We know what you’re thinking: how could anyone conclusively pick the top 25 hottest Olympians of all time? There have been literally thousands of athletes spanning well over a century! We completely agree, but with all the love we’ve been giving the men and women of the 2012 Games via our Top 50 Hottest Olympians Blazing London This Summer, we wanted to give a shout out to those who came before them in the Olympics‘ long, proud history of talented babes. From Muhammad Ali to Pete Sampras, Sonja Henie to Kristi Yamaguchi, it turns out being incredibly fit and profoundly talented never goes out of style. Their clothes and haircuts, however…look, few people could pull off what Flo Jo pulled off, okay? It was the late ’80s to early ’90s. Things were different back them. So enjoy ogling our 25 Hottest Olympians of All Time, and holler at us if we forgot your favorite Olympic babe. Oh, and in case you’ve never seen a young Bruce Jenner before…you’re very welcome.
