We all know what is about to happen in the UK. We have seen the signs, heard Boris on the tube, and watched the Ab Fab special, and now it is here.
The Olympics. You know, that big hoo-haa with about 10,500 athletes from 205 nations running, swimming, cycling, sweating, cussing and cheering through events that are taking over London. All trying to win that gold medal, and not settling for silver or bronze.
So now we have it, two weeks of sport and hectic rides to wherever we want to be. Whilst we may be getting stressed on the tubes in the morning, or moaning about the Olympic lanes, or trying to help tourists go in the right direction, there is one thing to remember. Ladies and Gays, its all about...
The eye candy.
Whilst some people may not be interested in the sport, you can definately show interest in who is taking part. This is two weeks where we can get excited and drool at our TV screens at some of the hottest sport stars on the planet. Sculpted bodies, sportswear, adreneline and pretty faces, this is two weeks of free eye candy, and here are some of the highlights of who you can stare at!
Anthony Ogogo. UK
[caption id="attachment_1221" align="aligncenter" width="580"] Taking a pounding from him wouldn't be so bad![/caption]
Drool factor: 'Someone get some tissue.'
Apparently his nickname is 'Beautiful Brown Suga' which would fit nicely for this boxer. You can find him punching his way through the rounds from Saturday the 28th July at the ExCel centre.
Jesse Williams. USA
[caption id="attachment_1222" align="aligncenter" width="580"] How high can he get?[/caption]
Sport: Athletics, High Jump
Drool Factor: 'Careful not to get it on his lycra shorts.'
Being one of the best high jumpers in the world, you know you want to watch him bend over backwards in mid-air, then watching him scream adrenelin after he lands. Watch out for the vein-popping muscles on 5th August.
Phillip Boy. Germany
[caption id="attachment_1224" align="aligncenter" width="450"] Army Boy Phillip[/caption]
Sport: Artistic Gymnastics
Drool Factor: 'Someone pass a few more tissues.'
Not only is this guy a gymnast, he is also in the Army, and his mum sent him to gymnastics to use up excessive energy. Sergent Boy will be on your screens, taking up multiple positions, from 28th July.
[caption id="attachment_1229" align="aligncenter" width="580"] Oh Hello Boys[/caption]
Drool Factor: 'He can dribble anyday!'
Oscar. That's it. Just Oscar. This one name man will be playing keepy-uppie with the other Brazillians from the 28th July, practicing his ball skills and hopefully hitting the back of the net!
James Magnussen. Australia
[caption id="attachment_1232" align="aligncenter" width="580"] Anyone fancy skinny dipping?[/caption]
Sport: Swimming 50m and 100m Freestyle
Drool Factor: 'Anyone for some skinny dipping?'
Australia have sent over some pretty fine swimmers, most notably Mr Magnussen here. He is a lover of bodyboarding, and is nicknamed The Missile. He will be swimming his way to a medal from July 31st.
Ryan Lochte. USA
[caption id="attachment_1233" align="aligncenter" width="480"] Slighty condom-head[/caption]
Sport: Swimming 200m and 400m.
Drool Factor: 'Get me in the pool, right now.'
Not to be outdone by Australia, the USA sends us Ryan Lochte. This muscular swimmer may not be competing in the same swimming events, but put these two in the pool and you would be stuck for choice. You can drool over him from the 1st August.
Kenrick Monk. Australia
[caption id="attachment_1235" align="aligncenter" width="580"] Someone pass something cold to cool me down[/caption]
Sport: Swimming 200m.
Drool Factor: 'Screw the last two, this one is the winner.'
See, there are loads of eye candy in the pool this year. Just when you think America may have topped the Aussies, the Aussies come back with this bit of pleasure. You need to tune into the tv on the 29th July to see that body. It puts others to shame
Mark Cavendish. Great Britain
[caption id="attachment_1238" align="aligncenter" width="386"] Gayface or a pretty face?[/caption]
Drool Factor: 'Still thinking about those swimmers... Sorry'
Mark Cavendish, one of Englands best chances for a medal, has a slight gayface about him. Sure he is hot, has a wife and kids, and will be wearing the lycra, but that just makes you want to cheer him on more. He will be hitting our streets on July 28th. Get the gay flags out, he may just turn fot you.
Fabian Kauter. Switzerland
[caption id="attachment_1242" align="aligncenter" width="580"] Where is his sword ay?[/caption]
Drool Factor: 'Two boxes of tissues later, and I need some more!'
One guy, one sword. Meet Fabian, Switzerlands entry for the fencing competition. Not shy of a few photos, this guy wants to be the best (and best looking) whilst looking like a sword-holding sperm. That cute, boyish face can be seen on TV on 1st August. He may well be a lover of meat balls too.
Tom Daley. Great Britain
[caption id="attachment_1245" align="aligncenter" width="580"] *speechless*[/caption]
Drool Factor: 'Over-drooling, can't control it, not enough tissues.'
Tom Daley. The diver who makes girls scream, guys want that body, and gays want him (he is legal). You can't have a man candy list without this champion on it, and you know you will be tuning into the TV to see him pull all different kinds of positions from a 10m board. Who is his partner again? Who cares! He will be on the box on 30th July, and 10th August. DOUBLE WHAMMY.
So there we have it. There are soooo many athletes taking part that you are going to be flooded with eye candy, but hopefully these few pics will warm you up for the events.
All we need now is some gold medals for Team GB, and you to comment below on who you think is best of the bunch.
