Real Life Athletes Doing Real Life Stuff

Most of us occasionally have to take our work home with us though it’s a problem that probably doesn’t affect the majority of athletes. These fun-filled pictures show why it’s a good idea they leave their work on the field/court/track. Jordan Matter showcases their athletic prowess in everyday situations such as a martial artist shaving with a samurai sword, an ice hockey goalie shopping and a gymnast balancing from a street sign. You don’t get that with accountants. (Above: The Torture Rack / Melissa Coates / WWE Wrestler)
