We love that the SEA Games 2017 is being held in Malaysia. Even more reasons to be pleased? These hunky athletes from all over the region are here to compete. It’s time to show how hospitable we can be as host. Here are the 10 dashing dudes to cheer on.
HARRY MORRIS, 32
Rugby, The Philippines
This Filipino-British athlete is also known for starring in the Pinoy romantic reality TV series I Do Back. So not only can he tackle you on the field, he can thrill you with his thespian skills.
SARACH YOOYEN, 25
He’s a big hit in the Land Of A Thousand Smiles, and his Instagram posts @tangsr_6 will make you grin like a chimp as well. When not playing footie, he loves modelling in street fashion.
JOSEPH SCHOOLING, 22
He’s the Lion City’s first ever Olympic gold medalist, and he beat Michael Phelps to one, too! Plus, he’s pretty cute on Instagram.
S. SENTHIL KUMARAN, 25
Here’s a guy who can protect you 24/7. He scored his second SEA Games gold after a hard-fought win in the men’s kumite below 60kg final.
PHAM PHUOC HUNG, 28
He spent two decades of his life dedicated to training for gymnastics glory. It’s paid off bicep-fully as you can see @phuochunggym.
TYLER CHRISTIAN RUIZ, 23
Long Jump, The Philippines
He’s an expert at leaping, and his Instagram @ty_ruiz is just flaunting with posts of his athletic prowess.
IKHSAN FANDI, 18
He’s the offspring of Singaporean football legend Fandi Ahmad and fashion model Wendi Jacobs. Sort of the Asian version of a Posh & Becks progeny.
WELSON SIM, 20
He beat Olympic champion Mack Horton in the 400m freestyle at the Mare Nostrum Tour Swimming Championship in June. Now he’s won our hearts again by winning the men’s swimming 200m freestyle gold at SEA Games.
TRISTAN DO, 24
The Paris-born footballer has dreamy eyes, bad boy tattoos, and he knows how to score. What’s not to love?
PRINCE ABDUL MATEEN, 26
Equestrian Polo, Brunei
He’s sixth in line to the Brunei throne. Looking like a Disney prince doesn’t hurt either.
