Every four years, red-blooded gay men supplement our Olympic fandom with a strong dose of male hotness. Team USA may have our hearts, but these international competitors are laying claim to other body parts.
David Atlanta magazine dives deep into the hottest athletes of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio in next Wednesday’s issue, but they’re giving us a sneak peek in time for Opening Ceremonies. The feature pays particular attention to the men of Team USA – the jocks of Team USA from 2012 still make us tingle – but it also sizes up the hottest competition from other countries. While we wait on that, here are a few of the magazine's picks for foreign Olympic trade that merit keeping an eye out.
And speaking of Olympic hunks, swim jock Ryan Lochte crashed in Atlanta for a few days on his way to Rio. He showed off his abs and got his hair did.
