Gabby Douglas

Gabby Douglas was a breakout star for the U.S. women's gymnastics team at the 2012 Olympics, and she's ready to win some more gold medals in Rio. She's stunning and athletic, and her captivating journey to success has already been turned into a Lifetime Original Movie. Way to go, Gabby!

Jordan Burroughs

Jordan Burroughs has been called the posterboy of the U.S. wrestling team. And with a body like that, it's easy to see why. He has a 142-2 record after the Olympic trials, and won the 2013 National Championship just one month after breaking his ankle. All of this makes him a great catch, but hands off: Jordan is happily married with a son.

Ryan Lochte

At a lean 6'2, Lochte has raced his way through three Olympics on the U.S. swimming team, earning 11 medals. He's nice to look at on his own, but the view gets even better with Michael Phelps by his side. 2016 marks our last chance to see what might be the sexiest swimming rivalry ever.

Michael Phelps

If this four-time Olympian looks familiar, it's probably because he's the most decorated Olympian of all time. Scoring 22 medals for the U.S. swimming team, Phelps hopes to break a few more records in 2016 for his final Olympics. Success looks good, doesn't it?

Elena Delle Donne

This is going to be her first Olympics, but everyone is already in love with women's basketball player Elena Delle Donne. She was recently nominated for an ESPY, and she's been a global ambassador for the Special Olympics since 2014 in support of her sister, who has cerebral palsy and autism.

Nathan Adrian

Big muscles and big brains? Yes, please! This two-time U.S. swimming team Olympian already has four medals to his name, but that's not his primary focus. He also aspires to be a doctor. He graduated pre-med from UC Berkeley in 2012.

Missy Franklin

Though Franklin's dad makes fun of her giant feet (he calls them "built-in flippers"), they've served her well. As the leader of the U.S. swimming team, Franklin won four gold medals in the 2012 Olympics. With a fantastic attitude and a constant smile on her face, she makes it look easy.

John Mann

No matter how much (or how little) you know about water polo, John Mann's rugged charm will capture your attention. The U.S. water polo team leader is here to win, and show the world what his sport is all about. It's easy to learn with such an attractive teacher!

Tony Azevedo

There must be something in the pool, because this co-leader of the U.S. water polo team is just as tanned, toned, and blonde as teammate John Mann. Admirers better keep their distance. Though you won't see his wife at Olympic festivities -- she's steering clear of Rio during her pregnancy -- Azevedo is most definitely married.

Carlin Isles

This fullback is known internationally as the "fastest man in rugby." This will be his first Olympics, but he's expected to help the U.S. rugby team win big. Plus, he's oh-so-nice to look at.

12 of 27 Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images

Allyson Felix

Felix's legs aren't just covetable, they're powerhouses! In three Olympics, the Los Angeles native has already won five medals for the U.S. track and field team. With her gorgeous and incredibly powerful stems, more medals are definitely in her future.

13 of 27 Harry How/Getty Images

Justin Gatlin

This four-time Olympic medalist hails from Brooklyn, N.Y. and is ready to score a few more medals for the U.S. track and field team. If you're praying he'll slow down so you can stare at his beauty, too bad. He's super fast and currently holds the American record for the 4x100 meter race.

Aries Merritt

Who wants to play nurse to this gorgeous hunk? Although Merritt is still recovering from a major kidney surgery, after winning the gold medal in 2012 for the U.S. track and field team, he's more determined than ever to win.

Funmi Jimoh

It's been awhile since Jimoh participated in the Olympic games. She qualified back in 2008 for the United States' track and field team, but hasn't returned since. Though she's a bit of an underdog in 2016, this long jumper is a beauty and a treat to watch.

Madison Hughes

This captain of the U.S. rugby team is actually a UK native. Hot and an accent? Oh yes.

17 of 27 Ethan Miller/Getty Images

Carmelo Anthony

The New York Knicks baller is spending several weeks of this off-season playing for the U.S. men's basketball team, which is stacked with hotties. There will be action, but it's doubtful he'll break a sweat: America's team is the overwhelming favorite.

18 of 27 Valerie Macon/Getty Images

Aly Raisman

This three-time Olympic medalist for the U.S. women's gymnastics team is the self-proclaimed "grandma" of the group at just 22 years old. She also finished fourth on the 16th season of Dancing With The Stars, and is a star in her own right.

19 of 27 Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images

Adeline Gray

What's more badass than a female wrestler? An Olympic one! Gray is a three-time world champion, only one win away from breaking a world record. Gray is also ranked No. 1o on the U.S. wrestling team as the Olympic trials champion.

Daryl Homer

Fencing might not be the most popular sport to watch, but Homer's charming smile and fierce competitiveness aims to change that. Homer first began fencing at the age of 11 after reading about it in the dictionary, which is pretty adorable.

Kerri Walsh Jennings

Walsh Jennings is an OG of the U.S. women's volleyball team. She's probably the biggest name in volleyball. In the past four Olympics, she won 21 consecutive matches (and only lost one set to Australia in 2012). Plus, her positive attitude makes her an inspiration and an excellent role model.

Michael Hixon

As an Olympic newcomer, Hixon is only 21 years old, but he's ready to represent for the U.S. diving team. He may be young, but he's been on the National Team since 2011. That's hot.

Serena Williams

Absolutely no one can deny what an incredible athlete women's tennis champ Serena Williams is. Another undeniable fact? Her breathtaking beauty.

24 of 27 Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images

Tamika Catchings

As a member of the U.S. women's basketball team, this three-time champion has won gold in the past three Olympics. She also plays with a hearing impairment and is the founder of the Catch The Stars foundation, which promotes fitness and health in youth. Her charitable contributions only make her more attractive.

25 of 27 Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images

Andy Bisek

It's tough to find an Olympian who rocks a mustache harder than this guy. Hailing from the great state of Minnesota, Bisek's interests include hunting and fishing. The U.S. wrestling team is lucky to have him: He's been a solid world champion medalist since 2010.

Chris Brooks

Brooks is finally ready to be an Olympics star after being an alternate for the 2012 U.S. men's gymnastics team. And with a body that jacked, he's a fan favorite.

John Orozco

This will be Orozco's second Olympics with the U.S. men's gymnastics team, and we can't wait to watch him in Rio. Not only is he a strong competitor, but he's also a talented singer and dancer who wants to pursue a career in film after the Olympics. With a face like that, we're sure he'll have no problem finding success!
