JR Celski Tattoo Heats Up The Internet

JR CelskiI’ve been watching and learning about U.S. short track speedskater JR Celski during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. I’m always on the lookout for people who are about to have a breakthrough on their advance to fame. I want to be there at the beginning. I knew as soon as I saw JR that he was someone who could gain celebrity status.

Of course he was already well known to people who follow speedskating, but not so much to the general public. That changed a little when he won the bronze medal in the 1500m and it was well publicized how miraculous it was to get a medal considering his leg had been severely injured only five months before. However, his stock really shot up, strangely really, after he was disqualified in the semifinals of the 1000m. He unzipped his suit and revealed a sexy chest and big tattoo and the internet went crazy as people wanted to know more about him. They thought he was hot, hot, hot.

The basic design of the tattoo is the sun and star combination from the flag of the Philippines. Within the sun pattern is the coat of arms of the Republic of Poland.  Celski combined the two elements to reflect his multi-ethnic ancestry. His mother is a Filipino-American and his father is  Polish-American.

Considering he’s in the same sport and events as the number one American star of the Games, Apolo Anton Ohno, it would be expected that he would be overshadowed and overlooked during the Games. However, people who get paid to spot future stars had clearly marked him for a bright future. During the Olympics he was in national commercials for McDonald’s and Proctor & Gamble. The week before he was on The Biggest Loser. The week before that he was chosen to be one of the athletes  to appear on national television to model the ceremony uniforms for Team USA. We can expect to see more of him.
