Most basketball fans outside of Croatia probably didn’t know the name Antonija Misura before the beginning of this year’s Olympics. That’s hardly the case any more.
Misura is starting to turn heads at the London games, mostly because of her striking beauty. The Croatian star is suddenly becoming a main talking point at the Olympics, and her stardom continues to increase as she becomes an Internet senesation.
Misura, who is listed at 5-foot-11, has represented the Croatian national team in several Eurobasket women’s competitions in addition to the Olympics, even earning a bronze medal at the 2009 Mediterranean Games. But it’s really the intangibles that have Misura jumping into the news, with Twitter serving as a common place of praise.
The balling beauty is widely considered one of the — if not the — most attractive female Olympian at this year’s games, showing that the likes of Leryn Franco, Lolo Jones and Michelle Jenneke have company in the hearts of men worldwide.
