What are those things they're holding?  Are they supposed to be water droplets?

all right let's just get one of the most obvious hotties started (because I'm pretty sure he's going to be one of the most discussed guys on this thread):

I predict they will be smaller during the games.  Did you watch the US Olympic trials?  I thought we might have a wardrobe malfunction; the suits are tinier than ever.

That makes up for the full body armor that the swimmers wear.

My favorite thread! I can't wait to pick out my Olympic boyfriend. 2012 featured Nathan Adrian for me.

Cursory look: Jake Dalton, Sam Mikulak (but oh so short - I'm 5'9"), Madison Hughes, Matt Anderson (but why the beard? He has a fantastic jawline. Fun fact- we matched on Bumble a few months back).

J'adore this traditional thread.  Does anyone else miss the "Faster - Higher - Hotter" title from TWOP days?

Yay, my most favorite thread in the world is back! Those TWoP Olympic threads were the best and such a nice distraction from the daily work grind.

Ah, man. I'm getting old. These guys are cute but look like babies. I'd feel like a pedophile if I started lusted after any of them. Maybe it's because I have a teenage boy, and these athletes aren't much older than he is. *sigh* What a waste of nice abs.

I feel a bit of the same way - I'm 28 and they are only 3 years younger or so than me though. I feel like I'm getting old.

I'll take Sam off of your hands :) I'm only 4'10" so he's perfect (so long as he grows out that horrible flag cut-out in the side of his hair...)

Thumbs up on Matt Anderson and he is from my hometown!!

Love that this thread started with one of the all time hotties, Alexandre Despatie.

Camille Lacourt's competing in men's 100m backstroke. (Google's added a feature this Olympics where any search for an athlete who's competing will show you what events they're in as the top result.)

In related news, Ning Zetao is competing for China in two men's freestyle events.

I always think of this when it comes to Lochte:

That's what I think of too. He might be the best description of just sit there and look pretty.

All credit to him, then, for playing Nina Arianda's "sex idiot" on that episode of 30 Rock. The joke of that role was exactly "don't even try, just stand there and look pretty."

I was coming to post this. I seriously love it. Good ole' Ry-Ry 

I went to the Olympic swim trials.  Ryan seemed to be carrying a bit of pudge in his mid-sections.  And by pudge, I mean excellent shape, but not as toned as I'm used to an Olympic swimmer being.

Women's Fencing silver medalist: Rossella Fiamingo. Sadly, swimwear is not involved in the actual event.

Truly a crime...

As a woman, I feel I should complain about the tiny beach volleyball 'uniforms' -- BUT on the other hand, we got the men's diving 'how low can you go' Speedos, so... equal opportunity ogling.  :)

Was kinda mesmerized by Adam Peaty's chest in swimming:

Bonus points for being a redhead. :)

I hate volleyball. It was always the one sport in PE I abhorred. And then I saw the US men's indoor team today. Wow. Special shoutout to 

Matt Anderson and Aaron Russell. Micah Christenson is also adorable, but more in a "I want to feed him tea and cookies: kind of way.

It has been decided. My Olympics boyfriend for Rio is Nicola Philippaerts (Belgian Equestrian competitor).  He's so pretty.  And he has an identical twin brother if anyone wants to join me :)

U.S. Male Gymnasts Want to Be Objectified 

Quote

So the men’s team has been brainstorming ways to market their sport better. They would like to be objectified.

“Maybe compete with our shirts off,” said U.S. star Sam Mikulak, the four-time, reigning all-around national champion. “People make fun of us for wearing tights. But if they saw how yoked we are maybe that would make a difference.”

They could go old-school Olympics and compete in the nude.  Pommel horse might be a bit tricky, though...

Of course.  "Gymnastics" comes from the Greek word for "naked," after all (γύμνος).

Well, I always check out men's gymnastics; rings are insane! Maybe tighter pants?
