GODS OF JAVELIN: Andreas Thorkildsen of Norway

The Norwegian photographer John Andresen started the decade with a bang with the full-frontal nude pictures of hockey player Karl Esper Ygranes, creating expectations that there would be a great harvest henceforth but he lay low (so to speak) after that: he still features naked Norwegian athletes but the most that could be seen are bits of scrotum & hints of phallic bases. I actually like Andresen's photography, his photos are crisp & lean, & makes his models look good. He should try to regain his Ygranes feat by convincing Andreas, the world javelin champion, to restore Norwegian pride in their manhood. If Ygranes started the decade with a bang, perhaps Thorkildsen will end the decade with an explosion.
