Bar Refaeli and Shaun White fueled dating rumors at the London Olympics when the couple showed up to watch the swimming competition together yesterday.
Refaeli joined White, her rumored beau, to watch Michael Phelps and Team USA compete in the men’s 4x200m freestyle relay. The two originally sparked dating rumors in May when they met at a Maxim party to honor the Israeli model as the Sexiest Woman In The World, reports The Huffington Post.
While the fact that they showed up together at the Olympics is not really conclusive evidence to support their dating rumor, Huffington Post calls it “a bold move for the 27-year-old model” who tweeted a photo of the male swimmers during the competition, adding, “I think I’ve died and reached heaven:).” (To be fair, Shawn White tweeted about appreciating the #bikinis during women’s beach volleyball the day before).
Bar Refaeli and Shaun White have been spotted “getting cozy” all across the country since the Maxim party in May. They were photographed in New York in June, and were seen walking along the Venice Beach just last week, reports The New York Daily News. The Israeli model and White seem to be getting close since their first picture at the May party, in which they were seen posing with their arms around each other, while Rafaeli tweeted, “Such a cool guy.”
White tweeted a picture after Michael Phelps won his 19th medal and Bar can be seen with her hand on the snowboarder’s shoulder. White wrote:

Refaeli, who split from her last boyfriend, Leonardo DiCaprio, just over a year ago, complained on Conan recently about a lack of attention she receives from guys. She stated:
“Let’s put it out there: no one hits on me. No one flirts with me. It’s very sad actually.”
Do you think that Bar Refaeli and Shaun White are dating?
