Mitt Romney’s republican vice presidential candidate was seen shirtless in a photograph revealing his upper body near a pool with his wife Jana.
Less than a week after being named the republican candidate’s running mate, this photograph of Paul Ryan emerged and went viral on the web.
Google, Yahoo and MSN searches for “Paul Ryan shirtless” soared in the hours after the announcement.
The photo of the 42-year old running mate was “taken roughly six years ago,” before Ryan started the P90X workout, reports TMZ. The photo is reportedly from a family vacation in Oklahoma and features Ryan’s wife Janna.
ABC News reports, Ryan has been open about his devoption to fitness and his healthy eating habits. His father, grandfather and great-grandfather died from heart attacks in their 50s.
Whether more recent shirtless pictures will emerge as the campaign continues remains to be seen.
Not to be outdone, here is a photo of Mitt Romney shirtless.
