No big surprise, but refreshing that 19-year-old British Olympic diver Tom Daley has revealed he is in a relationship with a man.
On his YouTube page, the cutie announces in a 5:25-minute video, “This has been a hard decision to make, but I wanted you to hear this from me. In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. That someone is a guy.”
Daley adds, “I’ve only talked about things I’ve felt comfortable about. It’s one of those things that in an idea world, I wouldn’t be doing this video—because it shouldn’t matter… It did take me by surprise a little bit. I couldn’t be happier.”
Good going, Tom. We’ve come a long way from the days when Greg Louganis was forced to hide his homosexuality amid so much global fear. And now… it’s hardly news, just the way it should be. *
Olympic diver Tom Daley continues to indulge his many minions with a series of sexy Christmas pics… Too bad Santa couldn’t deliver a cute Brit under the tree this year… (I swear, in 2013, this young man is going to come bursting out of the closet… and the masses with celebrate!)
Two years ago, British diver Tom Daley was a cute 16-year-old kid. Now, at 18, his testosterone has begun to kick into high gear.
He’s still adorable, but month by month, he’s getting hotter as he blossoms into full manhood… which all the world is experiencing, given that he spends most of his time in the public eye in a pair of tight Speedos. Mind you, I’m entranced by the fact that he has such beautiful teeth…
Given the number of Tumblr sites Daley has, this guy is going nowhere but up. He’s already propelled beyond “athlete” in his native U.K. to an outright celebrity. Too bad NBC’s Olympics’ coverage is so arrogantly focused on U.S. U.S. U.S. that many in America don’t know our favorite overall Olympian. *
The 2012 Olympics have brought the battle of the bulge into the mainstream, where the general press has taken over for we the gay bloggers of the universe. As if Henrik Rummel’s boner-bearing wardrobe malfunction wasn’t enough of a viral Internet sensation (in blue, with flowers above), the athletic men of London have become pure objects of lust, far beyond the gay blogosphere. I say welcome to the club, mainstream cool cats! The ultimate (sad, sad) irony, mind you is that the greatest swimmer in the world, Michael Phelps, not only registers a big fat zero on the hottie scoreboard with his unfortunate horse face, but… there seems to be next to nothing going on downstairs. All those medals and no metal. Poor boy. *Above, Aussie rowers, revealing their oars.Three below: Blogs are going NUTS for USA swimmer Tony Dumais’ goodies.The pic below of Brit Olympic diver Tom Daley has become the most popular crotch shot on the webbie. It’s absolutely everywhere. Easy enough to see why.
This is a riot… writing about sports on a daily basis, as if we actually give a flip about athletics. After a brush earlier this week with British diver Tom Daley, we now move to fellow Brit hottie James Ellington, who will compete in the men’s 200m sprint and men’s relay race at the London games this week… or this month… or something like that. *
Tom Daley and partner Peter Waterfield failed to win an Olympic medal for the Men’s Synchronized 10m Platform competition, coming in fourth. Next up: Individual diving. *
