Now this is what we call strong and sexy!
Gold medalist Julia Mancuso showed off her toned body in a sexy spread for GQ, and we have to say, she's inspiring us to hit the slopes immediately.
The 29-year-old brunette beauty wears a skintight one-piece jumpsuit featuring spaghetti straps and an open back, and kneels on the ground with one hand grazing her long locks, while the other provocatively tugs at the bottom of her outfit—allowing for a bit of butt cleavage to peek out.
The winning athlete clearly has plenty of confidence and an enviable figure to boot, but we have to admit, this isn't a pose we see all of the time.
Her good looks go without saying, but it certainly seems like Mancuso wants to be known for her hot bod in addition to her killer skiing skills.
When asked to comment on her major win in Turin eight years ago, Mancuso brushes it off with a coy response.
"It's not a shock to me when I have a good race," she says in the interview. "I started to tell people I'd just worn my lucky underwear."
Lucky indeed—she actually designed a cheeky underwear line called Kiss My Tiara in 2010.
Now here's a girl who knows how to play up her assets!
