TEAM USA 2012: We're Taking Notice Of These YBF Olympians....

Now that the opening ceremonies are over, we picked out some of the YBF Olympians you'll be seeing over the next couple of weeks.  And who's causing us to take notice.  Check out our rundown inside...

As First Lady Michelle Obama and Grant Hill cheered on 2012's Team USA (and Gold medalist Muhummad Ali who made an appearance) as they entered London's Olympic Stadium last night (in Ralph Lauren designed uniforms), we had our eye on the YBF athletes who we'll be watching during the Games.  Whether it's for their admirable talent...or admirable bodies...we'll be glued to these folks.  Fencing anyone?

Jason Richardson is looking hella sexy. I'm interested to see how Team USA men basketball team does, I'm pretty certain we have the best athletes, well atleast the tallest. Michelle is giving Grant that, "If you keep buzzing in my ear, I will have the secret service throw your a$$ out of London" look.

Yes, Lolo is a Wisconsin girl born and raised and her dad is black but I thought her mom was Swedish. Norwegian Swedish close enough I guess, this explains why she and Rashida look so much alike they have the same type of parents.
