HEATHER MITTS: 2004 HOTTEST FEMALE ATHLETE

HEATHER PASSES THE TORCH TO AMANDA

Congratulations to Amanda Beard -- Page 2's 2005 Hottest Female Athlete.

We could say it was a hard-fought competition and everyone gave Amanda a run for the money -- but they didn't.

From Amy Acuff to Amy Taylor to Lokelani McMichael in the championship, Amanda always cruised to an early lead and never looked back. Put it this way: If this were settled in the pool, Amanda and her gold medal would have hit the showers just as the others were finishing.

Besides Amanda, we did see some up-and-coming athletes that we haven't heard the last of, like Jennifer Barretta and Tanith Belbin.

  • Rovell: How do you market an athlete like Amanda Beard?
  • And now that Amanda has joined the ranks of the Hall of Page 2 Champions as the Hottest Female Athlete for 2005, she is now retired. Sorry, that's the rule. You win and you're done. Although you do get to carry the crown for the next year.

    Page 2 would like to thank all one million-plus that voted this year. See, it's like you were taught in eighth-grade history -- your vote does count.

    Once again, congratulations to all our athletes this year and remember that when it comes to the hottest athlete it's not whether you win or lose -- it's how good you look doing it.
