Sexy French Swimmers Pose For Anti-Homophobia Campaign

I was already going to post these two hot Olympic swimmers posing in a shower for an anti-homophobia campaign … and then I found out THEY ARE FRENCH! You know what French men do to me. Or maybe you don’t. But trust, they get me all, Ooh la la. Sorry, Amelia, I’m going to need the rest of the afternoon to admire Florent Manaudou and Frédérick Bousquet in all of their glory.

Heidi Krieger

Back in the ’70s, when there was still an East and West Germany, East Germany was very serious about winning international sports competitions, and was known to regularly dope their athletes (see also: East German swim team). Athletes were fed “performance enhancing drugs” (PEDs) — aka anabolic steroids — that bulked them up and made them more competitive. It was the East German athletes and coaches that inspired the Olympics to institute regular drug tests.

Heidi Krieger (pictured above, competing in 1987 as a woman) was a shot putter in East Germany, who won the gold medal at the 1986 European Championships. She was fed PEDs for several years, and says today that they are the reason she opted to get a sex change and live as a man. He now lives as Andreas Krieger. Keep reading »

Excited to head to Brazil’s 2014 Olympic Summer Games? Well, if you’re obese, expect to pay a little bit more to enjoy the sports. Where standard-sized stadium seats start at $28, all obese seating is $58. Brazilian law defines obesity as a “disability,” and as such requires that the stadium be properly outfitted for the disabled. Approximately 120 of the 64,000 seats in Castelao, the main Olympic stadium, were designed with the obese in mind and are equipped to hold up to 560 pounds. And just in case obese fans don’t feel bad enough about having to pay extra to watch the games, they’ll also be singled out by having their seats painted blue, instead of the regulation white used for all other seating.

We here at The Frisky offices have a little lady boner for Ryan Lochte — mostly for his abs, because he’s not like, the brightest. Just today he tweeted about meeting Miley “Sirus” — yes, that’s right. Plus, there’s that whole “Jeah” thing, which is pretty annoying. But again, there are his abs, which are wildly redeemable. Of late, Lochte has teemed up with Charitybuzz to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy victims. He’s auctioning off a morning swim lesson, along with “lunch at one of his favorite spots,” which we imagine is likely a Chili’s or Applebees. But oh, there’s a catch… Keep reading »

We already know that Maria Sharapova is a hardcore philanthropist and kickass tennis player who has scored some of the biggest endorsement deals around, but her equally formidable sweet tooth managed to fly under the radar … until now. The Olympic silver medalist and four-time Grand Slam winner (and she’s only 25!) launched her premium candy line, Sugarpova, at Henri Bendel yesterday, and at risk of sounding tooth-achingly trite, Sharapova looked pretty damn sweet herself. A metallic dark brown liner smudged between the lashes and a sheer, shimmery mushroom taupe shadow on the lids enhances her almond-shaped eyes without the “too much” factor when paired with a pretty coral lipstick. This look is super-simple and the clean, fresh vibe is perfect for the office … or anywhere else, really. Get the details after the jump! Keep reading »

The first thing you notice about gold medal winning Olympic rower Esther Lofgren is her smile. The next thing you notice is her height — at 6’2″ Esther towers over nearly everyone she meets, but she’s warm and will happily stoop to accomodate those around her. The Harvard grad took home the gold during the London Olympics with an impressive team performance in the women’s eight-person race.

We spoke to Esther while she was getting her nails done at the P&G Family Home salon about how she made it to the Olympics, what it’s like to work with all women, and how she keeps her skin looking so damn good.

Did Michael Phelps Fart In The Louis Vuitton Bathtub?

Olympic swimmer/world record breaker/real life superhero Michael Phelps now has another title to add to his impressive resume: Louis Vuitton model. The legendary athlete and alleged retiree is starring in the latest round of Louis Vuitton “Core Values” ad campaigns, shot by Annie Leibovitz. One of the photos shows Phelps reclining in a bathtub, wearing goggles and a Speedo, showing off his amazing body and—wait, is that a fart bubble between his legs? OK, OK, so it’s probably just a weird shadow or the outline of a drain or something, but I kind of wish it was a fart, if only because, as my boyfriend put it, “That would make his facial expression so much funnier.” [Fashionista]
