25 Sexy Athletes Who Should Be Household Names
You have seen beautiful women before. It is nothing new. They are all over the place.
But what about the ones on TV? The women you notice during the Olympics that you made a mental note about? Who are they?
I have put together a list of the 25 female athletes I am shocked the world doesn't know too much about. The women that deserve to be household names. All these women you are about to look out should be the next Alex Morgan of sports. Everyone should know who these women are.
25. Dana Volmer: Swimming
I love the Olympics but hate the time between Olympic games. Dana Volmer should become the Amanda Beard of the next four years and grow into a fan favorite.
24. Amber and Angela Cope: Racing
Every sport deserves a pair of beautiful twin athletes. Don't be shocked if you hear their names all over the place by 2013.
23. Erica Hosseini: Surfing
I have a tough time understanding how hardly any of the female surfers in the world get the love that they deserve. Erica Hosseini isn't just talented, she is a smokeshow.
22. Jessica Ennis: Track and Field
It is rare to see one woman hyped up so much prior to an Olympic games and then perform. Jessica Ennis is one of those rare women.
21. Lani Doherty: Surfing
If you are asking who is Lani Doherty, don't feel ashamed. I had no idea who she was either. But that is about to change.
20. Voula Papachristou: Track and Field
Just because someone doesn't know how to keep their mouth shut doesn't mean we shouldn't appreciate their beauty.
19. Jennifer Kessy: Beach Volleyball
Now that Jennifer Kessy has won a silver medal, she might be retiring from the sport she has played for many years. Too bad for us. We were just beginning to like her.
18. Kiira Korpi: Figure Skating
If Kiira Korpi isn't a household name before 2014, I will stop mentioning her name. Forever.
And I don't want to stop doing that.
17. Tsvetana Pironkova: Tennis
Outside of Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams, I know very little about the women of tennis. This is my time to learn. As is yours.
16. Ebba Jungmark: Track and Field
With a body like Ebba Jungmark's, who needs to work out?
15. Elisa Di Francisca: Fencing
Great! Now the women of fencing are even hot. What's next? Badminton?
14. Meghan Hardin: Golf
You might be feeling a bit confused, it is OK. Meghan Hardin is as new to you as she is to the rest of the world but hopefully not for too much longer.
13. Marta Menegatti: Beach Volleyball
As if the Italians weren't already a sexy group, now they have a beach volleyball player that just might be the next Alex Morgan.
12. Yanina Wickmayer: Tennis
I need to start watching more tennis. When did all the women become smoking hot models?
11. Jonelle Filigno: Soccer
The best moment of the entire Olympics occurred every time Jonelle Filigno and her Canadian National Team hit the pitch.
10. Sydney Leroux: Soccer
The other time I enjoyed the Olympics was when Sydney Leroux and Team USA was on the field. So when Canada and USA played, I almost passed out from excitement.
9. Christina Vukicevic: Track and Field
Christina Vukicevic is a reminder that the female track stars in Norway got some game.
8. Victoria Pendleton: Cycling
I watched bike racing in the Olympics for about ten seconds. It wasn't my cup of tea but Victoria Pendleton is.
7. Antonija Misura: Basketball
Say what you want, Antonija Misura is the reason people will watch women's basketball. She is the reason I do.
6. Darya Klishina: Track and Field
Darya Klishina wasn't in the Olympics in 2012, but that doesn't rule her out for 2016 in Rio. Now that is what I am waiting for.
5. Roxy Louw: Surfing
Roxy Louw meet the world. World meet Roxy Louw. You're welcome.
4. Michelle Jenneke: Track and Field
Is there a bigger name in the world of track and field than Michelle Jenneke? We get another four years to watch her grow before the 2016 Rio Games, enjoy.
3. Ellen Hoog: Field Hockey
The only reason, and I mean the only reason, I watched Field Hockey during the Olympics was because of Ellen Hoog. I had to see what else was out there.
2. Anastasia Ashley: Surfing
Anastasia Ashley is a truly talented female surfer that deserves her own reality show. I know I would watch it.
1. Sophie Horn: Golf
I made the mistake of not including Sophie Horn in more of my pieces. Well, that ends today!
