The world's hottest sports babe does not swing a golf club, shoot a basketball or ride a snowboard. Roberta Mancino jumps from airplanes.
The Italian skydiver was voted the "Sexiest Woman in Sports," beating out 15 others, in a Men's Fitness online poll. She was subsequently referred to by People magazine in this manner: "Talk about a falling angel." Below is a video of her airborne prowess.
Mancino, who was fearful of dying when she first started in the daredevil sport, now can't get enough and has made more than 4,000 jumps, including four while wearing no clothes, for a magazine shoot.
"It was chilly, but once I jumped it was a nice feeling to have the wind against my body and to not have a jumpsuit or any clothes flapping against me," she said, in a Men's Fitness website Q & A session.
In the same interview she talked about coaching others, failed parachute openings, scary landings and how she trains for the sport. But chances are most viewers just went straight to the photo gallery.
