Ok we’ll admit it, we’ve been quite overcome with Olympic fever and it’s mainly due to the physical prowess of the male athletes (although we’ve garnered quite a few girl crushes too). That said, a lot of these talented hotties are already spoken for, (of course we’d be in with a chance if they weren’t), and we couldn’t help but wonder who their other halves are. . . So here’s a look at some of our favourite sportsmen with their WAGS (wives and girlfriends!).
British tennis champion, Andy Murray has been dating the down-right-gorgeous Kim Sears for quite some time now. The daughter of legendary tennis coach John Sears, Kim is a fledgling actress and artist and is undoubtedly best renowned for her swishy, glossy long locks. Back in 2010, Kim reportedly broke up with Murray because of his “seven hour a day Playstation addiction”. However, back together again and seemingly happier than ever, the couple recently posted a picture of two puppies that Andy purchased to keep Kim company whilst he is away for up to 6 weeks at a time during training. How adorable to they look in his Olympic medals!?
As the most decorated Olympian, and with a body that could heat up the chilliest of swimming pools, it’s no wonder that Phelps’ other half is equally as hot! The aspiring model and swimmer have apparently been dating since January, with clues as to their growing relationship scattered in short (less than 140 characters to be exact)-but-sweet messages to one another via Twitter. On June 26th sweetheart Rossee tweeted,
“idk how to direct msg u and don’t wanna wake u up but just watched your swim 🙂 good job today and can’t wait to be there,” followed in July by “@MichaelPhelps this probably will get lost in your tweets but since i cant text i miss you and cant wait to spend time with you for real xo.”
As Australia’s top swimmer, you’d expect, especially at the tender age of 21, for James Magnussen to be enjoying a playboy lifestyle, but instead the very private athlete has been spotted with former swimmer Andrea Patrulescu, although due to their kept-very-quiet private life, we don’t know much more about the couple.
Matt Grevers and his fiance Annie Chandler, also a swimmer, have to be the cutest of all the Olympic couples. After winning the 100 meter backstroke at the Missouri Grand Prix, the swimmer turned to Annie on bended knee and proposed, in front of the rest of the swim team! There’s even a video making the rounds on the internet of the proposal!
A one-time tennis player herself, Mirka, married tennis legend Roger Federer back in 2009. Proud wife, and mother of two twins, Mirka is most often found courtside cheering her husband on, daughters in tow.
A strong man almost always requires support from an equally strong woman, and this is undoubtedly the case with New York Knick basketball player Carmelo Anthony and his wife La La Anthony. The one time MTV VJ turn budding actress, reality tv star and beauty executive La La works hard to juggle family and her busy working life. As a rising star, the beautiful La La recently featured in a U.S Vogue editorial entitled She’s Got Game, shot by none other than legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz.
