It is impossible to remain photogenic while playing sports, especially if you do it professionally. Sports photographers have their own collection of funny pictures, looking at which it is impossible to believe that they are not photoshopped. Here are our 18 favorite pics!
Offensive Lineman Who Is Invisible
Tanner Coleman, an offensive lineman for Evangel Christian Academy in Shreveport, Louisiana, lost his helmet while shielding his quarterback during a game. This bizarre snapshot, which appears to have been photoshopped, was taken by a Dallas Morning News photographer, but it was just perfectly timed. On the other hand, this next speedster demonstrated that you can run at full speed yet appear photogenic.
I Lost My Balance
This unfortunate soccer player was stomped on the pitch by another player. Fortunately, the competitor was not gravely injured, and camera footage shows this incident happening in the flash of an eye before the player triumphantly returned her feet.
The Goalkeeper’s Revenge
This goalie appears to be boldly and powerfully flinging a ball into the goal he should guard! Fortunately, this was not the case, but even the other team’s player was taken aback by what was happening!
A Water Walk
While in the water, synchronized swimmers are educated to have total control over their bodies, but are they genuinely learning to float on their surface? There could not be a more apt depiction of the sport’s existence!
The Speedster With A Smile
Usain Bolt competed in the 100-meter sprint at the 2016 Summer Olympics. He thought that halfway through the race, he’d have plenty of time to glance at a photographer and dazzle the camera with his dazzling million-watt smile. But, with a golf ball in his face, will this next person maintain his photogenic demeanor?
He Was Balled In The Nose
This Diamondbacks player went all in for the team literally. He was supposed to catch the ball, but he misjudged. As a result, he ended up with an unintentional nose job.
Dolphins Come To Life
The portrayal of these two synchronized swimmers is highly amusing. The front swimmer appears to have the most flexible spine in the sport, while the backswimmer has no idea she’s contributing her legs to this fantastic stance.
Dad Obstructed The Batter’s Path
During the Atlanta Braves-Pittsburgh Pirates spring training game in 2016, an errant bat soared directly towards Shaun Cunningham’s son. But this great parent deflected the bat in a moment before it altered his son’s face.
Synchronized Swimmers Get Comfortable
We’re not sure whether synchronized water dancers are accustomed to sticking their fingers inside their teammates’ mouths. But these two are entirely in sync and eager to triumph. As a result, if one pushes her finger out, the other will react fast. Whatever helps them win, right?
Coach Takes A Fan-Out
An assistant coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes discovered an inebriated fan racing across the field during a game. The coach, who had one arm around the young man’s neck and tackled him to the ground, was no match. But at least he didn’t take a direct strike to the chest.
A Bat Develops An Unusual Curve
Bats aren’t as dependable as they appear. When Mark McGwire won his first World Series with the Oakland Athletics’, he learned this lesson. As the bat made contact with the ball, it appeared to bend abnormally.
Swimmer Caught In A Bubble
A webcam captured Tyler Clary of the United States Swim Team seconds before his corpse surfaced from the water. Clary appeared to be running from an unusually sticky translucent ooze at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
MMA Fighter Is Skull Kicked
The MMA fighter, dressed in white shorts, struck his opponent in the ribs with a fast strike. The result produced a horrible rippling effect across the other fighter’s back, making his skull tattoo look like a proper headshot.
Soccer Players Appear Terrified
Something terrible happened on the soccer pitch, and this magnificent event was filmed in the same way. But we’re not talking about the athlete who simply happened to come across his opponent. Whatever transpired behind the camera had to have been terrifying for these two opponents.
Gymnast Lost Her Head
This photo may appear to show a beheaded gymnast in the middle of a leap, but she just bent her back and neck at such an extreme angle that she seemed to have lost her head when the photographer snapped the shot.
A Bike Enthusiast Goes On A Trip
During the Tour de France, a fan attempted to chase after a cycling racer in this photo. But his attempt to distract the rider backfired when, before he could do so, another supporter placed his foot out to trip him.
A Bull Throws A Man
This photo looks to show a man levitating in mid-air, but in actuality, the bull threw him into the air seconds before severely injuring him. And, considering that the person is upside down, you can practically sense the pain he’ll be in as he crashes to the earth.
Head-On Collision Between Soccer Players
Anyone who claims that women’s soccer isn’t as harsh as men’s soccer hasn’t watched a game. In this shot, two players attempted to control the ball with their heads, but instead smashed their skulls into each other.
