French swimmer Florent Manaudou won the Mens 50m Freestyle in London!
Florent is the young brother of Laure Manaudou who is also an Olympic champion, which makes them the first swimming siblings to win Olympic golds … double bravo!
At 21 year old and with little experience, Florent Manaudou entered the London Games with only the 10th fastest time in the world this year. His goal before the games was simply to qualify for the eight-man final.
You may remember that we mentioned Florent a couple of times here on OhLaLa.
His speedo entrance for the festival de Cannes was quite something, but we also feature Florent when he shot the Hom Underwear Campaign with other French Swimmer [France / Hom Underwear Campaign With French Swimmers … OhLaLa!].
The picture below was taken last November in Rouen France during a swimming meeting. I think that this picture is very much appropriate today … Florent is the Golden King, and I see a bright future in both swimming and modeling/endorsement world (pretty sure he will be part of the next Dieux Du Stade Calendar too … wanna bet!?).
In other totally 'random' Olympic news, someone had another speedo slip … Check out the full pic after the dive.
