Tonight the games begin, as the flame will be lit in in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony. The Olympics showcase some of the world’s most talented athletes – people in almost unbelievable physical condition. Watching them compete every two years is awe-inspiring, as their feats of strength, endurance, and agility raise them to the level of superhuman in the eyes of many.

Seriously, hardcore athletes are hardcore. As a reminder of that fact, check out this guy, who gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “power through it.”

[Warning, it’s a bit gross]

On one hand, this is an incredible display of the limits a true athlete can break through if they put everything they have into it.
