Olympics take on Valentine's Day twist - 13 WTHR Indianapolis

Olympics take on Valentine's Day twist

INDIANAPOLIS -

NBCOlympics.com has been sending us some fun offerings this week.

Indiana slopestyle skier Nick Goepper is number two on this list of heartthrob Olympians. The slide show was put together by WTHR's partner NBCOlympics.com, but we have to wonder why Nick - a bronze medalist, no less - was not chosen as number one? (Speed skater J.R. Celski beat him out for that slot.)

"This small-town Indiana boy combines wholesome Midwestern appeal with daredevil attitude, and his high-flying tricks on the slopestyle course are almost as impressive as his dimples," they write.

There's also a similar slide show featuring female athletes. Speed skater Brittany Bowe tops the list.

The slide shows tout the athletic achievements of each Olympian, but they're probably too busy for any dating right now!
