The Most Beautiful Olympic Athletes Of The Year

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.

Naked Tire-Swinging, Lawn-Watering ESPN Athletes

The annual 2011 ‘Body Issue’ of ESPN Magazine has been released! Well the photos have anyway and I have to warn you, they are pretty amazing for all the wrong reasons.
