Nathan Adrian Nude ESPN Body Issue Pictures. Nathan Ghar-jun Adrian (born December 7, 1988) is an American competitive swimmer and three-time Olympic gold medalist who currently holds the American record in the long course 50-meter freestyle event.
In his Olympic debut at the 2008 Summer Olympics, Nathan swam in the heats of the 4×100-meter freestyle relay and earned a gold medal when the United States team won in the final. Four years later, at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Nathan Adrian won gold medals in both the 100-meter freestyle and the 4×100-meter medley relay, and a silver medal in the 4×100-meter freestyle relay. He has won a total of twenty-four medals in major international competition, fifteen gold, six silver, and three bronze spanning the Olympics, the World, and the Pan Pacific Championships.
Nathan Adrian appeared in episode 5 of the 2009 season of the Discovery Channel series, MythBusters, to assist hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman in testing the myth that it is possible to swim as fast in syrup as in water. His test results however, were declared invalid by Savage and Hyneman, because they determined that Nathan was so used to swimming in water, that his technique was completely disrupted when swimming in the syrup. This disruption caused his lap times when swimming in syrup to vary wildly in comparison with his extremely consistent lap times in water.
