Apparently, Danell Leyva feels that his skintight uniform just isn’t revealing enough. The US gymnast, who helped his team struggle to a disappointing fifth place finish during last night’s competition, has more on his mind than pommel horses and parallel bars. Danell apparently really enjoys sending naked pics of himself to random women he meets online.
Several photos of Danell in various states of undress were submitted to Deadspin by a woman who claims Danell “played” her on a promised photo exchange, and that he’s pulled his scam on other women as well. Danell is only 20 and this is his first time in the spotlight, so this error in judgment is sort of understandable, but c’mon, dude….ya gotta keep your face out of more your more risque bathroom mirror shots. Talk about a rookie mistake.
The Olympic committee has some strict policies regarding “conduct” and “decorum” and other words that basically mean “don’t do drugs and keep it in your pants,” but Danell hasn’t broken any rules, so the only consequences of his iPhone shenanigans will be some good-natured ribbing in the Olympic village.
