She gives Daniel Craig in Casino Royale a run for his money doesn't she?




I think she's impressive, if you like that kind of thing...

And another action shot:



Shall we be naive and pretend that nobody ever possibly uses PEDs?

Or....

Shall we be cynical and embittered and assume that anyone that looks monstrous by our own standards must be using?

Isn't that the name of the game in this thread? Honestly I'm surprised it's been allowed to go on as long as it has.

Luckily while deployed I asked Greg to take me off as a mod since I didn't know how much time I'd have on my hands over here.

There haven't been any UFOs (yet) so it's all cool.





Actually, there might have been - Walsh popped in for a bit.

Hilarious.

Perhaps Reebok should offer up endorsement contracts to the bottom three finishers, then. Someone on the couch thread pointed out the striking differences in appearance between the top 3 and bottom 3.

As I'm not a fitness professional, what I'm wondering is: Is it possible for a trained (not beginner) female competitor to put on that kind of mass in a year's time (and still stay relatively lean) without the use of PEDs? Do women on average produce enough testosterone? For the record, I have no problems with PEDs, and am not for a second suggesting anyone at the Games used them.

And speaking of the Games, were there any reported cases of Rhabdo? Any SLAP tears or ruptured Achilles tendons?

Sakamoto looked completely jacked.

Awesome, really. She looks better than most of the fitness competitors you see on stage.
