When the USA swept the podium in men’s slopestyle skiing I thought I should do a post about the three hunks with the All American Boy look down pat. I’d hoped to find a photo of the three living, breathing Ken Dolls naked in a hot tube together. I mean that’s how I would have celebrated that victory. And then this story could have written itself. No such luck. But I did run across a photo of hunky Gus Kenworthy buck ass naked, with ass being the operative word. And if you are looking for an Olympian worthy of the Ken Doll moniker . . . well, Kenworthy pretty much says it all.
I’m glad a skier stepped up and dropped trou ‘cuz I’m tired of just covering naked male figure skaters. And I was worried I’d have to switch over to one of the too stoned to be trusted with a straight razor snowboarding hunks. Not that that diminutive dreadlock wearing Swedish guy in the XXXX clothes wasn’t worthy of a post of his own, but Gus ratchets up the adorable factor with his now well-publicized attempt at making life better for a few of Sochi’s stray dogs. It’s a good thing for him that there are no ski slopes in Thailand.
The 22-year-old freestyle skier’s love of dogs also helps explain why he asked Miley Cyrus to be his valentine last week. But then I suspect that has more to do with freestyle skiers getting as drunk as the snowboarders get stoned. I’m assuming the aforementioned diminutive dreadlock wearing Swedish guy in the XXXX clothes partakes equally of both.
Gus is one of the few athletes who excels in both halfpipe and slopestyle, so you’ll get to see more of him today and maybe he’ll be winning another medal; he finished second in the halfpipe at the Olympic Test Event in Sochi in February. Named the Association of Freeskiing Professionals top overall rider in 2011 and 2012, Gus had another banner year in 2013. And you already know how 2014 is shaping up for him.
The 5’ 10” 165 lb. salute to America’s farmland (and it hunky corn-fed boys) was actually born in Great Britain. But then considering how well the Brits do at the Winter Games, his move to the USA make sense. His spectacular rise in the world of freestyle skiing includes a bronze medal win for the overall title in the X Games, which also landed him a sponsorship from both Nike and Atomic Skis.
I don’t really do the blonde hair/blue eye thingy, but can understand Gus’ youthful appeal to others. But thanks to that bare ass photo of his bare ass that he tweeted while in New Zealand, he’s an Olympian I could really get behind.
