The Dutch field hockey team at the 2012 Olympics have been unofficially named the most beautiful team in London and they’re actually good! They won a gold medal in 2008’s Beijing games and a silver in 2004 (with different players, of course).
I’m going to add more unofficially beautiful Olympians to this list but just know that I’m still bitter that Nastia Liukin isn’t there. Not because she’s “beautiful” but because I like to yell “NASTIA” out the window at the top of my lungs and it makes less sense now.
Here’s the dynamic women’s beach volleyball duo of Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor, gold medalist Ryan Lochte, and Maria Shapova, who beat Shahar Peer in an indoor match on Sunday.
Soccer star Hope Solo (famous for watering the lawn in her birthday suit in the 2011 ESPN Body Issue), wrestler Jordan Burroughs and 29-year-old virgin Lolo Jones who recently got in trouble for tweeting:
“USA Men’s Archery lost the gold medal to Italy but that’s ok, we are Americans… When’s da Gun shooting competition?”
Decathlon specialist Trey Hardee, Sophie Polkamp of the famous Dutch field hockey team, and pensive gymnast Danell Leyva.
Soccer player Alex Morgan (number one most Googled thing on The Twist for two days straight) Aussie swimmer James Magnussen, and sprinter Allyson Felix.
German judo expert Romy Tarangul (once posed for Playboy), tennis junkie Ana Ivanovic, and hurdler Christina Vukicevic.
Italian boxer Clemete Russo, track and field’s David Oliver, and rower Giuseppe Lanzone.
Barbies volleyball players Kolocová Kristýna and Sluková Markéta.
