To honor the games and the people participating in them, The Slanch Report will be bringing you TWICE DAILY the Hot Olympian of the Day.

Celebrate them all on the Hot Olympians page.

Being ranked higher in the world than her teammate Kiiri Korpi (and fellow Hot Olympian) gets Laura onto the Hot Olympians list sooner too. Well played. The 21-year-old, making her Olympics debut, has also spent significant time in my hometown of Boston training, which is reason enough for me to move back there.
