The 'What Makes an Olympic Body' Infographic Takes on Team BMI

The ‘What Makes an Olympic Body’ infographic speculates on the overall BMI, weight and height of the average team member in each sport during the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The graphic presents a variety of different options for those looking to identify with an Olympic sport.

The fascinating comparison between LeBron James’ 6’8” and 249-pound frame versus Gabby Douglas’ 4’11” and 90-pound frame is an interesting perspective between what it takes to succeed in basketball versus gymnastics. The BMI is an interesting addition to this graphic as it measures what ratio your body should be to its fat content in order to be considered healthy. However, as Olympic athletes are in such an elite crowd of fat-to-muscle ratio, while understanding the BMI in comparison to them is interesting, it does not necessarily mean that everyone should be aiming to hit their BMI range.
