I love the Olympics because every time they roll around I get swept up in a sport that I never would watch otherwise. Every four years (or two, if you’re a Winter Olympics fan), somebody shines through as the breakthrough star in a sport you’d never think twice about. Don’t pretend like you weren’t glued to your TV while Michael Phelps was swimming or while Usain Bolt was running races.

I’m going to go out on a limb and predict this year’s Olympic superstar: Winifer Fernandez. She’s a 21-year old volleyball player for the Dominican Republic and I highly urge everyone to watch just one of her upcoming games. Not only is she a great volleyball player, but once you look at her, you’ll understand why I’m recommending you watch her play.

Here’s a sneak preview of what’s in store, and G-d bless volleyball shorts:
