Wordless Wednesday


Olympics pole vault Yelna Isinbayeva


Russian pole-vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva does it again - 4.89m for Gold at the Athletics World Championships



UPDATE: This pains me to do but Isinbayeva went out of her way soon after this victory to make what I can only describe as homophobic comments.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion but when that opinion puts other people in danger (which it does in Russia) and when you're someone adored by thousands of people, don't you have a responsibility to think before you speak?
