The 50 Hottest Female Olympians
50 Hottest Female Olympians Ever
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.
