Yeah . . . who says they're the WRONG reasons? The seem so RIGHT to me.
Don't get me wrong: I LOVE sports and competition, but in a boring game and even in a great game there are interspersed momentary digressions in my mind to "DAMN, what a bod on him" or, more often, DAMN, that's a helluva package on him!"
I never miss gymnastics, nor wrestling, for both the skills sets, and the bods.
Gymnasts are just body weight body builders, with some great skills. Wrestlers (collegiate and Olympic) run a move thousands of times, and are usually a move or two ahead in their game. Ever watch Cael Sanderson nearly giggle just before he slams his opponent to the mat? (He was SO GOOD.)
It's a shame that wrestling, one of the most ancient of sports, is being pulled from The Olympics.
The body lines of gymnasts and wrestlers are about as good as they get, right there with bodybuilders, without all the juice and calories.
Swimmers are unbalanced in the back and with long limbs, but, nothing to take away from they're being true athletes.
This is the sort of guy I love tucking in:
Clean cut, perfect lines, lean, truly muscular, strong, articulate, and strikingly good looking. Oh....my...I feel very gay. LOL.
Having been in gyms for nearly 4 decades, I've met a number of exceptional athletes, including Olympic Gold medalists. They are amazing athletes. Many are also amazing people.
