This article is meant as a bit of satire with a dash of humor. If I "outed" the cover of any secret agent listed below, then stick to your day job! :-P
10) Larsen Jensen
Our latest navy SEAL: He probably knows 2,000 ways to blow something up and can probably put a bullet through a quarter a mile away. He may not be a secret agent yet but he's qualified now.
9) Janet Evans
Are you seriously buying her housewife cover! Think Angelina Jolie with Brad Pitt in that hit-man movie. She also does some work for FINA which is a very, scarlet, red, flag!
8) Dara Torres
The "6-million dollar woman" - you know those multiple surgeries and her "yoga minions" created a uber-spy of UFO-grade quality!
7) Gary Hall
Double agent: converted by the "good guys" to tell it like it is. Could he have been the first double agent to bring to light how badly paid our USA athletes are? Politically assassinated at the Athens Games missing out on a relay that he should have swam on.
6) Nick Brunelli
He is the diplomat kind of secret agent. Think "Machiavelli" with muscles. Disarms enemies with good vibes and encouragement and then once they are being so very charmed by his "charisma distortion field," they tell him everything that he needs to know just so that can hang out that a little while longer.
5) Alexander Popov
Well, he cruised through the gatekeepers in Lausanne, Switzerland and got a job deep inside the "Castle FINA!" How is that for some weaponized, espionage, credibility?
4) Chloe Sutton
God and country, baby! - Truth Justice and the American way too! Chloe would be the female version of Jack Ryan, the hero from the Tom Clancy novels as portrayed by Harrison Ford in the movies. In fact, if Captain America were a girl she would be it.
3) Michael Phelps
Ever seen a Get Smart episode? He's clumsy, always saves the day, utilizes weird gadgets and girls that are way out of his league are attracted to him.
2) Jason Lezak
Two words Mission Impossible: Just a regular guy living in So Cal swims the fastest 100-free ever and defeats several empires in the process. You know he can do a bunch of other stuff better than Tom Cruise!
1) Ian Thorpe
Common wealth breeding, kicks it with royalty, hangs out in New York, West L.A., Japan, yet trains in Switzerland. You know he is hearing secrets and what a great cover he has: Internationally recognized swimmer, ambassador for Omega, plus he is a snappy dresser too.
