London, July 28 (ANI): Leryn Franco is not only one of Paraguay's big hopefuls at the Olympic Games, but also a stunning bikini model.
Franco will compete in the London Games as a javelin thrower, but in the past she has been a runner-up at Miss Universo Paraguay in 2006 and has also featured in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
The 30-year-old sportsperson, who is also a face of Nike, was ranked No. 64 on AskMen.com's Top 99 Women of 2012 and admitted that her "career is media" more than anything else.
She said that "one can turn on the TV or look at a magazine and see me."
She also said that she will not be let down if she leaves London empty-handed.
"To qualify for London, the Olympics, is already a medal," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
Franco is included in Maxim's 'Sexiest Women Of The Olympics' list.
She was also Yahoo's second most-searched Olympian during 2008, just behind champion swimmer Michael Phelps (ANI)
