The Top 10 Sexiest Female Athletes in the Winter Olympics

5. Gretchen Bleiler, Snowboarding (U.S.A)

After being dubbed “too attractive” to continue living in her hometown of Toledo, Ohio, Gretchen Bleiler moved west to Colorado where she began a professional snowboarding career that would eventually earn her a 2009 Teen Choice Award nomination for "Best Other Action Sports Athlete – Female."

Bleiler is the reigning Olympic silver medalist and an accomplished X-Games competitor who, according to her impressively extensive Wikipedia page, has been a special guest panelist during “What Teens Want Week,” served as the editor of a graphic novel, and helps fight crime with the help of a possibly homosexual bird-named sidekick and elderly butler. Bleiler is also an outspoken advocate against global warming, which seems like a slight conflict of interest, given her job is dependant on cold weather and snow.

4. Julia Mancuso, Some Sort of Skiing (U.S.A.)

As the only American born athlete to serve as both an Olympic gold medalist and part-time lingerie model, Julia Mancuso is not just another spandex jockey hoping to parlay an impressive skiing performance into a Flavor of Love cameo, but she also serves as a welcomed contradiction to bitter feminists everywhere who claim that ugly women are just as likely to succeed as the beautiful ones.

Ever the pioneer, Mancusso has spent her life trying to make women’s sports less ugly by launching a campaign to help an “ongoing effort to showcase exceptional women ski athletes who are also attractive and inspiring.” The perfectly sculpted athlete (who was probably mean to fat people in high school) added that “underwear is my calling.” Because anybody can win gold medals, but it takes some serious talent to pose half naked for a Victoria’s Secret catalogue. 

3. Anni Friesinger, Speed Skating (Germany)

If the question “Which speed skating gold medalist has posed in German pornography?” ever comes up during family trivia night, remember the name “Anni Friesinger.” This 33-year-old bombshell nicknamed “Super Sexy Anni” (the Germans are more efficient than they are clever) spread her world class legs for Stern Magazine and has appeared half naked in several other Mensa-quality publications with shiny pictures and editorial content usually reserved for the back of cereal boxes.

 

2. Kiira Korpi, Figure Skate (Finland)

According to the inter-web, Finland is famous for baked goods, cell phones, and exceptional social benefits. What it doesn’t say (besides how to locate this adorable little country on a map) is how a nation regarded as the red-headed stepchild of Scandinavia has produced one of the single hottest athletes to compete at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. As a barely legal addition to the women’s figure skating program, Korpi is a breath of beautiful air in a sport that has recently lost a bit of its feminine luster.

(Let's avoid the obvious "bonus points for flexibility" comment.)

1. Tanith Belbin, Ice Dancing (U.S.A)

Outside of an entertainingly high amount of post-routine crying and a collection of fuchsia spandex that would make Prince stand up in his six-inch rhinestone heels to apathetically applaud, there's very few aspects of Olympic Ice Dancing that make it more entertaining than an episode of Who Wants to Make Love to Drew Carey Behind An Ohio Convenience Store? (Which is a shockingly high-rated program amongst South American prison inmates.) It's slow, dull, and features a disgusting amount of Celine Dion love ballads. Much like professional bowling or any Renée Zellweger movie, there's virtually no reason to ever watch. That is, of course, except for Tanith Belbin.

The 25-year-old ice princess won a silver medal in the 2006 Winter Olympics (losing to someone less attractive/deserving) and will try to finally achieve her lifelong dream later this week - which is either winning a gold medal or giving teenage boys with parental Internet restrictions a healthy alternative.
