Gay pulses quickened on Saturday for one of the last times as the Olympic men’s freestyle wrestling competitors helped gay fans bid a protracted farewell to the bulges of London 2012.
Let’s face it, at least on the face of it, wrestling looks pretty damn gay, and we don’t mind a bit. Team USA’s Jordon Burroughs and Coleman Scott and took home gold and bronze medals in their respective weight classes, and U.S. wrestling studs Sam Hazewinkel and Jake Herbert were knocked out of medal contention in pre-final matches.
The results weren’t nearly as fun as the quarter, semi and final eye-candy journey. That goes for the whole of the Olympics, which have made for a fortnight of hotness. We add wrestling’s little guys and big boys working each other over to our Olympics obsession with tights, onesies, rowing trou and running shorts in the Morning Fix. Forget that gay rowing coach who tells Olympic bulge fans that crotch-watching takes away from the Olympic experience. We beg to differ.
As we say goodbye to London 2012, don’t miss toned and sexy gold and bronze diving medalist David Boudia, beefy U.S. decathlete Trey Hardee, silver fox Yordan Yovchev, German discus thrower Robert Harting, the bulging biceps of Tommy Ramos, the nearly nude pics of Danell Leyva and his gymnast jock friends John Orozco, Sam Mikulak, Jake Dalton and Jonathan Horton.
