The 30 Hottest Females in Sports for 2012

Sexiest Females of 2012


As the year is coming to an end, it’s time to assess the hottest female athletes from 2012.

With the 2012 London Olympics occurring this summer, the spectrum of women athletes was very large this year. During the Olympics, the whole world gets to see people from anywhere and everywhere.

Although the majority of athletes on this list hail from the United States, there are a few that were added from other countries. These are the women that stood out during the Olympic games and caught the eye of many Americans.

But not all of these athletes were competing in the Olympics. Of course you have to include the sports that are not in the Olympic games.

Golf and surfing seem to hold the reigns this year for hott females in non-Olympic sports. However, there are a couple of winter sports girls that made the cut too.

But when you think about it long and hard, the athletes of the winter sports will have their time to shine during the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

When it comes to female athletes, it doesn’t matter if they’re blonde or brunette; most people are more concerned if they have the hott body or the pretty face.

Many of the women on the top-30 have been featured modeling in magazines such as Sports Illustrated, Maxim or ESPN. However, their professional career is still playing sports.

This list can make you think twice when you associate female athletes with sports. There are more hott athletes out there than you’d think, especially when you take them out of their uniforms and put them in a modeling photoshoot.
