Hey there, sexy ladies! Do you know what a champion Olympic athlete needs in the run-up to the 2012 London Games? Why a hot beach-babe, of course. That’s right, let’s kick it Baywatch-style! Wait, what’s that? You’re a champion Olympic athlete too? Doesn’t matter. Just grab yourself some beefcake arm and smile for the camera.
That, at least, seems to be the message of this special Olympics-themed cover of Vogue. Vogue rarely features men on its covers, but they’ve made an exception for swimmer Ryan Lochte. Lochte and his abs are joined by fellow-Olympians Hope Solo and Serena Williams, photographed rocking the classic female beach-model pose.
