As the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics looms, The Local finds out why this year the competition is hotter than ever.

Italy will be sending 113 athletes to compete in 13 sports at the 2014 Winter Olympics, set to begin on February 7th.

The country traditionally scores well in the games, having finished in the top 10 of the medal table 13 times and, when you include its scores at the summer Olympics, it is the 5th most successful country in Olympic history.

But there's another reason you'll want to be cheering on Team Italy in Russia - some of the athletes are really quite attractive.

The Local has rounded up the best of the bunch, including skiiers, skaters and skeleton racers.
