Meet the (Shirtless) U.S. Men’s Gymnastics Team.

Every now and then, I like to share a little bit of fitness inspiration and motivation – and, after watching the Olympic trials, I know there’s no shortage of either in the U.S. men’s gymnastics team. I have two words, “Yes, please.”

These men are, of course, very delicious eye candy. But with their incredible flexibility, strength an athleticism, they’re also incredible examples to which all of us can aspire. Sure, most of us aren’t going to compete in the Olympics. But I like to say that it’s better to shoot for the stars and land on the moon than aim for the mountains and reach them.

With all that in mind, I give you the Olympians of the U.S. men’s gymnastics team.

Jake Dalton: Age 20, 5’5″

Jonathan Horton: Age 26, 5’1″

Danell Leyva: Age 20, 5’7″

John Orozco: Age 19, 5’4″

Sam Mikulak: Age 19, 5’6″

Jake Dalton is my absolute favorite, but – as someone who loves shorter guys – each one of these gymnasts makes my heart skip a beat.

Which gymnast will you be tuning in to watch during the Olympics? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Wow. Such amazing physiques. These guys must work so hard at perfecting their craft. They are amazing to look at and are inspiring too.

  2. chad lyon says:

    I will be watching all of them but Sam, Jake, and Jonathan they are my fav for sure

  3. Louis Santana says:

    Definitely Jake and Sam they are both really good looking. 🙂

  4. Jake, oh la la 😉 Danell is for sure a good one as well.

  5. Danell Leyva is definitely my favorite of all the US team. Jonathan Horton is a close second (I love short men, too). Jake Dalton would have come in third if not for the tattoo, so the bronze goes to Sam Mikulak.

  6. I’d have to say that I ought to be cheering on the UK team – but I’ll be looking out for Sam as well

  7. I totally agree with you Davey…Jake all the way!!! YUM!

  8. Hudson Morrigan says:

    They are sexy…but OMG so short, they are MIDGETS almost.

  9. I agree that Jake is yummy. But I typically like guys taller than me. But since I appear to be terminally single, maybe I should consider the shorter guys.

  10. I’ll be keeping a close eye on ALL of them. but Jonathan Horton is favorite. And the pommel horse is my preferred position, I mean, EVENT. Go USA!

  11. jackson803 says:

    Danell Leyva is definitely my favorite of the US team — I have a MAJOR crush on him. Jake Dalton and Jonathan Horton also get my stamp of approval.

  12. It just dawned on me how young these guys are. Jon, Jake, and Sam make my heart skip a beat.

  13. I’ve always loved short men.. and these guys are just remarkably talented.

    however, they ABUSE their bodies, and their careers will be short. I hope they’re smart too and have plans that don’t include gymnastics.

    Athletes at this level normally do quite well afterwards, as they’re used to committing totally to a project. I’d hire a gymnast or a wrestler or a fencer before I’d ever hire a “team” player. I don’t like that pack mentality.

      It’s not often mentioned but gymnasts tend to be the scholar-athletes. Usually academically accomplished.

  14. Hmm. Very nice but I’ll be cheering the Canadians. I suppose it should be pointed out that shorter men and women make better gymnasts/divers because they can more easily control their centre of gravity. Good things come in small packages and at 5’10 I’ve got no issue with shorter guys. Good luck to all the Olympians this summer!

  15. I’ll be watching all as I’m a gmnast myself!

  16. joeyseti says:

    I wonder how many of these guys are gay.

  17. Who says I have to watch the TV to see them… given that I have tickets and all.

  18. christopher says:

    Johnathan all the way.

  19. I’m Glad you showed this Davey, I don’t really watch TV but I’m very familiar with the Olympics, I never knew these guys were so short, I’m 5’6 & I recently got into cross fitness, I am very uncomfortable about the way I am, I weight 130 pounds & I struggle to gain more muscle weight & be taller, but looking at these guys I know if I stay true to my diet & exercise I’ll be lean & a little taller in no time, maybe even look like one of those guys

  20. I have also had experience in work outs and the results are really good.

  21. John Orozco and Danell are the two best hands down.. def have great chances of bringing home a medal.. Jake is beautiful but more of a specialty.. same with Sam.. finally a talented and BEAUTIFUL mens team! LONDON only 13 days away! Hit me up and join our olympic party!

  22. Oh, I can’t decide, I’ll have to watch them all!!!! They are all amazing…….

  23. Matthew says:

    How/why are all these guys shorter than me except 1 ???

  24. Davey! Come visit my university, i’ll take you to a meet. Jake Dalton competes for my school. 🙂

  25. Love me some Jake Dalton. Mmmmm. F’n beautiful.

  26. 50 shades of Gay..Ill Be glued to the TV..HOT!
