Alex Morgan would like to focus on soccer and the upcoming Olympics.
But this week Maxim magazine released its Hot 100 of 2012, and the 22-year-old girl-next-door Morgan came in at No. 66.
"Since the magazine isn't out on the stands yet, and it's only on the website for now, not too many people know about it!" Morgan said, hoping. "I'm just trying to keep it quiet now. I'm trying to focus on the Olympics!"
Alex, we'll get to that in a second.
The California-born Morgan became a national darling after helping the U.S. team finish second in last summer's FIFA Women's World Cup. And she moved into the hotness stratosphere by posing in Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue this spring.
"I know it all sort of blew up -- in a positive way -- because of the SI body-painting photos," Morgan said. "I'm glad I did it. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback and I'm happy with the results. You never know what you're going to get with body paint."
Others on the top 10 list with sports ties include LaLa Anthony (93), Paulina Gretzky (87), Caroline Wozniacki (86), Arianny Celeste (58), Stacy Keibler (51), Brooklyn Decker (42), Kate Upton (39), Kelly Kelly (38) and Elisha Cuthbert (34).
Now back to the Olympics.
For the first time, the U.S. Olympic Committee will use electronic medical records (EMR) instead of paper records for athlete care at the London Games through GE’s EMR technology. That will provide doctors with streamlined access to athletes’ medical records – ultimately reducing errors and saving time when diagnosing an athlete’s injury.
"Our No. 1 priority as athletes is to stay on the field, and getting our medical records quickly will help us do that," Morgan said. "It's important for us to stay stress-free and be ready to compete."
