For now and forevermore, boxing is a sport and boxers are athletes. This weeks challenge: BODYBUILDING: SPORT or NOT A SPORT? BODYBUILDERS: ATHLETES or NOT ATHLETES? Pump, p-p-pump pump, p-pump pump, pump, pump it up!

no two ways about it, it ain't a sport. whether they are athletes are not? that's arguable. they train alot. they have a strict dietary regiment when preparing for display. they have to fit their shrunken bits into a out-of-style-alpine-skiing-neon-euro-beach-sling. they have to take a lot of 'supplements' to get that not-so-human look. they shave their faces, and so do the men. the develop austrian accents. they have politicial aspirations. they 'oil' for the show. no two ways about it.
