Bollywood industry comprises of talents that stretch beyond acting and dancing. Many of our actors and actresses are trained in sports as well. While some have started training after the start of their career, while some have left their skills for Bollywood.
The trend of getting body parts insured, as I can tell from memory (because I want to give Google a break, and put my brain to work again), started with Jennifer Lopez and her famous posterior. It wasn’t too long before our very desi celebs took their body parts to the insurance agents and got them cover for a huge amount.
These are actors who are sportsmen and we beleive that they could have easily earned laurels for India, had they played their sports instead of pursuing acting.
While bets were on Lady Gaga to get political during her half time performance, the Schuyler Sisters beat her to it.

This evening is Game 1 of the NBA Finals, where the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will once again face off, and each team has a very stylish roster.
Kobe Bryant stands out as an undeniably stylish dude. To honor the star's amazing career and say goodbye, we take a look back at our favorite of his looks.

This Sunday, February 7th marks the 50th NFL Super Bowl— a golden anniversary for one of the most expensive and profitable sporting events in U.S. history—with an average ticket price of $4,841. Both teams possess impressive rosters (with celebrity players like Peyton Manning and Cam Newton), nearly unbeatable rankings, and an abiding season-long fortitude that have propelled them both into limelight—on and off the field. For the Broncos, a team that built itself with a “win-now” mentality, since signing quarterback Peyton Manning in 2012, have proven themselves as one of the most feared defensive units in the league.
At 5-foot-1 and 100 pounds, Ashima Shiraishi might not look like the elite, groundbreaking athlete that she is. But Shiraishi is quite possibly the best female rock climber in the world.
The NFL’s championship game might be taking place on Sunday, but the most important matchup of the season doesn’t involve the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos. For the second year in a row, Victoria’s Secret is airing an ad during the Super Bowl in which the Angels — including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, and Taylor Hill — challenge the Devils in the sexiest battle ever to take place on a football field. Obviously, thanks to head coach Erin Andrews, fancy lingerie underneath their pads, wings, and being in really good shape (seriously, being a professional model requires stamina — just ask Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bündchen), the Angels were victorious. Perhaps their touchdowns were a present from Cupid?
If Cam Newton was a fashion blogger, he’d probably be a peacock. Stepping off the plane at Mineta San Jose International Airport, the 26-year-old wore cropped Versace patterned pants with a black sweater and white collared shirt underneath. The Carolina Panther kept warm for the flight with a hooded leather jacket on top.

Post-game press conferences aren’t just a forum for reflection, they’re a stage to set trends. (Thank you, Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook for giving the world the glasses without lenses look.) Now with social media, these ballers can put their other passion — fashion — on display.
Serena Williams, who has made it through the third round of the Australian Open, going for a shot. Photo: Reuters In the third round of the Australian Open, Serena Williams beat Daria Kasatkina 6-1, 6-1 in just 44 minutes, the shortest match of the tournament so far. After a four month “break” (which included lots of training, dates with Drake, a runway show at New York Fashion Week, taking home Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year, posing topless for Pirelli, and more), the GOAT of women’s tennis is already having a strong 2016 season. But fans, looking for fault in her game and finding nothing, hated on her outfit instead, For the match, Williams opted for a bright yellow crop top with mesh panels and black lining around the bicep and neckline.
This morning, Sports Illustrated announced its Sportsperson of the Year to be Serena Williams, a clear choice considering she won 53 of 56 matches and three of four Grand Slam events this year. But the cover decision, photographed by Yo Tsai, is also monumental: Williams is the first and only Sportsperson of the Year to be slathered in baby oil and photographed without pants. ...

Now, he’s taken his affection for board sports even further and collaborated on a line of surfboards and skateboard decks. The limited edition boards — only 80 surfboards and 300 skate decks were made — were manufactured in California by Tanner Prairie, a local shaper. The eclectic designs include a hot pink tie dye with “BABY” in big block letters and cheetah print boards with Saint Laurent on the bottom.

Jessica Schnurr and Hannah Smit, two creative consultants at branding agency John St., made a video in which professional male athletes look flabbergasted or dumbstruck when they get asked the exact same questions that female professional athletes have asked. “These are not the actual responses of the athletes featured in these clips.
“If you know me, you know I’m always coming up with ideas for new inventions,” Jimmy Fallon, host of The Tonight Show, revealed on Wednesday. “Some are just fun things for the show, others are just random ideas that will haunt people’s nightmares and dreams for years to come — and one of these ideas just became a real thing.” The comedian, who revealed he’d be launching a sports apparel collaboration earlier this month, gave his new fashion line its late night TV debut on Wednesday. He pitched the idea around and on his first try, G-III Apparel Corp. accepted. While Fallon originally suggested Pitz as the collection’s name for its young, fresh, and funky feel, G-III, the company that backs Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, convinced him to go with Hands High instead.
Billie Jean’s list of pioneering accomplishments is long. Billie Jean might be most famous for crushing former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs in the “Battle of the Sexes.” The experience is being captured in two upcoming movies, one with Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks and another with Steve Carell and Emma Stone. Before their showdown, the then 55-year-old Riggs was very vocal about his opinion that women could never beat men at tennis and Billie Jean made it her mission to prove him wrong.
Serena Williams models her new Nike Greatness Collection. Photo: Courtesy Nike “They decided to call it Greatness and I was like, okay cool I love that,” laughs Serena Williams when describing her latest collaboration with Nike at the Standard Hotel earlier this week. “That’s what it’s all about.” The greatest tennis player of her generation all time was in town to fête the new offerings, which will be available to purchase tomorrow (August 27) and are comprised of two performance dresses (one for day and another for night) as well as three pairs of shoes (ranging in price from $160 to $200), and a bomber jacket that features an inspirational message hand-written by Williams herself. John McEnroe was on hand to introduce Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Maria Sharapova for a casual set of doubles (we told you this event was major!), but it was the woman with 36 major single, doubles, and mixed double titles who received the loudest applause.
