50 Hottest Sex Symbols in Sports
What do Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Farrah Fawcett, Pamela Anderson, Angelina Jolie, and Megan Fox have in common?
They are all sex symbols.
But what about sports? There has to be many women in sports today that have enough sex appeal to be considered sex symbols, right?
Not only are there many but I found 50 of those women and put them together for everyone out there to enjoy. Here is the 50 Hottest Sex Symbols in Sports Right Now.
50. Blair O'Neal: Golf
Donald Trump said it best, "It's Trump."
Ok, so maybe he was talking about himself and not at all about Blair O'Neal, his co-host on the show Donald Trump's Fabulous World of Golf.
If I were him I would have spent less time talking and more time admiring the beautiful blonde standing two feet away from him.
49. Julia Mancuso: Skiing
Am I really the only person left that still loves this chick?
It seems that only yesterday she was stealing all our hearts at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver winning two silver medals. Her smile made her an instant fan favorite on the Internet.
Oh, those lingerie poses did not hurt either.
48. Lolo Jones: Track and Field
Do me a favor. Grab your fastest tennis shoes, go outside, and try to run 60 meters in under eight seconds. Go ahead, try it out, I will wait.
Now go back out there and add a few hurdles that stand 2 and a half feet high and try and do that under eight seconds.
That should give you a good idea of how good Lolo Jones is at her sport. She does this on a regular basis and she is one of the fastest in the world at it. Her looks are a bonus for us.
47. Christa Alves: Surfing
Before Christa Alves there was Karina Petroni. Karina went around the world thinking she was the best East coast surfer in the United States.
Not so fast!
Christa Alves hails from the great state of Florida and is a young beautiful surfer about to make her move into the ASP rankings.
46. Caroline Wozniacki: Tennis
Life is good right now for Rory McIlroy. He just destroyed every player, record, and ball at the 2011 US Open. How do you follow his performance at the US Open? By going to Disneyworld, right?
Wrong. He decided its best to take a month off, enjoy his victory, and officially announce that he was dating the beautiful Danish tennis star, Caroline Wozniacki.
With her five victories on the year, and number one world ranking, she is not having that bad of a year herself.
45. Carling Coffing: Golf
How do you win the Golf Channel's highly rated reality show Big Break? Ask Carling Coffing because she has already done so last year.
If you were thinking she was just another beautiful woman with below-par skills, think again. She has worked her way up the money chart but needs to push a little further to make the LPGA Tour, her dream since she was a little girl.
44. Michelle Waterson: MMA
Does Michelle Waterson look like a person that could knock someone out? If not, do not underestimate her, she has done it three times in her professional fighting career.
So the next time you are at a bar and decide to hit on the babe sitting alone, better hope it is not "The Karate Hottie", if you make her angry who knows what she could do.
43. Biba Golic: Table Tennis
Table Tennis? Really?
Yes, table tennis is the sport known around the globe for having the most smoking hotties of any other sport. Well, no not really but they do have Biba Golic.
Biba played her college ball at Texas Wesleyan Univeristy, which is not the Texas Western college you remember from the movie Glory Road. But it is close.
42. Beatriz Recari: Golf
If there was ever a female golfer you could consider a shark, it is Beatriz Recari.
A shark? Really? Let me explain.
She has been sitting and waiting around, ready to make her move to the top. She has been living near the center of the pack but has the skill level to propel her to an elite status. So she just sits and waits, floating around like a shark, about to attack her prey.
She is a pretty shark too.
41. Erica Hosseini: Surfing
There are plenty of female surfers in the world today but only one of them can claim to be a professional stunt woman for the television show Beverly Hills 90210.
Erica Hosseini, professional stunt woman, actress, model, and surfer, is currently ranked #33 in the ASP Women's World Rankings and has more sponsors than Dale Earnhardt Jr. She has a beautiful smile, killer wit, and a fun loving SoCal personality.
40. Ashley Judd: WAG
There have been quite a few names that have made lists of hot women in sports but only a couple of them continue to make them, time and time again. One of those names is Ashely Judd.
She brings her passion and voice to every game she attends at the University of Kentucky. She has had several run-ins with rival fans, however, she probably ended up winning those arguments every time.
39. Ali Krieger: Soccer
A loss to Japan in the semifinals of the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup could have been the straw that broke the camel's back but not for Team USA and Ali Krieger.
She returned to Germany, where she plays professionally for the FFC Frankfurt soccer club, with an even bigger fan club and more knowledge of the game she loves so much it sent her overseas.
Did I mention she speaks self taught fluent German?
38. Hannah Cornett: Triathlete
Hannah Cornett is not your average triathlete. She is literally a multi-talented sports guru. Her resume includes triathlons, pro-mountain biking, pro surfing, modeling, and acting.
It is nice to see some women can do almost everything and still have time to look beautiful.
37. Almudena Cid: Rhythmic Gymnasts
How is Almudena Cid a sex symbol? What does she bring to the table that all the others have not already?
Well, for starters, she can bend both her legs behind her ears. And who said rhythmic gymnastics was boring?
36. Gabrielle Union: WAG
Gabrielle Union has come a long way since Bring it On. It seems like only yesterday we can remember seeing her bringing it and now we get to watch her grace the courtside of her man, Dwayne Wade's Heat games.
Her sex appeal has followed her career and it does not stop there. She earned her way onto this list after years of consistently being among the hottest WAGs in sports. She has kept standing behind her man and his crazy ex-wife, sensational preseason free agent signings, and everything that comes with being a Miami Heat superstar.
35. Anna Rawson: Golf
Golf has come a long way since Arnold Palmer and Jack Nickalus. The women have become more prominent than ever in a sport that was once dominated by men.
Anna Rawson is one of those women. Her golf game is nowhere near the level of the above mentioned but her beauty elevates her overall quality in the female golfing world. She brings in the fans when she plays.
Those long legs of hers can easily be the reason why she garners so much attention.
34. Kim Kardashian: WAG
Kim Kardashian should have a show titled, "She does it again."
Every year something happens in the life of Kim that would make most of us crawl up into a box and ignore the rest of the world but not her. She just keeps pushing forward.
33. Allison Stokke: Pole Vault
Many female athletes have gone from nobody to somebody overnight but Allison Stokke is the only one to do it for five straight years.
She has done plenty of impressive things in the world of pole vaulting, and we are all glad she chose that sport, but it was back in 2007 when a random stranger caught the beautiful Stokke on camera just standing around that she can thank for the fame.
If her career is finished in sports, she will always have a job as a model. And that is not too shabby.
32. Erin Andrews: Reporter
Erin Andrews, or EA as she is known in the ESPN world, continued right where Jill Arrington left off. She made beautiful women working the sidelines of major sporting events the new thing to do. She has even become a staple in the NCAA College Football video games each year.
For the ones of us wondering about this photo, no it is not EA's twin but that is her sister and that means there are two beauties in the Andrews family in this world. I am a fan of those odds.
31. Maria Kirilenko: Tennis
What is it about Russian tennis players that drives all of us crazy?
Maria Kirilenko is the world's eighth ranked female tennis pro and an upgraded version of Anna Kournikova because she wins.
30. Kim Glass: Volleyball
Female volleyball are not suppose to be hot. That would be the biggest lie I have ever told besides Madonna being a good pair with A-Rod.
Kim Glass is another fine example of sexy volleyball stars. The Olympic silver medalist in 2008 should be back on our television sets in 2012 for the London Summer games. Time needs to speed up.
29. Heather Mitts: Soccer
Heather Mitts joins a long list of University of Florida Alumni to make this list. She has been around the game of soccer since she was eight years old.
She is now living the life. She married NFL quarterback AJ Feeley in February of 2010 and recently participated on Team USA during the FIFA Women's World Cup. She did not get any playing time during her time in Germany but she was definitely noticed on the sidelines
28. Stephanie Rice: Swimming
With the dominance of Michael Phelps in the past two Olympic games, there was not a lot of attention paid to Stephanie Rice and her beautifully long body.
She managed to grab three gold medals and did it without anyone taking notice. She is as dominant as the come in the aqua center but she is also the sexiest female swimmer in the world. Holding both of those titles is something she should be proud of. I know I would be.
27. Danica Patrick: Racing
Why do so many people hate Danica Patrick? When did she become the super villain in sports?
I am a big fan of hers. I have been since she showed up on the racing scene a few years back. She is playing in a sport dominated by men. In fact, she is the first woman to race in Nascar. She might not be the Jackie Robinson of racing but she is still a great athlete and sex symbol for a sport that has none.
26. Natalie Gulbis: Golf
Sophie Horn might have taken being sexy and playing golf to a whole new level but none of that would have been possible had it not been for Natalie Gulbis.
She not only brought sexy to golf, she brought it to us, the fans. She made us want to watch the sport.
25. Anastasia Ashley: Surfing
Are you one of the many fans that hopes to one day see Anastasia Ashley in Playboy? The wait is over.
In July of this year, she was featured in Playboy. However, she was not at all nude, it was still fun to Google her and hope.
24. Marikym Hervieux: WAG
Russell Martin is a professional baseball player.
Marikym Hervieux is a professional model and all around sex symbol.
How do you date women like this? Simple, play professional baseball.
23. Jennifer Walcott: WAG
It is hard to pinpoint the original WAG of the NFL. Jennifer Walcott might not be the first be she is one of the originals that I can recall.
She made being a Playboy model and NFL WAG normal. It is hard to find anything about WAGs and the NFL that does not at least mention this beauty.
22. Claudine Palmer: WAG
How does a former Miss Ireland become one of the hottest female sex symbols in sports?
Anytime a women marries a professional soccer player and it sticks, she deserves a shot at the title. They have been together for 12 years. In the soccer years, that is more like 45.
21. Carmella DeCesare: WAG
Who shot JFK? Could ancient Egyptians really build the pyramids? Is God real? How did Jeff Garcia land such a stone cold fox?
Those are questions that will forever be written in the history books. Our kids' kids will read about this things and wonder how.
It is not that we do not like Jeff Garcia, because we all think he is a swell guy, but even he must wonder how he concurred this climb.
20. Lindsay Davis: WAG
If you do not follow the NBA then chances are you have no idea who Omer Asik is until now. Omer is the Turkish big man backup for the Chicago Bulls. He is a big contributor for a team on the rise so why not date a hottie like Lindsay Davis?
Lindsay is a former everything and future All Around Beauty. If there is a contest for perfection, she would be at the top every time.
19. Tanya Robinson: WAG
Steven Taylor, Newcastle United defender, is one lucky man. He has been playing professional soccer since he was only 15 years old and now, at 25, he has landed one of the sexiest women alive.
Tanya Robinson is no stranger to being called sexy. She has made FHM's list of 100 Sexiest Women in the World about a 100 times.
18. Partridge Twins: Surfing
How many sets of twins have you seen surfing?
Ok, here is an even better question, how many sets of beautiful twins of you ever met?
The odds of two beautiful women that look exactly alike being good at surfing are so astronomical that instead of trying to calculate it, I will just take a stab at it myself. The odds are 1,231 to one.
That might not be high enough, right?
17. Anna Kournikova: Tennis
This list is about the 50 Hottest Sex Symbols in Sports Right Now so, naturally, we need to include Anna Kournikova.
She has not been too competitive in tennis for quite some time but she somehow manages to keep popping up all over the sporting world.
She is a regular at Miami Heat games and even has a Texas Hold em phrase named after her. The "Anna Kournikova" is when you get an Ace-King unsuited. Why? According to Vince van Patton, "Because it looks great but never wins."
16. Emily O'Hara: WAG
This is an example of what clothing on Emily O'Hara looks like. It might not be much but it is more than most of her other photos.
She has a tendency to remove the clothing and be free like a butterfly. Complaints? No, not from any of us.
15. Danielle Lloyd: WAG
Danielle Lloyd is the WAG of all WAGs when it comes to soccer. She has been with enough professional soccer stars to understand how to deal with the media. She is also a model and former reality television star when she starred on UK's version of Big Brother.
She is now settled down with Jamie O'Hara and just recently gave birth to their second child back in July. Her beauty has been featured in many sports lists and her sex appeal reminds me that she should now be included in the hottest MILF lists.
14. Hope Solo: Soccer
What do you think of when you hear the name Hope Solo?
Do you think of US Women's Soccer? Hope? Or just the pure awesomeness that surrounds a name like that.
Hope Solo is not only the greatest goalkeeper in the world, she also has the best name in modern sports history. You can say what you want but her name is perfect for any athlete.
13. Leyrn Franco: Javelin
What does a javelin thrower from Paraguay do when it is not an Olympic year?
Well, for starters, she finds time modeling and entering beauty pageants. She was the runner-up for Miss Universo Paraguay in 2006 and also participated in the Miss Bikini Universe pageant.
If that is not good enough, she makes her own calendar every year that is a sexier than any one I have seen before.
12. Ana Ivanovic: Tennis
Aside from her beauty, there are several reasons to love Ana Ivanovic.
1) She use to practice tennis in between NATO bombing raids in Belgrade in 1999.
2) Monica Seles is the reason she is a professional tennis player
3) She once had a serve clock in at 124.9mph, which is the fifth fastest of all time.
4) Her biggest superstition is avoiding all the lines on the court.
How can you not love this girl?
11. Alana Blanchard: Surfing
Alana Blanchard, or Lana as her friends call her, is more than just a pretty and talented female surfer. She is a hero to some people, one of whom you might have heard of Bethany Hamilton.
In 2003, Bethany Hamilton had her left arm ripped off by a tiger shark. Lana, her brother, and father were there and did all they could to help Bethany get away from the shark, back to shore, and to the hospital.
If not for the Blanchard family, who knows what could have happened that day on Tunnels Beach, Kauai.
10. Adriana Lima: WAG
Victoria's Secret recently unveiled a new bra called the Showstopper. Its purpose is to hide the fact that you are wearing a bra. It is suppose to be invisible to the naked eye.
And you would have known this too had you not watched the commercial first. How can any man explain what these bra's are suppose to do when the commercials are filled with Adriana Lima and friends dancing around in lingerie?
9. Jenn Brown: Reporter
What was once Erin Andrews walking the sidelines is now Jenn Brown.
She has replaced EA on several different fronts but most importantly because she is better to look at on weekends.
8. Gina Carano: MMA
A sex symbol should be a person that symbolizes sex appeal. Gina Carano not only symbolizes sex appeal, she has transformed a sport using it.
The UFC has been popular for many years but it was not until the world was introduced to Gina Carano that we became interested in female's fighting in mixed martial arts. Now, we love to watch women kick the crap out of each other.
7. Alex Morgan: Soccer
Team USA soccer had a fantastic 2011. Even though most fans would say it was a disappointing year, finishing second place in the world for the FIFA Women's World Cup is not bad at all.
It also gave us Alex Morgan. She had been floating around for quite some time. I even featured her in a few of my own articles in the past. It was not until she had a few clutch goals, including one against Japan in the finals, that we all began to take notice.
Besides the world already knowing our women can play some soccer, they now know we bring the sex appeal every where we go.
6. Irina Shayk: WAG
How could I not include the always beautiful Irina Shayk? She is the first woman to control Real Madrid star and international soccer phenom Cristiano Ronaldo.
Before Ms Shayk, Ronaldo was in the media flaunting another trophy, actual and metaphorical, every other week. Now I am not saying she has stopped his bachelor hood but she has taken him down a level or two.
That right there is enough to propel this goddess to the top of the charts.She is so sexy, even Ronaldo listens to her.
5. Abigail Clancy: WAG
Until June 30th, 2011, Abigail Clancy's wedding date, when I was still hoping there was a chance she would dump Peter Crouch.
No offence to him, he might be a nice guy even though he did cheat on her once already. But she deserves a man who does not play soccer, writes about sports hotties, and was once voted "Best UNO player in the New Orleans area, 2001".
4. Gisele: WAG
Tom Brady is living the life every man wants to live. He gets women, cars, money, and Super Bowl victories. His wife, now she is a different story.
Gisele Bundchen is the type of woman every female wants to aspire to become and every man, well, you already know where that is going. Her sex appeal is at the peak of its' existence and is showing no signs of slowing down.
3. Sophie Horn: Golf
If you were to take all the female golfers in the world and ask them who they thought was the most beautiful among all of them, I bet all the money in my pockets they would say Sophie Horn.
Sophie Horn went from a really good female golfer to an international sex symbol almost overnight. Not only is she good at golf but she is also a certified trainer and it shows.
How many women do you know can claim to be a model, trainer, and professional golfer?
2. Darya Klishina: Long Jump
Say it with me, Darya Klishina. Remember this name folks, it will be around for the next few years.
She might not be at the height of her game just yet but something tells me that the Summer Olympics in 2012 will expose this beauty to the rest of the world and then voila. She will be made in the shade.
If this is your first time meeting Darya, you are welcome from Russia.
1. Maria Sharapova: Tennis
Beautiful women are not easy to find in sports. They are only a few that have continued to be excellent at their sport while also finding the time to play beauty queen.
Maria Sharapova has done this time and time again. She is the icon of beautiful female tennis players and sports in general and deserves to be in the top spot.
