Gay jocks take part in Olympic trials

If you’re taking an air-conditioned break between treks this weekend to the Atlanta Pride Festival, flip on your television and catch a few minutes of the swimming portion of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

Among all the hotties – though full views of some will be obstructed thanks to the Speedo LZR Racer – are at least two openly gay competitors.

Brian Jacobson (photo), is taking part in the 50-meter freestyle and Andrew Langenfeld is competing in the 100-meter butterfly. Outsports recently profiled both swimmers and you can read those here and here.

NBC’s primetime coverage airs tonight at 8 p.m. Events continue throughout the weekend.
