The Olympics are in ten days! I’m so excited, you guys! These are the five hotties athletes I’ve got my eye on this summer.
Ryan Lochte The 27 year old swimmer from Daytona Beach, FL graduated from University of Florida in 2007 with a degree in Sports Management. During his senior year he won individual titles in all three of his events, setting U.S. Open and American records in the 200-yard individual medley and the 200-yard backstroke. He also broke Tom Dolan’s nearly decade-old NCAA record in the 400-yard individual medley. He was a part of the 2004 and 2008 Olympics teams. I remember noticing the dreamy guy next to Michael Phelps while watching religiously in 2008. I have a feeling that all eyes will be on him this year!
David Boudia The 23 year old diver from Noblesville, IN will graduate from Purdue University in 2013 with a major in Communications. He’s been diving since 2000, has been on the national team since 2005, and was a member of the 2008 Olympic team. He’s the first American to break 600 points in six dives. I watched the trials on TV when they were up here a few weeks ago. He’s super cute and totally impressive. I think diving is my favorite Olympic sport to watch.
Giuseppe Lanzone The 30 year old rower was born in La Punta, Peru, but calls Annandale, VA is hometown. He graduated from University of Washington (My school!!!) in 2005 with a degree in Communications. He’s been rowing since he was 12, but didn’t really get involved until his junior year of high school while living in Virginia. He won a ton of races and medals while rowing for UW and he’ll be joined by two of his college teammates at the Olympics: Scott Gault and Brett Newlin. Go Huskies!
Jake Dalton The 21 year old gymnast was born and raised in Reno, NV and studies Human Relations at University of Oklahoma. He won the NCAA men’s gymnastics floor and vault titles in 2011, the US National Vault champion in 2009 and 2011, the Floor Champion in 2011, and he was the All-Around Gold medalist of the Winter Cup Challenge in 2011. He’s a winner, ya’ll.
And now for my favorite…
Nathan Adrian The 23 year old swimmer is from Bremerton, WA. My hometown! I grew up with this guy! I’ve been friends with his older sister since middle school. And their brother was my sister’s first boyfriend. Awwww. All three of them were very involved in swimming and went on to compete at college level (Donella at Arizona State and University of Puget Sound, and Justin at University of Washington, where they were both team captains). Nathan graduated from UC Berkeley in 2006 with a degree in Public Health and was a part of the 2008 Olympic team. He currently holds the record in the 50 and 100-yard freestyle events. He has won a total of twelve medals: ten gold, one silver, and one bronze spanning the Olympics, the World, and the Pan Pacific Championships. Root for my boy!
By the way, it’s a little awkward posting pictures of his nearly naked body.
He’s hot, but he’s my friend’s little brother. It was even more awkward when I showed
her the gay celebrity gossip website that claims he is their new crush.
If these fellas didn’t give you a reason to tune in, I don’t know what will.
