It doesn’t take a genius to understand why the entire world drops everything to tune into the Olympic Games every two years. Aside from being Earth’s oldest international sporting event, the Summer and Winter Olympic Games are routinely celebrated as a gathering of the world’s finest athletes, a display of their hardened bodies, and an introduction to the athletic crushes we’ll be gushing over for the next four years.

Summer Olympians are more prone to flashing skin, what with their barely-there swim trunks and all (obligatory Tom Daley link), but that doesn’t mean their Winter Olympic counterparts aren’t just as steamy when they strip out of that restrictive winter gear.

A naked athlete is a great athlete, so without further ado, we bring you the 12 hottest winter Olympians competing in the 2014 Sochi Games, sans their shirts. Go sports!
