LAISA ANDRIOLI - SOCCER
Soccer isn't just a man's sport in Brazil. Brazilian women have proven they have the physical assets to win games, too.

The star made titillating headlines several years back when she posed nude in the Brazilian magazine SEXY. Clearly, the editors at SEXY know a sexy woman when they see her.
ALANA BLANCHARD - SURFER
Another hot surfer that makes surfing my new favorite sport. Alana Blanchard is an American surfer who gained fame while surfing on the ASP World Tour. She also models. Gee, she'd be great as a spokeswoman for suntan oil.
ALEX MORGAN - SOCCER, 2015 WORLD CUP CHAMPION
America, the beautiful. Alex Morgan is part of the amazing U.S. Women's National Soccer Team that just won the World Cup. To celebrate their huge win, they paraded down New York City's Canyon of Heroes (renamed the Canyon of Heroines for this parade) as confetti rained down on the 23 players, including stars Abby Wambach, Carli Lloyd, Hope Solo, Megan Rapinoe, Meghan Klingenberg, and, of course, Alex Morgan (featured here). They scored three times in the first 16 minutes of the team's incredible 5-2 win over Japan in Vancouver, British Columbia. Morgan must be very proud as we are for her and her team mates. Like the other players on the team, she is a joy to watch on the field - true beauty in motion.
MIRJAM JÄGER - FREESTYLE SKIER
This beauty loves showing off her form, whether it's skiing down a slope or modeling on a runway. And her form is always perfect. As a Swiss freestyle skier, and part-time model, Mirjam knows the importance of staying in shape. She knows everyone will be watching her every step she takes.
ANGELA RYPIEN - QUARTERBACK FOR LEGENDS FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Angela is a star quarterback in the Legends Football League. In case you haven't heard, the Legends Football League was originally known as the Lingerie Football League. Yes, that football league.

LOLO JONES - TRACK & FIELD / BOBSLED
She was that hot leggy stunner on Season 19 of Dancing With the Stars.

She was mesmerizing on the dance floor. But fancy footwork comes naturally to her. Jones is an American track and field champion, as well as competing professionally in bobsled.
HOPE SOLO - SOCCER (GOALIE), 2015 WORLD CUP CHAMPION
Way to go, Hope Solo. She was part of the winning U.S. soccer team at the recent World Cup final.

This beautiful 18-year old gymnast knows how to mesmerize her audience. She never fails to impress both the judges and the audience. And, like Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney is more than just a gifted gymnast, she has the stunning looks to propel her into celebrity super status. Although she was in the headlines for her "you've got to be kidding me" reaction at the 2012 Olympic games, we expect to see her in coming headlines as a future champion.

She's got my vote.

She can kink my butt and I think I'll love it. Known as the "Karate Hottie," Michelle Waterson is a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter of Thai descent and master in mixed martial arts. In Michelle's case, you could say MMA means she's got a talent for "Mesmerizing Male Americans."
SOPHIE HORN - GOLFER
A lot of gorgeous golfers are on this list and for good reason. All that swinging of golf clubs has given them incredible form. But Sophie Horn is more than just a professional golfer, she has put those stunning looks to good use off the course as a print and TV model.

Oh, she also won a silver medal for the 100 meter hurdles at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics. But her real fame came when she did that little dance.
ALLISON STOKKE - POLE VAULTER
She vaulted to the top of my list of Hottest Female Athletes. One look and you can see why. She is without a doubt, the hottest pole vaulter ever.

ANNA SIDOROVA - CURLER
Russians like to brag that they have some of the most beautiful women in the world. One look at Anna Sidorova and we tend to agree. She is, without a doubt, one of the hottest members of the Russian Women's Curling Team, which she took up after suffering a leg injury as a figure skater at 13. Thankfully, the injury doesn't appear to be permanent as her legs and, well, everything else look perfect. Who knew Curling was such a great way to keep in shape. For some strange reason, it is now the sport I most like to watch.
