''What are you doing son?''
''I'm watching Rio Olympics father,'' and the father took a sigh of relief that his son's interest from raunchy videos has shifted. But wait, what was the truth?
When Rio Olympics 2016 hit the cables this season, billions of eyes from all around the world will be set on their idiot box in hopes to see their favorites winning. Apart from that, something comes as an adage when you're into female sports and this is when the glamor and charm from the goddesses of the sports will take a toll on you. The enchantresses of tracks will leave nothing to stun your weirdest imaginations from blossoming as they set out to win the colored metals.
From swimming to gymnastics, the temperature this summer can take global warming to a whole new level with the divas of sports proving that there is something above looks that matters in the real world and that sheer dedication and offering a complete sacrifice are the only ways to take a notch over gifted talent.
The mass audience (you agree or not), however, will also have a keen interest in the hotness that they will get to see and so on the popular demand, we present to you with twenty-two most sought after female athletes to look for that are preparing for the Summer Games 2016.
So now you know the truth!

The "Pocahontas" of Portuguese Triple Jump team and Gold Medalist in 2016 European Athletics Championship, Patricia Mamona is the favorite this year. The dark temptation has given her counterparts a run for their money when it comes to endorsements and is already making millions of hearts beat faster. We hope she wins it all!
FIFA's Women's World Cup Champion and the Olympic Gold Medalist Alex Morgan literally owes no introduction to us.

(A Braveheart ofcourse)
Hockey's poster girl who already gave itch in our pants with her Sports Illustrated photoshoot is all set to give her Dutch side yet another victorious season with Rio Olympics 2016.

Captain of the American Gymnast team in Summer Olympics 2012 and winning Gold medal, this 'grandma' is a teamplayer.

This American bombshell, 30, is a four-time Gold medallist and a calendar face for the ever magnetizing dark skin color. When asked to reveal her diet secrets in an interview given to ABC News, she said "Typically I have a simple breakfast with oatmeal and fruit. I keep it light because I'm going right into training. Lunch is usually a salad with some protein. Snacks can be cashews/almond/yogurt -- things that are easy to fill in my bag. Dinner I usually eat a home, but sometimes I'll go out to eat as well. Dinner is a bigger meal -- I eat a lot of fish and red meat."
Revealing a thing or two about her daily routine, she added "I go to therapy first at 9 a.m., and will be there for about 2 hours. I do rehab exercises -- so getting treatment and doing a little bit of core work. Then from there, I go to the track. I get there at 10:30 a.m. and will do an hour of warmups/stretching/drills."

Her elder brother, Dan, is a 5000meters runner and her dad often jokes about her being a chaser when it comes to the sibling rivalry.

Check Runner's world for more info on this.
The Hungarian Swimmer who will enter the Olympic waters for the forth consecutive time will have a humongous responsibility on her tough and sexy shoulders this season.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson or Jessica Ennis-Hill? The question remains the hottest when it comes to rivalry between generations. While 30-year-old Jessica has experience, her young counterpart has the enthu that she proved by breaking the former's junior record in the heptathlon.

She won a silver medal in Youth Summer Olympics 2010 and since then, I am following this chick that is now unofficially "the face of Rio Olympic Games."

Imagine what'll happen once she bags a medal... no, I will not enter... into your weird imagination.
