The London 2012 Olympics are almost here, and all eyes are on the sexy Paraguayan javelin thrower, Leryn Franco.
She might have finished in 51st place in the javelin throw at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, but that doesn't matter. Few people were talking about her athletic skills as much as they were talking about her jaw-dropping good looks.
Now, Leryn is set to make her comeback at the 2012 London Olympic Games where can use her good looks and amazing physique to score some marketing gold.
The 30-year-old Paraguayan beauty was Yahoo's second most-searched Olympian in 2008, after Michael Phelps, according to BuzzFeed Sports.
And those searches for Franco likely generates lots of saucy pics, including swimsuit photo shoots and beauty pageant results.
Franco competed in the 2006 Miss Paraguay pageant as well as in the Miss Bikini Universe pageant. She is a successful model and TV personality in her native country and that popularity is permeating into the U.S.
She was chosen to pose for the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and she ranked No. 64 on AskMen.com's "Top 99 Women" of 2012 list, jumping 22 spots in just three years.
She knows that her career has developed into more than just javelin and she embraces it.
"My career is media," Leryn told the Spanish-language news agency Efe. "One can turn on the TV or look at a magazine and see me."
