A pole vaulting champion has run stark naked through the streets of France’s capital to highlight his need for sponsorship. Romain Mesnil took his pole with him for the sprint, which took in Paris’s top tourist spots including Montmartre and the Pont des Arts across the River Seine. In his video, which has been posted on the internet (WATCH IT BELOW) and uses a black square to cover his modesty, Mesnil runs as though he is about to vault the popular attractions. Reuters reports that the athlete took the usual promotional step after Nike failed to renew his sponsorship deal, despite a silver medal win at the 2007 Athletics World Championships in Osaka.
We’ve had a lot of naked male streakers lately, but this is the first naked female streaker we can remember in quite a while . . . and she seems to be enjoying herself in the picture at right. Looks like she could use some time in the tanning booth, but otherwise she’s not bad looking.
This London Irish girl was definitely ‘bottom’ of the league after giving rugby fans an eyeful on Sunday. The cheeky streaker caused a stir as she dashed across the pitch during the club’s 32-27 win against Northampton at Madejski Stadium. With only a green jacket to keep her warm, the naked entertainer pranced around the field with gleeful abandon much to the amusement of the players on both sides.
Could this be the BadJock Quote of the Year? “I don’t know what the issue was but the wack-job drove over her.” Keep reading.
No, it didn’t happen on the golf course, but it did happen near the horse shoe pits at the Bulow RV Resort (is that the same as a mobile home park?) in Florida, so we are going to count the driver as a bad jock.
Details on this are still sketchy, but apparently the victim, Lorain Boylan, 56, recently ended her friendship with 41-year-old Linda Pearce (mug shot right) sometime before the two were both watching the action at the park’s horse shoe pit. On St. Patrick’s Day. During the RV park’s annual party.
Yep. You can see where this one is going.
According to witnesses, Pearce publicly announced that she was “going to run this ***** over” (“bitch” seems to be the most obvious choice here, but she may also have said “geezer” or “wench”) and proceeded to do so . . . with her high powered, uh, golf cart. Boylan–who doesn’t appear to have been hurt very badly in the incident–was unable to get out of the way of the speeding golf cart and was allegedly dragged 15 yards (probably very, very slowly) before neighbors stopped the cart and got Boylan to safety then called the cops.
Pearce was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Of course, she claims that Boylan “accidentally” stepped in front of the vehicle despite witnesses who claim she boasted about what she was going to do beforehand. (And here’s the BadJocks Quote of the Year, folks.) According to witness Ron “Are We Live?” Cochran, “I don’t know what the issue was but the wack-job drove over her,” adding, “She said I’m going to run over that blank and proceeded to do it… right in front of everybody.”
Arresting officers claim Pearce was–surprise!–intoxicated when they arrested her. (My FOX Orlando – link includes great video clip)
