Olympian says he will work out naked until he finds apparel sponsor

US Olympic runner Nick Symmonds has a tremendous sense of humor. What he does not have, however, is an apparel sponsor. The Winter Games in Sochi begin in just over a month, and Symmonds is still searching for some financial assistance. Until he finds it, he will have to alter his training routine. On Wednesday, […]

Team USA must come out and play in 2014 Olympics

With their laws, their tear gas, their bully pulpits, and angry fists, Russia has demanded silence of its homosexuals –a populace forcibly placed inside the ghetto of second class citizenry. With an iron brand, they’ve been marked with the scarlet “O” as obscene. They’ve been sequestered from their children. And when they protest or love in public, the same message is being...

Nick Symmonds > Ryan Lochte

Nick Symmonds: Bro.I have a ton of respect for America’s Olympic athletes, from the young ladies of the Fierce 5 to the members of the Men’s Basketball Team (yes, even LeBron James) and even for a stuttering human meatloaf like Ryan Lochte. But it’s time for Lochte to step his game up, because there’s a new, bolder bro in town and his name is Nick Symmonds.While Lochte...

U.S. Olympian Nick Symmonds Breaks American Record in Beer Mile, Chugging Beers Before Each Lap (Video)

Nick Symmonds set an American record in the mile on Tuesday with a time of 5:19. For those of you thinking that 5:19 isn't very fast for an American record, there was a caveat: Symmonds' race was a beer mile. A beer mile is just like a regular mile, with the stipulation that each runner has to consume one 12 oz. can of beer before every lap. There are several other unofficial...

U.S. Olympic runner Nick Symmonds nearly sets record in the beer mile (Video)

Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames. U.S. Olympic runner Nick Symmonds has never won an Olympic medal in his young career, but that could all change if the beer mile becomes an official Olympic event before 2016. Symmonds recently ran the beer mile in an impressive 5:19. Many of you could probably run a mile in 5:19, but could you do it while chugging four beers along...

Olympian tries to break US Beer Mile record

Olympian Nick Symmonds may have finished a mere fifth in the 800M during the 2012 London Olympics, yet he has redeemed himself completely by downing a beer before running each of the four laps required to complete a mile in record time. If he threw up, his punishment was to run another lap. Symmonds finished his mile (and chugging of 4 beers) in a very impressive 5 minutes and 19...
