The Summer Olympics officially kick off today with the Opening Ceremonies in London. And that means the time for watching spandex-clad women sweat and jiggle is nigh! But thanks to our Gold Medal Babes series, you can now vote on the hottest babes of the Games.

Arguably the hottest female contingent is track and field (though, you’re bound to have hotties when dealing with such a huge sample size). Based on our thorough research in this department, the former Soviet bloc is killing it in this category: long gone are the days when they carted out ‘roided up women with crotch bulges and hairy upper lips.

Anyway, below we’ve whittled the list down to the 10 hottest female runners. This list doesn’t include hurdlers like Lolo Jones and Michelle Jenneke, don’t worry, we’ll get to them, jumpers and the like later on in the Games. So check out the candidates and vote for your three favorites.
