British Diver Tom Daley Drenched in First Wave of Olympic Athlete Beefcake Shoots: VIDEO


The London 2012 Olympics are coming, which means, among other things, that a bounty of beefcake shoots featuring water-based athletes is set to splash forth in the coming weeks.

One of the first comes from the UK publication Fabulous, which came up with a really original idea for British diver Tom Daley:

"The concept of the shoot is we're going to drench him in water."

Watch their video of the shoot, AFTER THE JUMP...

Of course, Daley has already shown he's 'Sexy and He Knows It.

And the New York Times proves its not immune to the trend by going there with its profile on U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte, "The Making of an Olympic Sex Symbol":

“I just want to be done,” he said on the drive to a nearby Hilton, steering his white Range Rover with his knee, sitting far down in the bucket seats, blasting Lil Wayne. He was to spend hours shooting a commercial for a cellphone company, posing shirtless on a locker room set. Tomorrow would bring a double session of exhausting practices to rack up the 70,000 meters he swims weekly in preparation for the London Olympics next month. And then more shoots, more training, a grueling schedule of never-ending shirtlessness.


And here's that cover:


A few more where that came from.

  1. He's one truly hot hottie. But more important, he's a stunning diver. I surely will watch him diving in London.

  2. H-h-HOOOOT. I want to see him naked. This site needs more nakedness.

  3. He reminds me a bit of "Scudder" (Rupert Graves in "Maurice").

  4. I agree with Alan. More nakedness. More divers in the buff! :-)

  5. Divers wear speedos not jammers! Boo!

  6. It is a truly sad day, when we just have to objectify innocent, truly beautiful, men as sex symbols. ;-)

    (If anyone is starting a "more nakedness petition", could you please attach my name? Guys like Tom Daley turned me into a major road hazard, when I was driving in hot weather.)

    P.S. Don't neglect those poor gymnasts!

  7. This 18-year-old gets more tail faster than he can shake a wet speedo at.

  8. Ryan Lochte is no Michael Phelps.

  9. Is it OK if I want young Mr. Daly in my bed? Now? I am willing to fly to London to make it happen.

    "This 18-year-old gets more tail faster than he can shake a wet speedo at."

    Give him a few years... It's Darwinian biological imperative. He's trying to enhance the species.

    P.S. Don't neglect those poor gymnasts! :-)

  11. Are any male divers actually straight?...

  12. BTW... I'd never heard this until just last week, but, apparently, EVERY Olympic village is a sexual marathon, every time. Cross race, culture, politics, religion...

    ...and the more power to them.

  13. Amazing body. But that boyish face makes me feel a little naughty for ogling him.

  14. I think it started with Ryan Lochte on the cover of Vogue. It's very unusual to see a man on the cover of Vogue, and especially as the central point of interest.

  15. Fabsolutely Ab-ulous!

  16. Nice, but Hobbit Face. I don't know how else to put it.

  17. Lochte may be a pretty boy, but he's an ass compared to Michael Phelps. Phelps may have done some stupid young person stunts, but he's a real person who isn't stuck on himself and is not in love with himself the way Lochte is. From all I've seen Lochte doesn't give a crap about swimming.

  18. If you guys want more hot athlete shots pay a visit to Outsports... Daily is one sexy boy.

  19. This young man is so sick of being a commodity. Who wouldn't be?

    Posted by: UFFDA | Jun 11, 2012 11:47:20 PM

  20. And OS2GUY, I'm shocked. That's no way for a happily married man to be talking right here in public.

    Posted by: UFFDA | Jun 12, 2012 1:48:45 AM

  21. Just wanted to point out that Tom is one quarter Asian! (Thumbs up) :-)

  22. Closet case.
    I would rather continue supporting Matthew Mitcham, because he is the full package.

  23. Lotche came across as a ghetto wannabe Florida trash in his NY Times interview. Phelps is Baltimore ghetto wannabe trash, they can both swim way better than me but honestly, I don't like either of them.

  24. Tom is a very handsome guy with abs to die for.

  25. Daley's partner is hotter.
