Sports Stud: Fernando Verdasco

For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to highlight tennis hottie, Fernando Verdasco. The 30-year old is a professional tennis player from Madrid, Spain and has earned almost $11 million in prize money in his career. He started playing when he was four years old and had a full time coach by the time he was eight years old.

Given his good looks and great body, Verdasco has been successful as a model as well, including the popular “X” campaign done by Calvin Klein a few years back. I’ve included some photos and videos from the campaign, as well as several other shots I’m sure you’ll appreciate. One such shot is one where he posed nude for Cosmopolitan Magazine back in the July 2008 issue to raise awareness of male cancer for Everyman Campaign. Enjoy!

First of all, I had no idea that there was a taboo of being a gay surfer within that subculture. Secondly, WOOOOF!!!! How hot is Adam George in the above photo? I wouldn’t mind getting ‘caught inside’ and riding that huge wave. Sorry, Brian ;)

About 2.7 million Aussies enjoy the national sport but there aren’t many openly gay surfers. George is one of three out surfers The Feed interviewed for the short film Caught Inside. David Wakefield, a former competitive surfer and state surfing champion, is another one featured in the video. Check out what they have to say about being out in the sport of surfing below.

Olympian John Fennell Comes Out

As if luge wasn’t already gay enough. Now we have a member of the family competing in the sport. John Fennell who competed at the 2014 Sochi Olympics came out as gay in an interview with the Montreal Gazette. The 19-year-old Canadian Olympian placed 27th in the singles luge event in Russia.

“It’s suffocating,” Fennell says about living in the closet. “You have to play this game of, ‘who knows?’ You can’t let off any vibes or secrets. You have to act super macho. You have to be hyper aware of your mannerisms and to not let off any vibes that could get detected. It’s very exhausting.”

Fennell also talks to the publication about his experience at the Sochi Olympics amid the country’s extremely anti-gay propaganda law.

“I was a little distraught over the lack of leadership going into Sochi,” he says of competing in Russia. “There were a few out girls, but to my knowledge there weren’t any out guys, and I know they’re there.

“I’m an athlete. Realistically, I put on a spandex suit and slide down a mountain.

I’m no message board for political movements. But we need to have leaders in our sport community. If it takes a 19-year-old to step up and do that, I’m more than willing to use my voice or the platform that I’ve been given to give a figurehead to gay youth in sport.”

Fennell comes from an athletic family. His father is former Canadian Football League superstar David Fennell and the younger brother of Michigan State nose tackle David Fennell Jr. Check out more pics of John below.

With a few sexy articles floating around on Facebook this week to do with Crossfit, it seemed like a good time to feature someone from Crossfit for this week’s Sports Stud. One of the articles had to do with a gym in Denmark that now offers nude CrossFit workouts, while the other was a BuzzFeed post titled “14 People Who Prove CrossFit Makes You Hotter“. One of the hotties from this list was none other than Khan Porter.

As the author of the BuzzFeed article explained, “He’s hot. He’s Australian. He’s headed to California for the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games. Do you really need any more reasons to watch?” Khan is 24-years old and is a CrossFit competitor, coach, fitness model, and more. He grew up playing rugby, swimming and surfing.

Check out his incredible body in the photos below. I’ve also included his Instagram account below – you won’t regret following him… hot, hot, hot!

Sports Stud: Jesus Navas

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup drawing near (which is in Brazil), I decided to highlight one of the countless hotties in the sport of soccer (or football depending on what part of the world you’re in). This week’s Sports Stud is 28-year old Jesus Navas who is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Manchester City as a right winger. He’s known for his quick dribbling and an ability to run at opposing defenders.

Other than his playing ability and good looks, one of the most striking things about Navas is his stunning eyes. Seriously, how could you not get lost in them? I’m fairly certain they are green, but like many people with green eyes, they can sometimes appear blue. Anyway, check out his handsome photos below, as well as a video highlighting his skills on the field.

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’ve got the handsome Adam Scott as our feature athlete. No, no… not Adam Scott from NBC’s Parks & Recreation – the Adam Scott from Australia that is a professional golfer and natural born surfer.

It’s an exciting time for Adam Scott right now. Not only is he one of the number one golfers in the world right now, but on April 17, Scott married his longtime girlfriend Marie Kojzar in a small ceremony in the Bahamas, as reported by the Australian Associated Press on Friday. In terms of golf, the 33-year old’s biggest win to date was the 2013 Masters Tournament, his first major championship and the first Masters won by an Australian in its 77-year history.

Check out his pictures below and congratulations to the happy couple!

The NFL draft is taking place as we speak. Michael Sam came out with much fanfare back in February. If picked, he would become the first active openly gay player in the league. The 24-year-old University of Missouri graduate is expected to be a late-round pick. Can you imagine all the mayhem if Sam isn’t chosen. The NFL will surely be slammed with charges of homophobia.

On the eve of this potentially historic weekend, Sam signed his first endorsement deal. Definitely unprecedented for someone who’s not a first round draft pick. Visa posted a video spot featuring the SEC Defensive Player of the Year to its YouTube account on Thursday- the first day of the NFL draft.

“We felt that Michael’s story was a perfect fit for our ‘everywhere’ campaign, which is meant to inspire people to reach their own personal goals and aspirations,” Visa’s chief marketing officer Kevin Burke told ESPN.com. “We wish Michael the best on and off the field as he embarks on the next chapter of his life.”

The Missouri defensive end had 11.5 sacks, 19 tackles for loss and forced two fumbles during his award-winning season. Check out the Visa commercial below.

Notre Dame University is the latest to support the You Can Play initiative. Athletes from their various athletics department ranging from swimming to football filmed a PSA encouraging all genders and sexual orientation to join in on the fun. Most notably, tennis player Matt Dooley who came out last year as gay appears in the clip.

You Can Play brings together gay and straight athletes teaming up for respect. The campaign’s mandate believes locker rooms should be safe and sports venues should be free from homophobia. Athletes should be judged on talent, heart and work ethic, not sexual orientation. Check out Notre Dame’s submission below.
