Thank goodness that February is a short month so that I didn't have to wait as long for March 1, or as I have proclaimed it, Leryn Franco Day!
If you haven't heard of this woman, I feel sorry for you. She is a javelin thrower who also happens to be one of the sexiest women in the world. March 1 just happens to be her birthday.
So in honor of her birth, we'll celebrate in the best way I know how: through pictures. Enjoy.
This shot came from Leryn's calendar that she put out in 2007, or as I call it, the year of Franco*.
*James Franco also starred in Spiderman 3 in 2007. Coincidence? I think not.
It's true that many hot women athletes don't look nearly as good while they are participating in their sport. They need their hair and makeup done and some fancy lighting to get us going.
Leryn? Nope. This is just her at the Olympics. No biggie. Just looking super hot while waiting to compete in the freaking Olympics!
I'm totally paying attention to that hat. Not that seductive look or the glimpse of Those Legs coming out of that bathing suit.
Some models get all uppity about where they're photographed. They only want to lay on bearskin rugs and whatnot.
Not Leryn; she's fine just hanging out on the hardwood. Hehe. Hardwood. Get it?
Leryn is Paraguayan, so I'm not sure what's up with the cowboy hat, but I have to say I'm not hating it.
I have long been a fan of the cowboy hat to enhance hotness. Somehow it just does.
I don't know how this happened. Somehow a cat must have gotten into Leryn's wardrobe and shredded her outfit to bits. It's terribly...amazing. That's actually great work.
Now I'm a little bit upset the whole thing didn't get shredded to bits.
Here's Leryn just toweling off after a normal topless swim in the pool. Just toweling off. Did you hear me? Towel off.
She's not getting the hint.
Nothing like a t-shirt for a nice snack. She could probably just keep eating. Not that I'm getting greedy—the underboob is nice—but I'm just saying I wouldn't complain if the rest of that shirt was gone.
I want to go ahead and guess that we will never see a javelin thrower this hot ever again. It's just a complete fluke. But what an amazing fluke it is.
She's not going to win a gold medal anytime soon, so I would just like to propose that she wear those heels while competing anyway.
Here's Leryn just hanging out with a boa. I think now would be a good time to mention the bellybutton ring. Best one I've ever seen, hands down. Just the perfect accessory to that body.
There seem to be plenty of shots of Leryn curled up on the couch. Maybe she would be more comfortable on this bed over here. (pats bed) Come on, Leryn. Nice and soft on this bed over here.
Nope, I guess she'd rather just chill out on that couch. Maybe it's just time for a nap. Damn, she looks so good just lying there. What a body. I just can't get over it.
Here is the picture for October from her 2007 calendar. Each new month was a dilemma. Do I go on to a new picture or keep enjoying whatever sexy one we had for the month before?
Never had the simple act of keeping track of the date been so hard.
Although Leryn is a javelin thrower, she's honestly not a very good one. So I guess it's a good thing that she has another career as a model.
She's not just your average model—she likes to strut her stuff wearing either almost nothing or something super scandalous.
All I'm going to say about this picture is that the star on the dress was added afterward.
There's also another picture that I wanted to show but couldn't that involved a very thin white sweater and nothing else. Look it up. It's fantastic.
Okay, admit it, Ms. Franco looks like she kind of belongs on everyone's favorite MTV show here. I might actually watch it if that was the case.
Remember how people were saying the whole Erin Andrews video was staged because she was getting ready in the nude? Yeah, women actually do that, and I think it's wonderful.
So you tell me—after seeing the evidence, does Leryn get the title of Hottest Athlete Ever? Anna Kournikova was hot, but Franco has a exoticism about her. It's pretty damn close in my opinion.
