Olympic fashionable babe watch

OK, I guess everyone knows about Svetlana Khorkina by now - she posed for Russian Playboy back in 1997, and she is on the cover of the August Russian Elle issue, looking great. She won a silver medal in the Athens Olympics a couple of days ago, and she is competing again next week.

Fewer people know about Rythmic Gymnast Alina Kabayeva - she can be seen in Longines ads, born in 1983, she is finally old enough to do some saucy photography herself. The classic Russian barbiesque type, in pics from Russian Maxim and FHM. Unfortunately she wears tons of makeup as everyone else in her sport when she competes, so it's not easy to figure out what she really looks like when you see her on TV. She'll be competing too next week.

Tennis - Sharapova wasn't in Athens (but she looks great in an editorial in the Russian Elle issue) although Myskina reached the semis - she is in the same issue too, looking like a 40s vamp. The usual Slovaks were present in Athens also.
Dementieva (in Samsung ads) and a few more are also very visible - just in case you thought Kurnikova was the last popular Russian tennis player.

Svetlana Khorkina is stunning. I was so pissed off that she didn't win gold at the all-around, she was mostly flawless.. Anyway she is stunning, I didn't know she'd posed for Russian Playboy.
