Athlete Eye Candy - The Sexiest Legs, Butts & Abs In Sports
Not suprisingly, professional athletes have some of the best bodies in the world. They train daily to make sure their legs, arms, and abs (and other parts) are in peak physical condition. They don't just work out to look good - they work out to win.

Russian beauty Anna Kournikova has spent the last few years playing exhibition matches after retiring from competition at age 21 due to back and spinal injuries. Despite her lack of professional status, she is still one of the hottest athletes in the world.

She is known just as much for tennis as she is for her relationship with singer Enrique...

What Would Ryan Lochte Do?
Ryan Lochte has his very own reality show coming out in April and a new teaser gives a glimpse into the life of the Olympic gold medalist.

First and foremost, Lochte's all-important catchphrase, "Jeah," is explained -- in detail -- by the swimmer in the new promo clip for "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?"

"If you say it like how it's spelled, it's 'jeah,' but that's boring -- no one wants to hear that," he says. "So you really have to put that enfidence on that 'J.'

"That 'j' and 'e', that's the key part. And then the 'ah' kinda just, flows," he adds.

Not every star can have the longevity of a Michael Caine. Some enjoy the lights for stardom for all but a few brief moments. Here are the stars who had their 15 Minutes of Fame in 2012:

Jeremy Lin - Lin was the talk of New York during the 2011-2012 NBA season, when he became the breakout star of the Knicks. He was on the cover of every sports section during the height of "Linsanity," and even got on the cover of TIME magazine. Now? He's playing for the Houston Rockets, where he averages 10 points and 6 assists per game. Not bad, but certainly not cover-of-Time-magazine good.
