Sochi's Top 10 Sexiest Olympic Athletes
What makes the 36-year-old ski racer so attractive isn't just that he's gotten better with age (he just nabbed his sixth Olympic medal), but he's also in touch with his emotions. The New Hampshire native was in tears after his third place finish in the super-G earlier this week. But then he had an outright breakdown when a reporter asked him if the win was for his younger brother, Chilly, who passed away last spring. Rather than get mad at the reporter, he defended her to the media, saying she was just doing her job.
The former summer Olympic hurdler who recently switched gears to bobsledding in a quest for an Olympic medal didn't make it to the podium this time (she placed 11th). Still, the 31-year-old bright-eyed babe from Iowa was incredibly gracious. “Bobsled has made me stronger. The lesson in humbleness is definitely gold for sure,” she told the AP recently.
The sexy Swedish goalie may spend most of his time hitting pucks away from the net for the New York Rangers, but in Sochi, his allegiance is with his motherland.

Watching the Michigan native cheer on his peers as the captain of the figure skating team event, where the U.S. placed third, was so adorable. The floppy, dirty-blond, boy-next-door look (is it just us, or does he seriously resemble Bryan Krakow from My So-Called Life?) also makes us wanna take the 26-year-old home to mama.
The fierce and fast Austrian beauty, 24, dominated the treacherous course of the super-G in Sochi, simultaneously winning an Olympic gold as well as seductive stares from our boyfriends. Move over Lindsey Vonn, there's a new smoking-hot superstar on the slopes.
Nope, we're not talking about the makeup artist or the R&B singer who was married to the late Whitney Houston. Meet the other, better-looking Bobby Brown: the 23-year-old sexy slopestyle skier from Denver who finished ninth in Sochi. Now when you hear the name, hopefully this killer smile will flash in your mind.
The men of curling, who put out a seriously sexy charity calendar this year, aren't the only ones turning heads. This Russian curler, 24, who was once a promising figure skater until a leg injury forced her to hang up her skates, is so hot, she has the ability to melt ice. Case in point: Notice there's no ice under her as she seductively poses in black lingerie and heels in this photo that ran in the UK's
The double-Olympic speed-skating champion from Chicago might not have liked his Olympic outfit (there's been heated debate over the high-tech uniforms costing the U.S. speed-skating team medals), but the 31-year-old looked damn good in his body-hugging onesie from where we were sitting.
Slovenia's 30-year-old Olympic champion, who recently won gold in the downhill and giant slalom, is a rockstar off the slopes too.
