Jadeveon Clowney

I've Never Seen Anyone Run Like Him

Says Olympic Sprinter

2/24/2014 8:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0224-maurice-jadeveon-getty-01Jadeveon Clowney's INCREDIBLE 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine didn't just impress the football community -- it blew away an Olympic sprinting legend who tells TMZ Sports he's never seen anything like it.

In case you haven't heard, Clowney -- who weighs 266 pounds -- ran a blazing fast 4.47 ... faster than almost ALL of the running backs at the combine.

We spoke to Maurice Green -- the former 100 meter dash record holder -- who tells us plain and simple -- "Jadeveon is a freak athlete."

Green -- who trains a bunch of NFL stars including Richard Sherman and Reggie Bush -- says, "You don't get too many guys with his size and speed. Guys like Jadeveon don't come around that often. If I was a QB in the NFL I'd be worried."

Still, Green says he'd destroy Clowney in a footrace -- "My best 40 time was 3.8."

That's fast.

U.S. Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson says she's officially ditching her Tinder account ... telling TMZ Sports she's way too good-looking to be hunting for dudes through an app.

Anderson -- who won gold in Sochi -- famously told the media she used Tinder to meet other sexy athletes in Olympic Village ... but now, Jamie says she's having a serious change of heart.

"I don't need it," Jamie says ... telling us the app didn't ever lead her to a quality hookup during her stint in Russia.

So, what's Jamie's plan now? 

There's always Jdate ... ChristianMingle ... BlackPeopleMeet ... FarmersOnly ...

Jamaican Bobsled Team

Watermelon Helmets?

Watermelon Helmets.

2/17/2014 8:18 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217_jamaica_watermelon_helmets_sochi_olympics_launch_v3File This Under: "Questionable Decision Making" ... but the Jamaican Bobsled Team competed over the weekend wearing helmets that looked like watermelons.

Of course, in the U.S. ... there's a well-known stereotype about black people and watermelon -- but in fact, it's not really a "thing" in Jamaica.

Still, a little weird to see a team consisting entirely of black people wearing helmets that look like watermelon.

As one Jamaican source put it ... "I don't know about any stereotype ... all I know is we eat them, not put them on our heads."

Bode Miller

Don't Blame Reporter For Painful Olympics Interview

... Blame NBC!

2/17/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217-bode-miller-nbc-01

Bode Miller says he's NOT upset with reporter Christin Cooper ... after she pushed him so hard about the skier's dead brother during a post-race interview yesterday, he broke down in tears.

Instead, it appears Bode is placing the blame on Christin's bosses at NBC.

The interview took place moments after Bode placed 3rd in the Men's Alpine Super G event in Sochi -- when Cooper kept asking questions about Bode's bro Chilly, who passed away recently from a seizure.

Bode broke down and cried -- ending the interview ... and almost instantly, the cyber-backlash began against Cooper.

But last night, Bode went to Twitter and wrote, "I appreciate everyone sticking up for me. Please be gentle w christin cooper, it was crazy emotional and not all her fault. #heatofthemoment."

He continued, "My emotions were very raw, she asked the questions that every interviewer would have, pushing is part of it, she wasn't trying to cause pain."

Here's where it gets interesting ... 'cause a short time later, he re-posted a tweet from a fan who wrote, "Bode. It wasn't her fault. It was the fault of @NBCOlympics producers. She was being told what to ask."

Subtle, but clearly he signs off on the fan's opinion.

Tinder to Team USA:

Focus On Winning

... Not Boning!

2/13/2014 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212-jamie-anderson-tinder-olympics
Team USA is obsessed with Tinder -- the app that helps you find people to bang -- but now, the company's co-founder is begging the athletes to KEEP IT IN THEIR PANTS until after their events.

Earlier this week, gold-medal winning snowboarder Jamie Anderson told US Weekly, "Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level ... There are some cuties on there.”

She added, "There was a point where I had to be like OK, this is way too distracting. I deleted my account to focus on the Olympics.”

We spoke with Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen, who has a surprising message for the Olympians: Focus on kicking ass ... not tapping it.

"Tinder is a great way to meet new people when you're traveling and want to get the most out of your experience in a new city, but for now, focus on giving it your all while competing."

"Tinder will always be here when you're done."

Of course, Olympic Village has a reputation for being a "debaucherous" sex party ... and the app only makes it that much easier to find an athlete to bone.

Go USA.

Things haven't even begun to heat up in Sochi yet ... at least when it comes to the storied SEX PARTIES in Olympic Village ... so says someone who would know, Team USA snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg.

Kotsenburg -- who just won THE GOLD in Snowboard Slopestyle -- is back in the U.S. and earlier today, we HAD to ask about the international bangfest that athletes have been raving about for years!

OLYMPIC SEX NOTE -- tons of athletes have talked about the rampant sex in Olympic Village, including UFC bad ass Ronda Rousey, who told us the scene is pure "debauchery."

But Sage tells us ... none of the athletes are playin' hide the pirozhki just yet ... explaining, "Toward the end of the week, people get pretty rowdy I heard."

On a related note, Sage says he might head back to Russia before the games are over.

Atta boy!!!!

In fact, a rep for the band tells us ... they've already been in contact with the Olympians in the hopes they can bring them on stage at one of their shows to play the song together.

The band even gave us this note to pass on to the skiers -- "We love you guys! Go Team USA!"

Randy Couture

MMA Olympic Movement Growing

More Than 30 Countries Are Down

2/11/2014 12:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



UFC legend Randy Couture says there's serious momentum in the fight to get MMA back in the Olympics ... with more than 30 COUNTRIES on board and ready to roll.

Couture was leaving an event in L.A. this weekend when he said, "I think there's 34 or 39 countries that have signed petitions" for a sport called pankration ... an ancient form of MMA.

FYI -- pankration was an olympic sport in ancient Greece. The only rules were no biting or eye-gouging.

So, when should we expect to see MMA fighters competing for the gold? Probably not any time soon ... in fact, a UFC exec recently said he thinks it's still 20 years away.

It's OK ... good things come to those who wait.
