With a movie star smile and the body of an Olympic swimmer, Ricky Berens is easy on the eyes. The gold medals add to his sexy allure, as does his booty-popping swimsuit malfunction.
Berens, a Southern guy from Charlotte, won gold in the 2008 Summer Olympics in the 4x200-meter freestyle with Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Peter Vanderkaay. His wardrobe malfunction a year later – yep, his entire muscled booty ripped through his swimsuit – put him on our Morning Fix radar.
And then last week, he nailed gold again in London with Phelps, Lochte and Conor Dwyer. He’s certainly earned his place among our Olympic-inspired Fixes, including the jocks of Team USA, gymnast Danell Leyva’s nearly nude pics and his other sexy photos, the U.S. men’s gymnastics squad, diving jock Troy Dumals and Lochte.
For the Brits, there’s diver Tom Daley, Louis Smith and Sam Oldham, both gymnasts.
There’s also gay Aussie hottie Matthew Mitcham – he’s hit the Fix here, here and here, too. And the Australian swim team with Eamon Sullivan, James Roberts, James Magnussen and Matt Targett.
