10 Hot Female Olympic Athletes
With the Winter Olympics occurring every four years, there's no time like the present to give you a list of 10 hot female Olympic athletes.
- Tanith Belbin- Ice dancing may not sound like your cup of tea, but it's well worth the time if only to catch a glimpse of Belbin. The Canadian born skater received her American citizenship just in time for the 2006 games and will be back representing the USA in Vancouver.
- Gretchen Bleiler- Snowboarding is a goldmine for hot athletes, and the best of the bunch may very well be Bleiler. She won the silver medal four years ago then followed it up with an appearance in "Maxim."
- Kira Korpi- Although you may have never heard her name, Korpi may be the hottest athlete in Vancouver. The Finland native may just give you a reason to watch figure skating.
- Torah Bright- Another snowboarder, Bright is a native of Australia. At the age of 23, Bright should have more Olympic appearances in her future.
- Lindsey Vonn- As one of the faces of the 2010 Olympic games, no one has gotten more publicity than Vonn. She is favored to walk away with several medals and even posed for the "Sports Illustrated" 2010 swimsuit issue, supplanting her status as one of the hottest Olympic athletes.
- Julia Mancuso- Coming into the games, Mancuso was hidden in the shadow of Vonn, which is a shame. Mancuso is one of the best skiers in the world and no slouch in the looks department either.
- Kim Yu-Na- No Americans are expected to win the figure skating compeittion, but you can still enjoy watching Yu-Na, one of the event's favorites.
- Noelle Pikus-Pace- It's a shame her sport requires her to wear a helmet, because Noelle is certainly one of the hottest Olympic athletes. The Utah native competes in one of the most dangerous events—skeleton.
- Anni Friesinger- You may not expect to fin hot athletes at the speed skating rink, but you'd be wrong when it comes to Friesinger. The German native has done swimsuit modeling and appeared in the German edition of "Maxim."
- Hannah Teter- Aside from being a hot Olympic athlete, Teter is the 2006 Olympic champion in snowboarding. She also appeared alongside US teammate Lindsey Vonn in the 2010 "Sports Illustrated" Swimsuit issue.
