We're gonna have a hard time voting in this one…

While most Americans typically tune into the Olympics gymnastics competition solely to watch the incredibly talented women compete, their male counterparts hardly ever get as much attention.

However, team captain Sam Mikulak thinks he has the solution for getting more eyes on the U.S. Men's Olympic Gymnastics Team: Less clothing!

The 23-year-old hottie spoke to The Wall Street Journal on Sunday about introducing some objectification into the sport, saying:

"Maybe [we should] compete with our shirts off! People make fun of us for wearing tights. But if they saw how yoked we are maybe that would make a difference."

They are quite yoked, indeed!

But the question is… if Sam and the other gymnasts want to compete shirtless, should we let them??

V-v-vote in our sexy Olympics-inspired poll (below)!!!

Little things like this are what make the Olympics such a wild, wonderful event every four years!

Team USA gymnast Aly Raisman is having an incredibly successful Olympic Games at Rio this year, but you'd never know it by looking at her mom and dad watching every event in the stands!

Rick and Lynn Raisman have gone viral simply because of their weird, fidgety reactions to their daughter's flips, tumbles, turns, and jumps on the mat. Although this shouldn't be too surprising considering they were just like this at the 2012 London Olympics!

But knowing how much they care about her, and how badly they want her to succeed, it's actually a little cute.
