I was watching women’s volleyball on Saturday, and learned there’s an American volleyball star named Destinee Hooker.  Who knew?

A website called Sports Pickle broke down 60 of the funniest names in the Olympics for 2012. It seemed like almost every country that participated had a name that made you chuckle. Heck, some countries had more than others.

Check out the list of ten that we though were the funniest. Did your favorite name make the list?

#1.)  Chinese trampolinist Dong Dong.

#2.)  Canadian swimmer Victoria Poon.

#3.)  Austrian heptathlete Ivona Dadic.

#4.)  South Korean pole vaulter Yoo Suk Kim.

#5.)  New Zealand cyclist Jack Bauer . . . like from “24″.

#6.)  Swiss equestrian athlete Werner Muff.

#7.)  Canadian track star Gavin Smellie.

#8.)  Japanese volleyball player Yoshie Takeshita.

#9.)  Chinese sailor Aichen Wang.

#10.)  A track and field athlete from Trinidad and Tobago named Sparkle McKnight.
