Australian Olympic Swimmer James Magnussen For Samsung
Are You Loving The Summer Olympics Or What?
Unlike many reports here in the US, I would not claim that watching the London Olympics is like watching porn … the lack of speedo in the American culture is making some heads over-heat around here. I mean come on if you think a guy in a speedo = porn … it’s a bit ridic!
That being said, it is for sure a pleasant thing to watch on top of the atheltic performances.
Not to mention the underwater cameras who are capturing some fun times … a speedo is more convenient than baggy shorts to swim around (even if you are not an athlete) but it has is downside … it can sleep right off your butt in no time. It happened to me at the beach several times but when it happens during the Olympics in front of an audience it is for sure another deal 😉
I do agree that some people are enjoying an over-time under the shower in front of the cameras … this kids is very, very aware of his audience … maybe it’s just me and it is just because Tom Daley was named as the Ambassador of adidas Body Care before the games!
By the way I would like to take the opportunity to publicly thank Stella McCartney for making such an amazing speedo for the UK team! which according to this article was Stella’s biggest challenge.
“There wasn’t a lot of space to work on to apply the print!” … “so many different bodies, so many different shapes and sizes,” (Ok I am not sure she was just talking about the speedos here … but rather to the uniforms 😉 Job well done Stella! More images from the Olympic pools after the jump.
Ok, I may not think that speedo = porn but I do think that US Gymnast Jake Dalton (below) has this je ne sais quoi of like Bel Ami actor/performer Lukas Ridgeston …
More after the jump.
