Synchronized swimming is a delight to watch, as we get to see multiple swimmers moving their bodies in sync with the water. This photo has been taken such cleverly that it makes you think that you are looking at one woman with a long body, with her head out from one side and her legs out from the other, but in reality, these are two women, one is diving, and the other one is coming up. So all of you who thought that this woman is a mermaid, please learn something about synchronized swimming. Want to have a look at a few more of such photos? Keep reading!

Gymnastics is said to be on top of the list of grames which have athletes with the most flexibility, the game which stands on second place has to be figure skating as athletes of that game portray a great show of flexibility. Here is a picture of a figure skater bending her whole body in a backward position. What makes this picture more amazing is that even though this athlete is in such a critical position, the smile on her face is still there which reflects her confidence and sportsmanship and we also get to see more than we should.

Many people think of acrobatics as an easy sport, but it is a lot harder than what it looks. Look at these three acrobats, who are giving all their strength to maintain such a difficult pose. The one on the bottom looks like she has it easy but she is actually baring the weight of the other two along with maintaining her balance, the one in the middle has got the support of the girl below her, and she is holding one girl on top of her, and the third on top is trying to balance herself in such a problematic pose on just the foot of the acrobat below her. One word for these women, BRAVO!

You know how sometimes you speak to your screen because you want to send a message to the person in it, well this picture is one of those moments where you would get the urge of telling this blonde woman to duck before the ball hits her in the head. If you don’t understand what we are saying, then look at the ball on the left. This picture is a lesson for all selfie lovers to never take an image on a baseball park with your face against the field. We wonder if she saved herself from the ball or if it hit her then how badly did she get hurt.

You must have come across this picture, as it went viral last year. The man with great reflexes in this picture is Shaun Cunningham, and the little boy next to him is his oblivious son, Shawn’s won the best dad title by using his great parental reflexes when the baseball bat was about to hit his son. Guess the little boy was so much busy on the phone that he didn’t see whats coming his way, lucky for him his dad saved him from getting his face smashed.

While most of the girls love to have long hair, it can be a problem when it comes to heavy weight lifting. Long hair surely is a blessing for many women but this woman in the picture; they are a burden. While this athlete is lifting a 200lb barbell, she has got her whole hair covering her face making it hard for her to see. That is why it is recommended to tie your hair during sports. Otherwise one can face situations like these.

The next picture that we have on the list is of a USA swimmer Tyler Clary, which was captured back in 2012 when he was participating in the Olympics for Gold men’s backstroke. The image was clicked right when Tyler was breaking the surface of the water, the timings of the photographer and the movement of the swimmer’s face turned the picture into something which looks more like J.K Rowling’s Voldemort rather than an athlete. Its not the pictures that are special but the moments that they are clicked in which is what makes them special.

Most people underestimate what a difficult sports Shot Put is, imagine spinning a heavy ball of iron several times and then aiming it in the right direction. Sounds hard, doesn’t it? Although this man in the picture is making us laugh more than think about the difficulty he is going through at the moment. The image must have been clicked right when he was about to throw the ball; you can also see the sweat in the air which is obvious to come with all the tension. We are truly impressed by the skills of the photographer who clicked this picture at the perfect moment.

Another photograph that we have on this list is deadly. Wrestling can be a pretty violent sport. The way we see athletes beating each other in the ring, makes them look like they have been enemies forever. Although in reality many athletes who give each other a tough time in the ring, are good friends outside of it. Here is a picture which was taken at a match between Canada and Japan, in the image you can see the Japanese player biting of the Canadian player’s fingers, but the blood in his mouth shows that he has been beaten by Canada first.

Like we said earlier gymnastics is number one sport with the most flexible athletes in the world. This is a picture of a famous gymnast Katherine Coronel, who is from Venezuela and is said to have an extremely flexible body. This picture speaks in her favor, where we can see her moving her bending her whole body in such a way that her head is not even visible. It looks like the gymnast doesn’t even have a head, but that’s just because of her great flexibility. We hope that you are liking the skills of the photographers and we are not done yet so keep reading!

When you have your whole concentration in one place, its difficult to focus on things happening around you. Like this guy who has got so much focus in his game that he is unaware of the ball coming right into his face. We would blame the pitcher here who threw the ball in this player’s direction who was facing the other way. Though the photographer of this picture did a great job whoever this athlete is, he must have got hurt real bad and we really hope that he is okay.

It looks like these two soccer players are showing off their dance moves on the football field. What these players of opponent teams are doing is trying to hit the ball to score a goal. But the photographer captured this picture at a moment where they both look like two fellows doing jumping jacks in the air and that makes a very serious picture funny. Photographs have the ability of showing stuff that is not a part of the reality  and giving pictures a whole new meaning but we must say that the person who took this photo did a very good job.

Whenever the beach ball comes up during the summer Olympics, most of us enjoy the game and think about how fun it looks. After looking at this picture, you might not believe the same way again. Here is a beach volleyball player who is about to get hit in the face by the ball which is coming right in her direction. You can see her frightened expressions because she knows she can’t save herself now. Whoever took this picture should be given a pat on the shoulder for capturing an image at such perfect timing.

It is important to have someone as your partner who you can rely on, not like this person who let her partner fall directly into ice. Good that figure skaters are flexible otherwise this girl would have had her fractures in her body because of the way it has twisted. Right now she must only be hurting in the face because she fell directly on the ice, and ice hurts bad. Also, it looks like the guy is about to fall as well and most probably on the woman, cause her even more injury. Have a look at a few more.

The former First Lady, proved herself to be remarkable at almost everything we saw her doing, but it looks like sports is one thing isn’t very good at. This picture was taken when Michelle Obama joined the USA tennis team while they had their practices. Instead of throwing the ball towards the opponent Michelle seems to be throwing it in her face, lucky for her the tennis ball isn’t as hard as a baseball, otherwise, the First lady would have ended up in an emergency room with a swollen face. On a side note, the photo was captured on the perfect moment.

We can’t say what this tennis player is doing at this moment, because when you look at her right hand, you can tell she is playing tennis, but when you look at her left hand, you may think she is dancing. We’ll assume she was trying to do both things at one time. We don’t know whether she won or lost the game that day, but we are quite sure she lost this point. What we are  wondering is that what was on her mind at that moment when the photo was clicked because we really cant judge anything from the picture. Whatever the case is, we must say that the photographer captured a perfectly timed photo.

This picture was taken a second before these two hockey players crashed into each other and then in the ground, whoever took this photo made it memorable for both of them. The player in front is giving her best to save the ball from the opponent, but sadly she knows that she is about to hit the ground. Her game might be on her mind at that time, but from her face, it looks like she is about to throw up.

When a person opts for bull riding as their profession of sports, then they are well aware of the consequences the game brings with itself. Injuries and concussions are a common thing one can expect when being a bull rider. Although no one can know how much it hurts getting bucked off unless you have been in that situation at least once. Here is a picture of a bull rider who had just gotten hit by the bull, the photographer has clicked the picture at such perfect moment that you can see the man still in the air. His expressions though tell this isn’t the first time this is happening to him.

As the list goes on, the pictures keep on getting better. The look on this gymnast’s face who is in the photo below makes this a million dollar picture; it is taken on such perfect timings because you can see the intensity of the game on the athlete’s face. She is not sure whether she is going to make it to the gym horse or if she is going to fly over it, her eyes tell that she is hoping to make it over it. We wish we can see the pictures of what happened later because we are cheering for this beautiful gymnast.

Sometimes that casual time pass turns into a comedy scene when athletes are caught on camera with faces like this one in the picture.

Out of all the UFC pictures we have seen, this one has to be one of the most perfectly timed. Right when one player hit the other one with a kick in his pelvis, the photographer clicked his camera and captured this image. The way the skin, of the fighter who got kicked, is moving back it looks like we are watching a slow-motion video. We wonder how bad this kick would have hurt and we also appreciate the photographer for such a photo because not every person is able to take such a well-timed photograph.

The photo that you can see below is a picture of Robbie Maddison, who is a famous surfer, a professional stuntman, and great motorbiker. Robbie wanted to merge all his passions into one image, and we have to say that he did a marvelous job in doing so. This picture of him motorbiking along with a surfing board shows what courage this guy has. It is said that he practiced two years for this picture until he got it right. The scene has been created by placing skis underneath the water. Keep reading because we have a few more photos for you.

The photo that you can see below couldn’t have been better and we are yet again impressed by the skills of the photographer because that is what make the picture so hilarious. We all are aware of the American football game, rugby is the British version of the same game, but the players are less padded and secured. The game always ends up in most players getting bad injuries, the worse part of the game is when the players climb on top of each other to get the ball. This picture here explains what we are saying, this one player who is trying to take his head out it either trying to look funny or is just trying to catch a breath.

Some best-time photos here are to applaud for, and some are to laugh your lungs out. This one is the latter one, look at this basketball player’s expressions, he is screaming like a 13-year-old girl whose phone dropped in the toilet. We are not sure if he is giving this reaction because he missed the ball or he is just scared of the other player standing behind him. What so ever this picture is one hilarious image to look at. What we are wondering is whether the guy who was behind the camera took the picture clicked it by accident or was he skilled enough ti know when to take the shot.

This picture captures two great boxers Glen Johnson and Lucian Bute; this was taken during a middleweight title match. You can see Lucian putting all his force into this punch he is hitting on Glen’s face, the picture has been taken remarkable that it even shows the skin on Glen’s head moving back and the pain on his face. You can also see the sweat on their bodies which tell how much pressure these both are putting into the match. The photo depicts the intensity of the moment when both the players were so caught in the moment that they forgot the world around them.

Wake boarding is an incredibly cool sport, and you can see many amazing pictures of that game, but this one has to be one of the best as this man’s reflection in the crystal clear see it look like another man is standing below him. The stunt this guy is pulling off is difficult to do as it’s not so easy to get this close to the water, but he managed to do such a fantastic job, and the photographer was lucky enough to get it on the camera at the right time. The list hasn’t ended yet so keep reading because we have a few more for you.

This moment in the picture was one of the most talked about thing about the 1997 basketball game at the United Center in Illinois. The famous basketball player Dennis Rodman gave his best at the court by taking a dive which seems impossible. He jumped to grab the basketball, and his entire body was up in the air parallel to the ground. Luckily he got the ball and then fell to the ground, but this move of his made his fans go crazy. The photographer who took this picture should have been given the award for the best-timed photographer.

This is a picture of two famous Russian figure skaters Fiona Zaldua and Dmitry Sukhanov. The post they are doing here does not just look impossible but is extremely difficult to do. Dmitry is using all his strength to hold Fiona only by her ankle while they both skate on the ice. Looking at this picture that makes us believe how good these two athletes are and we must say that we are in a state of awe.
