Rich Fellers Sets New Gold Standard For Olympic Names

New, comments

It has been clearly established that we here at SB Nation are too poor to be able to compete in -- let alone appreciate -- equestrian Olympic events like dressage and eventing. That's fine. Not everyone can be the secret CEO of Bain well-off enough to afford a million-dollar dancehorse. You know who can, though? Rich Fellers.

Yes, Rich Fellers. A member of the United States equestrian team. Seriously. His name is "Rich Fellers," and he has the most perfect name-to-event ratio in Olympic history. Because he's a rich feller. Get it? Here, Reddit even gave us photographic evidence:


So, of course, this got us to thinking of what would be some other perfect Olympic names. Our shortlist:

- Spike Volleyballman

- "Legs" Hurdleton

- Divey Splashworth

- Lee Ping (so many track and field possibilities!)

- Archer Bowman

- Fencing Von Lungestab

- Teri Polo
