Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikOlympics

putin russia anti gay olympics sochi

On one hand, we're very glad to hear that any LGBT visiting/competing/covering the Sochi winter Olympics will be safe from Russia's archaic (yet, rather new) anti-gay laws….

Which, unfortunately, is most of the time.

Here's what Vladimir Putin said specifically, though, in an attempt to put out the fire around his nation's upcoming Olympics:

Filed under: ZportzInspirationHealthInjury

Just because you're a professional motorcycle and snowmobile racer doesn't mean that you can't revolutionize the world of prosthetics with an invention that will game-change the world of artificial joints! No biggie!

LOLz!

Mike Shultz has been in the X Games 11 times, but he has a special place in his heart for the lab! He has NO mechanical training and NO engineering background, but he has more motivation that anyone else! You see, he lost his left leg above the knee in December 2008 snowmobiling accident.

So he invented the Moto Knee and Versa Foot, to create a prosthetic leg for athletes to use in extreme sports — and it's blowing minds!

The 2012 London Olympics Documentary First Is Ready For Eyes!

Filed under: Film FlickersOlympics

Do you watch the Olympics and wish you knew a little bit more about everybody, not just the athletes from the country you're watching the games from??

Us too!

That's why we're pumped to hear that the official documentary of the games, First (above), is ready for all to see! It's an insider look at several rookie Olympians who decided a life of sport-dedication was more important than what normal human beings go through! Highlighted are sports ranging from running to swimming, gymnastics to diving, cycling to BMX, and boxing to judo!

They also cover Olympians from the U.S., China, Kenya, Ireland, South Africa and elsewhere. It'll be in theaters May 30! If you can wait, though, it'll be totally free for you to watch on July 27 on NBC.

We say it's probably better to wait! Ha!
