Hottest Olympic Athlete 2012!

I'm sure there are many worthy candidates who would be classified as the hottest Olympic athlete for 2012.

However, everyone would have their pick, and mine would be Jessica Ennis. She represents Great Britain, and she recently won gold for the heptathlon event in front of her adoring home crowd in London.

Anyhow Jessica defintely has a charming smile, a great personality and most importantly, a super sexy athletic body!

Wouldn't you agree?

Olympics 2012 Badminton: Lin Dan Triumphs Again, Heartbreak for Malaysia

It was the battle for the badminton ages. The world's best two badminton players in the world China's Lin Dan and Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei faced each other again at the Olympic 2012 Badminton Singles Final, in a repeat of the 2008 Beijing Olympics final 4 years ago. Back then, Lin Dan bossed Chong Wei around and won easily, giving the shattered Malaysian a torrid time.

This time, a fired up Lee Chong Wei put up a much better performance, at time matching  the fearsome Lin Dan stroke for stroke, smash for smash. But it still was not enough to knock out the defending champion, as the Chinese shuttler won 15-21, 21-10, 21-19.

Maybe he should not retire just yet...
I must admit, the final set was really a nail biting affair, with the points going touch and go until the end. At one stage, it actually seemed that Chong Wei would finally end the gold medal draught for Malaysia when he led 18-16. But Lin Dan broke Malaysian hearts when he levelled, and went ahead and finally secured the winning gold medal point when Chong Wei hit long.

Lin Dan had proven that he is THE greatest badminton player of ALL time. There is no more doubt about it. He is simply the best ever.

As for Chong Wei, he can stand tall and proud. He gave it his all and had matched the best player in the world blow for blow. He can now choose to retire (as he indicated earlier) with his head held high.

Olympics Tennis 2012: Serena Williams, the Queen of London

The world's greatest sporting event is underway, and Serena Williams has just won gold for USA. easily trouncing another tennis royalty, the beautiful blonde Russian babe Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 in less than an hour.

Bloody hell, mate! She did it!
After being out of action for the better part of 2011, Serena Williams has made a remarkable comeback. Winning the Wimbledon crown (also in England) just barely a month ago, Serena suddenly became the hot favorite to win the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games. 

Well, Serena proved to everyone that she was able to cement her position as one of the greatest women tennis players and should now be known as the Queen of London, as she soundly thrashed Maria Sharapova, giving the Russian no chance at all. In fact, the Russian was lucky to even win one game as Serena hardly made any mistakes.

Now with two major titles in the bag this year, who is to say that the resurgent Serena Williams won't be able to also win at the French and US Opens? I certainly would not bet against her!

Title's in the bag, time to hit the beach!
