London Hot Olympian of the Afternoon: Italy’s Marta Menegatti

marta-menegattiTo honor the London Games and the athletes participating in them, The Slanch Report will be bringing you THRICE DAILY a Hot Olympian of the Day. Each day we will bring you three (likely unknown-to-you) Olympians who, while maybe not quite worthy of a place on the medal stand, certainly are worth being placed on a pedestal for us to enjoy. Celebrate them all on the Hot Olympians page.

Italy’s Marta Menegetti is only 21 (turning 22 in a mere eight days!) and a first-time Olympian in beach volleyball. Playing with Greta Cicolari, the Italian team beat fellow Hot Olympian Liliana Fernandez Steiner to get into the quarter-finals but unfortunately Menegetti/Cicolari fell victim to the powerhouse team of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.

She’s not just beautiful. She’s not just adorable. She’s practically perfect.
