LONDON 2012: Will Smith Dabbles At Numerous Olympic Sports (GALLERY)

Will Smith's athletic frame has frequently shone on the big screen, but the actor limbered up to showcase his sports skills on Wednesday ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Smith, in the UK to promote Men in Black III, boxed, ran, hurdled and played basketball with Team GB hopefuls at the Ethos Sports Centre in Imperial College, London.

The actor was Oscar-nominated for his performance in Michael Mann's Ali in 2002 as he bulked up to depict the legendary boxer in a cinematic biography.

He has also featured in Robert Redford's golf drama The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000) and was often shown shooting some hoops in cult 90s TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
