The Twilight Saga’s Olympic Connection?

It seems that there is an athlete from Brazil named, Isabel Swan. How much you want to bet she eventually gets asked about her name along with all the Peter Parkers, and Harry Potters out there?  Thanks to Jordie for pointing this one out.

There is a more direct connection to the Olympics. American, all-around gymnastics gold medalist Nastia Luikin is a Twilight fan.

    uhm, has someone besides a friend of mine ever noticed that there is an athlet called Cullen? Cullen Jones is a swimmer and won a gold medal in the 4x100m freestyle relay together with his teammates Michael Phelps Garrett Weber-Gale, and Jason Lezak.

    so there is more than one twilight-related athlet…

    watch yourself… you are coming dangerously close to blaspheming the book. remember, free speech isn’t welcome on the lexicon unless you are fully praising breaking dawn!
