Bless his heart… and his britches! American Olympic rower Henrik Rummel’s winkie “is the new sweetheart of the 2012 Olympics.” This pic of the healthily endowed dude has become an internet sensation, following Rummel’s team medal ceremony Sunday. Even the Huffington Post has dedicated a post to the eyebrow-raising picola.
Courtesy of Gawker, the medalist swears he is not sporting an erection in the pic… It’s simply his mammoth manhood. Gawker asks, “What was your initial reaction when the story of your boner hit the internet?” Rummel says, “I laughed very hard! I woke up my girlfriend and told her the story. Then I told everyone else I knew, except my parents.”
He adds that “this is a recurring problem with rowers. The spandex doesn’t leave a lot to the imagination. I haven’t heard of any erections occurring on the podium.” And again, he swears he wasn’t erect: “Nope! If I did have one you can bet I would’ve tried harder to cover it up with the flowers. Those spandex are pretty tight fitting and whatever position it happens to be captured in, it’s staying that way.” Rummel concludes: “Go USA!” Indeed! *
