After yesterday blogging that it was a shame Karsten Warholm wasn’t a woman who looked like Gemma Atkinson, there was an American dream 1-2 in the women’s 3000 metres steeplechase last night, as very golden Emma Coburn took gold, and quite golden Courtney Frerichs took silver.
Timing a Coincidence
Marc Latham of course did his third marathon in the U.S.A., but the Americans are always winning golds, so it’s stretching the legacy joke a bit thin to claim it’s his legacy. The timing was quite a coincidence though, and the greenYgrey had never heard of Coburn and Frerichs before.
Coburn knows all about the greenYgrey though, having already successfully gYgPOPed (greenYgrey and PinkyOrangePurple) in Rio 2016, the greenYgrey legacy games, after London 2012 was the greenYgrey games:
Dafne Schippers and Darya Klishina: Athletics and AAW
There were other excellent golden performances last night, as Dafne Schippers took gold in the 200 metres. Dutch Dafne (two words starting with D, noticing a bit of greenYgreyesque wordplay) has put athletics before AAWsomeness, but her natural beauty is still evident underneath her big muscles.
Maybe that’s why Darya Klishina only took silver in the long jump, as she almost perfectly combined AAWsomeness with athleticism, but perhaps had too much of the former.
Her forename is five-letters starting with a D gold though, creating a greenYgrey3 hat-trick with Dutch Dafne.
Loving and Liking Women
While the above is mostly meant in jest, it does hold clues to my taste in women, although I don’t expect any of the above women to care; but women whose types aren’t included above will probably care in a NEGATIVE way!
As the difference between me loving and liking female bodies can be thin margins, like winning gold and silver (not that I’m comparing my taste to world athletics medals!), it’s the same for women’s demeanours (not demonics!).
I liked Frerichs’s exasperated look at winning silver, similar to Munch and Warholm’s Scream…
but loved the coolness of Coburn winning gold more…
Klishina seems to have a similar mature coolness. Schippers was also cool in victory, but in a done it all before way, which she has done of course.
Marie-Josée Ta Lou won silver in the 200 metres, just missing out on gold as she did in the 100 metres, and reacted in a golden personality way in both. Ta Lou’s double disappointment was really a three, as being from the Ivory Coast she would have qualified for Team GG too, if it hadn’t been disbanded.
I hope making the greenYgrey website is some consolation.
