50 Hottest Female Olympians Ever

Hot Olympic Girls

Women's participation in the Olympic games finally reached a very fair and respectable state last summer, when every nation that took part fielded a female athlete. There was no longer a sport that didn't include a Women's category, and Women's boxing was for the first time ever introduced.

With the increase in numbers, comes an increase in talent and also, inevitably an increase in good lookers. Having said that, I'm sure this will cause all sorts of discussion. There are several debatable inclusions, especially the first bunch, and positioning will of course come down to a matter of opinion.

Admittedly, there are also some sports that get great exposure from their good looking women. Just look at the attendance and sold out fixtures in London for the beach volleyball.

Hopefully, you will learn from this not only some new exotic names, but also some exotic figures and some handy sporting knowledge that will stand you in good stead for any quizzes and you can show it off to all your friends..

Under each image, I have posted a brief background to their Olympic history, which I know is what you are all here for..

Feel free to rant at me on the comments below if I missed your dream girl off, I haven't studied every sport in Olympic history, sadly. You will notice that there is also few Olympians on here from before the 2000s, that quite simply because they seemed to get more attractive as time went on, although, some I came across from the modern era also looked even worse!

Here are the Top 50, yes FIFTY, Hottest Female Olympians of All Time.

1 - Alex Morgan

alex morgan

Yes. Get your Google images search ready.The upcoming face of not just Women's USA Soccer but also World Soccer. She scored the historic winner vs Canada in the London 2012 Semi-finals, and went onto to win Gold. Having been voted the 3rd best Female Soccer player of 2012 in the FIFA Ballon d'Or the future is bright. Keep your eye on her.

Around the Web

  • disqus_Jq6k7P5HGA

    all have great bodies and tires for faces

  • kelly

    you use a photo of the Aussie hurdler on the home page, yet she has never competed in “The Olympics”.

  • Jonathan Chiles

    Wow!!! Just two Black athletes among the Top 50!!! Can you say, “Racist!” How about Carmelita Jeter, at the very least! This list is a fraud!

    • Matt Extreme

      Yo, I’m pretty sure this is one man’s opinion and as we all know, opinions vary. So, how about you shut the hell up. It’s my opinion that Carmelita Jeter looks like a man and you thinking she is one of the top 50 hottest ladies in the Olympics could mean that you’re gay. So you should probably get to putting the top 50 hottest men in the Olympics slide show together and stop race baiting.

      • bearmon2010

        Please stop! Have a respect!!! You are really a jerk. GROW UP!

    • Richard Basey

      Hey pal…why is it that every Black man wants a white woman for a girl friend? They are the best!

      • Blend Da Beatmaker

        Just like every white hoe wants the black mandingo

    • MBlack

      You like only black ladies? That’s pretty racist.

  • jrob23

    worst list ever. You have to try hard to get this so wrong. Congrats. Where are all the ladies of color i.e. black, asian, hispanic? WTF!!!

    • Thomas B Quill

      I seen 1 on there. 1 is more than enough.

      • Brent Smith

        Fucking racist.

    • Joey

      dude, white is beautiful. Just deal with it.

    • Richard Basey

      Oh like Venus? If you like a woman on testosterone…I think they should do a “check” to see if she is not actually a man. No wonder she wins so often.

    • Rusty Schack

      Hope Solo is white trash….does that count towards diversity?


    We should create a list that recognizes women athletes based on attributes that makes sense, like their scores, achievements, professionalism, contribution to the community.

  • li xiao sun

    bad list. don’t need blurbs (some of which don’t even tell what event the athlete competed in!) all we need is a good photo, name, Olympic(s) participated in, event, medals if any. Some of these photos are just…they ain’t hot to say the least.

  • demonopie

    Apparently there are NO attractive asians an only 2 black women. Poor research.

  • Majik53

    #27 – Nastia Liukin.. I don’t think she’s nasty lookin’…..

    • jwbaumann

      The blurb says Nastia “won a massive 5 gold medals during Beijing 2008, made up of a Gold, 3 Silvers and Bronze.” Methinks the editing sucks a little.

      • Majik53

        Good call!

    • zzmmmike

      Nastia Liukin has no business whatsoever being on this list, let alone as high as she is on the list. You can rent her forehead out as a billboard.

  • AnonTheMouse

    I have to disagree with the list compilers’ taste in women. I found very few of these women to be even better than average in appearance, and there seems to be a bias towards Caucasians.

  • miserableoldfart

    Bias toward the recent as well. The elegantly beautiful Peggy Fleming most certainly belongs on this list.

  • pandamonium000

    where is carly patterson?!

  • dickkumzinya

    The fact that Katarina Witt is not on this list makes it one of the worst lists ever. Or how about Gabriella Sabatini? She was in the Olympics.

    Terrible job.

    • MBlack

      ^ This. Yeah the list is pretty much FAIL.

  • Merkin Muffly

    Where are the curvacious women? Alenka Bikar, just the most wonderful ass ever in Olympic sports:

  • ThomasWMutherJr

    Jaqueline Carvalho was most definitely not a gold medal winner in BEACH volleyball.

  • Galileo DeLira

    For all the people bitching, you are more than welcome to compile your own list & publish it. Otherwise, cry some more then go change your tampons.

  • Slash33

    Fail! Katarina Witt should be #1

  • bb91103

    Lolo should be higher.

  • Dirk Hardpec

    What about Suzy Favor Hamilton. Athlete turned high priced escort.

  • Gary Frazier

    I haven’t seen Flo Jo nor Serena Williams… Who the hell chose this shit list?

    • captainbuck

      There’s not enough votes to make your comment high enough man, yes, FloJo,and Williams sisters… I know Mary Lou Retton was cuter than sexy, so that’s out, but FLO JO.

    • zzmmmike


  • Bluezboy8

    Was this list compiled by a frat house? ADD-driven fanboys sure make lousy judges of what is hot. btw, Julia Mancuso is a downhill skier, not snowboarder. Get back to your homework, boys. Let men with a few more hairs down theres do these kind of lists.

  • Lance

    yea and the one they did find doesnt even really look good they just had to put at least one

  • David Daquin

    Mostly good looking women but a pretty random selection. Who did the voting? What was the general criteria? None of my favorites were included, mostly ice skaters and gymnasts.

  • Maxbps8

    Uhhh, that’s not Heather Mitts.

  • doszap

    Alex Morgan is definitely in the top 5,wait till she gets another 2-3yrs on her.

  • captainbuck

    Whjoah!!!! Hey, Flo Jo, Florence Griffith Joyner!!!!

  • Russ

    no Lindsay Vonn and a distinct lack of Asian and colored women.

  • bearmon2010

    So what! There are the honest male Olympic Athletes ever too. What a hypocrite!

  • AzHardHat

    Katerina Witt should have been #1 — No contest.
    Instead, Katerina doesn’t even make the list of the top 50? And some girl who was never even in the Olympics is named #3? What a dumb author! What a dumb article! I feel dumber just for having read it!

  • MacLusitanisen

    Darya Klishina #1

    Romy Tarangul #2

    Michelle Jenneke #3

  • Seymore yo

    What a lame unflattering pic of Michelle Jenneke. Look at her warm up vid for the hurdles.


    If your going to put Olympic soccer players in there, Mia Hamm is far and away the most attractive…

  • FunkyWinkerbean

    more like hottest androgens, if that’s your thing. half are fugly. the slavic women are the best, closest to real women IMHO. that brazilian Carvalho ain’t too shabby. a few others. the list could have been halved. who the hell is Stephanie Rice and why does she get two entries?

  • rightmostofthetime

    The writer and I don’t share the same taste in women. Jennie Finch way down the list? Mia Hamm not included? Do you have beer goggles on, Stowe?

  • FishingWithFredo

    Very noticeably missing from this list: Gorgeous Chinese diver Guo Jingjing — who also is a multiple gold medal winner.

  • Jeremy Krueger

    Lyndsey Vonn??? hello that girl should be a model!!

  • Anakin

    There were 3 blacks on there lol

  • Rusty Schack

    Where is Tonya Harding?

  • 77silvrfox

    WOW- somewhat disappointing for sure. i agree, without Ms Katarina the list is not complete. racially biased, perhaps, but that’s the least of the problems with this list

  • MichaelFarese

    I think the fact that you don’t even mention the sport for some of them makes this whole list that much more sexist than it needed to be.

  • Frank Sevek

    Dumb list if I must say. Not one Asian out of 50 and there have been many who should be there.

  • CodeStud3

    Zimbio has a similar list. They got to the end and realized it was mostly skinny blonde chicks. Then they found Shani Davis

  • Adam Temple

    white women are far more beautiful. deal with it

  • MuphDyver

    I think that Cătălina Ponor, the gymnast from Romania, should be on this list.

  • Doug Hall
