  1. Rick says

    You should have just called this the PC version. LOL. And if the addition with the big lump on his forehead is anyone’s idea of “hot”, I am just glad I am me and not him……

    “And if the addition with the big lump on his forehead is anyone’s idea of “hot”, I am just glad I am me and not him……”

    Oh, Rick, you ought to know that lumps and scars are manly on a man. You oughtta’ try ’em…you know, you can never get enough mannishness.

  3. Hank SF says

    Someone had a lump on his forehead? Missed it completely. My eyes must have been darting someplace else….

  4. Rich F. says

    *sigh*

    If only modern gymnastics were performed in the classical fashion… you know: “gymnos.”

    If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look it up.

  6. vanndean says

    Yeah Rick, we know. You didn’t want any of those grapes because they were probably sour, right!

  7. Alaina says

    Yeah, I don’t see a lump on a forehead anywhere. All I see is delicious men. mmmmmmm…..

  8. CM says

    I think you mean “culmination,” not “comination.” Like people who say “wala” instead of “voila.”

  9. Rick says

    “Yeah, I don’t see a lump on a forehead anywhere. All I see is delicious men.”

    LOL. The desire to be PC in some is so intense that it actually induces blindness…..

    “You didn’t want any of those grapes because they were probably sour, right!”

    More like just plain damn ugly.

    Jake, hot.
    Alexander, hot.
    Jonathan, so-so.
    Danell, so-so.
    Sam, so-so.
    Chris, so-so.
    Steven, so-so.

    John, lump-head.

    LOL.

  10. jaragon says

    It’s hard to pick a favorite among all these beautiful men but I wouldn’t mind seen more of Mr Levya ( and yeah too bad they don’t compete in the nude…)

  11. Elsewhere says

    So where is there a country called “Hilton HHonors”? That in South America?

  12. agaymale86 says

    There’s just something about Jonathan Horton that screams ‘Gay Porn’ to me. I don’t know what it is.

  13. John says

    The funny thing, Rick, is that none of these guys would even give you the time of day.

  14. Daniel Berry, NYC says

    omfg how can every single one of them be a knockout?? It ain’t natural.

    or–since they usually play for our team–maybe it is 😉

  15. al says

    at first i thought rick’s “lumphead” might be horton or brooks, but turns out rick is just racist. :)

  16. Matt26 says

    All of them are hot and handsome and excellent gymnastics. But my fav. are Jake, Chris and Steven (esp. the last pic.)

  17. Polyboy says

    Rick thinks he’s a rebel. He is merely a tool, a rusty anonymous tool who probably has trouble climbing stairs let alone a pommel horse.

    And Rick, why don’t you actually look up the definition of political correctness/incorrectness.

    YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG!

  18. TampaZeke says

    Just in case I ever questioned my homaseshality, these pictures cleared it right up for me!

    Go team USA!

  19. Bobby says

    Danell Levya, WOW! Hottest thing I’ve seen on an Olympic team in a very long time.

  20. YankeeFan says

    Working at OU, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing 5 of these men compete on campus. In person? Even better.

  21. redball says

    lol RICK guess u didnt notice that the lump only appears in one of the many shots of John.

    so: chalk it up to lighting or a short-term bruise that disappeared within days.

    god, John is so fine. booty4days (and thighs and arms and….)!!!!!

  22. Edd says

    It’s like an episode of Seinfeld in this thread.
    He’s too tall. He’s not cute enough. He’s too dark. He’s fugly.
    The show went off the air in the late 90’s. Some of you should have too.

  24. Jase says

    Yes Rick is racist. Just like the majority of Americans, the majority of gay men, and the majority of posters here.

  25. UFFDA says

    JASE – majority rules so I guess racism is right. Right? Put on some new glasses and you’ll hardly see it at all.

    The average height of the entire USA Olympics Team is 5’6″. I’m shocked! Don’t get me wrong, nothing with short men but I’m amazed that America has been unable to find an American gymnastics competitor at the 6 foot level. I’m a big guy myself, 6′ while my husband is 6’2″ and we have friends – I kid you not – who stand 6′ to 6’7″.

    Can’t WAIT for the Olympics at the end of this month – so very excited with parties, lunches and dinners planned around all the events and it will be a busy time with friends and family. I’ve got five brothers, a dad and a soccer playing sister so this should be a great time!

  28. andrew says

    What an unbelievable collection of male strength and beauty. Has anyone ever seen a gymnast who wasn’t smokin hot?

  29. Bill says

    I love all the detailed comments about “imperfections”. I guess some of us can afford to be picky. I don’t think I’ll be checking out any lumps (at least not on the forehead), but I really am extremely interested in men’s gymnastics, so I’ll be watching their entire competition. It also doesn’t hurt that this group of guys is the hottest-looking American gymnastics team that I’ve ever seen compete, and that makes watching a double pleasure. Politically correct?…Boring.

  30. DannyEastVillage says

    frankly, I don’t have to have air-brushed print-model perfect to get a *rise* out of me…every single of of these guys could get at least that. yikes–WHAT a bunch of boys..! God is so good..

  31. Den says

    Of course physical perfection means nothing to me. I would only be remotely interesting in any of these men if they had a sense of humour and could hold an intelligent conversation.. :)

  33. Rick says

    “Yes Rick is racist. Just like the majority of Americans, the majority of gay men, and the majority of posters here.”

    Ah, let’s explore this question as regards physical attraction.

    I think everybody would agree that it is OK not to like hairy guys or smooth guys, short guys or tall guys, guys with long hair or guys with buzz cuts, guys with blonde hair or dark hair or red hair, guys with big builds or guys with slender builds……in other words, it is OK not to like guys with a certain kind of physical characteristic because that is all just attributable to “taste” and is entirely natural and harmless.

    HOWEVER, if you don’t find the physical characteristics of a certain race appealing (not saying I personally do or don’t, this is just a hypothetical)–hair texture, skin color, size and shape of facial features like lips and noses–all of which are as distinctive as the other physical traits listed above…then you are a “racist” and are an evil human being.

    In other words, it is PC to be attracted only to certain physical types and discriminate against others–as long as they are of the same race as you–but you are REQUIRED to find those of a different race–and their physical features–attractive…and if you don’t you are immoral and unethical……

    See how ridiculous some of you make yourselves look when you throw around the term “racist”?

  34. anony6 says

    Rick is such an idiot.

    He says people here are so blinded by being PC, that we can’t see the lump…watevah. If Rick wasn’t so blinded by racism he would know that John does not usually have a lump. As evidence by his other pictures, his interviews on tv, and yes, his amazing Olympic trials performance if Rick even bothered to watch. Chalk up the “lump” to lighting or some temporary abrasion. Gymnastics can be a rough sport. Abrasions, bruises, and calluses are pretty normal. And this guy John is USA’s top guy. Even with the lump, he is still freaking hot.

    Not to mention, we should give john mad props for being openly gay.

  35. RedOnTheGreg says

    Rick, I’d wager to guess that you are a homophobic, misogynistic, racist, and ugly self loathing troll (Well, the only part that leaves me guessing is the ugly part, but even that one is pretty much a sure thing).

  36. Solomon says

    I read alternates and was like “Oh, the list is over. Only 5 people. Uh huh.” Who wants to care about an alternate? How many people did they beat to get that spot?

  38. Seattle Mike says

    1. Don’t feed the trolls.
    2. Is this the best looking US Gymnastics team ever, or what?

  39. Jack says

    Wow, GREAT pics of some GREAT looking and very talented men :)

    Open question: Is the mighty fine John Orozco the gymnast who stars in the new song by Gym Class Heroes (f. Ryan Tedder), called, I think, “Fighter”??

  40. chase says

    Said “lump” is only in one picture. Why? because it’s a blood vessel popping out on his forehead from strain. And if it’s politically correct to include black men, then bring on the PC version. You might disagree because you’re racist, but that dude is hot.

  41. DFM says

    Gymnasts have always done it for me. And this crew is a very hot lot indeed. Like Hank, I did not notice any bumps. And after a second, third look, I stand by assessment. All totally hot!

  42. DFM says

    One more thing, as a Canadian living in the UK for many years, could I please ask Towleroad to post some photos of the oh so hot British men’s gymnastic team that won bronze. They are already being dubbed the “perfect boyband” by The Guardian newspaper. See Stuart Heritage’s ‘London 2012: would the British men’s gymnastic team make the perfect boyband?’, 31 July. Love this excerpt:

    “Seriously, One Direction need to look out. The gymnasts are all young and fit and good-looking. They all have clearly defined personalities.Better yet, they are all too focused on their careers to embarrass themselves by mucking around with older women and – on the off-chance that it would get tangled up in a pommel horse and cost them points – none of them are ever likely to grow silly Harry Styles haircuts.”

  43. kyle Michel Sullivan says

    Rick, that’s not a lump on John’s head; it’s a shadow. Even black guys can have them, you know.
