Bonjour, Monsieur Gourcuff! For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to feature French soccer player Yoann Miguel Gourcuff. A few years ago back in 2010, I featured him as a World Cup Hottie Of The Day but feel that he’s definitely worthy of a new post. As previously mentioned, his mom was a basketball player, his older brother (Erwan) is a competitive swimmer & cyclist, and his dad was a former footballer who played for several clubs/countries – thus, he followed in his papa’s footsteps.
The 27-year-old mainly plays midfield (which is what I play mostly – requires A LOT of running) but sometimes plays striker. He currently plays for French club Olympique Lyonnais.
Back in 2008, France Gay magazine Têtu named him “Bomb of the Month.” The gay mag referred to his “doe eyes, rebellious locks, and tapering thighs. He had succeeded Cristiano Ronaldo for this title in Têtu. Check out some photos of Gourcuff below!
For this week’s Sport Stud, I decided to highlight another sexy Canadian NHL Hockey Player. Joffrey Lupul plays as alternate captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs and plays left wing. Other teams he has played on include Anaheim Ducks, Edmonton Oilers, and the Philadelphia Flyers.
Last year, Lupul was nominated for the Masterton Trophy after he put up 67 points in 66 games after recovering from back surgery and a blood infection. Outside of Hockey, Lupul enjoys playing guitar and dresses like a million bucks. Seriously, he’s a stud on and off the ice.
Lupul is incredibly handsome and in amazing shape. In fact, he was included in this year’s Naked Issue of ESPN’s Bodies We Want. I’ve included the ice-melting photos from that shoot below.
This week’s Sports Stud is from the world of men’s gymnastics and is none other than Sam Mikulak. We previously included the 20-year-old in our Hottest Male Gymnasts Of The 2012 Summer Olympics post last year but now he gets a feature of his own.
Mikulak is certainly proving to be one to watch for in men’s gymnastics. Earlier this year, he won the Big Ten and NCAA title and just a few weeks ago backed that up with winning the title at the 2013 P&G Championships, the biggest meet since the 2012 Olympics. After this competition, the Men’s Senior Team was officially announced and needless to say, Mikulak made the cut.
Mikulak, who attends the University of Michigan, has had a great year so far and I’m sure there’s more to come. Check out his photos and videos from his most recent competition below.
For this week’s Sport Stud, I’ve decided to highlight the extremely handsome and talented Vancouver Whitecaps soccer player, Jordan Harvey. I recently had the opportunity of meeting him through his lovely and equally talented girlfriend Kimberly Caldwell, whom I’m grateful to have gotten to know over the past couple weeks. Some of you may recall that Donovan interviewed her while in LA in the past. Expect more on Kim soon in the very near future with her new album coming out and more exciting news!
Harvey is originally from Mission Viejo, California but now resides in Vancouver with Caldwell while he plays for the Whitecaps. After starting out playing for Strikers FC, Harvey then played for the University of California, Los Angeles for four years from 2002 to 2005. In college, he also played with Orange County Blue Star in the USL Premier Development League. In 2006, he was drafted by the Colorado Rapids and in 2009 was taken on by Philadelphia Union. In 2011, he was transferred to Vancouver Whitecaps with whom he currently plays.
Last week, Harvey and Caldwell spent time on Vancouver Island to support the Hope and Health Charity Event. The two performed a couple songs together at the opening ceremonies and had a great time with all of the kids participating in the event while supporting a great cause. These two make the cutest couple! Check out some photos of Harvey below and stay tuned for interviews with both him and Kim soon!
All week it’s been hot, hot, hot where I reside in Vancouver so I’ve decided to cool things off with a sexy hockey player while we are in the off season. I’ve chosen to feature 34-year old Andrew Ference of the NHL Edmonton Oilers. The fellow Canadian has played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Calgary Flames and Boston Bruins. When the Bruins won the Stanley Cup in, Ference was on the team.
As previously mentioned, Ference now plays for the Edmonton Oilers and he was actually born in Edmonton, Alberta as well – but grew up in Sherwood Park, Alberta. He recently signed on with the team for four years and $13 million. Ference is married and has two kids and worked with David Suzuki to create a carbon-neutral program for the NHL so the league could offset their carbon footprint.
Check out his photos below!
For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to highlight on of the sexy models/athletes features in ESPN’s Bodies We Want Issue for 2013 – NFL Quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. The 25-year-old hottie is the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, towering at 6’5″ and weighing 230 lbs.
Kaepernick has already been praised for his performance and improvement this season. He credits this to what he did in his off season training. I’ve included a video below about what it involved, but he also said this to the BleacherReport: “I trained with a few Olympic runners and jumpers. Just to try to get a little bit faster, a little bit better. Anything I could do to try to get a little bit better and stay ahead of the competition. I think the biggest thing was the form of running and how to be more efficient when I run. I feel like that has helped me to this point, and its something I’m trying to improve on more and more, but I think those few weeks with them were very valuable.”
Kaepernick has several tattoos on his arms and chest, many of which contain Biblical verses (he was baptized Methodist, confirmed Lutheran, and attended a Baptist church during his college years). Check out his sexy photos (included the naked ESPN pictures) below.
With the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games taking place this week/weekend in Los Angeles, I felt it would be pertinent to highlight one of the athletes participating and competing for The Fittest On Earth. I’ve been watching the games on the live feeds all week and it’s truly incredible what these people are capable of. One of my coaches here in Vancouver even made it 12th in the Women’s 40-44 age category and I’m so proud of her!
For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve chosen to highlight Jason Khalipa, the man who is currently in the first place position after six events (The Pool, Row 1, Row 2, Burden Run, ZigZag Spring, and Legless). There are still five more events so it’s still anyone’s game (including past winner, Rich Froning Jr. who is currently in third place).
Khalipa is 27-years old, 5’9″ and 210 lbs. He’s the owner of NorCal CrossFit (which has 6 locations) and has been doing CrossFit since 2006. Khalipa won the 2008 World CrossFit Games and has competed and placed well ever since. He’s even been a guest coach on NBC’s The Biggest Loser. We wish him the best of luck with the remainder of the events! If you want to watch them live this weekend, the website is games.crossfit.com. In the meantime, check out his photos below.
You’re in for a treat with this week’s Sports Stud. I’ve chosen to tackle English rugby player, George Burgess because other than the fact that he’s super hot, he also got himself into a “nude scandal” this week when naked selfies of himself that he had sexted to someone surfaced online. They are hot, hot, hot and the photos have gone viral on the web as a result.
Burgess plays for the South Sydney Rabbitohs of the NRL and is 21-years old. He’s a major beefcake and has an incredible body. Other parts of his body are also sizeable… if you know what I mean. ;)
Check out the photos below and see what all the fuss is all about. Enjoy!
