• Erin Hamlin

    Erin Hamlin, Team USA’s top prospect in Women’s Luge, gets a 10 on the Babe-o-Meter, because her eyes shine with the glory of a thousand suns and her lustrous hair flows like silk in a calm breeze. She gets an 8 on the Luge-o-Meter because she won the women’s singles gold at the 2009 FIL World Luge Championships in Lake Placid.

  • Natalie Geisenberger

    Germany’s Natalie Geisenberger gets an 8 on the Babe-o-Meter because her smooth skin is as soft and cool as the Himalayan snows. She gets a 10 on the Luge-o-Meter because she is currently the second-ranked women’s luger in the world, behind teammate Tatjana Hufer.

  • Alex Gough

    Alex Gough’s devastating smile and bewitching inner glow net her an 8 on the Babe-o-Meter. She gets a 7 on the Luge-o-Meter because she placed sixth at the recent Calgary World Cup. She is the Canadian of note in this year’s luge competition.

  • Julia Clukey

    Team USA’s Julia Clukey is a 7 on the Babe-o-Meter because of the fierce, beautiful intensity that rages behind the deep pools of meaning in her eyes. She rates a 6 on the Luge-o-Meter because she’s an injury risk and only an outside chance to place in the singles competition this February.

  • Maija Tiruma

    Latvia’s Maija Tiruma rates 7 on the Babe-o-Meter due to her delicate, nay, angelic features, and the almost mystical energy that resonates from her very pores. Maija, who is Latvia’s top luging prospect, gets a 7 on the Luge-o-Meter because of her gold medal in the 2008 FIL European Luge Championships in Italy.

  • Martina Kocher

    Switzerland’s Martina Kocher is a solid 8 on the Babe-o-Meter because of the majestic way in which her graceful form cleaves the air when she moves. She’s only a 6 on the Luge-o-Meter because she’s never finished higher than 12th at the FIL Worlds.

  • Regan Lauscher

    When Canada’s Regan Lauscher smiles, the world crumbles. When she tosses back her flowing locks, the universe stops for a moment and gasps. Thus, a 9 on the Babe-o-Meter. Her two World Championship silvers and her Olympic experience (10th place in Turin) bring her up to a 7 on the Luge-o-Meter.
