Australian Olympic Committee’s Hypocritical Hopolophobia Revealed

When a brace of Australian Olympic swimmers posted a posing pic featuring firearms their Olympic Committee had a hissy fit. The AOC banned Nick D’Arcy and Kenrick Monk from social media and all post-Olympic festivities. And now it can be revealed [via]: “The national federation organised a so-called team bonding session at a Canberra rifle range in 2007 . . . Five years ago, on a camp that [Australian Olympic swimmer Eamon] Sullivan attended, Olympic gold medallist Libby Trickett was snapped firing a vintage pistol with her teammates watching on [above], apparently in an exercise to build team harmony.”

      wtf kind of face is that? is she scared? is she happy? does she have a muscular/nervous system disease? all of the above?

      1. avatar matt says:

        and is that the same Libby Tricket as in the picture? This photo ( shows a skinny Libby, the one above looks like she weighs as much as me? Did she put on 50-75 lbs between the Olympics and that photo?

        1. avatar matt says:

          I should have said lost 50-75lbs since the TTAG photo is circa ’07 and mine was ’09. she still seems a lil too big to get on a swim team in that ’07 photo.

    Girl holding gun=social empowerment.

    Men holding guns=a terrorist crime against the state.

    Holy Cow, look at those guns. Cool pistol too.

  4. avatar Mike S says:

    Girl firing boomstick -eyepro = girl doing dumb thing

  5. avatar Ralph says:

    They went to a rifle range? OMG, I think I’m going to faint.

  6. avatar DaveM says:

    Make them swim back to Australia as punishment for such an evil deed.

  7. avatar Cameron S. says:

    Shooting old gun = okay
    Holding unloaded new gun = evil

    I’m confused.

      “see, when the US constitution was penned, they thought that Muzzleloaders would be the most advanced guns would ever get, which is why only they should be accessible to the hands of the civilian.” -Any Anti-Gun Politician

      1. avatar IdahoPete says:

        And this “advanced guns not coveered by the 2nd Amendment” approach does not apply to 1st Amendment “freedom of the press” and radio, TV, or the internet. The writers of the Constitution KNEW those would be developed, even back in 1776.

        1. avatar IdahoPete says:

          “covered”. Edit approved.

    “at a Canberra rifle range in 2007 . . . Five years ago”

    But, but, but. . . that was then. This is now!

  9. avatar Jason says:

    Sans eye protection too. Not only afraid of guns but ignorant to boot.

  10. avatar Johnny says:

    Can’t have your role model swimmers handle firearms. The children might get interested and vote us out of power!

    Australian Gun Control. Another great country destroyed by progressivism.

    There was a time I thought of moving there, because I relished a life of greater freedom. Not anymore.

    1. avatar TR says:

      Guys, you really need to stop blaming gun control on progressives. To do so is lazy thinking. Many you would call progressives are your allies.

      1. avatar Swarf says:

        Many of us are also fellow gun enthusiasts.

  12. avatar Danny McBee says:

    Can we have a photo caption contest for this? That girl’s “horse face” is just too rad to ignore.
