Ashton Eaton, Olympic gold medalist in decathlon

DivineCaroline: What in your opinion is your best asset?
Ashton Eaton: My best quality is to be able to react when it is go time. When the pressure is on and something needs to get done I just do it. I never doubt myself.

DC: Detail for me a perfect romantic evening?
AE: An airplane ride to an excluded off-the beat airport. Then we will ride over to a castle tower where we can overlook the water while the sun is setting and eat dinner.

Hunter Kemp: Triathlon

DivineCaroline: What is your best asset?
Hunter Kemp: My shaved legs. No really, as a triathlon athlete I have to shave my legs. Plus they are muscular. My fellow athletes seem to like my calves.

DC: What was the first quality that attracted you to your wife?
HK: Her height. We are about the same height so I can always look into her eyes when I want to. I love that.

DC: What is your ideal romantic night out?
HK: Dinner and a movie. I would plan out a nice romantic Italian dinner in the park, then a stroll through the park and then cap it off with a movie. It is all about us time and then sitting back to relax.

DC: Your most romantic gesture was?
HK: I surprised her when I proposed after two and a half years of dating. We got engaged in right by The Boat House in Central Park. I remember being so nervous when I got down on one knee.

John Orozco, gymnastics

DivineCaroline: When it comes to dating what is your best asset for attracting the ladies?
John Orozco: I will try not to be too vain but I do have a great smile.

DC: What is the #1 turn on quality a woman has to have to catch your eye?
JO: It is a battle between being really femine and having a great personality. I like very feminine woman. I love when a woman takes pride in herself and cares about her appearance. Not too much make-up but put together nicely.

DC: What other features are important?
JO: I like a woman who is quirky and can make me laugh. Personality is key. I meet so many gorgeous girls but they have no interests.

DC: What would be a deal killer?
JO: When girls drag their feet. I hate that.

DC: Name the one female Olympian you would want to date?
JO: I don’t know. I have to think about this one…Shawn Johnson is cute but she is not competing.

Christian Taylor: Olympic Gold medalist in triple jumping

DivineCaroline: What in your opinion is your best asset? Christian Taylor: My back. I do a lot of pull ups to get that tight look. DivineCaroline: What for you is the biggest turn on? CT: Eyes. A woman with beautiful eyes really sticks out in my book. If we connect when we look into each other’s eyes than I will know she is the one. DC: Detail for me a perfect romantic evening? CT: I am from the south so for me it has to be a walk on the beach and then a picnic dinner by the bonfire. A home cooked meal with the sun setting to me is perfect. DC: Wait you cook too? CT: I am cooking the whole thing. DC: If you could share a cup of coffee with any Olympic athlete who would it be? CT: Misty May Treanor. I have a little crush on her. I am really turned on by successful women. Photo credit: NYDailyNews.com

Justin Gatlin, track and field (he anchored the record setting rely)

DivineCaroline: What is your best quality?
Justin Gatlin:.My smile. It is warm, welcoming and natural. Once we get talking, my eye lashes and big eyes seal the deal for me.

DC: What was the first quality a woman has to have to grab your attention?
JG: Confidence. She doesn’t have to be a supermodel because if she walks into a room exuding confidence, I am smitten.

DC: Name another Olympian you would love to ask out?
JG: Sydney Leroux of the US Women’s Soccer Team. She caught my eye.

DC: What is your idea of a perfect romantic night?
JG: Something spontaneous is my idea of romance. Doing something you have never done before and having a memory that will last forever to me is romantic.
