How big was 2012 for female Olympic athletes? There’s a very good chance you’d never heard of judo’s Kayla Harrison before the London Games. Representatives of Bing sent us a list of the search engine’s top 10 most searched athletes of 2012, but BC requested to see the list broken down by sex and we wanted a deeper look at what names were on the top 20 female list. Harrison is #19. What we end up with is a very interesting list which is topped by an athlete who doesn’t even use Twitter.
