why pro athletes sleep so much

awesome article/infographic by Cliff Kung explaining what happens to athletes if they don't get 10-12 hours of sleep per week:


and another infographic calling out specific athletes and telling how much they sleep.
check out lebron and federer!


kung finishes the article posing the question - do athlets sleep so much b/c they need to be at their peak at all times. OR do they sleep so much b/c they have more free time than the general population?

I'd go with the former - you'd be surprised at how much athletes need to dedicate to their sport even when they aren't physically working out.

another awesome infographic about relationships. looks very similar to The so-called Sankey Diagram which was made most famous by the astonishing chart of Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Russia during wintertime:

remember - there are 3 million first dates every single day (!)
