collage of 50 hot sports women

Hours of training. Dedication. Toned bodies. Tanned skins.

Women and sports make an awesome combo, and PopCrunch wanted to honor this combo by listing the hottest female sports figures from around the world!

We’ve ranked them according to hotness (you are free to agree or disagree with our ordering, but we think we did a pretty damn good job).

50. Daniela Hantuchová

Daniela Hantuchová

This 24-year-old tennis player was born in Slovakia. Apart from being a talented player (she won three WTA tournaments already), she is also gorgeous. And we are not the only ones to think like that. In fact, she has twice topped the ACE tennis magazine’s list with the world’s sexiest tennis players.

49. Jennie Finch

Jennie Finch

California is the state of beautiful women, and this lady is no exception. Jennie is probably the most famous softball player around the world, and we dare to say that this is not the result of her athletic performance alone!

48. Flavia Delaroli

Flavia Delaroli brazil swim team

Goddess of the Brazilian swimming team, Flavia is specialized in the 50 meters freestyle. She arrived at the finals on the Athens 2004 Olympic games. No wonder where that spectacular body is coming from.

47. Sabrina Ferilli

Sabrina Ferilli italian soccer

She is not an athlete, but she is tightly connected with the soccer world, being one of the most famous supporters of the Italian soccer team AS Roma. Her devotion to the club is so big that in order to celebrate the 2001 Italian championship title, she performed a striptease in the middle of the stadium, to the delight of the present fans. Her sexy calender sold over one million copies, which is a record in Italy. Sabrina, sei troppo bella!

46. Christine Arron

Christine Arron french woman

Christine was born in Guadeloupe, but she competes officially for France, on the track and field sprint events. She broke 100m European record some years ago. Christine made it to our list thanks to her exotic beauty and ripped body.

45. Natalie Gulbis

Natalie Gulbis golf

If you thought that golf was a game for old farts, you were wrong. This 24-years-old beauty started playing the sport at the early age of four, and now she is one of the attractions of the LPGA Tour. I wouldn’t mind doing a course with her.

44. Lauren Jackson

Lauren Jackson basketball

If you are into tall women, you probably won’t find anything to top Lauren Jackson. Her height is 6 feet and 5 inches, or 1,96 meters. Lauren is also considered one of the best basketball players in the world.

43. Mia St. John

Mia St. John boxer

Here is a gorgeous woman that you might want to refrain from whistling to while she passes by. Mia is an American professional boxer and Tae Kwon Do champion. Her boxing record is 22 wins and 1 draw, with 12 knockouts. Ouch! In 1999 she was also featured on the cover of Playboy.

42. Kari Traa

Kari Traa Norwegian skier

Born in 1974, this Norwegian freestyle skier is what you can call a sexy bomb. She is four times world champion and one time Olympic champion in the moguls event. These are not our favorite titles though. In 2002 she was declared the most sexy woman in Norway. Now that is an accomplishment!

41. Victoria Vanucci

Victoria Vanucci tennis player

Victoria started playing tennis at a very young age. Right after turning professional, however, a shoulder injury suddenly stopped her career. Well, her tennis career. Luckily (for us) she decided to become a model afterwards, with several appearances on magazines like Maxim and Playboy.

40. Danica Patrick

Danica Patrick indycar series

At 5′2 feet tall, and weighting 100 pounds, Danica is a heck of a sexy racing driver. She was born in Wisconsin, and currently competes in the IndyCar series. In 2005 Playboy invited her to get featured on the magazine, but she decline. Damn!

39. Tanith Belbin

Tanith Belbin ice skating

Yeah we also think that ice dancing is a lame sport. You can’t deny that watching the performance of this 24-years-old Canadian-American would be pleasant though. She is five-times U.S. National champion, 2006 Olympic silver medalist, and hot!

38. Francesca Piccinini

Francesca Piccinini volleyball player

Francesca is an Italian volleyball player. At a height of 6′1, she is able to spike at 304 cm from the ground (equivalent to 9′11). She also played over 330 official matches with the Italian national team. The woman is beautiful, but with such an athletic performance you can’t help but admire her.

37. Dara Torres

Dara Torres olympic games

One of the most famous athletes from the United States, Dara was the first swimmer to compete in four Olympic games. Despite having nine Olympic medals, no one ever gave her one for being one of the hottest swimmers around. We would!

36. Amy Acuff

Amy Acuff high jump olympics

Amy was born in Texas, 1975. She is a high jump competitor for the United States, and she participated in three Olympic games. Lately she also started a career as model, getting featured on magazines like FHM and Playboy (you should check that…).

One of the most famous female snowboarders in the world, Gretchen lives in Aspen, Colorado. I am not a fan of cold temperatures, but if she invited me over I would be booking my ticket straight away.

30. Gabrielle Reece

Gabrielle Reece female volleyball player

Gabrielle took a quite unusual career path. First she became a model, and then she started playing volleyball professionally. Well, we are fine with that, since it probably helped to make her body the statue it is today.

29. Michelle Wie

Michelle Wie golfer

I wonder if one should spell her surname like the Nintendo console. Anyway, this is the youngest entry of our list. She was born in 1989 (make the maths lazy ass) in Hawaii. Back in 2005 she became a professional golfer, and now she takes part in the LPGA.

28. Victoria Adams

Victoria Adams Beckham

Before people start bitching, the list covers “hot girls from the sports world,” which goes beyond athletes. Victoria is married to famous soccer player David Beckham, so we figured she is qualified to appear here. Actually, take a look at the picture and let me know if these curves are not enough credentials.

27. Heather Mitts

Heather Mitts soccer

When I see soccer players like this, I wonder why men and women are not allowed to play together. Heather plays in the U.S. National Soccer Team (she is a defender in the case you were wondering). In 2004 she was also elected the “Hottest Female Athlete” by ESPN. No kidding!

26. Misty May

Misty May volleyball beauty

25. Milene Domingues

Milene is the ex-wife of soccer legend Ronando. That alone would be enough to enter on our list, but to top it off she is also one of the best female soccer players in the world, and pretty damn hot. They had a child as well, and I wonder if they kid will inherit their talent.

24. Laure Manaudou

Laure Manaudou swimmer

Laure is a lovely French girl of 22 years old. She is also incredibly talented, being the current holder of the world swimming records for the 400m and 200m freestyle. A couple of months ago she became very popular thanks to some nude pictures of herself that leaked on the web (Google is your friend if you want to find them).

20. Amy Taylor

Amy was a soccer player with the Australian national team, and she played on the United States professionally as well. Back in 2000 she posed for a nude calendar with her team mates. Too bad we could not include the whole team here!

This is the third golfer to appear in our list (yeah, I am also wondering if I should start playing that…). She started modeling at a very young age, and in 2004 she became a professional player. She has 26 years, and was born in Australia.

17. Kristina Lum

Kristina is an Olympic synchronized swimmer. She was one of the first female swimmers to use a male partner. Well, I am not that good with synchronized movements underwater, but I volunteer myself as well….

16. Tatiana Grigorieva

Tatiana Grigorieva pole vault

As you can see we are starting to enter into the “really hot” zone. Tatiana was born in Russia, but she competes for Australia on the pole vault discipline. She is a bombshell, what can I say?

Logan is one of the most complete American volleyball players (and one of the sexiest, we might add). She was born in California, and that is where she currently lives.

14. Elisabetta Canalis

Elisabetta Canalis soccer

If you are not familiar with the Italian culture, let me summarize it this way: Elisabeta Canalis is one of the most desired women on the whole country. What is her connection with the world of sports you might ask? Well, she used to date famous soccer player Christian Vieri, and she also became the presenter of a soccer TV program. (Do yourself a favor a search the Google images for her name…)

13. Ana Paula Mancino

Ana Paula Mancino volleyball

Brazil also has hot bodies, and this girl is the proof. Ana Paula was born in 1971, and she started playing volleyball at the age of 12. When she was 19 she moved to Italy to play with the Campobasso team.

12. Niki Gudex

Niki is a professional mountain biker. She lives in Sydney, Australia. Apart from competing in that sport she is also a model. The magazine FHM included her on the “100 Sexiest Women in the World” list on 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2005. Nice!

11. Malia Jones

Malia Jones surfer

You cant make a list with hot women without including a surfer, right? Malia was born in 1977 in Hawaii, and many people say that she contributed to raise the interest on the sport among young girls. Well, she got me interested as well.

10. Romi Bean

Romi Bean cheerleader

Ah, cheerleaders! Romi is one of the 34 members of the Denver Broncos cheerleader team. Wait a minute, did I just say 34? Holy crap, imagine what it must be to visit their changing room after the game….

9. Amanda Beard

Amanda Beard swimmer

This is our fifth swimmer? Man, what a blessed sport. Apart from being hot as hell, Amanda is also a fantastic swimmer. She made her first Olympic appearance at the age of 14! She also got featured in several publications, including Sports Illustrated, FHM and Playboy.

8. Maria Kirilenko

Maria Kirilenko

Yet another Russian tennis player, I know. But it would be pure negligence to leave Maria Kirilenko out of this list right? A bit of trivia: she is a very good friend of Maria Sharapova. I found this info Wikipedia, and I guess it will keep my imagination busy for a while.

7. Jenny Adams

Jenny Adams track and field

This track and field American athlete got famous after she appeared on the FHM magazine “Sexy Olympic” edition. She will probably participate in the next Olympic games too, so keep an eye for the lady.

6. Daniela Cicarelli

Daniela Cicarelli soccer

Not a sportswoman, but the ex-girlfriend of Ronaldo. He is one of the best soccer players of all time, but letting this girl go was definitely a dumb thing to do. The picture says it all, I am speechless.

5. Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova tennis

This is a woman not for the faint of heart. At 6 feet and 2 inches, the Russian beauty is a former number one tennis player in the world. And she only has 20 years. I just couldn’t find if she is engaged (personally I prefer to think she is still a virgin).

4. Haley Cope

Haley Cope swimmer

Haley was born in Chico, California. Her best swimming performance was the gold medal on the world championship. We would be her fans even without these achievements though, especially after she appeared on Maxim and Playboy.

3. Alisson Stokke

Alisson Stokke pole vaulter

Allison is a pole vaulter for the California high school. She doesn’t have any major sport achievements to date, but she became immensely popular on the Internet after a big website featured her pictures. Well, after I saw the images I became her biggest fan immediately.

2. Bia e Branca

Bia e Branca swimming

No, you are not seeing double. They are actually twins. These two hot bombs come from Brazil, and they represented their country on the 2007 Pan American games on the synchronized swimming. I was able to read the local press during the event, and they received most of the coverage. No wonder why!

1. Ana Kournikova

Ana Kournikova tennis

We know that placing Ana Kournikova on top of a “hot” list is becoming a clichĂ©. Trust us that we really tried to find someone else. After the strenuous task of analyzing ever curve of her body, on every picture that we could find on the web, we could not help but give her the first position. She is hot beyond what we thought was possible….
