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!
Who else is going through swimming withdrawal? The second week of the Olympics isn’t the same without my nightly fix of hot guys with swimmer builds. Since quitting cold turkey is never a good idea, I thought I’d drool over the Olympic swimmers one more time. I figure if divers, gymnasts and wrestlers were all ranked on Homorazzi, it was about time swimmers did as well.
Given that there are way too many swimmers to go through, I decided to base my Top 15 Hottest Male Swimmers rankings solely on those who won a medal at the 2012 London Olympics. If they didn’t make the podium, they weren’t in contention. So, please no angry comments how I erroneously neglected your favorites. That said, I would love to know which swimmers were your favorites that didn’t win a medal. It doesn’t hurt to look at gorgeous also-rans. Without further ado, let the games begin.
First of all, a special shout out to one of our readers, Alex, who suggested Jared Connaughton as an Olympic Hottie of the Day, saying, “Pure Canadian grade ‘A’ beef!” I couldn’t agree more!
Connaughton is a 27-year-old Canadian Sprinter from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he competed in the 200m and 4x100m relay for Canada where his team placed 6th in relay and he placed 14th in the Semifinal competition. Unfortunately, yesterday he placed 7th in the semi final for the 200m and is missing out on the final. He may not be done in London just yet though. Canada’s final four racers for the 4x100m relay have not been announced but he’s hopeful he’ll be a part of it. The first relay takes place tomorrow (Friday).
Check out some of his photos below and be sure to keep an eye out for him during the relays on Friday. Fingers crossed he’ll be running!
Having focused so much on all of the male hotties from Diving, Gymnastics and Wrestling for the last little while, I thought I’d focus on the Athletics category and highlight a hottie from the Men’s 110m Hurdles. Meet 27-year-old Emanuele Abate from Italy.
Today, he is competing in the Semifinals of the Men’s 110m Hurdles. Not only should his competitors watch out for his speed and agility, but so should crooks back in Italy. That’s right, Abate is a police officer as well and therefore no bad guys are going to outrun this guy!
Check out some of his sexy pictures below and be sure to watch for him in today’s races! Oh, and I’ve also included a video montage someone created of him that you should check out as well.
With the popularity of Donovan’s 15 Hottest Male Divers and 15 Hottest Male Gymnasts articles, I figured it was only fitting to throw the 15 Hottest Male Wrestlers into the mix – especially since there are several wrestling events going on recently, including today.
Now before we get into it, I want to reiterate what Donovan said in his last post. There are many hot athletes competing in several different sports, but this post will only be highlighting Greco-Roman Wrestling. Furthermore, there are only 15 spots and I could spend days deciding on what order to put them in and which other guys to include, but I don’t have that kind of time. I encourage you to post the names of your favorite Olympic wrestlers in the comments as there is no doubt that I may have missed some good ones that would (like in dramatic Olympic-style) bump one of the existing guys out.
Check out the pictures of the 15 guys I have narrowed it down to below and for fun, vote for your favorite. Enjoy!
For today’s Olympic Hottie, you’re getting two for one as I highlight two brothers from France that are both athletes competing in Greco-Roman Wrestling at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London: Christophe Guenot (33) and Steeve Guenot (26).
Christophe (who competes in the 74 kg category) has already competed and although a medal winner in past Olympics (Bronze in Beijing 2008), he didn’t make the podium this year. Steeve (who competes int he 66 kg category) on the other hand will be competing tomorrow (August 7). He’s definitely one to beat considering he won the Gold Medal in his category at the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
Both of these guys are very hot and have participated in the sexy Dieux Du Stade calendars… Yum!
Since my previous post ranking the Top 15 Hottest Male Gymnasts proved so popular and surprisingly controversial, I thought I’d objectify divers next. Before I begin, I just wanted to address several comments I received on my last post.
First of all, I want to reiterate I’m ranking only divers in this post. I was shocked by the number of comments informing me I forgot their favorite athletes who weren’t even gymnasts on my previous list. People… read the title. Please no comments how I erroneously snubbed so and so from other sporting disciplines like track and field, swimming, etc. LOL.
Secondly, I love the fact that people only see race in these frivolous posts. It’s funny how people lump people who aren’t Asian or black into the white category. And PS, I’m not a potato (Asian on the outside and white on the inside) as accused by some of you. If anything, I’m Asian on the outside and black on the inside. Just ask my friends about my vernacular when I’m tipsy or watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta ;)
Thirdly, I’m not American, but rather Canadian. That rebuffs a claim by a couple of you who thought my hottest gymnast was based solely on patriotism. Jake Dalton is hot no matter what country he’s from. That being said, my pick for hottest diver is based partially on national pride. LOL. Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, check out my picks for the Top 15 hottest divers competing at the 2012 London Olympics.
Now that the men’s team competition is over, I thought it was the perfect time to objectify the London 2012 Olympic male gymnasts. Like many of you, I’ve been glued to my television the past few days marveling at their death-defying tricks and display of tremendous strength. That said, I did find it hard to stay focused on their routines sometimes given how hot a few of them are. My mind tended to wander off to la la land. And by la la land, you know what I mean.
Even though the first set of medals have been handed out at the North Greenwich Arena, there is still plenty of men’s gymnastics left on the program. You have the individual all-around plus all the apparatus events to contest. If you haven’t seen some of my ranked studs as of yet, you’ll definitely be seeing them in the coming days. Without further ado, let the hottie Olympics begin.
