No April Foolin' here... I'm delivering the goods today!
Nearly a month ago I did a Hunks of Vancouver post and received a comment (Thanks Loraine, if you ever find your way back here!) letting me know the source of one of the photos I used in that post, more often than not, I simply "borrow" these photos from a simple Google/Yahoo search and really never know their origin.
While I thought the pic of short track speed skater JR Celski in his undies (again, check out the Vancouver post) had an artistic flair to it (certainly not a pre-shower, dirty mirror iPhone pic!), again, thanks to Loraine I learned it was Ewoud Broeksma, who does these incredible sports photographic portraits that show off the human body at its peak.
Here are few more. In order: Apolo Anton Ohno, JR Celski (from the same shoot of that original photo), and a member of what seems to be the first family of Canadian short track, Francois Hamlin. His brother Charles was the big medal earner in Vancouver, but Francois did take home a gold as a member of Team Canada in the 5000m relay.
Here's a link to a lot more... just a friendly warning, that much like Francois, the non-Americans in particular do not have (m)any qualms about taking it all off... but it is all very tasteful and (I think!) there is really nothing risque-r than a butt.
