    I don't think they have competing apples Catherine, and as a very typical apple shape, I can't even try to hide it. :lol:

    Seeing as peoples shaped tend to be named after fruit, apple shape, pear shape, I would have much preferred to be a banana shape. :lol:

    Discus thrower!

    The graph is very interesting - the BMI of the competitors goes from 15.9 (artistic gymnast) to 46.6 (a Weightlifter) - all of whom are obviously elite athletes. The weightlifter weighs more than 5 times more than the gymnast (and could probably lift about 15 gymnasts).
