A few things are to be expected from Olympic swimmer Nathan Ghar-jun Adrian’s afternoon spent posing for the ever-lovely annual ESPN Body Issue: his body is going to be on point (especially with the Games around the corner), someone is going to ask about how to pronounce his middle name and things are going to get wet.
Check, check (we assume), and check.
What we didn’t expect from the shoot was the near-blinding Speedo tan Nathan is rocking.
It makes sense, though. Think of all those hours spent training at the highest level of athletic achievement. Nathan’s Speedo must feel like a second skin at this point.
We dig it; it’s working for him.
