In honour of Mr Murray’s fantastic win at Wimbledon, the magnificent display of talent and steel by the Lions, and, better late than never, the superb Welsh win in the 6 Nations, I have compiled a selection of the very best of British Sporting Sex Gods for your appreciation.
Ok, for those of you who can count, yes, this one pushes me well into Cougar territory, but nevertheless, Mr Daley is certainly going into the top 10. Winning double Gold medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and scoring a Bronze in last year’s London Olympics, he has not only proved his worth pool side, but established himself as an undeniable sex god, being tanned and toned to a level that can stall heartbeats, let alone conversations. He’s sexy and he knows it. Mr Daley, we salute you!
Sir Bradley Wiggins isn’t your average knight on a burning stead…he’s much faster. This demon on 2 wheels is not only King of the Mods, he has his own brand of casual cool, and this multi-stage winning yellow jersey wonder is also a seven times Gold medal winner. Any more reason to think he’s awesome? He speaks fluent French, and has brought back sideburns as a sex symbol. What a legend.
Philip Idowu is an prime example from the world of athlectics.This 6″5 triple jumper is a former Gold Medal winner in the World Outdoor and Indoor, European Outdoor and Indoor, and Commonwealth games. He is known for various hair colours, wearing facial piercings, and has a trademark booming laugh. Tall, quirky and buff…join the queue ladies.
Sir Chris Hoy is an eleven-time world champion, six-time Olympic champion and a winner of a total of seven Olympic Games medals, six gold and one silver. Hoy is the most successful Olympic cyclist of all time, but did you know he was inspired to cycle after watching E.T at the age of 6? Bless. After his success in the London Olympics taking Gold in the Keirin, he announced his retirement earlier his year at the spritely age of 37. Somehow, I don’t think his wife will mind having him home more.
George North has been wowing Welsh rugby fans for years, carving out a name for himself at his international debut against South Africa in 2010, by becoming the youngest player ever to score a try in his debut for Wales. 3 years later, at the tender age of 21, he has won 31 caps for Wales, and scored 60 points. This hard work earned him a place in this summer’s Lions squad, scoring 10 points, and securing himself as a legend with 10 points, and also carrying Australia’s Israel Folau in a Fireman’s lift during the Second Test. George,if you ever fancy practising that on a Welsh girl, just give me a shout.
Leigh Halfpenny made his debut for Wales aged 19 in their first game of the autumn internationals against South Africa in 2008. Although being troubled by injuries, he has fought his way to the top of his game, earning a place in the 2009 Lions Squad, and the 2011 World Cup team for Wales, where he became first choice kicker. In this summer’s Lions tour, Halfpenny played all three tests, winning player of the series and breaking the Lions points record held by Neil Jenkins.He Also broke the record for most points in one test. Amazing at rugby, and 100% home grown Welsh Beefcake. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
And onto Andy Murray. This legendary Scot has been making waves in the world of Tennis for years… gaining a runner up place in the 2008 US Open, the 2010 Australian Open, the 2011 Australian Open, 2012 Wimbledon and the 2013 Australian Open. In 2011, Murray became only the seventh player in the Open Era to reach the semi-finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments in one year. Last summer he lost his Wimbledon final to Federer, then came back 4 weeks later and beat him in straight sets to win Gold in the olympic Men’s Singles.
A hush descended, and we all began to hope. Then, last weekend, he made a place for himself in the history books, by overcoming Djokovic in a straight sets match that lasted over three hours, to become the first British winner of the men’s singles title since Fred Perry in 1936. Sporty, sexy, and smart, I’m going to dedicate this week’s blog to Andy Murray: The man who, last Sunday, made every woman in Britain scream. Well done sir!
