These sportsmen all have something in common: They're gifted both on and off the field. Their well-toned legs provide an amazing show as they flex their muscles. 

A few of our favourite SA sports stars:

Chad le Clos (24)

Chad is SA's sexiest swimmer with an Olympic gold medal. The 24-year-old hunk is a "champion" of both the World and Commonwealth games. 

Le Clos has won the Overall Swimming World Cup three times: in 2011, 2013 and 2014. He holds the record for the 50 and 100 metre butterfly.

Greg Minnaar

This Pietermaritzburg-born mountainbiker holds the World Championship mountainbiker racing title. He competed in the National Off-Road Bicycle Association (NORBA) where he claimed victory in 2003 and 2004.

He won his Downhill World Championship title after winning the UCI Downhill Mountain bike points series three times in 2001, 2005 and 2008. The 35-year-old is currently the most successful professional downhill mountain bike racer with 18 World Cup victories under his belt.
