Not everyone is celebrating the London 2012 Olympic Games right now. Women across the nation are watching from home, just hoping things will change in 2016. They either missed the cut or their sport just isn't Olympic worthy.
Regardless of why, these 25 beautifully talented female athletes aren't going to be in London in 2012 unless they plan on watching the games from the stands.
So, in their honor, I have put together a list of women that deserve recognition in these dark times. Enjoy the 25 women not in the Olympics still worthy of our time.
