The 2012 Summer Olympic Game are almost here. I always forget about the Olympic games until about two weeks before they actually start, but this year I can't get them out of my mind. Whether it's Michael Phelps trying to win more gold, or Alex Morgan playing soccer, I can't wait for the 2012 Olympics.

The 2008 Beijing Games were the best I ever witnessed. When I was watching Michael Phelps take over the world, the Men's Basketball team, and the Women's Gymnastics team, I was cheering my country on. However, the one team that struck my heart the most was the Women's Gymnastics team.

Not only did I want them to beat the China because they were using 11-year old girls, but a lot of them were so adorable. And luckily for us, at least two of the girls will be returning to London, including the girl I crushed on like a schoolboy throughout the whole games.

The Olympics are a strange animal. You care so much about these athletes for about a month - and once it's done - you forget about a majority of the athletes you cheered for. I remember the Men's Relay in swimming, but I don't remember the anchor that won the race for the Americans. I just remember the rage celebration Michael Phelps and the rest of them had. But I do remember Nastia Liukin and Alicia Sacramone. Why do I remember them? Because I am a disgusting, stereotypical, pig. The girls were hot!

Let's face it, many men share the same thought process. We aren't a difficult species to figure out. As Chris Rock once said, all we want is food, sex, and silence. And when it comes to the Olympic Games, we just want some eye candy to go with our games. It's not all I'm looking for during the Olympics - obviously - but it doesn't hurt!

Here are 10 of the hottest athletes to look out for during the 2012 London Games. Needless to say, I will be tuning into Gymnastics and Track and Field events throughout the games.
