There is some major tongue action at the World Athletics Championships in Berlin. Sticking the tongue out and licking the lips a la LL Cool J was the post-victory swagger popularized by Cuba's Dayron Robles and Britain's Phillips Idowu at the Beijing Olympics. Now all the track and field hotness are doing it.
Phillips Idowu displays his latest tongue piercing after winning gold in the triple jump. German decathlete Norman Müller shows what he's working with (wow) and American Wallace Spearmon licks his lips in victory after winning bronze in the 200 meters. AFTER THE JUMP, more track and field tongue action. Whatever they're suggesting, there are probably many men very willing to help..
Terrence Trammell celebrates capturing the silver medal in the men's 110 hurdles ... which Cuban Olympic gold medalist Dayron Robles was favored to win before his injury, seen here flicking his tongue in reptilian fashion, his signature move.
The man below needs no introduction. Usain Bolt ... well, he's giving major tongue every time he collects a gold medal. Which is fairly often.
