This article lists 5 of the best bodies at the 2012 Olympics, including Ryan Lochte, Jessica Ennis, Tom Daley, Yohan Blake plus Menegatti and Cicolari.
The 2012 Olympics brought sporting prowess and superb physical conditioning to the world stage. As viewers marvelled at the athletes’ achievements, many were also bowled over by the fantastic physiques on display. Here’s a round-up of the 5 best bodies from different sports.
USA’s Ryan Lochte brought home several medals from the London Olympics, including two gold and two silver, but he also brought home a legion of new fans thanks to his fit body. The swimmer’s defined upper body helps propel him through the water and gives him plenty of modelling work.
Ryan credits a strong core as the foundation to a swimmer’s success, and he teaches you how to achieve this in his own fitness video. Michael Phelps from the USA is another Olympic swimmer who made many spectators weak-kneed with his physique, as did France’s Camille Lacourt.
Heptathlete Jessica Ennis made Britain proud when she won gold in the 2012 Olympics. Her impressive washboard stomach meant viewers couldn’t understand when a high-ranking official in UK Athletics called her fat before the Games began.
It’s no wonder those competing in the heptathlon have abs of steel, since they have to train for the high jump, long jump, shot put, javelin, 100m hurdles, 200m and 800m. This creates strength across the whole body.
Sprinter Yohan Blake is known as ‘The Beast’ because he trains so hard. All that effort paid off in the Games in 2012, as he came second in both the men’s 100m and 200m finals behind his fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt. Blake was also part of the world-record-breaking men’s 4 x 100m relay team.
Short distance runners need powerful arms to help them make it to the finish line. Blake is a shining example of how hard work can get you the medal and the physique.
Menegatti and Cicolari
Italy’s beach volleyball players Marta Menegatti and Greta Cicolari’s strong and lean bodies help them jump and stretch to get the ball over the net. As competitors in this sport have a lot of flesh on display, it’s no wonder their physiques get a lot of attention.
Team GB’s Zara Dampney and Shauna Mullin also displayed toned tummies at the Games. All that practice in the sun means tanned skin and muscles that are even more defined.
Tom Daley has been diving since he was seven, proving that dedication from a young age helps you win the medals and the body. His rippling torso is a result of hours of training every day. He won gold at the World Championships and European Championships, and a bronze in the 10-metre platform dive at the 2012 Olympics.
It seems a lot of viewers, whether single or dating someone they met on www.jazzedfreedating.co.uk, were ogling these athletes at the London 2012 Olympics. And it’s easy to see why…
