UK gay glossy Attitude has
revealed its HOT 100 winner: Australian bobsledder Simon Dunn.
Dunn knocked two-time winner Tom Daley
from the top spot. Daley fell to fourth place in this year's survey.
When he joined the Australian bobsleigh
team last year, Dunn became the sport's first openly gay athlete.
“It's flattering enough to have been
voted on to the HOT 100 at all but to think I have been voted number
one and beat guys like Tom Daley and Liam Payne is beyond me!” Dunn
said. “I'm absolutely convinced my mother had all her friends
vote for me – thanks mum!”
“I just want to say thanks to
everyone who voted for me for their ongoing support and I hope that
my win can help spread the word about equality in sport. If I can
make one young gay teen see that sexuality shouldn't be a factor in
sport then that's a win in itself,” he added.
Coming in at second place was Channing
Tatum. Also in the top five were Liam Payne (3), Tom Daley (4) and
Chris Evans (5).
