10 Epic Fails of the London Olympics

We tend to think of Olympians as super humans, so skilled in their sports that an average person could never come close to their superior echelon of awesome-ness. OK, so that might be true (looking at you, Michael Phelps), but there still are plenty of Olympic moments to remind us all that no matter how high we can jump or how fast humans can run, in the end, we're all just people.

The 2012 Olympics come to a close this weekend, and in celebration, we've found a collection of blunders, embarrassing mental breakdowns, even a little dash of pretty boy Ryan Lochte. Check out the Ten Epic Fails of the London Olympics (so far).
