The 2016 Rio Olympics are drawing ever nearer and, as has been the case for the past few Olympic Games, we expect that there is going to be a standout star, who gets worldwide attention for her looks, rather than her talent. That was certainly the case for the beautiful Paraguayan star Leryn Franco, when she competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
We suspect that most of you will recognise Leryn Franco, due to the fact that her face has been everywhere over the past few years, thanks to being one of the hottest athletes to ever compete at the Olympics. What you might not know though, is that Leryn is actually a competitive javelin star and still has dreams of becoming an Olympic champion.
Leryn Franco still works hard in training and pushes herself to the limit, in order to compete to the best of her ability in her javelin tournaments. Unfortunately though, the chances of Leryn getting anywhere the medal places in Rio are extremely slim. It is a good job then, that Franco is so stunningly beautiful.
While Leryn Franco would class herself as an athlete first, we have to say that we see her more as a model. Since bursting onto the scene, Leryn has landed plenty of modelling work and will continue to do so for many more years to come. We wish Leryn all he best in her pursuit of Olympic glory but we mostly look forward to seeing what modelling gig she will land next.
