FLOTUS Arm Wrestles for Olympic Torch

Chicago’s favorite denizen is heading to Copenhagen in hopes of sweet talking folks before the Olympic Committee votes on whether Chicago, Madrid, Tokyo or Rio de Janeiro will play host for the 2016 Summer Games.  Michelle will have some competition though; the King of Spain, Brazil’s President and the Japanese royal family are plannning to do their own schmoozing of the committee.

BoL is hoping our FLOTUS will flex a little muscle while in Copenhagen, especially in light of the renewed attention to her glorious biceps.  Women’s Health magazine recently interviewed Michelle’s trainer, Cornell McClellan, about how Michelle stays fit.  According to the article, the First Lady “might do one set of 15 to 20 reps each of lunges, bench presses, hip raises, and rows, all without resting–and with short bouts of intense cardio mixed in. …The workouts also feature rope-jumping, kickboxing, and body-weight calisthenics.”  Phew!  BoL is tired from just cutting and pasting that list of activities.

Ignoring David Brooks’ snarky (jealous?) comment about Michelle putting away “Thunder and Lightning”, who better to advocate on behalf of Chicago’s Olympic dreams?
