Olympics Candy...

Alongside with diving and swimming, men's gymnastics is one of my most favourite Olympics events, not just because of their amazing skills/flexibility, but also to drool over their well-toned muscular bodies!

Well, today I've spent a couple of hours watching the replay of the men's individual all-around final of the artistic gymnastics event and I must say I've fallen in love with the French!



France's Benoit Caranobe competes on the rings, the horizontal bars and the vault during today's men's individual all-around final of the artistic gymnastics event.

Hiroyuki Tomita of Japan watches Sergey Khorokhordin of Russia compete in the pommel horse.

Silver medalist Kohei Uchimura of Japan (L), gold medalist Yang Wei of China (C) and bronze medalist Benoit Caranobe of France (R) pose with their medals after competing in the men's individual all-around artistic gymnastics final.

Benoit Caranobe waves and kisses his bronze medal after today's men's individual all-around final of the artistic gymnastics event. Awww, isn't he adorable?

Talking about adorable, our home-grown 18-year-old Daniel Keatings is quite a looker also! Sadly, he came in the 20th place overall. Oh well, I'm sure Daniel will make a come back in London 2012!

It's not Uchimura watching the Russian but Hiroyuki Tomita. Uchida is cute but Tomita is stunning - the most perfectly proportioned musculature I have seen, I think.

Unfortunately he seems to have been carrying an injury. That resulted in a further injury when he fell from the rings.

Continuing on while still in pain and then coming home fourth after that was truly heroic.

I'd volunteer to massage him back to health any time.
