9. Gretchen Bleiler
Possibly the cutest girl ever to pull on a pair of salopettes (“salopettes” is the best word to say out loud ever in case you didn’t know) and plunge into a twenty foot half pipe made of ice. Not only is she insanely lovely, she’s the four time X-Games superpipe champion. A superpipe is a half pipe with walls 20 metres high — that’s bonkers right.
10. Kiira Korpi
Finnish? Tick. Blonde? Tick. Beautiful? Tick. Ranked in the top 15 world figure skaters? Tick. Alliterative name? Tick.
Then I think we can all agree — we have the perfect woman. You won’t understand a word she says, but you don’t really need to.
11. Kim Yu-Na
This 19-year-old South Korean is the 2009 world figure skating champion and is the bookies’ favourite for gold going into the games. When lovely Kim was just a shining junior talent she was forced to practise through the night such were her school commitments. And her gold medal winning dance? 007 James Bond Medley. You’ve got to love that.
12. Kristi Leskinen
American freestyle skier Kristi was ranked 90 in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in 2005 — which is certainly higher than we’ve ever been ranked. At 17 Kristi had the choice to become a pro-skier or pro-wakeboarder. We think she made the right choice, because in 2005 Kristi became the first woman to ever pull a Rodeo 720 — that’s two full rotations while upside down. Awesome.
