It has not been a great year for Olympian swimmers not named Phelps to get a lot of media attention. Another swimmer however, has managed to carve out his own piece of social media. 'I want to touch your abs' is one of the most common thing people are yelling at Chinese swimmer Ning Zetao.
'The 23-year-old, who was named China's sports personality of the year in 2015, recently featured on the cover of Elle Men and social media users have branded the athlete a 'stud'
'6 Years ago I began my fitness journey as a 90 pound frail, lanky, near emaciated teen looking to build confidence and become comfortable in my own skin. Although my central goal has always been muscular development, I quickly fell in love with strength training as an integral part of acquiring the physique of my dreams.'
'Physical changes don’t occur overnight, but chasing strength became a source of constant motivation for me, a goal to strive for day in and day out in the gym, a goal which I could see materialize from training session to training session.'
