Olympic Street Style
The games have begun and it seems like the entire world is watching London to see who takes home gold. Without a doubt the athletes that flock to the coliseums and stadiums are ready to challenge their opponents and do the best they can do. Through this training and dedication they have garnered some pretty decent physiques and are proud to show them off while at the games.
Today I am going to focus on the men’s water events because lets face it, shopping for a bathing suit is the hardest thing to do but these guys have no problems looking decent on the beach. Is it their suits? Possibly, but I think it’s the fact that they have somewhere in the area of 4-9% body fat. Yeah that’s probably it.
So I’m not going to add much commentary because lets face it, you won’t be reading it. In fact I’d be surprised if you are even reading this because of all these spandex wrapped eye candy. Actually, if you are reading this it’s probably because you want to find out more about the men wearing the uniforms. Well sadly I’m not going to get into that here because a) this is a fashion blog and b) who cares.
Most of the suits seen here are produced by Speedo which is known for it’s amazing fit and sleek design. As a style tip, I don’t recommend wearing trunks like these unless you look like these guys. Otherwise you’ll look like a whale stuffed into shrink-wrap. Regular trunks or shorts are fine to wear on the beach and will save you the embarrassment of being mistaken for a walrus.
Clic through to the next pages to see more of the men you may recognize from their respective teams. The best is yet to come… trust me.
