Is a supermodel like an ordinary model but more prissy/biatchy?

padraig: Not to piss on Michael Phelps' parade, he's a mighty athlete, but it's a bit unfair to praise him for all his medals (compared to other athletes) when he's in a field with so many opportunities to win some, what with all the combinations of distance, style, alone or by team, etc...

A judoka, for instance, could be the best judoka since the beginning of time, but can only go for a medal in his own weight class. Same for all team sports, boxing, etc...


Michael Phelps earned his medals, just like NBAers earn their salaries, whether folks want to believe it or not. It's the Mitt Romney's of the world who receive praise unfairly. Phelps is the elite of the elite, he had to work his way against the creme de la creme de la creme to earn his place. If you're the best damn judoka since the beginning of time in your weight class, then you're the best damn judoka since the beginning of time in your weight class....... and it was not given to you. It was not passively earned. It could not be awarded to you because of who your family is, or because of others wanting to curry favor from you.


Phelps is going through his Ryan Lochte thing............. he's just not being told he can't do it, because of whom he chooses to fk, unlike Ryan Lochte.

Phelps is a great swimmer, no doubt about it.

However, I generally disagree with calling him the "greatest Olympian" because the medal count of swimmers gets so inflated.

Swimming events:
100M Freestyle
100M Backstroke
100M Butterfly
100M Breaststroke

200M Freestyle
200M Backstroke
200M Butterfly
200M Breaststroke

200M of you swimming a combination of those
400M of you swimming a combination of those

200M of you and a team swimming one of those
200M of you and a team swimming a combination of those....

400M ...... etc, etc etc....

Why not just have ONE 100M and ONE 200M race.... called "swim there any way as fast as you can?"

==============

Don't you think that some of those sprinters would have a few more medals if track and field was like swimming? Not a fanboy of Usain Bolt, but how many more medals would Bolt have if the track races were:

100M run
100M walk
100M shuffle
100M skip

200M .... etc.

Um... I think you missed the point.

Phelps is a great athlete, but to say he is the most accomplished Olympian is stretching it. Most decorated, sure. As padraig was pointing out though, that has more to do with the particular sport he competes in. He's a great swimmer... but all he does is swim, and it just happens to be that swimming gives you a shiatload of opportunities for medals compared to say tri-athletes. I'd consider Olympic tri-athletes more accomplished, but there's no way they'll ever be more decorated, because you can't score anything close to the same number of medals if that's your specialty.

2012-08-07 10:15:08 AM
lets see, NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL, MLS, PGA-----hmmm didn't see any professional swimmers league---even if he does get some endorsement deals they won't last too long so they both better take advantage of the fame/popularity now because he won't be back in the news for a long time until he is put on some reality show with a lame title like "Sharks and Minnows"

none the less, she is quite a stunner.


This. If she was a supermodel you would have heard of her along with Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, etc. Either way, she's pretty hot.

Joshudan: That is definitely better than going to Disneyworld.

But not as cool as California Adventures; they have a Cars World!

She'll drop him for Ryan Lochte once he starts dating


I don't think so. Lochte doesn't eat at Chick-Fil-A, or chicks for that matter, if you know what I mean.
 
2012-08-07 10:22:44 AM

Bendal: Let's see; Phelps is the most decorated Olympic athlete in history, is worth millions in endorsements and ad contracts, probably for years to come.

His girlfriend, OTOH, is a "supermodel" no one has ever heard of, and is already talking about a long term relationship and kids.

Can anyone say "gold digger" here?


Oh I think the basic question is can Phelps RECOGNIZE a gold digger?

If all you are good at is running you cannot expect to get the same number of medals as someone that is only good at swimming. And it's because pools are expensive to maintain. So to convince countries to begin training programs and pull together competitive teams they had to throw a few more possible medals their way.

They said the other day that she's a farking waitress. How did she suddenly turn into a supermodel?
 
2012-08-07 10:37:57 AM
If she doesn't date him, someone else will. Why not hang out and go for a ride?

Is she pretty? Yes. Is she a supermodel? I don't know what that is anymore. Are there prettier girls out there? Yes.

Stop the hate folks. He's a superb athlete, by any measure. She's a pretty girl, by any measure.

Good for him and her.

Well it appears her web site is farked.
 
2012-08-07 11:04:40 AM
You know, I've been impressed with Phelps, at least in post-race interviews. He seems to have more personality than he did four years ago. Okay, he's not Dave Chappelle, but he's handling himself well and seems relieved to be retiring and moving on.

As for dating this chick. Whatever. Hope he's happy. He doesn't seem in it for marriage yet. I wouldnt' expect this to last.
 
2012-08-07 11:06:07 AM
Well, good for Phelps, don't know how he pulled it off, he may be an awesome swimmer but he is one goofy looking guy.
 
2012-08-07 11:10:33 AM

HMS_Blinkin: Serious Black: Why would you date a fugly guy like Michael Phelps if you could land any guy you wanted?

Because he's genetically superior.


Hahahahahahahaha. No.

Because he's famous. Fame is the ultimate aphrodisiac to women.

If this were true, you'd expect running races to feature every country imaginable instead seeing the top spots always dominated by the same few countries. At world class levels, it's not enough just to have natural talent. You need world class trainers and training facilities.
 
2012-08-07 12:24:24 PM
Her Instagram account has included many candid shots of Phelps and also a picture of herself pushing a baby stroller with the caption "Maaaaaybe in 5-10 years."

....hhhhmmmmmmmmmmm thanks but no thanks... she may be hot but I sense some crazee in this one!
For Phelps sake I hope he sees it too!

that's the kind of gal that will marry you, then go batshiat crazee on you a yr or two later and milked you off of at least 90% of everything you've even owned and earned and then will still get 50% of future earnings for child/spousal support.

Be careful Phelps..be reeaall careful with this one!

You are completely discounting the fact that the chief reason Phelps has so many medals is that this is his third Olympics. He's 27 and has dominated the sport since he was 15. That is Michael Jordan level of awesome. Note that Phelps doesn't even compete in any backstroke or breaststroke events.

If winning multiple gold medals in swimming over the course of multiple Olympics is so easy then we should expect this to be a regular occurrence.

People can split hairs as to if he is the definitive single greatest Olympian, but there is no question he is the greatest swimmer ever to compete in the games. He is the Michael Jordan or Wayne Gretzky of swimming.

Oh and I'd hit it.

Persnickety: If this were true, you'd expect running races to feature every country imaginable instead seeing the top spots always dominated by the same few countries. At world class levels, it's not enough just to have natural talent. You need world class trainers and training facilities.


I don't think you're contradicting each other.

Swimmers swim all strokes in training and then get lots of chances to win medals in competitions. That's why individual swimmers tend to win lots of medals.

Swimming also requires extremely expensive training facilities; a 50m pool doesn't come cheap, so competitive swimmers tend to come only from western europe, north america and Australia.

The latter shows another effect. Sometimes countries pump vast amounts of money into particular sports in an attempt to win lots of medals and boost national morale. See: Bulgarian wrestlers, East German throwers, Australian swimmers and, at the moment, British cyclists.

You make his point. Phelps (like Thorpe, and Spitz, and ...) manages to win lots of medals by doing just two things many times with minor variations. No other Olympic discipline, with the possible exception of cycling, allows one athlete to compete in so many events doing essentially the same thing.

I think wins in the multi-discipline events, like pentathlons and decathlons, are much more impressive since they demonstrate a true range of talent.
 
2012-08-07 01:41:29 PM

True Value: If winning multiple gold medals in swimming over the course of multiple Olympics is so easy then we should expect this to be a regular occurrence.


He's lasted longer than many swimmers, but winning multiple medals in swimming at a single Olympics is absolutely routine. Oh, and both Spitz and Thorpe won multiple golds at multiple Olympics.

So do what Clara Hughes does and double-major. I wanna see Phelps on skates.

Also he pretty much has to date a supermodel. It's his only chance of having kids that won't turn their pediatrician to stone with a single gaze.
