PHOTOS: It takes balls to pose nude, but New Zealand speed skater Blake Skjellerup already proved he had brass ones when he became one of the few openly gay athletes to compete in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. (He’s also planning to enter the 2014 Games in gay-unfriendly Russia.)

    I have been to the mountaintop. I have seen the promised land. And it is glorious.

    I just want to second the opinion of Caleb in SC. Blake is breathtakinly beautiful.

    Good looking guy, but some people will do anything for publicity.
