Finding the Next 20 Great Sports Hotties
How tired are you of seeing Kim Kardashian? It seems like every few months she has a different man, takes a photo shoot with him, and then moves onto the next guy. I say no more!
We need fresh faces in the world of sports whether it be WAGs, athletes, or even an offspring. Here are the next 20 great sports hotties that have burst onto the scene and are here to stay.
20. Michelle Larcher De Brito
Don’t worry; she turned 18 a few months ago. De Brito is young, but is quickly gaining experience and respect as she plays her way deeper into major tournaments. Many believe that she has top 10 talent and for our purposes, has what it takes to be the next tennis hottie.
19. Eva Kodouskova
When the Washington Wizards selected Jan Vesesly with the 5th overall selection in last week's draft, they knew they were getting a good player and a potential cornerstone of the franchise.
What they did not know was that they were also getting Vesely's girlfriend Eva Kodouskova, who planted a rather intense congratulatory kiss on her man upon his selection.
Welcome to the NBA my friend...you have quite supporting cast.
18. Leslie Osborne
e.g. 'Chicago Blackhawks', 'Chicago Cubs'
The United States women's national team is taking their talents to Germany in a quest to take back the World Cup. She is a talented midfielder who will be an important part of the mix and also a great reason to turn on the television. If the team can go far, she will only get that much more exposure.
17. Katie Mccutcheon
Besides being a superstar volleyball player in college, she had the rare opportunity to be one of the contestants on Chad Ochocinco’s VH1 show The Ultimate Catch.
She did not win, but putting herself in that situation shows how she is committed to staying relevant in the sports world and loves hanging out with the biggest and loudest personalities.
16. Morgan Pressel
At 23, she is the youngest female to ever win a LPGA major tournament. She has been rising up the ranks and will hopefully achieve her goal of being the number one player in the world one day. Until then, she is simply fighting her way up the ranks on this list.
15. Alicia Sacramone
She is a young and exciting gymnast who has been linked to Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn. Despite the fact that she is clearly the better athlete, she finds something appealing about him.
Her career accomplishments include a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and she will look to improve come 2012.
14. Allison Baver
Baver is a short track speed skater who has been linked to Dwight Howard. While she is much shorter than him (who isn't), she seems to make it work.
The two do not seem to be very serious, but it is nice to see a new face in the NBA. I hope she sticks around for a while, because it would be interesting to see her convince Howard to get on the ice.
13. Holly Sweeney
Have you heard of a guy named Rory Mcllroy? Well, she is dating him, and as he rises up the ranks, we expect an Elin Nordegren type rise with him.
She was there when Mcllroy clinched on the 18th hole, giving him the U.S. Open championship. The on and off relationship seems to be fully on now, and I think I know why.
12. Alex Morgan
Another talented US women’s soccer star, Morgan is a young star who will hopefully make the trip with the national team to the next World Cup. She played her college soccer at the University of California, and showed us how soccer can be a very tolerable sport to watch.
11. Candice Crawford
A former Miss Missouri USA, Crawford is now the wife of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. The new couple wed on May 28, 2011, placing her as the newest and hottest football WAG.
Hopefully she will have the magic touch that Cowboys fans need in order to get the team to win a couple of playoff games.
10. Ashley Cochrane
She is the wife of MLS player Ryan Cochrane. Nobody knows too much about their MLS stars, so she is irrelevant by association. She was a cheerleader for the Houston Texans though, giving her just enough points to get on this list.
9. Karina Smirnoff
Smirnoff is a Dancing with the Stars dancer and a ballroom dancing champion all over the world. Much to my surprise, despite his general lack of coordination and big gut, she fell for pitcher Brad Penny.
They are engaged and set to be married at some point, and while she is known within the reality TV community, soon she will enter the sports world as well.
8. Rachel Bradshaw
e.g. 'Chicago Blackhawks', 'Chicago Cubs'
Daughter of Hall-of-Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw, Rachel is a talented young woman. She is an aspiring country singer who is currently working her way through the business and hopes to make it big in the near future.
We get to take credit for finding her first and naming her one of our up and coming hotties.
7. Jessica Szohr
Winning a Super Bowl ring makes your love life a little bit easier. Aaron Rodgers surely lead with that line in order to land this very hot actress.
She is still under the radar and I do not think she minds it for the time being. Luckily, Green Bay is not the media capital of the world, which should ease her nerves about the paparazzi chasing her at the local diner.
6. Kat Reilly
Reilly is another volleyball star who makes it on this list for being tall, athletic, and downright beautiful.
Though her collegiate playing days are behind her, she is a fresh face that has remained in the sport. I would love to see her make it to the Olympics one day where she would be flying around in a bathing suit.
5. Paulina Gretzky
Wayne Gretzky’s daughter has spent time as a pop singer and model and has made the list because she is still relatively unknown despite her father’s fame. She is on her way to becoming a household name before you know it.
I don’t think we can go as far as call her “The Great One” just yet, but give it time.
4. Anna Burns
Burns is a former Miss Hooters International winner and Wes Welkers girlfriend. I knew there had to be a reason he was in such a hurry to get that knee fixed.
Besides being every male’s dream woman, she is fairly unknown and despite my personal hate for Welker, he has done very well.
3. Meghan Gardler
Gardler spent her college career playing for those great UCONN Lady Huskies teams. Despite not being the best player on the floor, she stood out for being the hottest.
She is the ultimate team player who knew the entire time that she would be fine because of her good looks. This may be her eventual claim to fame, but hey, I think that counts for something.
2. Ali Watt
Watt is former University of Georgia basketball standout and now models and is one of the hotties everyone needs to be looking out for.
Unfortunately, we will not be seeing her play in the WNBA anytime soon, but it is nice to see that she has picked up a hobby and is running with it.
1. Karlie LeRoy
Say hello to this new WAG. Well, her and her boyfriend, Colts receiver Blair White, may not be a new couple, but they are certainly new to the sports scene.
She has done some local advertising and modeling, though I believe the best is yet to come.
