Name Those Abs: 2012 Olympian or ‘Magic Mike’? (Photos)

These Olympians have unparalleled skills—and they’re also ripped, like the stars of this summer’s other phenomenon. Can you guess if the abs in the following photos belong to an Olympian or a character from the male-stripper flick Magic Mike.

Sure, the Olympics brings together the best athletes in the world and their skills may be unparalleled, but they are also ripped. So ripped they remind many viewers of another phenomenon this summer. See if you can guess if the abs in the following photos belong to an Olympian or a cast member from the recent male-stripper flick Magic Mike.

It's Michael Phelps getting ready to compete in the men's 200m butterfly on July 30. After getting off to a bumpy start in this year's Olympics, Phelps won enough medals to bring his total haul to 20 (the most ever) and after he took gold in the 200m individual medley, he became the first swimmer ever to win the same event at three consecutive Olympics. So, no, those are not the abs of a stripper. But if he needs to make some extra cash during his retirement, who knows?

That's actor Matt Bomer who is probably most famous for his work in white pants, er, White Collar.

It's not an Olympian. It's Matthew McConaughey.

It's Matthew McConaughey again. He should probably invest in a good shirt.

Those abs belong to a proud member of Team USA after their gold-medal victory in the men's 4x200m freestyle relay on July 31. So, it's either Conor Dwyer, Michael Phelps, Ricky Berens or Ryan Lochte. We'll let you figure out which one. You're welcome.

That's Ryan Lochte, who managed to bring his Olympic medal count to 11 during the London Games. It's good, but he still trails rival Michael Phelps's count, and he lost to Phelps in at least one event. So Lochte's frequent prediction that "this is my time" did not exactly pan out. It may not have been Lochte's time, but those are most definitely his abs.

That's Cody Horn as Brooke in Magic Mike. The g-string bikini probably should have been the giveaway here.

Those belong to actor Alex Pettyfer. Surely you would have remembered seeing that cross tattoo in the pool if it had been an Olympian.

That's not a stripper; that's Russia's Anastasia Vasina celebrating with Anna Vozakova during a beach-volleyball match.
