Sports and beauty—they go together like peanut butter and honey.
And photographers and media outlets are well aware of that fact. From Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition and ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue to the many female athletes who have made modeling a lucrative endeavor—I'm looking at you, Anna Kournikova—sports have never shied away from the notion that sex sells.
But what about the athletes who haven't done much modeling? Who do we wish would step in front of the camera after they've stepped off the field?
On this list of 25 athletes who should have been models, we'll answer that very question. It's like having your peanut butter and your honeys.
And that, my friends, is a beautiful thing.
