These pictures were taken at just the right moment (or just the wrong moment, depending on which way you look at it)
Athletes are some of the most admired people on earth. From their posters decorating a child’s bedroom, to older people wanting to take a picture with them: they are often seen as idols. This is, of course, because they often show us the amazing things the human body is capable of. Sometimes they even seem to go further than what should be humanly possible.
Today, we’ll show you that while we often seem to think they are, athletes aren’t perfect. We’ve collected some of the funniest sports bloopers to have ever happened. We’re so glad people were able to capture these moments on camera, because they had us rolling on the floor laughing! Our personal favorite is #23. Which one do you think is the absolute funniest blooper of them all?
We hope you enjoy these as much as we did.
“Hey there, gorgeous!”
This wakeboarder was on his way to break a world record, when he suddenly realized he wasn’t alone. The water below him acted like a mirror, showing a very handsome young man.
As you can see, he didn’t hesitate to get closer to his mirror image. It reminds us a bit of the famous painting of Narcissus, falling in love with himself. Anyway, it makes for a funny picture!
Some angles just don’t look very flattering. This athlete had just finished pole vaulting and hit the mat, when a photographer decided to capture the moment.
Unfortunately for the athlete, it didn’t make for a very flattering image. We’re sure there were better pictures of her in action, leaping over the high bar and maybe even setting a record!
