Considering Dan Carter has almost 40,000 fans on Facebook, I’m surprised that I haven’t highlighted him as a Sports Stud until now. The 30-year-old is a rugby player from New Zealand and is regarded as one of rugby’s greatest ever fly-halves.
Outside of Rugby, he models for Jockey underwear on billboards worldwide, has been voted sexiest New Zealand male, and was once even voted 11th for Sexiest Men in The World by E! in the U.S. He has also been a spokesmodel for Daikin heat pumps as well as Philips electric shavers. I’ve included a video he did with Philips below – that way you can hear his sexy accent as well!
In 2011, he got married to Honor Dillon, whom he had dated for quite some time. A fun fact is that he is a pisces (like me). He’s got a great body, great smile, and he seems to fill out those Jockey underwear quite nicely. I can definitely see why he’s done so well in modelling and being a spokesmodel. He’s great at it! Check out his sexy pictures (and a video) below!
For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to highlight NFL hottie, Rob Gronkowski who is currently on the cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine for the October 2012 Issue. The 23-year-old is a tight end (hehe) for the New England Patriots and is a towering 6’6″ and 265 lbs. In June of this year, “Gronk” signed a six-year, $54 million contract extension which included an $8 million signing bonus, but leaves the 2012 and 2013 seasons of his rookie contract intact. Not too shabby!
He has so many hot pictures which I’ve included below, but one of my favorite things I’m sharing with you is in the form of a video. When ask who he’d “Marry, Bury, or F*ck” between Tim Tebow, Betty White and Rex Ryan, he chose to eff Tebow so he could take his virginity! Hot! Check out the pictures and his funny comment below.
This week I decided to highlight ironman and five-time Coolangatta Gold champion Caine Eckstein from Australia. Surprisingly, I think this is the first ironman I’ve selected for a Sports Stud. This year, he competed in the Kellogg’s Nutri Grain Series (which he won), Australian Surf Life Saving Championships and also trained for some long distance ski paddling events. He is currently training for the Kona Ironman in Hawaii that takes place this coming October, followed by the Xterra World Championship race that happens two weeks after in Maui.
In addition to his regular competitions, the 26-year old was a finalist in this year’s Cleo Bachelor of the Year and a competitor in the most recent season of Australia’s Dancing With The Stars.
When you are an ironman, naturally your body is in tip-top shape – and his is. An ironman race is comprised of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bike and a marathon 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run, raced in that order and without a break. When you see his photos below, you’ll see just how incredible and chiseled his body is. Clearly it takes so much discipline and hard work to compete in the ironman, and clearly he’s got what it takes. Very inspiring!
This week’s Sports Stud is Francesco Totti, an Italian footballer / soccer player who is the captain of Serie A club Roma. This 35-year-old has spent his entire career at Roma, is the number-one goalscorer and the most capped player in the club’s history. Not only is considered as one of the finest players in his generation, he’s also considered Roma’s greatest player ever. Not too shabby!
He and his wife Ilary Blasi are often referred to as the Italian Beckhams. His wife used to be a showgirl but has since been the has been a co-host of Italia 1’s hit show Le Iene since 2007.
I’m actually surprised that I haven’t highlighted him as a Sports Stud before. He is one hot soccer player and when he’s on the beach, his package can barely be contained within his speedos. He is one “Hottie Totti” if you as me. Enjoy the pictures below!
This week, I decided to focus on a cute 24-year old English professional boxer named Ashley Sexton. He made his professional debut back in 2008 and is the holder of the English flyweight title and has also competed for the full British title. Flyweight is a category in boxing where the boxers weigh above 108 lb (49 kg) and up to 112 lb (52 kg) – light little buggers!
Other than boxing stats, I wasn’t able to find a lot about him,but from what I gathered, he does seem to have a great group of friends that all love to have a good time. Also, from what I gathered from Twitter, he fancies older woman and Janice Dickinson is right up his alley – or he’s right up hers, depending on which way you look at it.
Anyway, he seems like a cool guy. Check out some of his pictures and videos below!
This week’s Sports Stud is a sexy 25-year-old rugby player from the United Kingdom named Danny Care. We first introduced you to him as part of the 2011 Rugby’s Finest Calendar ensemble, but today I wanted to focus on him specifically.
He plays for Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership, primarily playing at scrum-half but he can also operate in the fly-half role. He actually just signed a new three year contract with them so he’ll be with them until at least 2016.
He first started playing rugby when he was just 6-years-old and never stopped since. He’s a bit of a bad boy and has had a few instances with the law involving alcohol or disorderly conduct, but he has cleaned up his act and even given up drinking to really commit to his career. Check out his sexy pictures below.
This week I wanted to keep two things in mind when selecting Sports Stud. (1) I wanted to make sure he wasn’t just in the Summer Olympics – after all, we’ve just spent the last two weeks highlighting them every day. (2) The second factor was that they had to be really hot. Again, after all of those super sexy Olympic Hotties, the bar is pretty high.
With that, this week’s Sports Stud is 27-year-old Sonny Bill Williams from New Zealand. He is a rugby union player, heavyweight boxer and former rugby league player. He plays for the Chiefs in the 2012 Super Rugby season was also a member of the All Blacks squad that won the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Switching over to boxing, since 2009 he has boxed five times and won all five of the heavywight bouts. At this time, he is the New Zealand Professional Boxing Association (NZPBA) Heavyweight Champion.
Aside from all of his success in sports, he’s been quite a bad boy off the field and out of the ring, making headlines with a sex scandal, urinating in public, skiing while on injury leave, and drinking & driving. His bad boy image is complete with some sexy tattoos which I’m sure you’ll enjoy. Check out his pictures below!
Once again, thanks to another reader who “threw” this hottie at us as a suggested Olympic Hottie of the Day – an excellent choice!
Today’s featured athlete is Andreas Thorkildsen from Norway. The 30-year-old is the first male javelin thrower in history to be European champion, World champion and Olympic champion. He started throwing when he was only 11-years old and has since been an Olympic champion in 2004 and 2008, and the odds are that he is about to be the champion once again now at London 2012 at the Javelin Finals tomorrow (August 11). He is leading the pack right now in the race for the Gold medal, but in the Olympics (and in Big Brother) you have to “expect the unexpected”.
Check out some of his sexy shirtless pictures below and be sure to watch what will likely be a gold medal-winning performance tomorrow!
