With beach volleyball set to kick off in London this Saturday, we thought we’d take the opportunity to introduce you to the five sexiest babes participating. We aren’t gonna rehash on Misty May-Treanor or Kerri Walsh. These girls are pretty under the radar here in the States, and some might come out as the darlings of London 2012.

Can they win a third consecutive gold? Sure, but they aren’t winning a bikini competition.
