Hottest Swimmers at the Olympics

With the swimming events coming to a close, we thought it only appropriate to select the hottest pool-bound athletes of the 2012 games. As excited as we are for the rest of the events, and the closing ceremony, one thing is for sure- we will be missing these bodies. Until 2016, boys!
A recent video composed of interviews with Ryan Lochte has us believing he may not be the brightest swimmer at the aquatic center (watch here), but when it comes to good looks, Lochte’s at the top of his game. As for the hottest bodies, Michael Phelps definitely deserves a mention – the fact that he’s now the most decorated Olympian in history doesn’t hurt either!
While we couldn’t help but laugh at Chris Mears’ dancing in the GB swim team’s version of “I’m Sexy and I Know it” video (watch it here). . . neither his abs nor his pre-Olympic training tan went unnoticed. South African stud, Chad le Clos, caught our attention from the podium after catching a couple of medals for his country, while Tom Daley won us over during the last games in Beijing, – except only now he’s 18!
Medal bearing teammates, Josh Boudia and Nick McCrory, and Conor Dwyer and Ricky Berens all put on aesthetically pleasing displays this year. . . in and out of the pool.
American Nathan Adrian won us over with his boyish good looks and while Aussie James Magnussen might’ve had a rough go of it at the games, at least he looked hot doing it!
