Men’s magazines contain pictures of women. Women’s magazines contain pictures of women as well, because the female form is something to be admired. Even though most female athletes dislike the way society seems to judge them based on appearance rather than skill, we have to admit that a hard working woman is a sight to behold. We should start off by saying that we aren’t looking to objectify the female athletes on our following list, as they’ve undoubtedly put much effort into competing at a professional level. All we are trying to do is to shed light on who the most attractive of them are, and hopefully earn them some fans in the process. So without further ado, here are the 10 sexiest female athletes in the world today.
Skylar is a female basketball player that made her professional debut with Getorade Indiana Girls before enrolling into Notre Dame University to play at a higher level. She also won the Big East player of the year award in 2012, and she has most steals in a single season than any other player in the history of women’s basketball. Skyler has been drafted third overall in 2013 by the TUlsa Shock in the WNBA.
Lindsey is an accomplished member of the United States Ski team, winning her first major trophy in 1999. It was because of her great start that she later got into the U.S. team at the 2002 Winter Olympics, a event in which she impressed once more. She then won the World Cup title three years in a row, and a gold medal in 2010. Lindsey is also considered one of the most attractive female athletes in the world, having done her fair share of TV commercials and endorsements.
This beautiful tennis player from India started playing tennis when she was just six years old. In 2003, Sania won the Wimbledon Championships Girls’ Doubles in a team with Alisa Kleybanova. In 2005, she was name WTA’s Newcomer of the year, an award which she built on thoroughly within the following years. Unfortunately, Sania was never able to break the top 30 barrier because of her many wrist injuries. Still, she remains one of the sexiest female athletes in the world, so it’s not all bad.
Not many people are familiar with female curling, thus many don’t yet know about this Russian beauty and her many achievements. Alexandra won a gold medal at the 2013 Winter Universiade in Italy, a testament of her skill and professionalism. She later got ninth place while representing Russia’s women curling team at the 2013 Sochi Olympics. You aren’t likely to find many info about her online, and this is because she enjoys a more private life than other athletes.
Apart from having one of the coolest names ever, Hope is also one of the best goalkeepers in women’s soccer. Hope made her professional debut in 2003 for the Philadelphia Charge and has been one of the most admired goalkeepers in the business, both for her looks and soccer skills. In 2008, she and the U.S. national team won a gold medal at the Summer Olympics, reaffirming her quality once more. Also, the fact that she looks like a supermodel doesn’t hurt.

Although they finished in 13th place, they used this as an opportunity to better themselves, and in 2012, the duo made it to the quarter finals on the Summer Olympics. These days, Marta plays with her new teammate, Victoria Orsi, and they seem to be doing well together. Marta is unfortunately better known for her physical characteristics rather than her voleyball skills, which isn’t exactly what she would like people to recognize her for.
This beautiful basketball player from Croatia started playing the game to follow into her older sister’s footsteps, an accomplished basketball player as well. Her first major achievement was winning the Croatian Cup in 2008, which later led to her winning a bronze medal with the Croatian national team at the 2009 Mediterranean Games.
