London Hot Olympian of the Evening: Lithuania’s Airinė Palšytė

airine-palsyteTo 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.

Lithuanian high jumper Airinė Palšytė isn’t just a world-class athlete or an all world hottie, she’s also a first-class Tweeting sass artist. At the 2011 World University Games in China, Palšytė, 20, set a new personal best with a high-jump of 1.96M.

Unfortunately, competing in London as the youngest athlete in the high jump, she only managed 1.89M, putting her in 11th (of 12) place. Had she managed her best though it still only would have been good enough for 8th place. Thankfully, she still has many Olympics ahead of her and she is sure to improve.
