Kobe Bryant sheds 16 pounds for Olympics

By Austin Amuzie - Thursday, July 26, 2012

Kobe Bryant dropped 16 pounds for his Olympics games performance, while Kobe happens to have as much talent as all but a few other players in the history of the sport, he arguably stands out most for his immense drive to get better. At every step of his career, he's done what's necessary to stay at the top of the game (as best he can, at least) and keep the Lakers in championship contention. It hasn't always worked out, but it wasn't for lack of trying.


In 2008, Bryant led Team USA to the gold medal in part by setting an intense tone in practices and games, particularly on the defensive end. For this year's tournament in London, Bryant has also committed himself to being at his best. To do so, he's changed his body by dropping 16 pounds.


The lost weight is not incredibly noticeable at first glance, but a closer look does show Bryant with a more angular face, more toned arms and a slightly sleeker, less muscular look. It's not as if he was in bad shape before — this is a matter of optimization rather than necessary overhaul.
