She must be a lot of fun at parties.

This is the best video of an Olympic gold medalist swimmer swimming with a glass of chocolate milk on her head and not spilling any that you'll see all day.

Actually?  That's pretty impressive head control.

Stud Gerbil: She must be a lot of fun at parties.


Well, she's won five Olympic gold medals and currently holds three major swimming world records, so yes, I would imagine she'd be fun to talk to at a party. It's not like this is a random person who exclusively practices milk-on-head swimming.

Should I ever run into her at a party, I'd challenge her to a bong-ripping competition. I'd expect to lose, given her lung capacity. She's probably trained with Phelps.

Oh a snorkel. I was thinking she'd have to do a breaststroke

Worldclass athletes tend to be pretty boring. They're obsessive-compulsive; they're addicted to one thing and that one thing just happens to be a global event that earns them lots of fame and money, and they have few interests or desires outside of it.

That's just the way they're wired.

Fair point. It would probably be fun for me, getting to probe someone for anecdotes on pressure and performance, or what it was like living in the Olympic Village as a teenager. But she may not end up being great with conversation for the reasons you mentioned.

I made my original post because I thought it was ridiculous that someone would use the "bet they're fun at parties" line on a famous athlete.

Let's see the Marble League try this.

That's just the way they're trained.
