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

HEATHER MITTS, U.S.

Sport: Soccer
London will be the final Olympics for Mitts, who earned gold twice (in 2004 and 2008) with the U.S. national team. Now 34, the defender for Atlanta Beat happens to have topped several lists of the sexiest women in sports, and has parlayed her natural beauty into the occasional modeling job. "I feel like I'm probably the fittest I've ever been, and I'm healthy and loving playing," Mitts told NBCOlympics.com of going to London. "[It's] always been my plan to hopefully play in one last Olympics and to step away from the game kind of on my own terms."
