Some of the hottest guys on & off the field!
Summer is about to get a whole lot hotter, thanks to the scorching athletes of the 2012 Olympics.

Hunky Ryan Lochte, 27, is swimming into the hearts of America with his good looks and sexy stroke — and giving teammate Michael Phelps a serious run for his money in the process.

And he isn’t the only Olympic eye candy going for the gold this summer: Hope Solo, who left the soccer field long enough to show her sexy side on Dancing with the Stars, will represent along with tasty track and field star Ashton Eaton and gymnast Jonathon Horton.

For Celebuzz’s tutorial on the Olympic stars — and a few of their fellow contenders — view the video above.

Celebuzz isn’t only highlighting the Olympians: on Monday, sports fans got an eyeful when a number of athletes — including sprinter Carmelita Jeter — who are featured nude in ESPN’s racy body issue.
