Olympians Who Get a Gold for Wacky Style
The only thing more eye-catching than the swimmer's amazing abs is his dazzling blinged-out grill, which he wore to win the gold in the 2009 World Championships. Fun fact: Ryan sported self-promoting footwear at the same event in 2011.
The soccer pro gets her kicks from playful on-field duds, including carefully coordinated socks and jerseys, plus pink sneakers that complement her fuchsia headband.
The reigning Wimbledon doubles champ is also the queen of over-the-top court costumes, including a belly-baring crisscross mini. And we love that she often rocks complementary nail polish shades.

Venus's doubles partner (and Wimbledon singles champ) shares her sister's love for out-there tennis attire (as well as eye-catching off-court style). Whether in Burberry on the red carpet or teeny-tiny shorts during play, she's not shy about showing off that super-toned bod.
