Here Are Sexy, Sweat-Inducing Instagram Pics of Each Member of the U.S. Men’s Bobsled Team
While we’re super proud of figure skater Adam Rippon for becoming the first openly gay U.S. athlete to qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, everyone’s salivating over the recent pic of the U.S. Men’s Bobsled team looking all hunky in their skintight uniforms — and can yow! Let’s celebrate each member’s icy hotness by looking through their sexy Instagram pics, shall we?
But before we get to their pics, let’s quickly highlight Rippon and two other gay winter athletes. Rippon, a 28-year-old ice skater, controversially won a place on the U.S. figure skating team last Saturday, snagging one of three team spots over his second place competitor even though Rippon placed fourth.
Rippon said, “I was recently asked in an interview what its like to be a gay athlete in sports. I said that it’s exactly like being a straight athlete. Lots of hard work but usually done with better eye brows.”
He added, “Growing up I didn’t have a lot of role models. I said if I was ever given a platform and had a chance I would share my story.”
Openly gay luge competitor, 22-year-old John Fennell, almost made the U.S. team, but his luge sled broke during the qualifying time trials, basically wrecking his Olympics dreams — heartbreaking. Oh well, at the very least openly gay freeskier Gus Kenworthy is expected to make the men’s Olympic team when they announce their lineup on Jan. 22, 2018, so that’s good.
Okay, enough talk — onto the bobsledders! Here’s a hot pic of each one. You can click on their names below to connect to their individual Instagram accounts, most of which have more sexy pics. (And thanks to Twitter-user Pierce Streiff for helping track these down.)
