The 50 Hottest Olympic Athletes of All Time

Amanda Beard

Country: United States
Sport: Swimming
Best Finish: Gold (1996 Atlanta, 2004 Athens)

Beard has some excellent "hot girl" credentials: the cover of FHM and Playboy, a spot in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, Maxim's Hot 100, People's 100 Most Beautiful list, etc, etc. But don't let that distract you from the fact that Beard is a serious athlete with seven Olympic medals under her belt. She went from the 14-year-old squeezing her teddy bear on the medal stand in 1996 to earning the title of American Swimmer of the Year, twice.
