Team USA’s men’s gymnastics team thinks they have come up with a novel idea that will help generate more attention to their sport that traditionally favors female athletes.

hunksIn an interview with The Wall Street Journal, US all-around national champion Sam Mikulak suggested: “Maybe compete with our shirts off” to get more viewers, adding, “People make fun of us for wearing tights. But if they saw how yoked we are maybe that would make a difference.”

Earlier this year, you may remember a shirtless photo of the USA men’s gymnastics team on Copacabana beach that went viral.

“You would think that the top guy in a big-time sport like that could get, like, not a LeBron James contract, but some good money,” says Jonathan Horton, who won a silver at Beijing. “You really can’t make a living off men’s gymnastics.”
