They’re Sexy and They Pwned It: Olympic Hotties Who Made the Team [PHOTOS]
Let’s be honest here folks, we watch the Olympics only 50 percent of the time for sports action. The other 50 percent we spend waiting for body action—a full on showcase of those ripped athletic abs. At the trials we watched in agony as each hopeful stepped up to the plate for their shot at The Games, knowing full well that if they didn’t make it, we might never see their beautiful bodies again.
Now that the trials are over we know for a fact who will be representing Team USA in London and thus, are finally able to celebrate those steamy sports stars who made it. They’re sexy and they “pwned it” at the trials, scoring a spot on the team and a spot in our hearts. Here are some of the hotties you’ll be watching this year—other than Ryan that is.
Kessy is a beach volleyball player from San Clemente, Calif. According to NBC Sports she just narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, but lucky for you she will be strutting her beach bod across the sand this summer. In addition to being a sports star, Kessy is also a CoverGirl. The beautiful blonde is one of the new faces for the makeup brand promoting their mascara and all-day lip color for a limited time.
Richards-Ross is a track and field champion from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. This year’s competition will not be her first Olympics. According to NBC Sports she won a bronze in the 400 meter dash and gold in the 4×400 meter relay at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. This year you will be able to watch her—and her incredible legs—sprint across the finish line once more as she competes again in the 400 meter dash.
Morgan is a soccer star from Diamond Bar, Calif. Besides being known for her athletic prowess as an Olympian, the 23-year-old also garnered a lot of attention this year for posing inside of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. The gorgeous gal stripped down wearing nothing but body paint. God Bless America. You can take a closer look at those photos here and catch Morgan on the field in London when the Olympics begin.
Orozco is a gymnast from Bronx, N.Y. who first stole our hearts as an Olympic hopeful in Gym Class Heroes‘ music video for, “The Fighter.” Now that it has finally been announced that Orozco is on the U.S. Men’s Gymnastics team, no one could be prouder than the band. “Our brother John Orozco made it onto the U.S. Olympic team! Keep fighting the good fight, and bring home some gold,” the group posted on their blog.
Swimming isn’t the only sport where you can watch sexy men with their shirts off. Boudia is a diver for Team USA originally from Abilene, Texas, but who now lives in Noblesville, Ind. Switching states isn’t the only move that Boudia made while working on his athletic career. According to NBC Sports he “knew he wanted to be an Olympian at age 7, then tried different sports before diving stuck.” Well thank goodness for that.
Hunter is a boxer born-and-raised in Las Vegas, Nev, but don’t be intimidated by his love of the rough and tumble sport. According to NBC Sports Hunter, the son of late boxing legend Mike “the Bounty” Hunter, “enjoys writing poetry.” How sweet! We’re sure the elder Hunter would have been very proud of his son. If he wins at the Olympics in London, the young Hunter will be the first to score a gold medal for Team USA since 1964.
