Having watched the men’s world gymnastics championships that took place in Tokyo a couple weekends ago, I thought I’d highlight another gymnast this week, since these hot muscular men in tights are still fresh in my mind. This week we have 20-year old a Cuban-American artistic gymnast, Danell Leyva. Actually, as I write this, he’s only 19, but his birthday is on October 30th I’m rounding up (Happy Birthday, Danell!) This stud is the 2011 U.S national all-around gold medalist and the 2011 world champion on the parallel bars. Needless to say, he’s well on his way to being part of the Summer 2012 Olympics in London.

Leyva started gymnastics in 1995, and both of his parents were both members of Cuba’s national gymnastics team. Another random fact about his family is that his mom’s cousin once held the world record in holding his breath underwater : 7 minutes and 15 seconds). That’s incredible!

Needless to say (since he’s a gymnast), the handsome guy’s body is in incredible shape and I’m sure you’ll appreciate some of the birthday boy’s photos below!

Just hangin’ out. Check out those arms!

Legs are one of my fave parts of a guy (as you probably already know). Check out his muscular legs…as he does the spits – :p

Such focus in his face.

Pretty amazing. One of the few pictues I was able to find that highlight his backside. ;)

Handsome face, great body. Now he just needs to take off his shirt more.
