Tokyo was hot this summer not just because of the potentially record-breaking heat wave. Fans pay attention to the athletes’ technique and skill when entering the competition, but there is also room to see who are the most handsome. Read on to find out more about the best looking athletes in 2020 Olympics.
The Tokyo 2020 Games were an unprecedented demonstration of unity and solidarity as the world came together for the first time following the COVID-19 pandemic for an Olympic Games focused on the pure essentials: a celebration of athletes and sport.
This sense of solidarity was critical to the success of the Tokyo 2020 Games following their historic one-year postponement, especially in the establishment of the Tokyo 2020 Playbooks—guidelines for safe and secure participation and operations. The Playbooks set a new standard for large-scale sporting events and ensured that everyone from athletes to the media would be able to safely take part in the Games.
However, the Olympics were officially declared a frigid no-fan zone due to COVID-19 restrictions and so it was up to the globe’s most elite athletes to bring the real heat.
There is no doubt that Olympic athletes are incredibly fit. But while most are on the top of their game—competitively speaking—not all Olympians are eye candy. Though there are a few that could well be models or Hollywood stars! These athletes have won the DNA lottery many times over.
As a sports event, the Olympic Games is also a visual feast. In the past, there were always many high-value athletes that would impress sports fans. In a sense, their presence can help promote the event and increase ratings.
In this article, we focus on both male and female athletes, comprehensively selecting the top handsome athletes of this year.
Full name: Alica Schmidt
Date of birth: 8 November 1998 (age 22)

Weight: 55 kg (121 lb)
Sport: Track and field; Athletics Running
The first on the list of the
best looking athletes in 2020 Olympics
is Alica Schmidt. Already dubbed the “world’s sexiest athlete” by media outlets galore, this 22-year-old German hurdler had fans slavering in anticipation of her Olympic debut.
Thankfully, the blond-haired, blue-eyed bombshell punched her ticket to Tokyo and will be competing in the women’s 4×400 relay and the Games’ first-ever 4×400 mixed relay.
“Still feels unreal! I’m so grateful and at the same time thrilled to experience something I have been dreaming of since I started all of this!” Schmidt captioned an Instagram photo to her 1.8 million followers of herself posing in front of the Olympic rings. The chariot of fire frequently posts sweltering snaps of her training sessions to her nearly 2 million followers. However, Schmidt is more than just a visual smoke show.
The Worms native has been scorching up the track for years, notably winning silver in the 4×400 relay at the 2017 European Athletics Under-20 Championship as well as bronze at the U23 Europeans in 2019.
Also a spokesperson for a variety of German food brands, the fit-fluencer reportedly enjoys eating healthy and cooking when her busy schedule allows.
The German track and field star explained why she bowed out of the Tokyo Olympics, "After an in practice race simulation I wasn’t able to secure my spot in the line up for the prelims," Schmidt wrote in the caption. She shared a photo of herself posing in front of a large statue of the Olympic Rings.
"I’m so grateful for all of the love and support that I have been receiving on this journey. Now I can’t wait to cheer on my girls today and hope that we can make it into the Olympic final!," Schmidt continued, referencing Friday’s 4x400m relay event.
After thanking her fans and followers for their "incredible support," Schmidt expressed that she’s looking forward to her future in track and field.
"I couldn’t be more thankful for all the experiences I have already made during my time in Tokyo," the Puma-sponsored athlete wrote. "I’ve been able to learn so many things and can’t wait where my athletic career will take me in the upcoming years."
Here’s a non-exhaustive list of the good-looking athletes that were upping the watchable factor of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Full name: Georgia Lorraine Ellenwood
Date of birth: August 5, 1995 (age 26)
Place of birth: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Height: 170 cm (5 ft 7 in)
Weight: 63 kg (139 lb)
Sport: Track and field
First-time Olympian Georgia Ellenwood is a Canadian runner who is competing in the Women’s Heptathlon at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
She has gotten 1st place for both Canadian Track and Field Championships, and NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2018.
“That was one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to endure,” Ellenwood commented.
“But I didn’t make it to the Olympics just to make it to the Olympics.”
It was extremely hot and humid in Tokyo on the day of the women’s heptathlon, with temperatures of 34 degrees recorded in the morning, but Ellenwood was unsure whether she was suffering from dehydration or heat stroke.
She commented on Tokyo 2020, “I had to dig deeper than I’ve ever had to before in a competition,” Ellenwood shared. I was going to finish, one way or another.”
She described trying to push through the first couple of events while nausea, fatigue and dizziness kept building.
Ellenwood finished ninth of 10 runners in that event, one of seven track and field events in the heptathlon, under a points system that awards higher scores for better results in each of the seven components.
Full name: Thomas Robert Daley
Date of birth: 21 May 1994 (age 27)

Weight: 74 kg (163 lb)
Spouse(s): Dustin Lance Black (m. 2017)
Tom Daley is the Britain’s most decorated diver and a television personality. Specializing in multiple events, he is an Olympic gold medalist in the men's synchronized 10-metre platform event at the 2020 Olympics and double world champion in the FINA 10-metre platform event, winning in 2009 at the age of fifteen, and again in 2017.
In terms of strength, Tom Daley's level is not bad. Personally, he has twice won the World Championships by jumping from the platform, but he did so well in the Olympics. The highest achievement was the bronze medal in the 2012 London Olympics.
For the Chinese diving team, Daly has a certain threat in the single event, but not too much, and his double platform combination with Marty Lee is a very tricky opponent. For all reasons, they won the Diving World Cup this year, and they are in hot form.
In 2013, Daley came out – a rarity among professional sportspeople – and he has become a campaigner for LGBTQ+ rights. Now 27, he is married to the screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, with whom he has a three-year-old son.
The man pictured with Tom Daley is also worth a little introduction. This person is named Dustin Lance Black (left), an American screenwriter and director, Daley's partner, who once relied on "Milk" The script won the 2008 Oscar Award for original script.
He said about their first meeting, “We met each other at dinner in Los Angeles, in March 2013. Our mutual friend brought some friends, of which Lance was one. In that first week, we said we loved each other and we named our children. And here we are, four years married and with a three-year-old son.”
His dad who was his biggest champion passed away and he describes it a burden to cope with that event. My dad once said, “If you go into a competition with 18 people in it and you come last, as long as you do your best, you’re 18th-best in the whole country.
How cool is that?” I want to be able to pass that on to Robbie – it’s not about which medal you win, it’s about the attitude you have.

Rubio, 31 years old, is an absolute superstar in the FIBA arena, a veteran player in the NBA, and a leader of the Spanish men's basketball team. From the former Spanish basketball golden boy at the Beijing Olympics to the bearded uncle on the field today, I don't understand what he thinks.
It's just that, without a definite face value, a normal man can't stand his style at all. Even if you take a selfie casually, you can still see that Rubio's looks are very good. To be honest, if Rubio is very handsome, it is better to say that he is very beautiful and very special.

As the core of Slovenia, Dončić performed very well in the qualifiers. Slovenia's overall performance is not weak, and it is very likely that it will rush to the podium in the Tokyo Olympics.
In terms of appearance, the blond-headed Doncic may not be the kind of amazing-looking boy, but he is definitely a handsome guy with a nice look, and his temperament is very sunny and warm. In addition, Dongcic, who loves to eat ham, is also a proof that a man can look comfortable even if he is slightly fat.

In this year's Tokyo Olympics, Armand Duplantis is the number one favorite to win the men's pole vault event, and he is also likely to dominate the field in the future. In terms of appearance, Armand has thick eyebrows and big eyes, sharp lines on his face, and a little bit against the English football star Glarish.

Medina joined the world's elite of the World Surf League Tour in 2011, and in his rookie year he finished within the top 12 of the ASP (now WSL) World Tour at the age of 17.
As a samba boy with thick eyebrows and big eyes, Gabriel has similarities with tennis king Federer between his eyebrows and eyes. In terms of strength, Gabriel Medina should not be underestimated.

The beauty of the gymnastics field also has athletes represented by the British star Max Whitlock. For this British gymnastic genius, I believe everyone should not be unfamiliar.
At the Rio Olympics, he defeated the best in floor exercise and pommel horse events and won gold medals. For the Chinese gymnastics team, he is a very threatening opponent.
Zheng Shengyuan is definitely among the
top 10 hottest Olympic athletes of all time
. The handsome footballer is currently playing for the Daegu Football Club. His name is Zheng Shengyuan. He was born in 1997. Jeong Seung-won, who was 24 years old at the time, rotates forwards for the Korean Olympic team and currently plays for Daegu FC.
Although his achievements in the football field are not particularly outstanding and are still in a rising period, many domestic fans are still quite impressed by him, because he has the appearance of a top-notch artist and he does not mix with Korean entertainment.
Choose a football circle that speaks for its strength. In terms of facial features, Zheng Shengyuan is very good, and he has to lose out on his body, because he is only 170cm tall.
The representative of the Korean football team, Zheng Seung, was only 24 years old in his first year. He played for the Daegu FC football team in Korea and was responsible for the forward position in the team. He was selected as the Korean U-23 national football team two years ago.

Morgan was literally considered one of the most beautiful athletes at the age of 22. But that can be hard to claim today as she is married and has a child to care for.
THE footie ace already has an Olympic gold after her side triumphed at the 2012 London Games.
The ex-Spurs striker, 32, upset England fans at the 2019 World Cup by miming sipping tea after scoring against us, but later said the gesture was taken the wrong way.
Alex Morgan won an Olympic bronze medal with the US Women's National Team in Tokyo. The star told reporters that she'll cherish the medal, but her Olympics experience wasn't what she had hoped.
Morgan said, it "was a lot more challenging, both physically and mentally," than she'd anticipated.
Morgan spent 35 days away from her 15-month-old daughter to chase gold at the Olympics, only to return with bronze, and the pandemic fundamentally changed the nature of the games.
