Divers, Rio 2016

NBC

Is naked diving the next Olympic sport? From the looks of these photos, we can only hope. If they can have cane fighting and tug-of-war in the Olympic Games back in the day, there is no reason why they can't incorporate a little skinny dipping into the mix today. If you haven't been keeping up, a very funny thing happened at the Olympics the other day during a men's diving event. You know that little bar of text that shows up on your TV screen to indicate the athlete's name and stats? It accidentally acted as an unnecessary censor bar, giving the illusion that the divers were competing in the buff. The Internet, which quickly approved of the hilarious images being broadcast, snapped pics of their TV's in response.

Honestly, when you have a diver with a name like Steele Johnson (see picture above for proof), how can you not act like a five-year-old when something like this happens? Like, come on! Sorry, not sorry. This is right up there with Tonga's oiled-up flag bearerPita Taufatofua. There are a ton of other snaps like these floating around on Twitter, and we rounded up our faves, so don't fret if you missed out on the action. Take a gander at these 'naked' divers showing off their assets (ha), toweling off and hamming it up for the cameras. You will not be disappointed.
