There are only a handful of men and women in the world who are known by one name. Some that come to mind are Pele in soccer, Prince and Madonna in music, Hitler in world domination, Gandhi in world peace.
Brazilian volleyball player Thaisa is one of those people who are recognizable by a large number of people with only one name.
For over 10 years, the 32 year old Thaisa has been a dominating force in Brazilian volleyball. She owns two Olympic gold medals (2008 and 2012) and a host of other honors.
In April of 2017, the gorgeous Thaisa dislocated her right ankle while playing for a Turkish Club team. She stepped on an opposing Dutch player's foot. The result was a foot that was obviously out of position. Players for both teams were visibly shaken as Thaisa begged for help.
Fortunately for us (not so much her), the incident was captured on video.
And here is another version of the accident
Amazingly, Thaisa's ankle was dislocated but not broken. The Brazilian sex pot underwent surgery that night was was placed in a soft splint.
Two weeks later, the splint was replaced with a walking boot and Thaisa was on the road to recovery.
Fortunately, Thaisa recovered well and continued her volleyball career. About a month ago, she announced her retirement from world class volleyball. She will continue to play at the club level.
To say that Thaisa was proud of her body would be an understatement. She has been featured often in magazines in bikinis and skimpy outfits. Hell, if I had her body I would show it off also.
