Olympians strip down and deliver pick-up lines in sexy video

The Olympics are definitely about getting to know the athletes

10 Olympians stopped by the Cosmopolitan offices recently. Instead of showing off their athletic skills, though, they showed off a little more skin — and pick-up lines.

As Cosmo’s description says, the Winter Olympics are fun but the athletes aren’t ‘nearly as naked as their summer counterparts’.

Hence this completely necessary and wonderful video.

Steve Nyman, an alpine skier, is up first. Here’s his pick-up line: ‘Hey, babe, if you were a skiing event, I’d travel cross-country for you.’

It only gets better from there.

Take a closer look

Here are the other athletes featured in the video.

  • Hagen Kearney, Snowboarding
  • Evan Weinstock, Bobsled
  • Travis Ganong, Alpine Skiing
  • Joey Mantia, Speedskating
  • John Daly, Skeleton
  • Gus Kenworthy, Freestyle Skiing
  • Andrew Kurka, Paralympic Alpine Skiing
  • Chris Mazdzer, Luge
  • Tucker West, Luge

Besides the pick-up lines (‘I took second today, so you could come first’), perhaps the best part of the video is watching some of them get out of their uniforms. It definitely takes work.

Needless to say, getting to know these athletes better is going to be a lot of fun over the next two weeks.

The PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018 have officially begun. The Opening Ceremonies are tomorrow (9 February).
