Karlie Kloss is only 19-years-old but she's already been named "Best Model" by People Magazine and she's ranked third on the Top 50 Models Women list by models.com. She's also been praised by ladies she looks up, like Molly Sims and Tyra Banks.
Recently, Karlie took a little break from runways and fashion shows for a Vogue photo shoot with some of America's most accomplished athletes. Check out some of the pics right here!
26-year-old gymnast Jonathan Horton is only five-foot-two and looks quite miniature next to six-foot-one Karlie. "I come from a long line of short people," he says. "It’s almost like I was designed for the sport."
Ashton Eaton, 24, is the current track-and-field world champion and hopes to compete in the decathalon at the London Games, which will be his first Olympics. His fiancée, Brianne Theisen, is the female Ashton Eaton of Canada, and also likely London-bound. "I actually asked her for help in the high jump yesterday," he says. "And she’s a better high jumper than I am."
Swimmer Ryan Lochte, 27, is favored to win five gold medals at the London Games which is one reason why Gilette, Gatorade, Speedo, and Ralph Lauren are lobbying to sponsor him. He's now having to be a little more careful while enjoying his hobbies. "I’m always bruising and scraping things playing basketball and skateboarding," he says. "I’m pretty much a coach’s nightmare."
34-year-old twin brothers Mike and Bob Bryan hold the world record for seven years as doubles champions in tennis, yet their Olympic medal still receives the most attention. "The trophy that everyone wants to see when they come over to our house is the bronze from Beijing," says Bob.
30-year-old Dwyane Wade is set to make his third appearance at an Olympic Games and he's actually surprised that he made it, saying, "I thought Beijing would be my last one, but here I am!"
