Who's hottest? Finch vs. Anna
Page 2 staff

OK, we admit it: We had no idea.

Sure, we'd seen Jennie Finch on the softball mound a few times ... and we certainly hadn't forgotten her performance as the runaway winner of our Best Dressed competition at the 2002 ESPY Awards.

But when we compiled the 16 female athletes to compete in the first round of Page 2's "Are You Hot?" competition, we didn't expect Finch to dominate the event by collecting 32 percent of the more than 420,000 votes.

So after seeing how much you all love Finch (and after receiving that pesky little letter of protest from Anna's people), Page 2 has decided to turn the finals into an event the people truly want to see: Jennie Finch vs. Anna Kournikova.

Check out the principals below and vote in the poll at right to determine who most deserves our title of Hottest Female Athlete 2003.
