Feast your eyes on the men of the mat.

This is an entire post about eye candy, so if you are offended by photos of hot, muscular men, click elsewhere.

The men's gymnastics competition is going on in Rio and it's safe to say that these guys are in amazing shape. Not that anyone is complaining. I find athletes in all sports and all shapes and sizes to be hot, but there is something collectively about gymnasts that has a wow factor.

There is one openly gay male gymnast, Jeffrey Wammes of the Netherlands.

Update: Added two photo of Danell Leyva, an American gymnast who won two silver medals and who also is very gay-supportive, wearing a "Make America Gay Again" T-shirt in June.
