Top 10 Sexy Female Athletes

Athletes have to craft their bodies to play on a professional level, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the resulting eye candy from time to time. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 sexy female athletes.

For this list, we’re be looking at women who first came to prominence as athletes, but have managed to garner attention for their looks as well.

#10: Kiira Korpi
Figure Skating

The perfect example of the blonde-haired beauty that comes to mind when people think of Nordic countries, this Finnish athlete is an accomplished figure skater. She’s a three-time European medalist and five-time Finnish national champion but it’s the fact that she’s got a face that seems sweet beyond measure that has made the Internet home to many many photos of her. None of the attention seems to have made a lick of difference to the woman and that’s part of what makes her even more endearing.

#9: Silje Norendal

An accomplished snowboarder who won gold at the Winter X Games Europe in 2013, Silje Norendal has never taken part in any overtly sexual photo shoots, like many of the women on this list, but that has not hampered her eligibility for this list. With an innocent face and a nose straight out of Whoville – and we mean that in the cutest possible way - her aspirations seem to be entirely centered on the sport she spends her days and nights working on. And that’s just fine with us, as long as we get to admire her looks along the way!

#8: Anna Kournikova

Perhaps the first female tennis player to go a long way towards convincing the world that tennis may just be the sexiest sport, Anna Kournikova may never have won a WTA single’s title but she certainly won a lot of attention in her short career. At one time ranked by as the 18th biggest sports flop in history, by contrast, Anna was also ranked highly on a lot of other lists based on her looks; thanks to her long legs, blonde hair and many scantily clad photos, she’s often been considered on the hottest female athletes in the world.

#7: Allison Stokke
Pole Vault

When photos of this young woman at a pole-vaulting event as a teen hit the Internet, to say that jaws dropped and tongues wagged would be an understatement. Though she had set the record for freshman pole-vaulting, there is no way that her athletic feats were why she became such a massive sensation. In fact, at the time, that information was not included, and rather it was her physical attributes that caught on and have since stolen the public’s attention as she continues her track and field career.

#6: Laila Ali

Though she’s now retired, this female boxer was one of the greatest in the ring – just like her dad, Muhammad Ali. Undefeated in 24 fights, with 21 of those wins coming by knockout, Ali certainly has the brawn to make it as a boxer. But she also has the looks to make her standout; in fact, she’s complained about people saying she was too pretty to box. Though some criticized her for avoiding the best female fighters to keep her record intact, that doesn’t take away from her standing on this list: Ali is not only an athletic idol, she’s also a strong, confident beauty – and that’s the best kind of sexy.

#5: Alexandra Saitova

There may be an obvious joke to be made about a beautiful woman that is incredibly skilled with a broom, but we’re far too classy to go anywhere near it. What we will talk about are the obvious qualities that have ensured this curler lands here. Poised and outgoing, this Russian looker doesn’t only stand out in her sport, but also among the entire sports world as a whole - and thankfully, we can’t see her fading away any time soon.

#4: Ronda Rousey
Mixed Martial Arts

If we believed the stereotypes, then our idea of a female fighter would be, well, butch. But Ronda Rousey proves that strength is sexy. A record breaker in her sport, Rousey lived up to and even surpassed expectations by successfully and violently defending her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship. The Arm Collector also became the first ever American woman to medal in Olympic Judo in 2008, and has gone undefeated in all her MMA matchups. The lady who pioneered trash-talking in Women’s MMA has also modeled, acted, and appeared nude on the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s 2012 Body Issue. But perhaps even hotter is the fact that sex is a part of her ideal pre-fight ritual.

#3: Alex Morgan

Being able to say you’re an Olympic Gold Medalist and a Sports Illustrated model is probably quite rare, but it is certainly a strong argument for this soccer player’s inclusion here. Even going so far as to appear in the American magazine wearing nothing but body paint, Alex Morgan appears to be both fearless and absolutely gorgeous. You know you’ve caught the attention of the masses when a video of your golf swing catches the attention of media outlets, though we’re guessing the sexy little dance didn’t hurt either.

#2: Eugenie Bouchard

This French Canadian won Best newcomer during the 2013 Women’s Tennis Association tour, but we’re guessing you aren’t watching this video to hear about Eugenie Bouchard’s tennis career. Winning sponsorship deals with companies like Pinty’s, Nike and Coca-Cola, Genie has a large, loyal fan base that gobbles up every photo and video she appears in and that is what has made her a company man’s dream. One thing is for certain: whether at work or play, we’ll always enjoy watching this rising star.

Before we reveal our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Michelle Jenneke
- Alana Blanchard
- Danica Patrick
Auto Racing
- Antonija Mišura
- Soo Yeon Lee
Table Tennis
- Skylar Diggins

#1: Maria Sharapova

Taking the title of tennis’ sex symbol from Anna Kournikova, Maria Sharapova’s beauty does not depend on excessive makeup, stylists or Photoshop. Though it is immensely clear that she takes her sports career very seriously, this Russian’s looks are also improved by an image of inner beauty as she seems to highly value having fun and laughter. Both of those elements combined, along with her multitude of titles, make her the obvious choice to top our list.
