The 40 Hottest Gymnasts of All Time
An idea so simple yet it has never reached the surface until now. This is one of the greatest lists of women ever compiled in the history of the internet.
Okay, so it is not the greatest list ever but it is damn close. This list has everything a man wants, beautiful woman that are more flexible than a slinky. There are even some celebrities in the mix.
For safety's sake, I have decided to not include any Chinese gymnasts. Does anyone know how old they really are? Even after the scandal that was all over the Bejing Olympics, we still don't know exactly how old they are.
The 2012 Summer Olympics are two years away so in the mean time we can take a look at some of the most beautiful and sexy gymnasts, and some extras, of all time.
We begin with a stretch that can only be accomplished by a woman. If a man attempted to stretch like this he would have to use a wheelchair the rest of his life.
39. Tiffany Tolnay
Tiffany Tolnay is the first of several University of Georgia gymnasts to make the list.
After seeing all the babes from Georgia, you might want to invest some of your time and energy in heading to a tournament or two next season. These women are hot.
38. Gina Nuccio
Speaking of the University of Georgia, Gina Nuccio helps solidify my point that the women from Georgia's gymnastics squad combine to form a deadly combination.
37. Alex Orlando
If you are like me, when you hear that name, you probably didn't expect to see such a cutie. I was actually looking for a lounge singer from Florida.
Alex Orlando is much more than just a name. She is a Canadian rhythmic gymnast. So for the next two years, you probably will not hear anything about her but in 2012, look out!
36. Sandra Izbasa
Every time I hear about Romania, all people say is how incredibly hot the women are and how you can literally bump into hotties walking down the street.
However, if you bump into Sandra Izbasa, be ready for a shove back. She stands 5'6" so in gymnastics, she is a giant.
After winning a few medals in Bejing, she has also proven she belongs on top the list for best gymnast.
35. Tasha Schwikert
It is shocking that there aren't more babes from UCLA that made this list. In fact, Tasha, I am not even going to attempt to pronounce that last name, is one of only two babes from UCLA to make this list.
How balanced do you have to be to hold for a pose on a pole eight feet high? I couldn't even grab that thing, let alone pull myself up.
34. Shannon Miller
Yep, that is the chick from the 1994 and 1996 US olympic team.
What is the one thing you would probably never guess she does for a living? She is a lawyer. Some people would have coasted on those gold medals but Shannon took it a step further and went to Boston College to study law where she graduated in 2007.
33. Ricki Lebegern
There is three chicks in this photo but the one we need to focus in on is the beauty in the middle, Ricki Lebegern.
Ricki is one of the better gymnasts in the SEC out of the University of Alabama. If you want to say it feel free, Roll Tide!
32. Simona Peycheva
I still don't see the need to have rhythmic gymnastics in the olympics, but I am at the bottom of the good idea totem pole, so my opinion won't weigh to highly on the Olympic committee.
Simona Peycheva gives me a reason to change my mind with moves like the one in the picture.
31. Evgeniya Kanayeva
The flexible meter is off the charts on this one.
When you can look at the back of your foot from 2 inches away, you must be made of jello.
30. Dominique Dawes
How many people have already forgotten about this beauty from Atlanta? I know I haven't.
I have been waiting for a moment to use Dominique Dawes in a slideshow and now I finally have a reason. Thanks Bleacher Report.
29. Svetlana Khorkina
From this photo, I am sure most people do not recognize this tall hot Russian. It is probably because she has a full head of hair. For those of us who watch the olympics, she was the tall skinny chick from Russia with the short boy hair cut.
Now that you have dug deep into your mind to remember the hideous short hair, take a look at what she looks like with long hair, she is a babe.
28. Terin Humphrey
How else do you describe a babe that poses in a bathing suit one day and the next day is an officer of the law?
That's right, she is now a police officer in Raymore, MO. Who would have thought that a former olympic medalist would be defending the law a few years following the end of her gymnastics career.
27. Olga Kapranova
I continue to be blown away by the flexibility of these women. How does she not fall over when standing like that?
She is also balancing a baton on her foot while doing, what can only be described as, a standing spilt.
26. Jamie Dantzscher
As the second hottie from the UCLA gymnastics alumni, Jamie Dantzscher is by far the hottest and one of the best after winning a bronze medal in the Sydney Olympic games back in 2000.
What is even better than the medal she won in Sydney is the 28 perfect scores she received while on the UCLA gymnastics team. That is a record that will be very hard to break or even come close to breaking.
25. Sandra Mayer
Sandra Mayer is probably the most underrated hottie on the list.
Here is a video of her from six years ago in 2004...
24. Florica Leonida
I found this hottie by accident. I still am not too sure who this is but since most people are not worried about the origins of sexy chicks, we will just take this chance to admire the photo a little longer.
Who said wearing sunglasses at night wasn't hot?
23. Kristina Baskett
Aside from Shawn Johnson, Kristina Baskett, no relation to Hank, is the cutest gymnast on my list.
She is the second reason to watch Utah gymnastics next season and the most important. What is a Ute? Does anyone know?
22. Elena Posevina
If you look at Elena Posevina's Wiki page, all you will find is a list of gold medals she won at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic games and that's about it.
Oh wait a second, she is also Russian and sometimes spells her name Yelena instead of Elena. Amazing isn't it?
21. Andreea Raducan
The more Romanian women I see, the more likely I am going on vacation to Romania.
Andreea Raducan is just one of a million beautiful babes, most of them gymnasts, walking the streets of Romania these days.
20. Shawn Johnson
Because of her performance in Bejing back in 2008, Shawn Johnson has become one of America's most beloved celebrities. Not only is she hot, she is legal guys, but she is also more ripped than Brock Lesnar.
Oh, did I forget to mention that besides her four olympic medals, she also won Dancing with the Stars?
19. Catalina Ponor
I continued to be amazed at how hot these chicks are and also how most of them are already retired. Catalina Ponor is a retired gymnast from the great country of Romania at the age of 23.
But after winning three gold medals in 2004, I would retire too.
18. Carly Patterson
What sport, besides gymnastics, places a 22-year-old in the hall of fame? That's right! Carly Patterson has already been named to the USA gymnastics hall of fame and she is not even old enough to rent a car.
What do you do after winning an Olympic gold medal in the all-around competition? You retire and begin a singing career with Papa Joe's Records, Jessica Simpson's father. Probably not the best career choice but it's better than disapearing.
17. Daria Bijak
Daria, besides having her own MTV show in the late 90's, is a very talented two time National Champion from Germany who know flips for the University of Utah.
I now have at least one good reason to watch the Utes gymnastics team next season.
16. Corey Hartung
I know a few things about the stuff my body can do and what Corey is attempting to accomplish is not one of them.
In fact, after I tried doing that particular move the other day, I found myself in the hospital trying to move my spine back in place.
15. Nikki Childs
I was going to speak for a minute about how sexy Nikki Childs is, but I decided I would let you enjoy the view instead.
Nikki is another on a long list of babes from the University of Georgia.
14. New Olympic Sport: Night Gown Gymnastics
I see this as a revolution in the world of Olympic gymnastics. Just stay with me for a second and imagine a world where beautiful women, as shown above, dress in night gowns and dance around doing cool stretchy things.
A guy can dream can't he?
13. Nastia Liukin
Nastia Liukin went from being virtually unknown to an overnight celebrity after she crushed the competition in Bejing back in 2008.
I swear, every time I hear her last name, I think about Street Fighter when Ryu did his rising dragon fist.
12. Courtney Kupets
My final hottie from my new favorite gymnastics team, the University of Georgia Bulldogs.
Courtney has a beautiful smile and an amazing talent. The only downside to her is that sometimes she can not figure out how to put on her hat. It is just a little to the right Courtney.
11. Katie Matusik
I think she is the blonde on the left. Oh wait, maybe she is the one to the right.
No, it is definitely the babe to the right.
You know what, I could care less which one wants to claim to be Katie, either one works for me.
10. Kat Ding
Kat is not making this choice easy is she? She is sitting, in what only could be described as a strip club, with dollar bills hanging from her top.
If you want to date a gymnast, she might just be your best bet because this chick likes to party.
9. Karin Wurm
Karin Wurm is hot. She is also from which school?
For those of you playing at home, there is a GIANT hint in this picture!
8. Anna Bessenova
At the ripe old age of 26, Anna Bessenova is retired from gymnastics. At 26? Are you kidding me?
If only other jobs in this world allowed us to retire at the age of 26, there would be less crime in the world and more fun.
7. Stacy Barlett
Doesn't Stacy Barlett look so sweet and innocent? She is the type of hottie every guy would love to bring home to show off. She has a great smile, beautiful body, and an amazing pair of eyes.
Disclaimer: When I say eyes, I am actually referring to the twins.
6. Olivia Wilde
So this was a tough one to judge for a few reasons.
The first reason was because she is not a gymnast.
The second reason was forgotten because I noticed the picture and removed any other reasons from the list so she could be on it.
5. Alina Kabayeva
Alina Kabayeva is showing the men of this world that gymnasts are more than just flips and kicks.
According to the tiger fur, or lion fur, I am not really sure what that is but anyways, she is smoking hot.
4. Alicia Sacramone
Alicia Sacramone is easily the hottest US Olympic gymnast of all time. I have seen the pictures and done the research and none of them can compete with her overall beauty.
She also knows how to have a good time and can wear a bikini better than anyone else on this list except for one babe.
3. Lacey Alexandra
I already can tell that you are googling Lacey right now. Don't worry, she is not an olympic gymnast but she is a gymnast.
She has been a gymnast for the past 10 years and for that, we thank you.
2. Corina Ungureanu
Remember when I said Alicia Sacramone was the hottest chick on this list in a bikini except for one babe?
This would be that babe and that would be the better looking bikini/lingerie. Either way, it is sexy and finer than a glass of wine from 1932.
1. Almudena Cid
How flexible can one person be?
Let me count the ways...
