At the LA Memorial Coliseum -
"A pair of life-sized bronze statues of male and female athletes atop a 20,000 pound (9,000 kg) post-and-lintel frame formed the Olympic Gateway created by Robert Graham for the 1984 games. The statues, modeled on water polo player Terry Schroeder and sprinter Jackie Joyner-Kersee who participated in the games, were noted for their anatomical accuracy."
The guy was modeled after a water polo player.
Although, on a personal note, I've seen far too many polo players in my life - I'll take a hot rugger any day ;)
