Leryn Franco Not Expecting A Medal At London 2012 Olympics

One of the most searched for Olympians on the internet is stunning Paraguayan javelin thrower Leryn Franco, and it's not hard to see why. When she’s not perfecting her javelin throw, she’s a full-time model.

Leryn started modeling in 2006 after coming in second at the Miss Universo Paraguay pageant and appeared in the 2011 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. In terms of sports, she broke several Paraguayan javelin youth records as a teenager and was the 2004 South American under-23 javelin throwing champion.

Leryn’s popularity started at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and she knows that she lives a different life from some of her other competitors:
 
 
“My situation is different from most of the other javelin throwers. I am not just an athlete. I have to be honest, my career is really in the media.”
 
“If people open a magazine, they can see me there. Modeling and fashion is my job, too. It is flattering to me that people find me good-looking and enjoy seeing me wearing good fashion items.”

Leryn finished 51st at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and she doesn't appear to be expecting a medal at the London games either:
 
 
“I am not expecting a medal. The competition is very strong and there are athletes who are stronger than me. But I treat it seriously and I want to do my personal best. For me the best reward is just to be here. Getting to the Olympics is like a medal for me.”
