After watching Liam Tancock compete in swimming for Great Britan, and wondering if  Hope Solo was named after the original Star Wars movie (like really who does that), I decided to comb the list of competitors in the 2012 Olympiad for some other hilarious gems. News of team USA’s four set win over Brazil yesterday and a matchup against China today sealed the deal. Too good to be true, Destinee Hooker is our star athlete. Yeah, it’s immature, but I guarantee you’ll be giggling too when Kelsey Titmarsh does the apparatus exchange in rhythmic gymnastics.  

Here are hands down the best names in the Olympics:
1. Yoo Suk Kim, from North Korea: Pole Vault
2. Destinee Hooker, From USA, Volleyball
3. Jack Buttland, Great Britain, Soccer
4. Dong Dong, China, Trampoline
5. Queen Underwood, USA, Women’s boxing
6. Kathryn Fudge, Great Britain, Handball
7. Victoria Poon, Hong Kong, Swimming

9. Fanny Babou, France, Swimming
10. Zbigniew Bartman, Poland, Volleyball
11. Karen Cockburn, Canada, Trampoline
