The Summer Olympics are finally upon us! If it seems like the build up to the 2012 games in London has been going for years, that's because it has. But thankfully the long wait is over and now it's just time to sit back and see how it all goes.

No disrespect to the lovely Leryn Franco, but I prefer athletes who have beauty and a legitimate shot at gold. So I've put together a list of 20 beautiful athletes who have a chance to contend in their event and whose names you just might know after the Olympics.
