First and foremost we admire them for their sporting prowess and devotion to their discipline.
During London 2012 they've demonstrated world-class sporting excellence and kept crowds on the edges of their seats as nail-biting races and matches have unfolded.
But no-one could fail to notice that they have the most impressive bodies to boot too.
From incredibly defined abs to the most taut of thighs, the Games is the hottest event worldwide, and not just because of the medals being won.
Although for the rest of us this might be an unrealistic body goal, thankfully we can admire their fine figures in action for a few more days.
Naturally a well-honed body comes with Olympian territory: intense training schedules and healthy diets are a sure-fire way to a strong and healthy shape.
With round-the-clock coverage that is more interactive than ever, the Games have caught all of our attention. The competitors, with their admirable achievements and likeable personalities combined, have become positive role models who will undoubtedly inspire the nation to get more active.
