Here at the Bleacher Report, we’re not just all about box scores, and final scores, but the athletes who compete as well.
And with the Winter Olympics underway, we could bore you with the same boring stories and slideshows, but why bother?
Especially when there are beauties like Brit skier Chemmy Alcott competing.
Chemmy is a born and raised Brit, and basically has spent her entire life on the slopes.
She competed in her first race at age three, and by age 11 won her first race. She was also named the 1994 & 1995 Junior Sportswoman of the Year in England. While we’d like to comment more on her looks at this age, it’d be immoral (not to mention likely illegal) to do so. Let’s just move on.
Chemmy was practically bred to be a champion, as she spent her summers from ages 12 to 19 in New Zealand training because of lack of suitable conditions in Britain.
On a serious note, at the age of 12 Chemmy broke her neck in a horrific skiing accident, but to her credit eventually returned to the slopes. That’s the kind of tough girl that we can’t help but love.
Before we get to any more skiing related stuff, can we just take a minute to enjoy her beauty.
I don’t think it matters whether she’s wearing her ski uniform or a cocktail dress. This girl is hot!!!!
I think I prefer the cocktail dress.
As she became older, Chemmy became one of the elite females on the slopes anywhere in the world.
She was a Junior Champion in 2001 and 2002, before competing in her first Olympics in Salt Lake City in 2002.
While she didn’t medal in Salt Lake City it was an important learning experience for Chemmy whose best skiing was still in front of her.
It is also gave all of us an international stage to get to know the sexy Alcott.
She just missed a top 10 finish in 2006 in Torino.
She is very proud of her several top 10 World Cup race finishes in Downhill, Giant Slalom and Super Combined and is going for Gold in Vancouver this year.
Time for another break from all the skiing talk.
Here Chemmy is all smiles. I’d like to imagine it’s from a funny joke I just told her. Oh God, did I just say that out loud?
Skiing, the focus is supposed to be on skiing right?
Anyway, after the 2002 Olympics, Chemmy quickly became a star in the sport, winning five British Skiing Championships in 2002 alone.
What’s that, more pretty pictures of Chemmy? Ok…
What’s the matter Chemmy, you look upset? Anything I can say to make things better?
Chemmy again hit the slopes in the Olympics, this time at the 2006 Torino Games.
Her 11th place finish in the Downhill was the best finish by a Brit in close to 40 years at the Olympics.
Since her last Olympics, Chemmy has remained busy not only on the slopes, but off them as well. Here she’s seen looking lovely at the Sport Industry Awards in London.
And here she’s seen… Well I’m not quite sure where this is. Either way, just figured this to be an appropriate time to toss this pic into the slideshow.
Here’s Chemmy giving us her best “Erin Andrews,” look.
And I know what your thinking, but yes, this picture was actually taken consensually by a professional photographer, not by some sleeze ball through a hotel peephole.
This picture was taken recently by a reporter who spotted Chemmy and an undisclosed friend at a hotel pool in Las Vegas.
Whoever the girl is, they appear to be the two best friends that anyone could have. Guess that’s why they call it “Sin City.”
Look out for Chemmy over the next two weeks in Vancouver.
I know, I know, it’ll be weird actually seeing her on the slopes. Just believe us, she’s really a skier.
