5 Olympians Who are Also Models

They’re multitalented that way!

 

1. Rafael Nadal

 

 

The Spaniard has appeared in Shakira’s music video for her single “Gitana” (watch above video) and the ad campaigns of Tommy Hilfiger and Emporio Armani Underwear. Together with Tommy Hilfiger, he has also launched the THFLEX Rafael Nadal Edition capsule collection.

 

 

2. Bradley Wiggins

Just like Nadal, the British cyclist has done more than modeling. Wiggins is a long-time partner of Fred Perry and has collaborated with the brand for multiple capsule collections.

 

 

3. Pita Taufatofua

 

   

The taekwondo athlete became an overnight sensation when he went shirtless while carrying the flag of his country, Tonga, during the Opening Ceremony. Between practices, Taufatofua also models once in a while. And, as evidenced by the image above, he’s Adriana Lima-approved.                

 

 

4. Miles Chamley-Watson

 

 

Not only an amazingly talented athlete (he’s the first American to win the fencing championships), Chamley-Watson is also a great model and has walked down the runways at fashion weeks in New York and Madrid.

 

 

5. Luca Dotto

 

 

The Italian swimmer is the former star of Emporio Armani Underwear & Eyewear and Acqua di Gio fragrance’s ad campaigns.

Adrian is also one of the faces of Tommy Hilfiger. Unlike Nadal, Adrian may not have a capsule collection (yet), but he has served as a guest editor on the brand’s blog.
