In case you haven't noticed, I'm all up on my Olympic shit and the latest installment is this massive slideshow of the best Olympians ever for Refinery29.

How many ballpark franks does a girl need to eat before chewing on the end of a Bic pen and shouting "What kind of play was THAT! Get your head in the GAME!" at the television and not looking like a tween with an anger management problem? Seven?

Anyway, Mary Lou Retton is badass, as are the rest. Extra, extra, read all about it.
