    I noticed on the live results page how nice the 71-year-old Japanese rider looked by contrast. Very neat, suit and tie, gentleman. Maybe he just dressed up for his passport photo?

    The mugshots of all the athletes were being discussed in the press awhile ago.

    Here's Michael Phelps: http://www.london2012.com/athlete/ph...chael-1131796/

    And this poor Australian swimmer: http://www.london2012.com/athlete/ashwood-jess-1125360/

    omg william fox pitt weighs nothing!
    I figured with him being so tall (6'6") and fit, he'd be a bit denser than 168#

    I'm watching the reply of dressage right now as I'm watching TV. Does the fact that I'm watching dressage make this horse related? I hope so!

    That said, I think the biggest discrepancy between real life and the mug shots is the gymnast Gabby Douglas. The commentators keep saying that her smile is so bright and warm. He mug shot looks like she's just earned an appearance in juvenile court.

    Michael Phelps looks like he just crawled out of bed!
