Musician Athletes: 22 Artists Who Also Excelled in Sports
With the London Olympics kicking off, there's going to be plenty of hubbub about who's performing what at the opening and closing ceremonies. While that's all well and good, we thought it was more interesting to look at which musicians could hold their own in an athletic event.
It turns out that there are quite a few artists who can run, throw, hit, kick and, yes, fence just as well as some of the best in the sport. Some were captains of high school teams, others set records and a few might have gone pro if their lives shook out a little differently. So, with that in mind, check out our gallery of musicians with athletic pasts. Some might even surprise you.
