Not all sports are equal in this regard (think chess). IMHO, swimming gives men the best body shape of all. It helps even the pear-shaped, but the lucky ones who were V-shaped to start with turn into something out of this world. Like this guy.
Athletes share this trait with another beloved romance hero – the wealthy businessman. Top-level athletes are just as smart and driven as the next billionaire. And we love that about them.
#3: Discipline and sacrifice
Athletes are men of action. A good athlete doesn’t second-guess himself and doesn’t give up in the face of adversity, much like a good soldier. His mission is to succeed, or help his team to succeed, and he’ll give it his best shot. And that, my friends, is sexy.
#4: Team spirit
Even in such solitary sports as running and wrestling, athletes from the same country come together in national teams during world championships and Olympic Games. But in team sports, the collective energy generated by a band of hunks working in sync with each other is almost palpable. It’s contagious. Their defeats dampen our spirits. Their victories make us happy. They inspire us. And they remind us that the sky is the limit for those who dare to dream.
