The 25 Hottest Olympians Of All Time (Based Solely On Our Personal Opinion)

Hottest Olympians Ever

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.

Jordin Sparks Gets Racy, Lacy For Ali’s Fight Night

Jordin Sparks was showing off her slimmed-down bod on the red carpet this weekend, dropping by Muhammad Ali‘s Fight Night concert in a low-cut, black, lace-accented dress with plenty of side-boob. The 21 year old’s working on her third album, so the odds are good we’ll see more flirty fashion like this in the future. Among the performers at the event were fellow Idol champ Kelly Clarkson, Bret Michaels, Reba McEntire and Kevin Costner, who must be trying to bring his country music career back stateside (2010′s Turn It On was only released in Europe). See photos of the show in the gallery below.

Beyonce And Madonna Added To “Hope for Haiti” Telethon

beyonce-madonna-hope-for-haiti-telethon

Now that Beyonce and Madonna have been announced as performers, is there anyone left to add to the Hope for Haiti Now lineup? Kanye West seems plausible, but allegedly his mouth is too big. Lady Gaga is another possibility, but she’d probably distract people from donating by wearing a diorama of an earthquake scene on her head.

In addition to performances by Madge and Bey, more than 100 of the “biggest names in film, television and music” will be on hand to either perform, speak or answer phones. We’ve already listed out most of the big names, but there are some notable additions that have just been announced: Haitian artist Emeline Michel, Clint Eastwood, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks and Will Smith with Muhammad Ali. The event will air Friday at 8PM EST on VH1, MTV and just about every other channel on your TV. Brace yourself for the biggest telethon in history, and don’t forget to have your wallet on hand.

Official press release after the jump.
