I come across many a hot athlete in my line of work. Some are hot while they're playing. Some are only hot in front of the camera, and some just seem to be hot all the time.
One woman I keep running across is Kristi Leskinen. I think she just looks great all the time, and she looks especially fine in her sizzling hot FHM shoot.
But is she the hottest athlete ever? Let's check out her pictures and see for ourselves.
This shoot pretty much put Leskinen on the map. People in the winter sports community had known about her for a while, but when she showed up looking all kind of fine in lingerie, she became a favorite of sports fans and nonsports fans.
Make no mistake, Leskinen is no ski bunny. She was the first woman to ever successfully pull off a Rodeo 720. I don't know what that is, but I'm kind of hoping it's some sort of sexual position.
I'm not making that part up. In the FHM interview, Leskinen talked about how skiing has made her fit, especially her stomach, but then went on to talk about how she also has good boobs and guys seem to like that.
Aside from those great boobs that she was talking about, Leskinen says the body part that gets the most attention are her big lips.
"When I was younger, people would make fun of them; now people have collagen implants to make their lips look like mine. Guys tell me my lips are good for kissing, but I’m sure that’s not all they’re thinking."
She tells it like it is.
...stays in the gondola. At least that's the response Leskinen had when FHM asked her how you could possibly get it on in a gondola without falling off.
I wish she were more forthcoming. How come we have to listen to John Mayer talk about his exploits, but Leskinen gets to plead the 5th?
Finally we see Leskinen out in the snow—or at least in something that is supposed to resemble snow. Nice to see that with clothes on she's still bangin'.
Leskinen is not your average hottie. She's also a bit of a thrill junkie. She skydives, bungee jumps, wakeboards, surfs, and rides dirt bikes and snowmobiles.
I dare you to keep up with her.
In 2009, Leskinen was a part of the ABC show The Superstars, when she was paired with a dude who I don't care enough about to look up who it was. But she certainly looked fine as hell and more than held her own against the women who actually model for a living.
She appeared on The Superstars and is also a huge fan of General Hospital. Maybe Leskinen has some sort of a future in television after she gets done competing.
I was shocked, angry, and devastated (shangristated) when Leskinen didn't qualify for the Olympics. They couldn't just let her in?
Trust me, I checked out the women from the U.S. squad. No lookers there. Would it have killed them to give Leskinen a spot?
We know that Leskinen can look good in underwear and athletic wear (nobody really cares about skiing gear), but can she look good in a dress?
I would say that it's an emphatic "yes."
I'm not a huge fan of this orange ensemble, but Leskinen, as per usual, looks radiant. Gotta love that smile. The only time you see it more is when she's on the slopes.
Just hanging out in jeans, Leskinen still looks like the kind of girl you'd be terrified to ask out on a date. Or, you know, go hang out in a gondola...
One thing that people nitpick about Leskinen is her teeth. They can be just a tad horse-like at times. I say big deal. She's got those luscious lips to cover them up; that's way more important.
Leskinen looks like she's ready to go out and hit the club. For somebody that spends so much time in cold weather, she really doesn't seem that interested in covering up.
Not that I'm complaining. Not at all.
So is Leskinen the hottest athlete ever? It's possible, but she's got some stiff competition. What do you think?
