Gratuitous semi-naked athletes

To celebrate today’s arrival of the Olympic flame in Japan, I am posting this gratuitous image of gold medal breast-stroker Kitajima Kosuke (北島 康介) and his Japanese teammates.

Tibetan rights and China-bashing aside, my dream of Olympic harmony involves admiring Kitajima, known for his speed and his primal screams, and looking forward to this summer’s parade of corporate-sponsored hot athletes.

I prefer “parade” over competition, and hotness over violence. In Kitajima’s words, “‘超気持ちいい,” or “I feel mega good.” How about you?
