This sexy 25 (almost 26) year old French diver from Laval, Quebec is this week’s Sports Stud. His name is Alexandre Despatie. He’s been the world champion at the 1m and 3m springboards from 2005 to 2007, and is the first ever (and so far only) World Champion in the 1, 3, and 10m platform categories. That’s pretty amazing! Go Canada! Speaking of which, he’s also the 36x senior diving champion. You know, no big deal. LOL.
His story began when he began diving at 5 years old, and caught the attention of the world at 13 years old when he won a gold medal on the 10m platform at the Commonwealth Games in 1998, getting into the Guinness Book Of World Records in 2000 as a result.
Fast forward through several medals and accomplishments, at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he got the silver medal in the 3m springboard and in 2010 he won 3 gold medals for Canada at the Commonwealth Games. This sexy diver is definitely a frontrunner for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London for Canada. You may recognize him for some of the broadcast coverage he did during the 2010 Winter Olympics while taking a little break from training. Can’t wait to cheer for him next year!
Looks like he wants a hug! :)
I’m sure we’d all like to make his toes curl like that…
Oh let me get that towel for you. You shouldn’t have to dry yourself off…
Face down, ass up, that’s the way we like to…. Well, technically his face isn’t down, but…it still works.
Bulge. There I said it. Seriously, where did your eyes go first?
Proud to have the Maple Leaf next to his flagpole.
