Sure, we’re excited about cheering on our country, showing patriotic pride, yada yada yada, but what we’re really excited about for this year’s Summer Olympics is all of those well-muscled men! Unlike the Winter Olympics, when the fine fellas are hidden underneath layer after layer of parkas and gear, the summer heat allows us a much-appreciated glimpse at the physical pay-offs of all that strenuous training and exercise. From Speedo-sporting sirs like America’s own Ryan Lochte to international hotties like Italian fencer Aldo Montano, these ten medal men are more than enough reason to tune in to the games this summer!
We could have gone the typical route and plucked Lochte’s fellow Olympic medal-winning swimmer Michael Phelps from the USA team, but there’s something about this super hot New York-born, Florida-bred medal man that makes him stand out in the crowd. The six time Olympic medalist (three gold, two silver and one bronze) may not have 16 medals on his mantel like Phelps, but he is a two-time winner of the prestigious World Swimmer of the Year and American Swimmer of the Year awards, plus he’s become quite the cover boy, being one of only four men to ever cover Vogue and being titled “Hottest Summer Body of 2012″ by Men’s Health. Well-deserved!
