Nothing can stir up a more heated debate among personal trainers than discussing the hottest female athletes from all different sports.

You could just look at the covers of Sports Illustrated and make a list of every hot athlete from the past year or two.

But we decided to give our readers and clients the opportunity to vote. There were a few surprises on our list, and it’s important to say that this list doesn’t take athletic ability into account.

It’s all down to hotness.

Summary of the Key Findings

  • The list of top ten hottest female athletes has some household names, such as Simone Biles, Stephanie Gilmore, and Naomi Osaka.
  • The female athletes can be ranked in different ways. We used the hotness factor.
  • These girls come from all over the world, and compete in different sports, such as surfing, athletics, soccer, tennis, and more.

The Top Ten Hottest Female Athletes

1 - Stephanie Gilmore

  • Country: Australia
  • Sport: Surfing

Stephanie has made it to the top of our list of most beautiful women in sport. It seems like there are a lot of fans of professional Aussie surfers.

What’s amazing about her sporting achievements is that she started competing on a surfboard by age 17. Since 2005, she has won seven world championship gold medals.

As her career progressed, she got more involved in environmental action and became an outspoken advocate of protecting the Oceans.

She has also taken out time to help the next generation of surfers and mentor them through multiple initiatives.

She’s not just a hot sports star but also one who cares about those around her.a

2 - Naomi Osaka

  • Country: Japan
  • Sport: Tennis

Naomi was the first Asian tennis player to rank number 1 on the Women's Tennis Association official world ranking list.

That’s an amazing achievement for the 23-year-old tennis star, and it’s not just her on-court ability that has drawn attention.

She has an amazing athletic body, and her multi-racial background gives her an even more unique and appealing look.

As a Japanese-Haitian-American woman [1], she’s very outspoken about women’s rights and has made it her goal to be the best role model for young women across the world.

3 - Leticia Bufoni

  • Country: Brazil
  • Sport: Skateboarding

I’ve always been in awe of skateboarding, probably because I could never master the balancing, let alone doing crazy tricks in the air.

As a female athlete, Leticia took on a discipline that has always been dominated by men, but that certainly didn’t intimidate her.

She is a 6-time gold medal winner at the X Games and achieved that before she was 28 years old. With loads of tattoos and not being shy to show off some skin on social media, Leticia deserves to be on this list.

4 - Alica Schmidt

  • Country: Germany
  • Sport: Athletics

Alica is a hugely talented track and field athlete from Germany who joined the national team as a teenager in 2017, where she won her first under 20 4 x 400 m relay event at the European Athletics Championship.

That has set the stage for an amazing career ahead, as Alicia is only 22 years old.

On her Instagram and other social media feeds, she often shares not just images of training and competitive events.

Her fans are just as interested in her off-the-track images where she shows off her amazing body and looks.

5 - Allyson Felix

  • Country: USA
  • Sport: Athletics

Allyson started off her sprinting career by specializing in 200-meter events, but she later pivoted to 400 meters.

She also played a key role in the women’s 4 x 400 meters events as part of Team USA.

The Olympic gold medalist has won seven gold medals, along with many silver and bronze medals making her one of the most accomplished women in Olympic history.

Her strong athletic build seems to attract a lot of attention, but she’s not overly interested in the social media side of things. Instead, she’s launched her own footwear company called Saysh.

“I have learned that track doesn't define me. My faith defines me. I'm running because I have been blessed with a gift.” - Allyson Felix

6 - Simone Biles

  • Country: USA
  • Sport: Gymnastics

Simone Biles is an American gymnast from Texas, and at just 24 years old, she is one of the most accomplished gymnasts in U.S. history.

She has over 30 Olympic and World Championship medals to her name.

And because of her young age, we’re pretty certain to see her on the national team for many years to come.

As a gymnast, she’s in incredible physical shape, and she has featured on the front covers of many magazines, including Vogue.

7 - Lolo Jones

  • Country: USA
  • Sport: Athletics

Lolo is an exceptionally multi-talented athlete with one of the hottest bodies in sport at the moment.

The famous American hurdler has had a lot of Olympic and World Championship success over the years.

But what’s most surprising is that she had also competed in the Winter Olympics in 2014. It turns out that bobsledding requires some pretty fast legs, and this female athlete gave it a great shot.

She has since focused more on athletics and also has a very active social media profile where she has shown off a lot of her amazing physique.

8 - Alex Morgan

  • Country: USA
  • Sport: Soccer

Alex is one of the star players in the national women's soccer league. And for our British readers, yes, that’s football I’m talking about.

The 32-year-old Californian native has played in the USA and the UK and has had tremendous success in her international career both at the Olympic Games and FIFA world cup.

Alex was also co-captain of Team USA and has helped the USA to world cup glory. She’s also a very hot celebrity that makes many heads turn, especially at red-carpet events.

9 - Ivona Dadic

  • Country: Austria
  • Sport: Athletics

Ivona is one of the most attractive athletes from Austria, and her main event is heptathlon which is a very challenging sport to be involved in.

She also has one of the most ripped physiques in athletics and has no problem showing it off both on track and social media.

And the celebrity news regularly feature bikini shots of her where you get to fully appreciate how physically fit she is.

10 - Anastasia Ashley

  • Country: USA
  • Sport: Surfing

And finally, we get to Anastasia Ashley, possibly the hottest American professional surfer of all time. The 34-year-old Californian has been competing in professional events since 2003 and has shown no signs of slowing down.

And the sports media have also featured her a lot for her physical appearance.

In 2014, Anastasia Ashley appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition [2], and ever since, there seems to be no end to the extremely hot photoshoots she’s involved in.

You’ll find a lot of attractive photos on her Instagram feed, which to no surprise, feature a lot of swimsuits, beaches, and surfboards.
