The Hottest Athletes from 50 Countries
Every country has beautiful women. You can search the entire globe and find at least one woman from every single country who qualifies as pretty. Try it out sometime—just don't ask me to pick up the expenses. That one you have to do on your own dime.
But, just like life, we have limits as to how many countries we can feature in one presentation. You wouldn't want to be bombarded by hotties from Bermuda, would you? I think we need to keep things simple and find hot female athletes from 50 countries I have carefully selected.
Since the Olympics are still a few weeks away, you need something to occupy that big brain, and why not look at the hottest female athletes from 50 different countries? Enjoy.
50. Chioma Ajunwa: Nigeria, Athlete
Can you guess who the only person, male or female, to take home a gold medal for Nigeria in the Olympics in track and field is?
49. Heidi El Tabakh: Egypt, Tennis
There aren't too many Egyptian/Canadian professional tennis players. In fact, Heidi El Tabakh is the only one.
48. Luuka Jones: New Zealand, Canoeing
A thought for the future to all my fans: Pay attention to New Zealand. The women are as hot as the temperature down there.
47. Guo Jingjing: China, Diving
Diving has never looked so good. Thank you, Guo Jingjing.
46. Georgina Pota: Hungary, Table Tennis
Have you ever tried to play table tennis? It is much more difficult than Forrest Gump makes it look.
45. Telma Monteiro: Portugal, Judo
Nothing says "back off" like a swift judo chop to the neck. Telma Monteiro already knows this—she is a champion judo star.
44. Blanka Vlasic: Croatia, High Jump
This will be the first time since 2008 the world will watch a track and field event without the beautiful Blanka Vlasic. She withdrew from Olympic competition this week due to nagging injuries.
43. Sarah Meier: Switzerland, Figure Skating
Sarah Meier has never won an Olympic figure skating medal, and never will now that she has retired.
42. Ásdís Hjálmsdóttir: Iceland, Javelin
Aside from the shock that Iceland has a track and field star, I am also surprised at the beauty of Ásdís Hjálmsdóttir. Simply amazing.
41. Sylwia Gruchala: Poland, Fencing
Not only is Sylwia Gruchala a fencing master, she is a soldier in Poland's army.
40. Sania Mirza: India, Tennis
In a country of over a billion people, Sania Mirza stands out as the sexiest female athlete of them all. Not too shabby.
39. Milagros Cabral: Dominican Republic, Volleyball
There are no laws against women's indoor volleyball uniforms. No laws at all.
38. Shelly Ann Fraser: Jamaica, Track and Field
Jamaica is the fastest country in the world. Don't believe me? Just watch the Olympics and see for yourself.
37. Ivet Lalova: Bulgaria, Track and Field
In case you were wondering, Ivet Lalova isn't available anymore. She is engaged to another sprinter, Simone Collio of Italy.
36. Carolina Torres: Chile, Pole Vault
Carolina Torres is a former Chilean pole vaulter. She now spends her time walking around poles instead of jumping over them.
35. Efthalia Koutroumanidou: Greece, Beach Volleyball
Efthalia Koutroumanidou is quite the mouthful. I think I need a water break after typing that one.
34. Caroline Wozniacki: Denmark, Tennis
This year started off promising for Caroline Wozniacki, but she has since fallen down the charts, even losing in the first round of Wimbledon to Tamira Paszek.
33. Kim Yu Na: South Korea, Figure Skating
I knew there was a reason to start watching figure skating, and Kim Yu Na is that reason.
32. Monica Gonzalez: Mexico, Soccer
The list of beautiful female soccer players continues to grow each year, but one of the first uber-hotties was Monica Gonzalez. She was an original.
31. Tatiana Ariza: Colombia, Soccer
If you weren't a Monica Gonzalez fan, you might want to consider Tatiana Ariza. She is yet another beautiful female soccer star.
30. Milka Duno: Venezuela, Racing
Milka Duno is the first female race car driver to make the list. I only wish there were more.
29. Marketa Slukova: Czech Republic, Beach Volleyball

Women's golf has been in need of another golden girl, and Beatriz Recari is it.
27. Carol Rodriguez: Puerto Rico, Track and Field
Yes, I know that Puerto Rico is technically a part of the United States. But are you complaining?

Belgium in the house. I wasn't sure I would be able to find enough women to choose from out of this small country.
25. Luciana Aymar: Argentina, Field Hockey
There has never been a better female field hockey player in the world than Luciana Aymar. Ever.
24. Angelica Bengtsson: Sweden, Pole Vault
Angelica Bengtsson is the hot young talent from Sweden on pace to become the next big thing in pole vaulting. Don't look for her in London, but she will be in the Olympics in four years.
23. Mari Motohashi: Japan, Curling
I was never a big fan of curling, but that was only because I didn't understand the sport. So women get to wear tights and position themselves like this? I love this sport.
22. Claudia Toth: Austria, Curling
From Japan to Austria, curling is still an Olympic sport I admire more than the skeleton. Thank you, tights.
21. Kelly Proper: Ireland, Track and Field
Who owns the Ireland women's record for the long jump? Kelly Proper, duh.

By the time you are done reading this field hockey player's name—Fatima Moreira De Melo—the slideshow will be over.

After a few years of drooling over her, Kiira Korpi is only two years away from reminding us why we love Finland in the Winter Olympics. See you in Sochi.
15. Daniela Hantuchova: Slovakia, Tennis
Now that Daniela Hantuchova has exposed herself in the ESPN Body Issue, what's next? Playboy. I am not objecting, just tossing out an idea.
14. Alina Fyodorova: Ukraine, Track and Field
Prior to today, I had no idea who Alina Fyodorova was. Thankfully, I discovered what could be the hottest woman ever from Ukraine.
13. Marta Menegatti: Italy, Beach Volleyball

10. Ana Ivanovic: Serbia, Tennis
It is about time Ana Ivanovic won an Olympic medal. We would love to see it this year.
9. Louisa Necib: France, Soccer
Louisa Necib doesn't look as pretty on the field because she is busy dominating her opponents. This is your chance to start looking at her from a different angle.
8. Leryn Franco: Paraguay, Javelin
Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. I had to include Leryn Franco. She is hands down the sexiest woman from Paraguay of all time.

Polo is a sport, right? More people might want to watch it now that they know about Paula Chermont.

I bet you didn't think Sydney Leroux was from Canada being that she plays for the USA. Well, she was born in Canada, but made the right choice to play for the USA.
5. Victoria Pendleton: England, Biking
Riding a bike isn't sexy unless Victoria Pendleton is the person on it.
4. Stephanie Rice: Australia, Swimming
If you haven't already fallen in love with Stephanie Rice, this just might be the year. Remember the Twitter post?
3. Alex Morgan: USA, Soccer
Not too many people agree that Alex Morgan is the hottest woman from the USA. I am not one of those people.
2. Anna Semenovich: Russia, Figure Skating
Being named the hottest female athlete in Russia is an honor in itself. The list of beautiful Russians is longer than the line at the DMV.
1. Roxy Louw: South Africa, Surfing
Yep, Roxy Louw. Who is she? Maybe it is about time you looked her up, she is definitely worth it.
