Team USA Olympians (Mostly) Give It Their All While Singing ‘We Are the Champions’
It’s great to watch them run, swim and jump, but, come on, you know you want to watch America’s best athletes belt out a tune.
W magazine corralled a bunch of the Olympians from the U.S. to sing Queen’s classic “We Are the Champions.” And you thought these were the best moments from this year’s Games? Puh-leeze.
The results? Well, a lot of them give it the ol’
college Olympic try, but some elect to speak the lyrics. Either they’re not much for singing or they’re afraid they just won’t do Freddie Mercury any justice.
Some, like Sue Bird, Gabby Douglas and Ashton Eaton, really get into the spirit of things, so when these stars get home, you have to wonder if one or two of them will get a call about lending their talents to Lip Sync Battle.
