Are you a grunter?

This is just a quickie for fun! Wimbledon officials are kindly asking players to tone down the grunting, saying the noise is annoying both in the stands and on the telly (that’s what the Brits call it). Check out the full report here. The loudest grunter on record? Back in 2009 Maria Sharapova busted out with a grunt measuring 105 decibels. That’s about the same level as a snowmobile or a symphony orchestra. According to this website, any exposure to that level of sound for over a minute puts you at risk for permanent hearing loss. Somehow I don’t think the guys are worried about that when they are watching Miss Maria.
