You could Google what sports to start late in life to compete in the Olympics, or you could add your voice to the twitter sidelines of the funniest Olympic tweets… much simpler we think.
Arguably the biggest sporting event in the world is upon us – Rio Summer Olympics 2016. So it comes as no surprise that the media is buzzing with the 24/7 coverage of the best athletes in the world right now.
And with all eyes on the world-class athletes competing, it’s not just their physical prowess that has got people talking.
In between the record-breaking dives and gravity-defying somersaults, Twitter has been buzzing with witty observations.
From witty puns to hilarious memes, these are the best tweets – compiled by GoodThingsGuy – that have swept the web over the past couple of weeks.
If we could hand out medals… these would all deserve gold!

A 41 year old gymnast is competing in her 7th Olympics. I just texted my son and offered him $5 to come downstairs and hand me the remote.

Thank goodness the commenter pointed out that the athletes came to the Olympics to win. Cleared up a lot of confusion for me.
