The vision of the six-time Gold medallist was filmed at his training ground in Kingston, Jamaica and is part of the new campaign by Optus, which also includes a documentary series about Bolt’s life Read more…

Maybe you’re having a rough day at the office. Maybe you’re sitting home alone feeling kinda blue

Well, take heart — at least you didn’t try to lift 855 pounds, then fail, sending massive plates clanging all over a semi-public place. Because that’s exactly what the guy in the video above did

Watch the entire two-and-a-half minute video for the full effect, or just skip ahead to 1:40 to get to the action

Our protagonist here doesn’t seem too bothered by his big fail, though. Maybe that’s actually the lesson in all this: If you’re having a tough day, just brush that stress of your shoulder like 855 pounds of weight and keep things moving Read more…

It’s not quite Donald Trump with a man bun, but Tim Tebow with a ponytail is tough to un-see all the same.

Unlike the Photoshop mischief that gave Trump a fresh ‘do, however, Tebow’s new look is the real deal. Well, at least the photo is real

ESPN’s College GameDay account tweeted a nice photo of the Tebowing namesake and his former University of Florida coach Urban Meyer at Monday night’s college football championship game

There was just one quirk: An optical illusion created by someone standing behind Tebow gives him a flowing ponytail to go with his fashionable mohawk. It’s more like a ponytail-mullet hybrid, really — a dual-threat, if you will Read more…

Alabama giant’s crushing block shows why football is a spectator sport

Block

It’s a medical fact that you’re more likely to get hurt playing football than watching football

Sometimes, however, even being a spectator is painful by association. Case in point: It hurts just to watch this massive block laid down by 6-foot-6, 326-pound Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson in Monday night’s college football championship game

But let’s do that anyway — over and over again

Robinson is a big dude. A very big dude. Did we mention he is 6-foot-6 and 326 pounds? Clemson safety T.J. Green goes 6-foot-2, 190 pounds. That’s pretty large too by normal standards! Read more…

New Balance Partners with Intel, Starts New Digital Technology Division

By Tyler Koslow

When it comes to recent trends within the fashion industry, no one field has been as heavily invested in 3D printing as footwear has. From major companies crafting their newest shoes with 3D printed midsoles to orthotic-driven startups such as Wiivv Wearables and SOLS providing custom-designed and printed insoles, the influence of 3D printing has been spreading across footwear design and manufacturing for quite some time now. The sportswear company New Balance is certainly no stranger to this influence, having announced last November that 3D printed midsoles will be implemented into the design of their newest running shoe.…

You’d expect two players in a competitive tennis match to grind out every point, battling to the end.

Not American tennis player Jack Sock, playing against Australian Lleyton Hewitt during a Hopman Cup match on Tuesday night

Hewitt served, with the umpire calling out on the ball. Sock decided to intervene, saying, “It was in, if you want to challenge it,” to a rather bemused Hewitt.

“Challenge it!” Sock shouted, before Hewitt decided to tell the umpire to check the replay. What a sportsman — and Sock was right too, by the way.
