Beneath the cut shoulders and Herculean dedication, Olympians are just like us. Or at least, they use the same social networks.
Here are five Olympic athletes who pin to win.
The American swimmer appears to have spent a bit of time packing for the London 2012 Olympics by pinning. In recent weeks, she’s pinned a travel case, comfortable clothes, and a candle for making hotel rooms smell more familiar.
An American swimmer and two-time gold medalist, Franklin’s boards prove that even professional athletes can indulge in desserts every now and then. From chocolate-covered bananas to chocolate raspberries to a s’mores cookies, the 17-year-old Franklin’s board betrays quite the sweet tooth.
The 35-year-old American beach volleyball player and two-time gold medalist is the only one on the list who has dedicated an entire board to the Games—Olympics Fun. Check out her boards for mid-game action shots and messages to her sponsors.
5) Sarah Robles
Called the strongest woman in the U.S., the 24-year-old American weightlifter has just one pinboard, fittingly titled Tough Girls. Robles, who has recently gotten media attention for her difficulty getting sponsors since she doesn’t fit into a conventional body type, pins inspirational messages about loving your shape and how everyone can be beautiful.
