Olympians We’d Like to Be Our Valentine
With all due respect to our wonderful female readers out there on this Valentine’s Day, this one is for the boys. The ladies can keep the Hallmark cards, chocolates and flowers……the men get this. And with that being said here are the Olympic athletes we’d most like to be our Valentine.
Jennie Finch – A softball pitcher extraordinaire for Team USA, she won gold in Athens in 2004 and silver in the 2008 Beijing games.
Christina Vukicevic – A Norwegian hurdler she competed in the 2008 summer games in Beijing.
Leryn Franco – A Paraguayan javelin thrower (and full time model) she competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Heather Mitts – A defender for USA’s women’s soccer team, she’s a three-time Olympic gold medalist.
Hilary Knight – A forward for Team USA in Sochi……she’s reason enough to tune into women’s hockey.
Lolo Jones – A two-time summer Olympics competitor in the hurdles for the USA, she’s in Sochi now as a member of the bobsled team.
Liu Xuan – A Chinese gymnast she won gold and bronze in the 2000 summer games in Sydney.
Darya Klishna – A Russian long jumper she didn’t actually make her country’s team in the 2012 London Olympics…..but honestly we really didn’t care.
