PHOTOS: A Look Back At Our Top 10 Olympic Crushes Of 2016
The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio will soon be over and it’s been one hell of a ride. This year’s games had no shortage of scandals, including a straight reporter who baited gay athletes on Grindr, a sex tape leak, and an alleged arm robbery that may or may not (probably not) have happened.
Of course, there were some pretty awesome and far less scandalous moments as well, including a record number of out and proud athletes competing, a marriage proposal, and an awesome Nike ad celebrating trans athlete Chris Mosier.
Then, of course, there were all the cute guys.

May we never forget the time we watched him shirtless and being smeared in oil on live television.
Or “Thomas Daley” as he prefers to be called these days.

The openly gay Dutch gymnast didn’t nab a medal in Rio, but his Instagram is pure gold.
The French boxer made his Olympic debut this year.
The Brazilian gymnast found himself at the center of a scandal this Olympic season when a rather revealing video of him leaked online.
Not only does he hold the record for the 100 meter freestyle in Italy, but he’s also a celebrated underwear model for Emporio Armani.
The openly gay swimmer from Tonga just announced he is the new Brand Ambassador for Raw Materials Premium, a line of all natural men’s skincare products.
A rower and a stallion.
OK, OK, so maybe he didn’t compete in this year’s games (he’s retired, after all), but he was still there cheering on his younger counterparts, snapping selfies with Tom Daley, and serving up some daddy realness.
