Hot Canadian Athletes: The Screen Stealers At The Olympics

Canadian Olympic Team

Of all types of people in the world, athletes are certainly considered to be the height of physical perfection, toned and lean and, yes, blessed with a certain genetic superiority when it comes to looks. So it should be no surprise that the men and women in London to represent their countries at the Olympic Games are particularly attractive.

By now, we've all likely seen ESPN's magnificent take on the bodies of Olympians (and it's worth a second look, too), but we Canadians wanted to delve in a little more and see exactly what our country has to offer.

The results, as you'll see, are beyond impressive. Don't get us wrong -- every member of the 277-strong Canadian Olympic team has the kind of appeal most of us rarely see, let alone possess. So let these 21 (or so) athletes serve as a stellar representation of just how gorgeous our country truly is when it's in top physical shape.
