French girls are crazy about Camille Lacourt.


So true. A buddy of mine was vacationing in Bali w his wife shortly after London12. They thought they had spent enough to have the resort to themselves, but were surprised by a uniquely handsome couple at the bar, who stuck around to socialize all night and for the next couple days as well. The guy was tall and thin, and smoked Marlboro reds by the pack. Camille of course. The girl, described by my buddys wife as “perfect, angelic,” ended up being Valerie Begue, aka Miss France. Camille is the Beckham/Brady of swimming.


Reds?! The guy smoked reds by the pack? Taking a page out of Popov’s book I see.


imagine how fast they would be if they didn’t smoke. Camille should know better though, it’s 2013 and no small secret that smoking sucks for athletic performance

It’s not the size of the nail, but how hard you’re hittin it. Ryan Lochte is definitely a hard hitter 😉


Maybe if he didn’t smoke he would have won at the olympics. Small details can make a huge difference.
