Bleiler is no lightweight on the slopes. In her Olympics debut, she grabbed the silver medal at the women's halfpipe event in Torino. Bleiler burst onto the snowboard circuit at the Winter X Games in Aspen, where she landed her signature move -- the crippler 540, an inverted 540-degree spin -- and was crowned snowboard queen in front of a hometown crowd. Returning from an ACL injury that wiped out her entire 2004 season, she got the world's attention by winning gold and silver at last year's World Cup event in Italy.

But the 5-foot-6 blonde was in the February 2004 issue of FHM and on ESPN's X Games Web site. Although she has made snowboarding all the more sexy, her toughness also has earned her a place in our hearts.
