The Cutest Male Olympic Athletes of 2012: #2 - Alexandre Despatie
A 27 year old Canadian diver. Despatie began diving at the age of 5 in his own backyard pool.

Despatie suffered a head laceration and concussion when he struck his head on the springboard while practicing an inward 3 ½ June 12 at a training camp in Spain. The contact was at his hairline and left him with a four-inch gash that required stitches.
