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.

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.

Since a few of us were in Seattle last weekend to celebrate Adam‘s birthday, I decided to feature one of the players from the Seattle Seahawks for this week’s Sports Stud. This week’s sexy athlete is 25-year-old NFL football quarterback, Russell Wilson.

Back in 2012, Wilson signed a four-year, $2.99 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks was officially named the team’s starting quarterback on August 26, 2012. Outside of football, he has also play Major League Baseball and in fact, this past December he was drafted to the Texas Rangers. He has endorsement deals with American Family Insurance, Nike, Alaska Airlines, and Larson Automotive Group. He’s also been featured in many magazines, including GQ Magazine this year and some of these photos are included below. Good luck to the Seahawks who are playing the New Orleans Saints today! Enjoy the photos below.

With 52 appearances for Germany’s national team from 2004-2010, including a trip to the 2006 World Cup, and years playing in England’s Premier League, Thomas Hitzlsperger is arguably one of the most high profile footballers, active or retired, to come out as gay. The 31-year-old made the announcement Wednesday in a German newspaper (Die Zeit) four months after his retirement from the sport.

“I’m coming out about my homosexuality because I want to move the discussion about homosexuality among professional sportspeople forwards.” “Only in the last few years have I realized that I preferred living together with a man,” Hitzlsperger says. ”I was never ashamed of being who I am but it was not always easy to sit on a table with 20 young men and listen to jokes about gays.”

“I was never ashamed of how I am,” said Hitzlsperger, adding that the behavior of some of his teammates was sometimes hard to take. “Think about it. There are 20 young men sitting around a table drinking. You let most of it go, as long as the jokes are halfway funny and the rubbish about homosexuals is not hugely offensive.”

While he’ll receive some flack from critics about coming out after his retirement, I applaud him. The more athletes that come out, active or not, it will encourage others to do so and inspire our youth. Plus it’ll show the world, that gay men are equally as adept to playing sports as their heterosexual counterparts.

In other gay sports-related news, this weekend on CNN International, the documentary Journey Of The Gay Athlete premieres. Blake Skjellerup, Robbie Rogers and Brittney Griner will discuss the struggles they had to overcome for not being straight in the world of sports. “I was always very sensitive to words “homo’ and ‘fag’,” Rogers states in the promo, while speed skater Skellerup says, “It’s quite a hard thing if you’re young and in sports and don’t have anyone to relate to.” Check out the clip below.

In this past 2013 season, he became the youngest major league player (while 20 at the time) to hit two home runs in his team’s first game of the season. Impressive!

The NBA might have a shortage of openly-gay active players, but the same can’t be said of offspring from legends of the game. There’s plenty of them. Magic Johnson has a wickedly fabulous gay son named Earvin Johnson (EJ) III and Michael Jordan is the proud father of lesbian daughter Jasmine. I had no idea former Detroit Pistons player Isiah Thomas also had an openly-out child.

The Hall of Famer is father to renowned open format DJ and producer Zeke Thomas. The 24-year-old is the official DJ for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game in February. I wonder how he got that gig *wink*. In all fairness, Zeke has an impressive resume which includes collaborating with Snoop Dogg, DJ White Shadow, Ludacris, Pitbull and Wilmer Valderrama to name a few. He also plays club bashes in New York, Las Vegas, Miami, and his hometown of Detroit. He has plans to drop his debut single “Regret” sometime this year.

Thomas recently sat with Michael Musto for OUT.com where he talks about growing up as a jock, his famous father, LGBT-friendliness in the NBA, his boyfriend and much more. Check out a few quotes below, along with a picture of Zeke and his father posing for NOH8 back in 2010.

On If He Thinks The NBA Is Gay Friendly

“I do. When Jason Collins came out, my father said to me, “This isn’t something uncommon.” He played with gay players. He said, “Even in high school, I knew there were gay athletes.” It’s not as big an issue as the media like to make it out: “You’re gonna be shamed in the locker room!”
