Stanislas Wawrinka Wins Australian Open

In: Donovan, Sports & Health

Since 2005, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have dominated men’s tennis. So much so, the quartet have won all the major Grand Slams with exception to Juan Martin del Potro who captured the 2009 U.S. Open. Just like del Potro, Stanislas Wawrinka earned his first Grand Slam career title in his first Slam final debut. At long last, the Swiss stud steps out of his fellow countryman Federer’s shadow.

Though he faced an injured Nadal in the finals, nothing should be taken away from his victory. The 28-year-old athlete defeated both the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds en route to this huge milestone. He’s the first man to defeat the top two seeds at a Grand Slam since Sergi Bruguera at the 1993 French Open beat No. 1 Pete Sampras and No. 2 Jim Courier. Wawrinka also became the lowest-ranked man to win a Grand Slam singles title since 2004, the lowest-seeded man to win the Australian Open since 2002 and the oldest first-time men’s Grand Slam champion since 2001 at age 28. A job well done.

I’ve been a fan of Stanislas for years now and ecstatic he finally won a Grand Slam. Congratulations. Check out a couple of shirtless pics of the champion below.

Sports Stud: Brooks Laich

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

This week’s Sports Stud was one of a handful of sexy NHL hockey players recommended by one of our readers (thank you!). This sexy athlete is a Canadian ice hockey player, who is an alternate captain for the Washington Capitals. His name is Brooks Laich. He is 30-years old and is originally from a small town in Saskatchewan (in Canada’s prairies for those that are unfamiliar). He’s been playing professionally since 2004 and prior to playing for the Capitals, he played for the Ottawa Senators.

Laich is active in supporting various charities including charities related to multiple sclerosis and Athletes Against Autism. From what I can tell, he’s very well liked and respected on and off the ice – a great guy all around. Check out all of his hockey handsomeness below.

No doubt you’ve seen the above picture making the rounds online this week. Not surprisingly, once Justin Kripps (far left) tweeted it, the photo went viral. Who doesn’t love four burly men shirtless all packed in a small confined space?

Tim Randall, James McNaughton and Bryan Barnett joined Kripps as they weighed in for a race. The foursome qualified to represent Canada at the upcoming Sochi Olympics. They are the country’s third bobsled team competing in the 4-man bobsleigh. While their podium chances aren’t high, they handily win a gold medal as the hottest team. WOOF. I’ve gathered a couple pics of each stud below and I’m asking our readers which guy they find the hottest.

On a side note: I tried bobsledding once and it was harrowing. The G-force you encounter is insane. The instructor previously told me the run would last about a minute. I was so freaked out, I simply closed my eyes and counted until it was over. To boot, I felt claustrophobic in that tight helmet. From that experience, bobsledders earned my respect. Fully!

With exception to Super Bowl XXXIX, the year after Janet Jackson’s infamous wardrobe malfunction, the performer chosen to belt out the US national anthem has been a household name. That year the combined choirs of the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and U.S. Army Herald Trumpets did the honors. In recent years, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera received the gig. That’s a lot American Idol alums.

“Since 1993, the NFL has required performers to supply a backup track. This came after Garth Brooks walked out of the stadium prior to his XXVII performance. Only 45 minutes before kickoff, he refused to take the stage, due to a dispute with NBC. Brooks requested that the network premiere his new music video “We Shall Be Free” during the pregame. The network chose not to air the video, due to content some felt was disturbing imagery. Brooks had also refused to pre-record the anthem, which meant the league had nothing to play if he left. Television producers spotted Jon Bon Jovi in the grandstands, and were prepared to use him as a replacement. After last-minute negotiations, NBC agreed to air a clip of the video during the broadcast of the game, and Brooks was coaxed back into the stadium and sang. – Wikipedia

The Winter Olympics are only a few weeks away but it seems just like yesterday when the world was fixated with all the action in London during the 2012 Summer Olympics. Especially in the pool. Pound for pound, the venue had some of the hottest Olympians. One of them was Cameron Van Der Burgh who made our our 15 hottest medalists list.

The South African emerges from the pool in a sizzling new editorial for Gaschette magazine. Styled by Jess Lupton, Cameron looks even hotter with some facial and body hair. No need to manscape when not in the Olympics. Check out the Steve Marais-snapped photoshoot below. You’ll be thankful you did.

Another Champion Diver Comes Out

In: Donovan, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

It’s official. Diving is the gayest sport. At the very least, it’s the gayest Olympic event. From diving legend Greg Louganis to Australia’s Matthew Mitcham, the LGBT community is definitely well represented. On the heels of Tom Daley declaring his bisexuality, another diving champion in the sport has publicly come out. In fact, Ian Matos reveals Daley’s video inspired him.

The Brazilian diver stated in an interview with newspaper Correio, “From a young age, I knew I was gay, but it was here that I got to live my sexuality.” The 24-year-old athlete revealed his friends advised him to stay in the closet until after the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. Not wanting to deal with the pressure of hiding boyfriends and being publicly outed, he chose to do it on his own terms. Bravo Matos, bravo. Ian’s diving speciality is the 3m springboard. Check out more pics of Ian in action below.
