Russian gymnast Alexei Nemov- A total CLASS ACT:
Russian gymnast Alexei Nemov tries to calm spectators booing during the men’s horizontal bar final at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games gymnastics competition, August 23, 2004. Russian gymnast Alexei Nemov’s score was booed by spectators for 10 minutes bringing the competition to a standstill until the gymnast appealed for the crowd to calm down. Nemov finished 5th.
Nemov should win a gold for Sportsmanship.

I disagree. The Russian gymnast is EYE candy. Not all your readers are men, you know.
Mr. Nemov is certainly easy to look at. In fact he looks like a blond version of my oldest son ;)
The Brazilian ladies are certainly handsome too, but those thongs look awfully uncomfortable.
I disagree. The Russian gymnast is definitely EYE candy. Not all your readers are straight you know :-)

Viva Brazil!! I just bought my one way ticket to go there and hang out on the first beach I see.
