The Olympics might be coming to a close this weekend, but this is definitely NOT the last you will see of these athletes this summer.
Three of Team GB's most glamorous girls were snapped up as beauty ambassadors by the UK's biggest beauty brands before they had even put a perfectly polished foot in the Olympic stadium.
Prior to the Games the girls featured in a mass of glossy cover shoots, adverts and editorials promoting their favoured products, and looking pretty fabulous while doing it.

Women love these women because they are more than just a pretty face.
They are healthy, hard-working and

– highly bankable – inspiration for a generation of young women bored with skinny models
and unattainable 'ideals'.
Here, in exclusive interviews for FEMAIL, the GB girls talk to presenter Edith Bowman about beauty, bodies, breaking barriers… and who has the shiniest hair.
JESSICA ENNIS: 'My idea of beauty is somebody that doesn't have to try too much, someone who is effortless and fresh.'
