Hails from: Australia
Occupation: Olympic diver
Known for: Her work on the 10M platform (solo and synchronized), being the youngest and smallest diver (at 4’6″ and 81 lbs.) to ever represent Australia, winning the silver at the 2006 Commonwealth Games, making this oh-so-Hardass quote her mantra: “Strong minds suffer without complaining, weak minds complain without suffering.”
Judging by her Takkle profile, which lists her favorite movies as Borat and Jackass and her favorite TV shows as Little Britain, Family Guy, and Summer Heights High, Melissa, who is half-Chinese (from her father’s side), also has winning sense –i.e. our kind–of humor.
Hails from: Hawaii
Occupation: Olympic wrestler
Known for: At 4’11″ and 105 lbs., being the smallest U.S. Olympian; scoring a major upset at the Olympic Trials this month by beating Patricia Miranda, whom the 26 year-old Chun lost to at the 2004 Trials (and who went on to win the bronze in Athens); making those weird wrestling singlets look bitchin’ and putting a cute face on a badass, butch sport.
