Team GB Olympic discus thrower Lawrence Okoye, 21, from Croydon has been tweeting the idea of taking a few snapshots of Team GB stars to create a calendar for 2013.
Definitely think we should organise an athlete calendar for 2013 – who's keen??? Spread the word!!

Sounds like a good idea Lawrence, just as long as you have a month dedicated to Louis Smith. Oow I would definitely have that on the X mas wish list!
Oh yes, and of course poster girl Jessica Ennis; got to have something for the fellas.
Looks as if 400m hurdler Perri Shakes-Drayton and sprinter Harry Aikine-Aryettey agrees adding:

@Shakesdrayton @lawrenceokoye1 I'm in! Lol

Sounds like a few would be game, and after a number of replies back, I think the athletes have no choice but to give the fans what they want. What they really really want.

Even up and coming athletes like Brett Morse from Cardiff, who wasn’t even at the Olympics, are up for a bit of glamour modelling:
@LawrenceOkoye1 I'm game for naked pics

Well Brett let’s just hope everyone else is as eager as you!

Have a look at the full calendar below (click the arrow at the bottom right to change month tabs) and let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
