One thing that has caught my interest in the past few days is the different physiques of female athletes. It’s fairly obvious now that an Olympic lifter will have a different physique from an Olympic swimmer, but for some reason I never quite caught on.

You can find out your Olympic body match on the BBC website (uses BMI only, so not accurate at all but fun!) I am apparently most like Kenki Sato, a Japanese (male) equestrian Olympian. Hmm.
