The 35 Most Eligible Sports Hotties
It was bound to happen but Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly have called it quits after a three year relationship. According to People, it was an amicable split between the two.
It is nothing new, men and woman break up. It happens. That is part of life. When it comes to the sports world, sometimes it just has to do with timing. It is hard for athletes, from training to playing, to have enough time for themselves, let alone another person.
As for the fans, we hate to see our favorite athletes have to deal with the emotions of a break up but we do love to know that, however small it may be, there might be a chance, one day, to land a one of the following 35 beautiful single sports hotties.
35. Minka Kelly: Derek Jeter's Ex
In the next few weeks, we will find out why no one feels sorry for Derek Jeter. He will find himself cozening up with another Hollywood bombshell.
As for Minka Kelly, she has more important matters to tend to like worrying about her new television show Charlie's Angels. Even if the show is cancelled after one episode, just knowing Minka is in it will get me to watch it.
34. Arantxa Rus: Tennis
I think I am compelled to explain exactly who Arantxa Rus is and where she came from.
Aside from being the worlds highest ranked Dutch tennis star, she is originally from a town in Holland called Monster. That is not a joke. It is a legit place and she is from there.
33. Rachel Unitt: Soccer
Rachel Unitt is not no ordinary female soccer player. Sure she is beautiful but the one thing that stands out the most is when she was 14 years old she made the Wolverhampton Wanderers Women Football Club.
She was playing professional soccer when I was worrying about which high school to attend. Rachel Unitt is as legit as female soccer players can come. Her beauty is just an added bonus.
32. Sabine Lisicki: Tennis
You know you have made it when you have a Wikipedia page.
Sabine Lisicki watched her fame grow in 2011 when she made it to the semifinals of the Wimbledon Championships. She was the first wildcard in Wimbledon history to ever make it that far.
If she is looking for some extra work, I am sure we could find some people in need of a few private tennis lessons.
31. Sasha Cohen: Figure Skating
Sasha Cohen first burst onto the scene in the movie Borat, where she played a popular television personality in Kazakhstan.
Wait a minute. Something does not sound right about this. Whoops, I was talking about a different Sasha Cohen. Simple mistake, could have happened to anyone.
This Sasha Cohen is the Winter Olympic Silver medalist figure skater and yoga guru.
30. Kristi Leskinen: Freestyle Skier
This is the part of the article where I have you stop what you are doing and pay close attention to the following information on Kristi Leskinen.
She is...uh, she...well, she won a bronze medal back in 2005 at the Winter X Games.
That is about the length of it. Someone should start a "We want more info" campaign for Kristi. I can not see why she would not want to offer anything more than what we already know.
Oh, she has green eyes...blue, no they are green.
29. Michelle Wie: Golf
Michelle Wie is nothing short of amazing in my book. Not only has she been playing golf since she was four years old but she also combined college by attending Stanford too.
She is golfing, going to class, putting, working on labs, putting some more, and doing homework. Back and forth until she graduates in March of 2012. No wonder she is single. She does not even have time to go to the bathroom let alone go see a movie with a dude.
28. Nicole Hage: Golf
From Auburn University to the Ladies PGA Tour, Nicole Hage has come a long way in only a short period of time.
Her golf game is vastly improving while she is also starting to gain notoriety as a beautiful female golfer. For example, she was featured in this article among the 43 others I have seen her in. If she keeps on trucking, she will soon be finding a man.
27. Laure Boulleau: Soccer
Is it just me or was the France Women's Soccer Team full of beautiful women? Do you remember when the USA played them in the semifinals? Half their team could have made this list had they been single.
Since Laure Boulleau is from France, she speaks French and almost all her interviews were never translated.
My point? I have no idea what she is saying, ever.
26. Allison Baver: Speed Skating
Do you want to watch pure awesomeness on ice? Then you should go check out some female speed skating.
This is a sport that makes rugby look like a cakewalk. Not only do the women wear the most provocative uniforms, skin tight and leave nothing to hide, but they skate at top speeds on a short track with super skates. It is the type of ice skating I can get on board with.
25. Amii Grove: Jermaine Pennant
Have you ever dated a crazy chick? Ok, trick question seeing as most of them are a little crazy. So I shall rephrase that question.
Have you ever been in a relationship with a woman that tried to sell the engagement you gave her and destroyed $200,000 worth of clothing you owned just to get back at you for cheating on her?
I guess Jermaine Pennant learned his lesson this time.
24. Lara Murphy: Jermaine Pennant
Then again, maybe not.
It has become apparent that Jermaine Pennant should figure out a way to keep his general in the station, if you get my drift.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Cheat on a woman, watch your back J.
23. Erika Prezerakou: Pole Vault
Erika Prezerakou was a Greek pole vaulter that never got her shot. She was injured before the 2008 Bejing Summer Olympics and never got a chance to fight for a Gold Medal.
She has, however, participated on the Greek version of Dancing with the Stars and won. So it might not be a gold medal but a win is a win in my books.
22. Sage Erickson: Surfing
Sage Erickson is as fresh as an orange in Florida. If you do not follow the world of surfing then this would be the first time you have heard of her. You're welcome.
She is in the process of qualifying for the ASP, Association of Surfing Professionals, World Tour where she is ranked second in the world so she is understandably busy.
Boyfriend or not, keep your eyes peeled for this California prodigy.
21. Almudena Cid: Rhythmic Gymnast
Every man has a fantasy they would like to live out before the end of his time. It could be a simple one involving costumes or it can be elaborate, involving public places. I tend to focus on the latter, anyways.
Here is one more to add to the list, a rhythmic gymnast. Almudena Cid is a prime example of how God wanted people without bones to maneuver. I still have no idea how she can get in the positions she does. It is something short of amazing my friends.
20. Ali Krieger: Soccer
In the words of Brian Wilson, "Ali Krieger is a hottie for the US Women's National Soccer Team...FACT!
She made headlines back in July when she penalty kicked her way past Brazil and into the semis to face France. She has lived in Germany for the past few years and has taught herself how to speak the language fluently.
I was taught how to speak French for three years and I still do not know how but she taught herself German? Am I the only one that finds that sexy?
19. Kaylyn Kyle: Soccer
Any person who attends the University of Saskatchewan, deserves a bump in the coolness scale. No offense to Canadians but the word Saskatchewan alone, is the greatest word I have ever heard.
Kaylyn Kyle not only went there but she made a name for herself on the soccer field and now plays for the Vancouver Whitecaps, another great name. Does she do this on purpose?
18. Karina Petroni: Surfing
Most women want to be successful in life. At what? That does not matter to them, as long as the success train makes a quick stop by them.
Karina Petroni has decided to take that idea and tack on even more success. She is not only one of the worlds best surfers, she is also a beautiful fashion model with a say no to drugs mentality.
If she is single, it has to be from her own choosing.
17. Laisa Andrioli: Soccer
If you want to play a game, here is a good one. Try and find a photo, besides this one, of Laisa Andrioli where she has clothes on. It is like the woman is allergic to clothing.
I have done more research than any man before me, just looking for a photo that combines Laisa and clothing. So far, nothing! Man, this is a tough job.
16. Rihanna: Matt Kemp's Ex
As far as I am concerned, she is single. There have multiple reports, none of which are too credible, that have stated Rihanna is in a relationship with a guy she has known for many years.
In other news, Matt Kemp is having the best season in his career this year. I wonder if it has something to do with the break-up? Maybe he should date more singers and then break it off just in time for next season.
15. Blair O'Neal: Golf
I never thought I would have to say this but if golf does not work out for Blair O'Neal, she can always fall back on Lingerie Football.
What? That is correct people. She paused her golfing career momentarily for a stint in the Lingerie Football League. She must have realized her true calling as she headed back to the greens very shortly after that.
Also, her average drive is 274 yards. My longest drive is 250 yards. I guess I should not have put that but she averages more than I can even hit. And that is why I am not playing golf professionally.
14. Maria Verchenova: Golf
Aside from the United States, Russia has got to be the number one country as far as beautiful female athletes go.
Example number one, Maria Verchenova.
“I always like to bring something extra special to the golf course, so if I’m wearing sexier, more stylish stuff like a shorter skirt or a nice tennis-style dress and people notice then great. ” - Maria Verchenova
This is the time to yell, "amen!"
13. Gina Carano: Mixed Martial Arts
Yes, Gina Carano finds herself in a bind when fighting in the mixed martial arts world. She is just too damn pretty to risk messing up that beautiful face. She should consider retiring and never fighting again.
Too late! It was announced that she could be making an Ali like appearance in the ring this December for a Strikeforce event.
I just hope her opponent keeps it away from the face.
12. Ana Ivanovic: Tennis
How is she still single? What is the reason behind all this madness?
I have been a huge fan of Ana Ivanovic for the past few years and I have yet to find a reason for her men troubles. Sure, she was with Novak Djokovic and Adam Scott, two names on completely opposites sides of the spectrem, but that did not last long and it definitely ended too soon.
You are also looking at one of the biggest sleepers of the 2011 US Open.
11. Anna Semenovich: Figure Skating
From the looks of this Russian babe, it might be hard to fully understand just how talented she truly is.
Anna Semenovich was once a bronze medalist at the 2000 World Figure Skating Championships but has since branched off to other endeavors. Yes, she does a little modeling, as you can see she was blessed from the lord above and has decided to share that lovely body with us, but she is also a singer.
I would give you the title of the song she made famous but being as I do not speak Russian it would be an epic fail to even try.
10. Allison Stokke: Pole Vault
Can we go back a few years? Do you recall the first time we came across the beautifully talented Allison Stokke?
It has been nearly four years since she burst onto the internet as the world's hottest unknown. In fact, she made it cool to be a beautiful unknown. Now, thanks to her help, thousands of men flock to track and field contests around the globe to find the next hidden bombshell.
As I grab my camera and head to the field, I would like to mention that it is not at all creepy.
9. Erica Hosseini: Surfing
Since spending the majority of my research time trying to figure out how to pronounce Erica Hosseini's last name, I missed a few details you might want to hear about.
When she is not ripping the waves, Erica spends her time selling waterproof watches, flip flops, surfboards, and sunglasses. So just keep buying her gear, then she is bound to notice you, maybe.
8. Darya Klishina: Long Jumper
Being beautiful is actually beneficial to Darya Klishina's sport. Her incredibly long legs, and trust me they are some long, improve her abilities to leap farther than the average joe.
She has been referred to as an athletic Barbie doll. For those that would agree, please raise your hands.
7. Jessica Biel: Derek Jeter's Ex
Derek Jeter will not have any problems rebounding from the break-up with Minka Kelly.
Does anyone recall this relationship? For me, it was the single greatest hook-up in my life because it justified using her in just about every post I conjured up.
This one is no different.
6. Jenn Sterger: Brett Favre Fiasco/Hardcore Football Fan
Poor Jen Sterger. She was once at the top of the world until a nude Brett Favre camera phone picture and some inappropriate voice mails he left her surfaced. Her stardom went from the top to the bottom very quickly and has spent 2011 trying to build it back up.
With a body like hers, it would be difficult to think she will not climb her way back to the top of the game. It is only a matter of time.
5. Hope Solo: Soccer
In 2011, two things were apparent.
1) U.S. Women's Soccer was full of babes
2) Hot women playing soccer is actually entertaining and fun to watch.
Hope Solo and her teammates made Americans, mostly men, follow a sport that was losing fans faster than a Charlie Sheen concert.
4. Sara Galimberti: Track and Field
My sources have confirmed that Sara Galimberti is indeed Italian. They also tell me she is a runner in the 800m and 1500m distance.
The funny thing about Italian woman that people tend to forget, they are absolutely nothing like the ones on Jersey Shore.
3. Sophie Horn: Golf
This is not your ordinary beautiful female golfer. Sophie Horn brings the wood too. She won the Under-21 Championship when she was just 15 years old. On top of that, she is a certified personal trainer, as evident in her pictures.
That makes her a model, golfer, trainer, and entertainer. She is a Jack of all trades. All she needs now is a man to share all those experiences with. In case she reads this, I am available until Tuesday.
2. Josefine Oqvist: Soccer
Thanks to the United States epic comeback victory over Brazil in the 2011 Fifa Women's World Cup, women's soccer has gained a whole new set of fans.
Josefine Oqvist is not your typical Swedish female soccer player. She is tall, skinny, blonde, and beautiful. Oh wait, that describes every women in Sweden. Seriously, I need to visit that place soon.
1. Jenn Brown: Sports Reporter
Ever since that whole Kenny Chesney fiasco back in August of 2010 where he was caught cheating on his girlfriend with Jenn Brown, it seems as though she has kept a low profile on her dating life.
But who can blame her? She has had a very busy 2011 and we still have 4 months to go. She even replaced the ESPN sideline guru, Erin Andrews, for this year's College World Series. Something tells me she will be replacing more people as time goes on.
