    Olympics + gayness = a topic where everyone contributes pictures of their favorite athletes.

    I have way too many favorites, so I'll limit myself to one per post.

    First up: US Swimmer Michael Phelps

    Oooh. Alexandre is awesome.

    I know I'm being a bit US centric, but I have to put up Shawn Crawford -- of the 200 meter -- before I start moving around the world...

    All the athletes are my favourites but here is a pic of Gregor Tait, the British Swimmer. I just liked the photo so thought I would share it.

    Sadly, I'm WAY too challenged to figure out how to insert a photo here (LOSER!!), but here's a URL good for some shots of Greco-Roman Wrestler Brad Vering.

    OK,he retired quite a long time ago.But he will always be one of my favourite athletes of all time.He is the one who light up the major torch in the Opening Ceremony for Beijing.His name is Li Ning.He was considered one of the best in Gymnastic Competition history and one of the most famous athletes in China.He is most famous for winning 6 medals at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics(the most by a single person that year I believe), including 3 gold medals (in floor exercise, pommel horse, and rings), 2 silver medals, and a bronze medal. In 1982, he won six of the seven gold medals awarded at the Sixth World Cup Gymnastic Competition(which is also a record I suppose ), earning him the title "Prince of gymnastics".

    He is now a very successful businessman and owns a brand same as his name which sells footwear and sporting apparel in China.The brand is the most popular in China,kinda like chinese version of Nike & Adidas in some way.

    I`m VERY proud of him and will always be a huge fan of his.Although he`s not fit as before,he is still one of my biggest idol.

    That would be Raj Bhavsar who has the most amazing arms in all of the olympics.

    Agree about Raj. I melt when I see him. Here's another from the 2004 games. He's even hotter today.

    And here's the darkly handsome and hot Romanian gymnast, Marian Dragulescu. Be still my heart.

    And China's Yang Wei is both adorable and hot. None of the Chinese web sites seem to have hi res pictures of their athletes. If anyone can find a higher res picture of Yang Wei, I would be in your debt!

    First off, there's gotta be tons of pics at outsports.com and towleroad.com...

    Ok, I got these images from an email I have, so I just realized not all of them are from the Olympics, but I hope they are Olympic-themed. These are real jocks!

    BTW, maybe another topic here, but does anyone know what guys like the gymnasts and the other Olympic athletes wear for underwear? I mean, the gymnasts, in their long pants and shorts... Those shorts look like they're wearing nothing underneath... Jockstraps? icon_smile.gif
