hot-olympic-men-athletes-2010

The Olympics kick off tomorrow with an incredibly exciting and highly anticipated Opening Ceremonies at BC Place. Trust me – it’s an amazing show. Know what else is amazing? The hot athletes that are in town – specifically in this case, the male athletes.

From hockey players to luge, figure skating, snowboarding, freestyle skiing, and more, these guys are in tip top shape and looking golden. Some of them have done some shirtless campaigns or have just been photographed training, while others just have to smile to melt the fake snow here in Vancouver. For the past several weeks I’ve been writing about these hot athletes, introducing them to you and dangling their hot photos and videos in front of you, so you’ll know them if you see them “out & about.”

Check out the pictures and choose your top 3 hotties, so we can later see who win’s the Bronze, Silver, and Gold for the 2010 Olympic Hotties. If you want to look at more pictures of the athletes, or learn more about them, simply click on their name and it’ll take you their “Hottie of the Day” article.

Check out their pics and vote, after the jump…

felix-loch-germany

This young German hottie (20 years old) competes in the luge, and was the youngest world champion ever when he was 18 years old. He’s been competing in the sport since 1995 and on Team Germany since 2006. He won four gold medals at the FIL World Luge Championships – wow! Two of them were in the men’s singles (2008 AND 2009) and two in the mixed team event (2008 AND 2009). When he won the golds in 2008, that is when he became the youngest world champion ever. Amazing!

Here are some of his stats:

Sport: Luge
Birthdate: July 24, 1989
Home: Schoenau am Koenigssee, Germany
Height: 6’3″
Weight: 202 lbs
Event: Men’s Singles

warren-shouldice-shirtless

This chiseled stud is a Canadian freestyle skier that competes in aerials. His best overall World Cup finish came in 2006, when he placed third, right behind teammate Kyle Nissen (who’s also a hottie). He had qualified in 3rd place at the Torino Olympics, but ended up with 6th place for his two jumps. He’s got a really good chance this year!

Here are some of his stats:

Event: Freestyle skiing
Age: 26 (Born April 1, 1983)
Hometown: Calgary
Achievements: 3rd place at 2009 World Championships & 6th Place at 2006 Torino Olympics
Watch: February 22, 2010

He just ranked in 3rd place on January 18th at Lake Placid. Photo of his victory above. The aerialist recently suffered a concussion after he fell and injured himself landing a jump in the men’s finals of the Canada Post Freestyle Grand Prix, in January, in Mont Gabriel, Quebec. He has since recovered and still going to give it his all at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, which starts in 3 days.

fat-on-the-inside

According to Dr. Jimmy Bell (professor of molecular imaging at Imperial College, London), “Being thin doesn’t automatically mean you’re not fat.”

What he means is that slimmer people aren’t necessary healthier than their hefty counterparts. The amount of fat that surrounds our vital organs which we can’t see can be just as dangerous as the muffin tops and back fats that we can see.  That being said, you skinny people shouldn’t try to eliminate your internal fat altogether. Your vital organs need some fat for protection which cushions them to prevent injuries or damage. People that rely on diet to maintain their weight rather than combining it with exercise are likely to have major internal fat deposits even if they appear to be slim on the outside.

This just shows that regular exercise in conjunction with a regulated diet is important to an overall healthy lifestyle. Exercise doesn’t mean you have to invest in hours at the gym. It could be anything from indoor/outdoor sports, jogging outside, rollerblading, hiking and many more fun alternatives.

kyle-nissen-freestyle-ski

This Canadian hottie started on skis when he was only 3 years old. When Kyle was 8, he was lucky enough to get to carry the Olympic torch in the relay, considering it was right in his home town of Calgary in 1988. The next year, when Kyle was 9, he started freestyle skating. Almost 20 years later, he’s still doing it and from holding the Olympic torch when he was 9, to competing in his second Winter Olympic games here in Vancouver after competing in Torino, Kyle’s dreams keep coming true.

Here are some of his stats:

Event: Freestyle skiing
Age: 30
Hometown: Calgary
Achievements: 5th place, 2006 Olympic Games in Torino
Competing On: February 22, 2010

Kyle is dead set on Gold, given the opportunity of having Canada host the Olympics once again, and him being a part of it:

Competing for Canada at those Games has been the highlight of my career and a truly amazing experience. Now to have Canada hosting the Games once again, there is nothing else on my mind other than winning gold for Canada at the Games in Vancouver in 2010. An opportunity like this only comes along once in a lifetime, and I intend to do everything in my power to be on that podium.

Check out Kyle holding the torch when he was 8, as well as some recent hot pics after the jump!

stefan-read-shirtless-ski

Read, 22, competed in the 2006 Olympics, but since then he has been competing on the World Cup circuit, and has become a leader on the team. His best result in the World Cup so far is a 23rd place at Zakopane in 2006. I guess you have to weigh very little to be a ski jumper, considering he only weighs 132 lbs. Well, he looks great with his shirt off so you won’t hear me complaining. Surprisingly, he is the first Canadian since 1991 to earn world ranking points, and has multiple top 30 finishes.

Here are some of Read’s stats:

Born: May 7, 1987
Birthplace: Edmonton, Alberta
Residence: Calgary, AB
Height: 5’9″
Weight: 132 lbs
Events: LH Individual, NH Individual, LH Team

The Canadian 2010 Ski Jumping Team for this year’s Olympics consist of Stefan Read, Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes, Trevor Morrice, both 18, and Eric Mitchell, 17. Read is the only one who has been to the Olympics before, having competed in Turin.

bode-miller-hot-athlete

This Libra is an American Alpine Skier, and his name is Bode Miller. I have to tell you, writing this “Hot Olympic Athletes” has really made me SO much more aware as to the “who’s who” of sports. I mean, I love watching sports and playing sports, but I don’t follow sports you know? It’s too much commitment and memorization that I’d rather not get delve into.

Here are some of Miller’s stats:

Sport: Alpine Skiing
Birthdate: October 12, 1977
Residence: Sugar Hill, NH
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 209 lbs
Olympics: 2006, 2002, 1998

Although, this hunk is popular in sports in terms of his success, he’s thumbs down when it comes to the press. One report referred to him as “a tedious bore given to statements that smack of hypocrisy.” Ouch! Another one said that his behavior had alienated him from “pretty much everyone but those who mindlessly celebrate rebels simply for their rebellion, however misplaced it might be.” So…he’s a bad ass, huh? Grool.

Grooming Tips From Head to Toe

In: Redd, Sports & Health
hot-guy-facial-hair

I know to each their own when it comes to grooming. Some guys like to keep everything neat and tidy while some prefer to go a little more au natural. I myself like keeping everything neatly groomed from eyebrows down to my leg hairs. So here are some tips on how to go about doing it the neat way should you prefer to do so. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they take care of themselves and their grooming habits. Attention to details says a lot. Pictures shown are examples of when you should look into manscaping.

1. Eyebrows

brows

Bushy eyebrows can be sexy provided that they are tamed. First thing’s first, make sure that you don’t have a mono/uni brow by tweezing or waxing the area (don’t shave it because nobody wants to see stubble there). Next use an eyebrow brush and sweep the brows upwards and with a pair of small scissors, cut any long stray hairs. If your eyebrows are particularly thick, I would suggest having them professionally done to ensure that you don’t take too much off leaving yourself with “chola” type eyebrows.
