These beautiful female athletes showed us that you don’t have to sacrifice looks and other achievements when you reach the top of your game. Let’s take time and look at some of the most attractive women in the world of sport!
It doesn’t take an expert to see why somebody’s called “The Karate Hottie.” Michelle Waterson made herself in the UFC a reputation as a mixed-martial artist who looks great even though she has left and right pain. But when she’s out of the cages, she’s so busy being like a bee. Waterson was shown in non-UFC TV shows and even competed at one point in American Ninja Warrior. You can also watch it for a single of the Megadeth album Endgame in a music video.
There’s still a Grand Slam title Camila Giorgi has to earn, but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before she has one to her name. This Italian tennis player made it in the fourth quarter-finals of the Grand Slam during the 2018 Wimbledon Championship 6 years after her debut in Wimbledon. However, many people don’t know she’s won great matches in the past. The winner was Victoria Azarenka, Caroline Wozniacki, and Maria Sharapova in the match!
Ali Krieger joined the picture as one of America’s most important players. National Women’s Football Team. While she is no longer in her early stages, she plays at Orlando Pride on a regular basis. We should not forget that she was part of the same team that was eventually championed during the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Her teammates called her “Warrior Princess,” and why is it not difficult to see. She even supported her brother Youtube star in the past.
Softball and baseball are not the only activities to consider as you hear about the Olympics. However, as she guided the U.S. squad to a win in the 2004 games, Jennie Finch also blew us all. According to Time, she is one of the most illustrious softball teams. She is also a member of the USA Softball Hall of Fame as a tribute to her success in sport. She’s no novice to the tiny screen when it comes to non-sports. Maybe you also see her in Orange County’s The Real Housewives!
You’ll realize how risky the sport is if you’ve ever attempted surfing before. This may be real, but it never fails to make Alana Blanchard seem like an effortless operation! And when she watched Bethany Hamilton losing an arm due to a shark assault, she never lost her composure. To support the Rip Curl swimwear line too, the ASP World Tour regular has gone into modelling. She just sealed the knot with her fellow surfer, Jack Freestone. Just in 2017, they were blessed with a boy!
Whitney Miller is not like any other female athlete on this chart that you can find. She was originally known, however, for efforts not associated with sports! In 2012, after winning the Miss United States pageant, we came to know her. She decided to pursue a sports career soon after that. In martial arts, Miller has tried her hand and earned herself a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt. As a wake surfer, she has become a professional as well.
What else can we say about the great Maria Sharapova? There was a point when she was considered to be the face of women’s tennis. The Russian-born athlete was only 18 years old when she ended up becoming No. 1 in the world. She also went on to claim 36 single titles! When we talk about tennis, people take Grand Slams to be the indicator of greatness. The fact that she has five titles to her name is certainly all the proof we need of her tennis glory. Aside from her two wins at the French Open, she got one each during Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Australian Open.
It is quite unfortunate if a popular meme overlooks your sports credentials. This was true for McKayla Maroney, who made gymnastic waves after one of the Fierce Five won gold in the 2012 Summer Olympics. After receiving the silver medal, they photographed the gymnast and it became a popular meme on the Internet. He went along with this slogan: “McKayla wasn’t impressed.” After suffering numerous injuries, she retired from the sport.
Although Anna Kournikova is no longer active in sport, she has established herself as another player of tennis. At the turn of the millennium she arrived on the scene with her incredible winning Grand Slam in 1999 and 2002. Sadly, after a serious back injury, the Russian player had to retire at the age of 21. Nevertheless, the media still loves to follow her. This was even more true after she married Enrique Iglesias, a talented pop singer.
With her sporting career, Caroline Wozniacki not only made a name for herself, but she was also the center of attention thanks to her relationships with Rory McIlroy and David Lee. She might just be the biggest female tennis player pound by pound! From 2008 to 2011 the Danish sports women earned the highest number of WTA singles among female players. Only last year, after defeating Simona Halep in the Australian Open Women’s Singles final match, she finally won her first Grand Slam.
Another talented female athlete who has made headlines is Michelle Jenneke, although the stories are not necessarily about her victories. During the Summer Youth Olympics 2010, the hurdler placed silver in the 100 m hurdles. With the fascinating warm-up routine she employs before each race, the vibrant athlete has made a name for herself. She graced the much-awaited edition of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit in 2013. However, she is more than just eye candy. The Australian went to study mechatronics at Sydney University as well!
There was a lot of interest in the members of Team U.S. when the 2018 Winter Olympics rolled in. This alpine skier was one of the figures that fans were eager to watch during the Pyeongchang tournament. Lindsey Vonn earlier placed gold back in 2010 for her downhill performance, so this time around she set a lot of expectations. Last year, she placed only bronze, although this is nothing to laugh about! She, after all, also has a number of World Championship titles under her belt.
Taylor Mackenzie Pischke, the Canadian volleyball player, was definitely made for excellence in the sport. After all, her very own father has two Olympic medals for the sport in her blood! Since 2012, when she was on the beach volleyball team, she has been playing for the Canadian national team. Over the course of her career, she has since earned 9 medals.
When you hear just how many medals she has accumulated over the course of her career, it is quite astounding. In almost every single competition she has participated in, Ellen Hoog has walked away with various kinds of silverware. When she struck gold back in 2008 and 2012, the field hockey star earned her biggest Olympics victories. However, gold was also placed by the Dutch midfield player in the World Cup, the Champions Trophy, and the European Games. None other than Ritual Hockey sponsors her.
We bet you can’t think of a woman in NASCAR as being more powerful than the fantastic Danica Patrick. While there are other riders on the track that were phenomenal, she took it to a new level with her performance during the Sprint Cup series in 2013. Since then, she has made history, becoming the only woman that places three times in the Top 10. Although she has since despised her career, she is definitely one of the biggest NASCAR racers in history.
Ronda Rousey is likely going to be somebody that you’ll think about when we talk about female sport. Once an enigma in the UFC, the MMA athlete is recognized for contributing to his growing popularity. Although her undefeated series is over, this unfortunate reality has done nothing to keep her from the light of day! Since then she has been working on the WWE and Action films like The Expendables 3 and Furious 7.
If you want to talk about the sport of pole vaulting, you’ll end up talking about Allison Stokke. Sadly, the 30-year-old woman benefited from the attention that she had got.

Currently, she serves with people including Nike and Athleta! Did you realize she and Rickie Fowler, a golfer, are engaged?

As a quarterback in the LFL Legends Football League0 Rypien has played for both Seattle Mist and Baltimore Charm. She is one of the best players in the league which she may have just inherited from her father, Brett Rypien, who was the former quarterback of Boise State. The league has been deemed many things but having Rypien involved showcases the athletic abilities of these female athletes.
We have no hesitations that Team USA is one of the teams to beat in women’s football. In the last two decades, the national team has dominated the scene quite a bit, and we dares say that Alex Morgan was integral to this success. She is getting closer to hundred goals and leading the team to the 2015 World Cup victory. During the 2011 competition, she also helped the team reach the top spot. How is it that she’s still so young? Wow.
When you look at your family tree, Jennifer Lacy’s sports career does not come as a surprise. Since her father Lee Lacy once played in Major League baseball, athletic talent has been running in her blood. However, Lacy opted to play basketball and even joined the WNBA in 2006. After several years of her professional career, Shougang decided to play in China for Beijing. Since 2015, she has nevertheless been a free agent.
As she plays a sport for an underdog national, Winifer Fernandez is not unlike most people on the list. The Dominican Republic is happy to have her on its volleyball team! Since 2012, she has represented the Caribbean nation and captured many hearts with her amazing performance during Brazil’s 2016 Olympics. She may not have led the team to victory, but she is nevertheless a national hero! She helped the team put gold on the bright side during the 2017 Bolivarian Games.
In the complex field of snowboarding, Chloe Kim is deemed to be a prodigy.

It’s interesting to hear that she was admitted to the prestigious Princeton University Class of 2022.
While we can’t deny that Ronda Rousey is the UFC’s highest-profile star ever seen, let’s not forget other MMA athletes! Paige VanZant, who might be young but has already made an impact on the field, is hot on her heels. It is true that, during the early parts of her career, she was no stranger to losing, but she still has plenty of raw potential. She also reached second place in Dancing With The Stars in 2016 when it comes to non-sporting careers!
These days, WWE has become an international platform of sorts. The best wrestlers from various parts of the world have been drawn! Becky Lynch, who originated from the Republic of Ireland, is one performer to look out for. Although she established herself as a fan favorite, she was originally meant to be a heel. It didn’t take long for her to have crowds who wanted her to bring big titles home. We daresay that even larger than Ronda Rousey herself, Becky “The Man” Lynch can become!
Gabby Douglas is one of the renowned Fierce Five who took the lead at the Summer Olympics in 2012. You will see why she is considered to be such a groundbreaking pioneer when you hear all about her accomplishments. She still received the best scores for her Olympic level performances, although there are many gymnasts in the world! Apart from this, she was the first African-American Olympian to be an all-around individual champion. She still has a long road ahead of her, and during the 2020 Tokyo games, we are sure she won’t fail to impress!
If you haven’t heard about her, you might remember her as Antonija Misura. This is one female superstar who performed more than most basketball players, even though he was only in her thirties. At the international level she represented Croatia. Her best time was in 2009 when the star of basketball helped bronze the land at Pescara during the Mediterranean Games. Nate Robinson of the NBA said she “can be the most beautiful basketball woman to lace up some sneakers.”
We can not deny how Misty May-Treanor established herself as one of the biggest names in the field of women’s volleyball, even though she quit the sport in 2012. On three different occasions she won Olympic gold. The U.S. National Team won in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics with her in the squad. Many people commended her and Kerri Walsh Jennings for making “the greatest beach volleyball team ever.” She has received her Master’s degree in Training and Athletic Administration in the passing years. Cool!
It is true that when she came on stage, Robin Bone did not actually surpass the high standards that people had of her. Despite this, we can’t deny that one of the best pole vaulters the sport has ever seen is this Canadian athlete. She’s only in her mid-twenties, so she’s got many years to accomplish her real potential. As we all know, with the likes of Alysha Newman and Kelsie Ahbe making waves of their own, Canada could be the best place to excel in pole vaulting.
We’ve already written about multiple tennis female superstars, but without Serena Williams there was no way of finishing the list! In the past two decades, nobody else has had such a big impact on the sport. The California athlete has certainly brought women’s tennis to a completely new level. Although she has a lot of support for her name, did you know she made $85 million from the courts? Whoa. Whoa. So, if you’ve got as many Grand Slams as she does.
Is it really important to inform us all about the amount of attractive women in tennis? We can not argue that this is true with Eugenie Bouchard, a Canadian athlete. The young woman has not yet been given the Grand Slam honor, so we are sure it is just time she did so!
In our books, Hilary Knight is certainly a ray of sunshine! The hockey star never managed to warm our hearts with her happy attitude. Many people, however, are surprised to see the medium distance behind the joyful exterior of the greatest star of hockey. The nine-time winner of the IIHF World Women’s Championship also helped the U.S. National Team to win the Olympics. She helped Team U.S.A. win two silvers and gold!
It happened when Stephanie Rice was Australia’s biggest swimming hope. In 2008, the 200 m, 400 m and 200 m relay race struck gold. She finally set World Records in these three competitions! It’s easy to see why she is awarded the Order of Australia Medal. We are sad to hear that after her retirement in 2014, she no longer plays at her profession. However, as a coach for a company called CoachUp, she is active in sports.
While Natalie Gulbis is not the most successful woman in the sport industry, one can argue that she is certainly among the most recognizable female golfers of all time. For several reasons, the regular LPGA tour has become a household name in her field. She has become a marketing icon in the last 10 years alone with a great deal of support for golf and swimwear under her belt. You may also remember her during her regular apprenticeship in Celebrity.
Aly Raisman was called one of the Fierce Five in 2012. She became one of the Final Five in 2016. As she was only starting out, she sure blew Americans completely.
