They say that you can't have it all, but these hot Australian athletes seem to defy those words. Michelle Jenneke and Stephanie Rice rose to fame with their athletic skills, but attention to their innate "hotness" is also catching up.

Two of Australia's best athletes Michelle Jenneke and Stephanie Rice are being talked about for their talents and dedication to their particular area of sports. But as far as the online community is concerned, they're not only pro athletes, they are also hot sports royalty.

First up is Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke. The 19-year-old athlete was born on June 23 in New South Wales. Last 2010, she won a silver medal for the 100m hurdle at the Summer Youth Olympics. Last year, she received a lot of media attention because of her warm up dance moves at the World Junior Championship in Athletics held in Barcelona. The YouTube video went viral and Jenneke was much talked about.

For this year, Michelle was chosen to appear on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. It's sure is a great privilege to be included in the magazine and be lined up together with hot models like Kate Upton and Katherine Webb.

Meanwhile another Aussie athlete is becoming a fast rising star not only in sports. Stephanie Rice, is an Australian swimmer who won a three gold medals at the 2008n Olympics in Beijing. The 24-year-old swimmer was awarded the "Medal of the Order of Australia" last 2009 for her excellence in sports.

Today, Rice lands a TV gig for Channel 9's "Today Show" where she will be a health and fitness reporter. This means more exposure for Stephanie not only in sports but as an overall celebrity.
