    Holy Moly.

    She is 17,6'1" and her dad says they are her "built-in flippers".
    She won 4 gold medals.

    So has any boardsies spotted any Irish girls walking around with a pair of Clown feet that could be potentially Irelands next swimming medalist?

    Pretty sure we have had swimming medalists in the past. And they weren't "clowns" either.

    Ever see the video of some bald dude putting his entire head inside....actually never mind, me neither:o


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,207 ✭✭✭longhalloween


    Maybe her feet are inversely proportional to her cup size.

    Careful now did you not see the sticky to thread on sexism in feedback?

    This was something I noticed about the women swimmers, they all seem to have smaller chests.

    I imagine there is some correlation between their bodies and their success as swimmers as they are, generally, taller than the average girl, have smaller breasts and bigger arms.

    Reminds me in the joke about the three sisters at the dance.


    Punchline goes along the line of two of the sisters telling a gentleman 'if you think our feet are big, you should see the size of our Fanny's'.

    But I'm not saying they all have lovely bottoms. No no no, I'm certainly not saying that!

    What happened to the first sister?

    I'm 6'1" and my feet are size 13 ...I'd call that perfectly proportioned (for balance and all that)

    (lately I've even got small moobs :D)


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,715 ✭✭✭Hande hoche!


    If that's US size it would be around an eleven here.

    is the correct reply teddy.

    Arm span is important, also having a long torso and shorter legs can help.
    Any athlete that engages in cardio is going to be flat chested compared to most. That's just biology. Boobs are mostly fat. These women are made of steel. Sexy sexy steel.

    Size 13 feet?? No flippin way

    Flip Off!!!! :eek:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,540 ✭✭✭Giselle

    Thats in mens sizing. In US womens sizing its actually a 9 - 10 womens.

    So big, yes, but not outsize hilariously stupid out of proportion big, especially since she's so tall.

    Non-story.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,236 ✭✭✭Dr. Kenneth Noisewater


    I think what we should take away from this thread is the fact that, and yes, I know she's only 17 and I'm being a pervert, Missy Franklin has a lovely arse.

    American 13? Cause that's only an UK 10/11 depending on brand. I work in a shoe shop, wouldn't be all that uncommon to have ladies coming in looking for 9s and 10s.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,473 ✭✭✭Wacker The Attacker


    I'd say she has a huge fanny too

    Used to work in the shoe section of a sport shop and I think most of the women's stock only went up to nine. Most women would go for 6s or 7s, iirc.

    Oh yeah, of course. I'm just saying that several times a week we'd have requests for shoes in size 9 and 10. Obviously, not every woman is looking for them :pac:
