          Well, they could be giving her height with the prosthetics and her weight without

          @ErinC I also love the basketball players' bodies! I'm barely 5'4" though, so...

            Ummm...yeah, they probably are. That is typically the way it is done. Or in the case of an adult amputation, the height before amputation. But weight is a more current factor. Or even her weight WITH prosthetics...those things weigh a lot less than a real leg. Considering leg weight its probably the equivalent of 140ish lbs.

            If I had to pick a body type I think hers is the best. Some of the basketball players are too much.

            I like the decathlete/heptathlete.

            I'm surprised they dont have swimmers and divers.

            And it cracks me up that Rulan is there.

              That dude, Brandon Slay, could be my body double - well, if he was like 17lbs heavier and hairy chested anyway.

              I think a nice match would be me and Olga Karmansky.

              Or Allane Baquerot.

              Or both.

                Proportionally I think I would have the chance to most look like Jennifer Parilla. I'm a bit taller but that stocky build is me. Not my ideal, but probably my ideal me.

                    interesting! Do you remember the controversy a couple years ago over athletes "racing tall"? (using prosthetics that were longer than their legs would have been, providing a mechanical advantage) There was also a sprinter who had a double amputation and was disqualified for the Olympics, then permitted to compete only to miss qualifying. He was still really, really fast. Those cheetah legs are such a superb application of technology.

                      I do remember the sprinter. There was a huge debate on whether or not the mechanical limb more than made up for lack of muscle. I think the overall conclusion was that it did because he was nowhere close to world class before the accident. I think it is considered a disadvantage for endurance events though because of the lowered amount of glycogen storage and virtually all have to stop to change the sock mid race. I have a friend who was on the world 24 hour race team (heh...how non primal is that....running for 24 hours straight) along with Amy Palmiero-Winters. She does trail ultras which seems extra hard with a prosthetic.

                        I wouldn't say she look's stocky at all, she has probably got one of the most feminine figures out of all of them.

                          I would give my eye teeth to look like the rhythmic gmynast. That little line that runs down here abdomen... where can I get that? Oh yeah, exercise....

                            I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

                                The decathlon guy is pretty much what I'm aiming for eventually, body-type permitting.
                                August 2010: 207 lb, 37" waist, 25+% BF | Currently: 177 lb, 33" waist, ~15% BF
