Sportrait: Alexandre Despatie


French Canadian diver Alexandre Despatie appears on the cover of L'Actualite magazine looking fitter than ever. He's ready to compete in the Olympics in Beijing.

Despatie3You may remember that Despatie had a trial run at Beijing's Olympic "water cube" in February for the FINA World Cup.

Despatie made an appearance on L'Actualite four years ago as well, when he was headed to Athens. To see what a difference four years makes, check the cover out AFTER THE JUMP....

  3. And Alex is such a nice kid! I did a photoshoot here in Montreal with him and he was a gentleman. And he trains right next to my kickboxing class.

  10. Alexandre me rend fou!! I swear Québécois men are the hottest("caucasian") men on the planet!!

  11. "From twink to man"? Are you implying that twinks aren't men? I think that's pretty poor gender politics to be playing on one of the net's most popular LGBT blogs...

  12. I'll bet McCain's wife would love to adopt him!

  15. Hotness personified.

    I'll second Shabaka on the Québécois men: one of the main reasons we live in Montreal now ;-)

    He's in a TV ad for the Olympics now, one of the few ads I don't mind seeing repeated 3-4 times an hour here.

  17. i remember 4 years ago being introduced to Msr. Despatie right here on Towleroad and feeling like a gross chicken hawk [even though i was only 30] for lusting after him.

    well, i'm okay with it now. holy frackin' smoke he's matured nicely.

    he's it.

  19. Why is he shaving his chest?!!? Oh God, he is so sexy with the stubble and so but with that chest hair, he would be _the #1 hot hot hot hottie_!
