I think my favorite is the first one with his black costume :)

Momstart:> He's a European who won many times in the tournaments last year. :)

catsynth:> I like the pattern on the black costume as well.

I wonder what's their usual weight. Colorful costume.

I love lobster and the blue costume has a lobster on the emblem, so that on gets my vote. :) Amazing colors on those costumes, by the way!

I have not seen you posting for a little while or did I just miss you?
These are awesome the colors the lighting... wow! Best part is the look of focus on their faces!

I never realized how brilliantly colored their costumes are. Nice shots. :D

This is the first time I've seen them in anything but the g-string looking thing they wear in the matches. Never knew there was a fashion component to the sport!
