15 Sexiest Male Olympians of All Time
Mark Spitz – Swimming
He set a record for Olympic gold medals (seven) in 1976, but many people remember Mark Spitz for the famous poster in which he wore nothing but his medals, a Speedo, and a wicked smile.
Bruce Jenner – Decathlon
In 1976, years before he met the Kardashians and his plastic surgeon, Bruce Jenner was a gold medal-winning Olympian with a ruggedly handsome face.
Roger Federer – Tennis
He's been a powerhouse on the tennis courts, but you don't have to be a tennis fan to recognize Roger Federer's smoldering good looks in ads for Rolex, Mercedes, Lindt chocolate and Gillette.
Michael Phelps – Swimming
His face may be boyishly cute, but his long, lean muscles are what propelled Michael Phelps to the current record for winning the most gold medals (eight) in one Olympic Games.
Carl Lewis –Track & Field
Well before Olympians became sex symbols, Carl Lewis was a great athlete who also happened to be good looking. Over the course of his long Olympic career, from 1979 to 1996, Lewis won nine gold and one silver medal for sprinting and the long jump.
David Beckham — Soccer
The only Olympic participant on this list to never win a gold medal, David Beckham has parlayed his athleticism and appearance into equal fame as a footballer and one-half of a Hollywood power couple (with wife and former Spice Girl, Victoria).
Greg Louganis — Diving
He was only sixteen when he competed in his first Olympics in 1976, but over the course of his Olympic career, Greg Louganis captured plenty of attention for his athletic ability -- and his Mediterranean good looks.
Rafael Nadal — Tennis
His aggressive and unorthodox playing style may have won the gold for men's singles tennis at the 2008 Olympics. But that's probably not what won Rafael Nadal his endorsement deals for Armani underwear and jeans.
Asafa Powell — Track & Field
As a sprinter who holds the world's fastest time -- 9.72 seconds -- for the 100 meters, 2008 Olympic gold-medal winner Asafa Powell is grace and power in action. Between races he's a real crowd-pleaser, for obvious reasons.
Sidney Crosby — Hockey
The professional hockey player who scored the winning goal that gave Canada the gold in the 2010 Winter Olympics, Sidney Crosby looks great on the ice -- and off.
