We’re dusting off an old tradition from 2004 and 2008 to feature one Olympic babe per day of the 2012 games. Lest you think we are a bit premature, the 2012 London Olympics actually started today. Opening ceremonies are on Friday, but some women’s soccer competitions actually began today in what Games organizers are calling “Day -2.” The United States women’s soccer team won their openning match.
Today’s Olympic Babe Of The Day, Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou, is a last-minute scratch from the games, due to Twitter self-injury. The other day she tweeted the following joke:

Note: Ladies do not think we’re leaving you out. Wizbang Pop! is doing the Olympic Hunk Of The Day.
