Move over, Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps!

The gold medalist swimmers from Team USA were the center of attention during the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympic Games -- for their impressive skills and their good looks -- but this year, it looks like they'll have to share the spotlight with a number of athletes whose sizzle factor is just as powerful.
