The Gold Medal for Sexiest Olympian Goes to
The three-time winter Olympian is hoping to leave the games with some new bling. "Being the underdog, an American in biathlon, really motivates me," the Paul Smiths, N.Y., native says on his Team USA bio. We have total faith he'll beat out the competition – at least in the looks department.
So how did a kid from sunny South Florida choose such an icy career path? "Cruising the streets of South Beach, I was approached by two women who told me I should start speedskating," the Miami native says in his bio. "From there, I transitioned to the ice." We're sure he looks just as good in the sand as he does in the snow, though.
Are we the only ones who think the New York Rangers captain looks a teeny-weeny bit like another famous Ryan with his helmet on? The closest thing the Olympics will get to Ryan Gosling, Callahan could collect a gold medal in Sochi to go with the silver he nabbed in Vancouver – that calls for a "hey, girl!"
Langton's the whole package: beauty and brains. He's currently studying for his Master of Business Administration at the Keller Graduate School of Management (although his return to the Olympics is a great excuse to skip class).
The Chicago native already has two gold and two silver medals to his name from the 2006 and 2010 Games. Will he add a few more to his collection? Well, we'll be sure to watch.
After competing at the 2010 Winter Games, Daly headed to the tattoo parlor to get some special ink: the symbol of the Olympics, five interlocking rings. It's on his back, though, so if you want to sneak a peek, you're going to have to see him shirtless.
If Fowler, who was born in Ontario, looks familiar, it's because you've seen the Canadian-American on the rink playing defense for the Anaheim Ducks – or, you know, in your dreams.

This will be the gold medalist's third time at the Winter Games, but when he's not hitting the slopes, you'll catch the Salt Lake City, Utah, native playing tennis, running his ski gear company, Shred, and making us swoon.

The New Canaan, Conn., native currently plays for the Montreal Canadiens – and what's sexier than a team player?
He's hoping to nab another gold medal after tasting glory in Vancouver in 2010, and this picture just about sums up why we're rooting for him.
Mazdzer's more than just a pretty face: the Olympian has a sense of humor, as evidenced by his love of Family Guy. We just wish there was room for two on this Pittsfield, Mass., native's luge.

One more time with feeling: The five-time medalist, who competed at the 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010 Games, says this will be his last trip to the Olympics. "I have a chance to finish my competitive career on a really high note," he says in his bio. "I'm going to do everything I can to make that happen." Ah, we'll miss that smile!
