The summer of 2012 was a memorable one as London played host to the Olympic Games. Many of its athletes captured our attention in their quest for Gold, but only a handful could end up as Yahoo‘s most searched olympians of the year.
Coming in fourth (just shy of a medal) was the outspoken but extremely talented goalie for the US Women’s Soccer Team Hope Solo. In third place, it’s Serena Williams, who won gold against Maria Sharapova in tennis. Second place goes to Lolo Jones who’s searches were bolstered by her infamous break down on “The Today Show.” And in first is actually Serena’s foe from the finals Maria, though I’m pretty sure Serena would prefer that gold over the victory here.
