With the 44th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships taking place this week in Antwerp, Belgium, I figured it would make sense to put the spotlight on one of the many handsome and chiseled competitors. Some of them we’ve already featured before, but one gymnast that hasn’t been highlighted in a Sports Stud is Russia’s David Belyavskiy. That being said, he was listed in our 15 Hottest Male Gymnasts at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Earlier this week in qualifications, David Belyavskiy had a bit of trouble on his first two apparatuses, the Parallel Bars and the Horizontal Bar, but then stepped things up on the Floor and Pommel Horse. He was able to secure a 14th overall placing to solidify his spot in the finals which are taking place this weekend. Belyavskiy is the 2013 European All-around champion.

Check out some of his photos below as well as some of the videos from the competition earlier this week. Enjoy!
