After three rounds of voting, we’re now down to the final round of the 2011 Sports Stud Showdown. You went through every single athlete that I wrote about this year and voted on your favorites. I have to say that the ones in this final list definitely do seem to have a loyal following. It will certainly be interesting to see who comes out on top. They are all worthy in my humble opinion. The athlete finalists include a handful of rugby players, a decathlete, a baseball player, a champion fighter, and a soccer player.
So how did these ten finalists earned their spots? Here’s how: The top two vote-getters from each of the three rounds automatically advanced to the finals. The remaining four wild card slots were given to the four highest vote-getters from all the rounds.
Each week I picked who I wanted to feature as the Sports Stud for the week, but you’ll be deciding who comes out on top! Pick your favorite Sports Stud for 2011 below. Vote for your favorites (and vote often) if you want them to win.
Last night, Round 1 of voting wrapped up for the Sports Stud 2011 Showdown, and as I mentioned in that previous post, the two top studs will move on to the final round after three rounds. The top hottie for Round 1 turned out to be sexy rugby player, Kayne Lawton. He actually made up a whopping 45% of the votes. Looks like Lawton’s got some loyal fans! Following his lead, in second place with 31% of the votes was the sexy Daniel Conn. Like Lawton, he is also a rugby player and the two of them don’t shy away from sexy photo shoots. I’m certain that definitely helps them in situations like this.
We now move into the second round of voting with a whole new batch of eye candy candidates – 16 more to be exact. These men were featured roughly between May and August of this past year, making my summer just a little bit hotter. I think you guys may have a bit more difficulty with these ones as there are many hot ones to choose from. Best of luck and enjoy!
This week’s Sports Stud is a super sexy 23 year old decathlete named Björn Barrefors. I figured I needed to take a break from the usual rugby or football players and pick a sport that wasn’t based on balls. Although there aren’t any balls being passed around for decathletes, there certainly balls are certainly lot exempt from this sport. I’ll get to that shortly.
Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Barrefors now studies and trains at the University of Nebraska and his major is computer science. I’m pretty sure he’s a sophomore now.
Considering he’s a decathlete (which as you probably already know, trains and competes in essentially all track events), I don’t have to tell you how in shape this guy is and how toned of a body he has.
Now back to the balls. In some of the sexy photos below, you can see his Swedish meatballs outlined by his unitard. I warn you, the following pics may make you Bjorny. Bon appetit!
