We are fewer than 3 months away from the London 2012 Summer Olympics! I always enjoy strange athlete names, and the Olympics full of them. Sometimes, you have to wonder if these parents named their kids because they liked the name or with the intention of their child becoming an athlete.

Peregrine Badger- Fencing – Straight out of the Hogwarts yearbook
Colin Cares - Cycling – Does he?
Buck Davidson – Equestrian – A Buck riding a horse
