Amanda Beard is Bleacher Report's Sports Hottie of the Week.
And why shouldn't she be? It was a good day for her, as she announced that she is planning on publishing her memoir, "In the Water They Can't See You Cry," in April of 2012. The release is timed perfectly to coincide with the 2012 Summer Games in London.
Any time you can add "published author" to a resume that includes "Olympic swimmer" and "model," well, you've done all right.
So we here at Bleacher Report have decided to celebrate Amanda Beard in the only way we know how: with a slideshow of hot pictures that accompany her story.
