What is it about an athlete’s body that inspires such awe? Even when they’re perfectly still, they exhibit grace and power that makes us want to bow down and worship them as demigods–they’re like living Greek statues. And when we see them naked, well, then, let’s just say we get really excited for the Olympics.
Also, we’re stoked for the Paralympics, too. That may or may not have something to do with Oksana Masters, the Ukrainian rower with prosthetic legs and a crazy beautiful butt. If you’re the kind of person who can’t get even a little bit excited about sports, then do yourself a favor, look through this gallery, and find your favorite body part to cheer for.
