black outfits make it very difficult to differentiate their bodies!
99 Unusual Impact
The glass around the skating rink is very strong. They can withstand powerful blows without any problem.
So, imagine how fast this hockey player had to go to get through that glass. Even the player on the ice next to him couldn’t believe it!
Forget about basketball, this sport is now a thing of the past. Welcome balletball instead! It’s similar, but the players have to move by doing Grande Jeté.
But no kidding, you have to admit that this New York Knicks player looks like he just stepped out of a ballet show while shooting at the basket!
101 Smacked By The Hurdle
Hurdles is not an easy discipline. Not only do you have to run very fast, but you also have to be able to jump over the hurdles without touching them and losing too much speed.
Unfortunately for this athlete, the hurdle got the better of him, and instead of jumping over it, he got smacked in the face.
102 Shady Team
This Generals player had the ball, but his Harlem Globetrotters opponent decided to foil him in a very strange way. Indeed, he pulled down his shorts, so the player dropped the ball in surprise.
Is this really legal? We feel that the Harlem Globetrotters are not playing fair. Just look at the player in the background with a balaclava to understand that this team is shady!
103 Intimate Players
This soccer player will do anything to keep possession of the ball, but his opponent is also willing to do anything to steal it from him.
Do they realize the position they are in? We hope the player on the ground didn’t get up too quickly under the Compass player!
104 In Awe
Watching cheerleaders perform during a game, and especially at halftime, is always impressive.
This man on the left, however, seems far too swooning over these three cheerleaders jumping in sync in front of the stands!
105 Great Swing
The harder and farther a soccer player wants to hit the ball, the greater the swing.
The opposing player should have known better than to get behind him at this moment. However, he seemed more surprised than anything else!
106 Sweet Kiss
Who said rugby is a rough sport? On the contrary, it seems to be a sport where players love each other very much!
The player in blue definitely wanted to steal the ball held by the player in red. Was that kiss on the cheek an accident, or was it actually a trick to throw off his opponent?
107 Horrifying Moment
We don’t know exactly what is happening on the field in front of these two soccer players, but the player in red looks completely horrified!
Clearly, this player is having one of the worst moments of his life. Has he just realized that his team is sure to lose the game?
108 Oldest Player
The average length of a basketball career is 4.8 years, which means that a player generally retires from the NBA between the ages of 35 and 39.
This player is definitely the oldest ever! Really, this white-haired man’s head is perfectly placed to look like this player is an elderly!
109 Riding The Opponent
Judo is a martial art that requires strategy and concentration.
Obviously, this opponent must not have been very good because the judoka in blue has time to sit on his back, as if he were on horseback, while waving to the crowd with his hands.
110 Double Punch
It was a tough game for this hockey player. Not only does he get tackled by a player from the opposing team, but he also gets punched in the crotch!
This ad showing a woman boxing couldn’t be better placed in the circumstance!
111 Partner Or Lover?
This photo is the very image of diversity and acceptance. It shows both a Muslim volleyball player who shows almost no skin while her opponents wear the traditional bikini.
But the question is, are these two players in the background just volleyball partners? They look very, very close…
112 Headless Gymnast
Many athletes, especially gymnasts, are people whose flexibility never ceases to amaze us.
This gymnast’s back and head are so arched when she jumps that it looks like she has no head!
