"So far all [featured athletes] have been men, which must be about making the Olympics more interesting to women - or gay men."Please, granny Herald, sometimes you are so 20th Century. The columnist even mildly criticised her own editorial department for running a full page full chest frontal of Michael Phelps on its sports section front page. Sure beats pictures of ugly politicians or - more commonly - fat All Blacks.
None of the entries so far at Hot Olympians have floated my boat, but here are my present and past favourites:
American gymnast Blaine Wilson
Russian diver Dmitri Saoutine
But I definitely wish they would include Turkish oil wrestling as a demonstration sport - if only to promote goodwill between Greeks and Turks.
