Chris Pratt shirtless and sweaty: Enough said, right?!

The Guardians of the Galaxy star skipped Sunday's big MTV Movie Awards to compete in the Half-Iron Man triathlon in Haines City, Fla. The 35-year-old hunk, who was nominated for Best Male Performance and Movie of the Year, participated in the event for a very special cause.

"If you voted for me or ‪#‎GOTG‬ for the ‪#‎MTVMovieAwards‬ that's really awesome of you, I appreciate the support. Sadly I will be missing the show," Pratt wrote on his Facebook prior to the triathlon. "On Sunday I'm joining former Navy SEAL Mike Day as he participates in a grueling half ironman to raise money and awareness for our nations brain injured heroes."

He added, "It's the same day as the #MTVMovieAwards. I wish I could be two places at once. I decided to do this race months before the MTV nominations even came out. The movie awards undoubtedly makes for a special night. But I'm committed to this race and dammit I'm gonna do it! I hope to help raise awareness and money for a great cause and true hero."

What a great guy!

In addition to supporting a great cause, Pratt's triathlon also gave fans an opportunity to see the star shirtless! In the end, Pratt completed the race, which consisted of a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride and a 13.1-mile run for a total of 70.3 miles, in 7 hours, 4 minutes and 52 seconds.

Great job!
