The 33 Hottest Female Athletes to Show Some Skin

In Your Dreams


Seeing as we are in the midst of the holiday season, a time of giving, I decided to give the readers of Rant Sports an early Christmas present.

If there is one thing that we can all agree on, for the most part, it’s that we really enjoy attractive women, especially if they are athletes. There’s a reason why Anna Kournikova was one of the most popular athletes in the world, and it wasn’t for her stellar on the court record. Although Kournikova was popular, she never shed her clothes for a photo shoot, which might be the saddest moment in hot athlete history. These 25 other women, however, had no problem stripping down for the world to see.

These 33 women decided to bare it all in a variety of ways. Some of these ladies decided to show some skin in certain "gentlemen's magazines," while others represented ESPN and Sports Illustrated well. No matter how they posed, I have to thank them for having the guts to go through with it. The eyes of men across the world certainly appreciate it.

Alright, seeing as you probably didn’t even waste time reading what I had to say to begin with, you can start clicking now.

Here are the 33 hottest female athletes that have shown some skin.

Zvonareva, who is a tennis player, said she wasn't nervous about her ESPN photo shoot, saying she is comfortable with her body. Well, Vera, I am glad you were comfortable with your body.

The fact that Ronda Rousey admitted she likes to have a lot of whoopee before fighting makes her so darn attractive, even if she could kick my butt.

I cannot decide if I find Hope Solo really, really hot or really, really scary. It might be a little of both, actually.

Props to the commentor below, and boo Google image search. Originally, I thought this was Lolo Jones. I guess Taurasi can take that as a compliment.
