We’re all fans of the Olympics, of cheering on our country surrounded by friends, family, food, and beer. Saying that, it’s always far easier when there is some eye candy to look at.


As usual, the pool seems to be the best place to find some Olympic eye candy and cheekily check out all of the competitors. It’s probably something about those tight bathing suits and dripping wet bodies mixed in with exceptional sporting ability.


Anyway… back on topic. Ning Zetao is the Chinese Olympic swimmer currently taking the internet by storm. He specializes in short freestyle events such as the 100-meter and 50-meter sprints and competed on August 9th and 11th respectively.

see you again my buddy

Aside from his obvious good looks, during his short competitive career, he has shown incredible talent in the pool. He began his swim training at the age of 8, where his parents encouraged him to lead an active life and be comfortable in the water. After quickly grasping different swimming styles and showing ability far beyond those of his age, he was welcomed into the PLA Navy swim team and hasn’t slowed down since. He has won multiple competitions around the world and proved himself time and time again.


Ning first caused a stir during the 2014 Incheon Asian games where he was voted the “most attractive male athlete.” Soon afterward, he became the spokesperson for Skullcandy, FitBit China, Alexander Wang, and De Beers China. More recently he has been featured on the 2016 August cover of Elle Men China, which led to rumors that he would be unable to compete in the Olympic games at Rio (as they have a strict advertising policy).

Ning goes by the name “Baozi” which means steamed bun in Chinese.
