But the interview took a sharp turn when Hamilton said that menstruating women are most likely to be attacked by a shark. The biggest, most common reason to be bitten is a woman with her period, which people dont even think about that, the surfer said. Obviously, if a woman has her period, then theres a certain amount of blood in the water. Hamilton may be one of the most experienced athletes in the ocean with slightly more knowledge about sharks than the average person, but its not clear where hes getting his information on womens menstrual cycles. Women lose on average 35 to 50 milliliters (about to 1.2 to 1.7 fluid ounces) of blood during the menstruation cycle, research shows . Thats not enough to draw in sharks, according to Chris Lowe, a shark researcher at Cal State University of Long Beach.

The sketch then ended with the Trump impersonator telling Bannon to pull over, as he wanted to get another taco bowl. Of course, comparing Trump to Simpson is a giant leap. Just earlier this month , the new book, Trump Revealed , reported that Trump doesnt work out, for example, as he believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. Despite his later transgressions, Simpson is still widely believed to be one of the greatest athletes of all time ... so ... obviously a very different person than Trump. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Its a story that sprang from that difficulty, but its very much set in the here and now, and just as relevant in 2017, he said, pointing to the fact that very few professional athletes have come out as LGBTQ. So far, the critics seem to agree. The Irish Film Review applauded Handsome Devil for delivering a far more satisfying examination of masculinity than before, while Vanity Fair called it perky and entertaining after its 2016 Toronto International Film Festival debut. The Guardian compared it favorably to Moonlight, which won the Oscar for Best Picture in February. Despite tackling teen bullying, homophobia and other serious themes, Handsome Devil concludes on an upbeat note for both Ned and Conor ― a fact of which Butler is particularly proud.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will continue playing for "many years", the surgeon who operated on the 35-year-old Manchester United striker's knee has said. Swede Ibrahimovic underwent surgery last week in the United States after suffering major knee ligament damage. "Fixed, done and stronger", he declared after the operation carried out by Hong Kong-born Freddie Fu and Volker Musahl. And Fu, in an interview with Thursday's South China Morning Post, gave his football A-list patient a glowing assessment. "He's so healthy, so strong, biologically, bone morphology, everything, is absolutely very healthy. "He can still play for many years." Fu, chairman of the department of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre, has carried out over 20,000 knee operations. But he said Ibrahimovic was "one of the top athletes I've ever touched, he is in superb shape.

This article originally appeared on Outsports . Felipe Oliveira, a mens volleyball player for Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, is typical of a type of gay athlete we are seeing more and more comfortably out on campus and on his team but not yet ready to come out publicly. That changed this week as part of a class project. Oliveira, a sophomore, is taking a Gay, Lesbian and Transgender Studies class, the first offered by the Catholic university, which competes athletically in the NAIA. The students in the class were assigned a project with the task of doing something to help the LGBT community. With the help of classmates and fellow athletes Indira Colón (track and field), Scott Fabian (volleyball) and Bernabe Montes (soccer) all who identify as straight Oliveira decided to come out publicly to show that LGBT athletes are accepted on campus.

The founder and director of a soccer club in Portland, Oregon came out to his players as transgender this week and the moving moment was captured and uploaded to YouTube in a beautiful video titled Authenticity. Kaig Lightner, 37, who heads up Portland Community Football Club, told his players he decided to share his identity with them not only because he felt like he needed to, but because the sporting world has a number of different ways of negatively regulating the gender of athletes. Some of you may or may not know this, but I am transgender, Lightner says in the video. What that means is that I was born a girl, and that I grew up playing soccer as a girl. And thats not something I share with players or people in the sports world very often because its not an easy thing. We have a lot of rules in sports about how boys play and how girls play.
