As a guy, I can’t help but notice beautiful women everywhere – on television, in movies, and of course, in sports. Though some may be intimidating with their gameface on, there are some seriously sexy women in the world of sports right now. Contrary to a lot of men’s sports, where those in the spotlight are generally the most skilled athletes at the top of their game, some of these women rank in the middle of the pack, yet they represent some of the biggest brands in the world. Why? Sex sells. We do not mean to discredit the athletic ability of any of these women because they have a pretty face that advertisers love. Most of the women on this list excel in multiple sports and many successfully run their own businesses as well. Impressive. All things aside, we have compiled this list based solely on looks. There are a lot of smokin’ female athletes right now and picking just twenty-five women to represent such a large group, and furthermore ranking them, was not an easy task.
A significant number of these women can boast world championships, charitable work, and academic accomplishments to go along with their long legs and flowing hair. Though some readers may fail to understand that these aesthetically pleasing specimen are professional athletes and would have no problem out running us, out scoring us, and kicking our arm-chair analyst asses, it has been made easy to observe which is the farer sex. Here is this years list of the 25 Sexiest Female Athletes.
Blair is a professional golfer & model. She also has by far the best abs we have ever seen on a golfer.
One of the most diverse women on this list, the tiny 5’3’’ fun-sized fitness freak is an Olympic lifter, CrossFit athlete, as well as one of a handful of female NASCAR pit-crew members. With a resume as varied and impressive as her, incredible looks, and an insane body, it would be very hard to leave her off of any sexiest athletes list.
One of the greatest players in women’s hockey history, Hilary Knight is also one of the sexiest to ever lace up a pair of skates. Setting scoring records at the University of Wisconsin and for the NCAA, Knight has since won two Olympic silver medals and was named the 2013 MVP of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. She currently plays proessionally with the Boston Blades of the CWHL. At only 25 years of age, we can expect her to remain on lists like these for the foreseeable future.
Danica Patrick is a race car driver, model, and advertising spokeswoman and so on. I think you all know who she is really unless you have been living under a rock.
Ellen Hoog became the first player in her sport to decide a major championship match by shootout, scoring the deciding goal for the Netherlands against New Zealand in the Women’s Field Hockey Olympic Semi-final. Not only did she send her team to the gold medal game and ultimately the top prize, but she also made herself internationally recognized for her petite frame and pretty blue eyes. She has since been a model featured in a number of fashion and sports magazines and continues to star in one of her nation’s most popular sports.
The first in one of the more represented sports on this list, women’s surfing, Anastasia Ashley has been one of the most best in her sport since winning the ASP Triple Crown Rookie of the year in 2005. In a remarkable feat, she was able to get a sponsor for surfing at the age of 7, showing just how committed she is to her sport. Doing most of her modeling shoots on a surfboard, Ashley also boasts being one of the most beautiful girls in a sport brimming with gorgeous girls.
Easily the tallest girl on this list at 6’5’’ Elena Delle Donne was one of the highest sought after recruits in women’s college basketball history and decided to attend annual championship contender; the University of Connecticut. Yet, just two days into UConn’s summer basketball program, Delle Donne realized how much she would miss her family and dropped out to return home. Ultimately deciding to play her college career at the University of Delaware, Delle Donne went on to be the second pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft and win the 2013 WNBA Rookie of the Year.
Following the tallest athlete on this list, coming in at number eighteen is the smallest athlete on this list. At just 5’2’’, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet packs a much bigger punch than her pint-sized frame. The 2014 Women’s CrossFit Games winner is one of the most athletic women on the list playing soccer, volleyball, flag-football, and rugby. On top of that, this tiny hottie can also deadlift 300lbs.
Recently put back on the market after being engaged to professional golfer Rory McIlroy, Caroline Wozniacki has bounced back to the form that saw her dominated women’s tennis from 2008-2011, and appeared to have been lost during the years she was with McIlroy. Wozniacki has climbed back up to a number-one ranking, as well as completing the 2014 New York City Marathon. It is safe to say she probably won’t be looking to jump back into dating anytime soon.
Though we are majorly disappointed by the fact that Alex Morgan recently got married, we still can’t help but acknowledge how stunning the now Mrs. Carrasco really is. In addition to possessing the fastest and longest legs in women’s soccer, Morgan has also published children’s books, won an Olympic gold medal , and signed endorsement deals with a number of major corporations including Nike and Coca-Cola.
Often mentioned in the same breath as fellow Women’s UFC fighter Ronda Rousey because of the amount of times she’s been defeated by her, Miesha Tate wins the fight for the sexiest female fighter on the planet right now. Tate’s 16-5 record is damaged mostly by her two submissions to Rousey and the two are on course to meet each other again as they are one fight away from Tate’s third chance to stop one of Rousey’s famous arm bars. At least Tate wins on our list.
Voula Papachristou cost herself the chance to compete at the Olympic level in the triple jump for Greece in the 2012 Olympics for an offensive tweet just days before the games. We won’t repeat the tweet, just know that it was bad enough that wasn’t permitted to compete. However, this is a list about how you look on the outside and Papachristou has mastered the art of being good-looking.
In a sport that competes during a season of jackets and snow-pants, Finland’s finest figure skater keeps us entertained by playing in a sport that requires being scantily clad and wildly acrobatic. Though never really faring well in international competition, Korpi is still one of the best in her home country and still maintains a spot as one of the sexiest athletes in the world.
Busty multi-professional Meghan Hardin takes the number twelve spot with some sexy brains that add to her beautiful body. Hardin who is a professional golfer, model, and very successful real-estate agent, played golf for division one Palomar College and got her “big break” by doing well on Golf Channel’s Big Break, which saw her receive endorsement deals and a modeling gig with Wilson Golf.
Gina is an MMA fighter, actress and model. We believe her face is too damn pretty for MMA but who are we to judge. She could be an easy pick for even number one.
Sierra is a professional rock climber from Scottsdale, Arizona. She travels the world competing as a US Bouldering Team Member.
Though born and raised in Wisconsin, Lauren Sesselmann decided to take her talents to Canada and become a member of their national soccer team. Since life isn’t always about how good looking one is and more about how well they perform, Sesselmann decided after a number of failed stints playing American soccer that she would try her hand north of the border, which turned out to be a great choice, as she started in all six matches of Canada’s bronze medal run during the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Maria is a Russian tennis player and model. She was also engaged to hockey player Alexander Ovechkin but called it off. His loss.
Maybe the only award higher than making our list of 25 Sexiest Female Athletes of 2015, is winning the Miss USA competition and Whitney Miller is the lone former Miss USA on our list. Representing her home state of Texas in 2012, Miller, a professional wakesurfer who’s trying to earn a blackbelt in jiu-jitsu, took home the Silver Crown allowing us to again ponder the question “is everything hotter in Texas?”
Our sixth overall pick for Sexiest Female Athletes of 2015 was the third girl taken in the 2013 WNBA draft by the Tulsa Shock. Skylar Diggins made a name for herself when she led Notre Dame to three consecutive Final Four appearances and captured the title of All-Time Leading Scorer in Notre Dame History. The voluptuous athlete won this year’s Most Improved Player of the Year award for the WNBA and will continue to be eye candy on the court for years to come.
One of the most decorated athletes on this list, Sally Fitzgibbons started dominating the surfing world at the young age of 14, when she won her first professional ASP event. Just two years later at the age of 16, she won the ISA World Championship and has been piling up ASP World Tour wins every year since. Last year, the talented Aussie published her first book,Live Like Sally, to add to her laundry list of professional credentials.
There aren’t a lot of things sexier in the world of sports than a bikini-clad blonde on a surfboard. Which is probably why professional surfer Alana Blanchard has been lured away from her board to focus on modeling this year. Winning numerous professional surfing championships and now being one of the most successful models to come out of women’s surfing, this hottie was a lock to be incredibly high on a list like this one.
Not to be confused with the less sexy celebrity chef, Rachel Wray started her professional sports career as a cheerleader for the Kansas City Chiefs. She has since given up her pom-poms for boxing gloves, boasting a 2-2 MMA record as well as 10 gold medals in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments over the past 18 months.
The number six ranked tennis player in the world comes in as the runner up on our list. Genie Bouchard, a Canadian born twin became the first of her country to make it to a tennis Grand Slam final, where she lost to Petra Kvitova at Wimbledon in 2014. Though she finished runner up again here, it is safe to say this 21-year old has a bright future of being on top of the tennis world, along with having tennis fans dream of her for years to come.
This princess of pole vaulting launched herself over the bar and into the number one spot on this years Sexiest Athletes list. Competing on a national level for her home country of Australia, this blonde beauty has been competing since she was 11-years old. She also was a finalist for the 2006 Miss Australia, and though she never medaled at the Olympics, she hands down takes home the gold when it comes to looks ( I imagine that accent is pretty sexy too!).
