Abs, hugs and asses: Bromance at the Olympics
By Jim Buzinski @outsports on Aug 14, 2016
Seeing athletes show affection never gets old.
One of the coolest things about the Olympics is seeing athletes show emotion, especially affection in an arena that is acceptable to men. It's a bromance novel every four years.
It's also great to see some of the athletes better assets, often hidden underneath their uniforms — namely their abs. And finally, a parting shot that shows what all that rowing does to build one's glutes.
