To honor the London Games and the athletes participating in them, The Slanch Report will be bringing you THRICE DAILY a Hot Olympian of the Day. Each day we will bring you three (likely unknown-to-you) Olympians who, while maybe not quite worthy of a place on the medal stand, certainly are worth being placed on a pedestal for us to enjoy. Celebrate them all on the Hot Olympians page.
New Zealand's field hockey team put up a valiant fight but found themselves finishing a disappointing 4th and just off the medal stand after consecutive losses to the Netherlands and Great Britain. However, one bright spot on the team was the play of Anita Punt, 24. The only thing faster than Punt on the field is how quickly she has catapulted into my thoughts and heart.
An animal lover, Punt was named to the World All Stars team in 2011 and has a thriving career ahead of her. I for one can't wait to see much, MUCH more of her.
