Summer Olympics 2012

12 Hot Female Olympians

Let the London games begin! Slide to see why these medal contenders are bringing the heat on and off the field

JESSICA ENNIS, U.K.

Sport: Track and Field
Considered one of Britain's best chances for a gold (and one of the top female athletes in the world), the 26-year-old heptathlete is Europe's current champion and a former world champion in the multidisciplinary event. Ennis is also one of only 10 women in history who have been able to achieve a high jump a foot over her own height – 5 ft., 5 in. Ennis, who had to sit out of the 2008 Olympics due to injury, isn't letting anything distract her from stepping onto the winner's podium, even putting her wedding on hold until after the Olympics.
