You expect athletes to be strong and fit; that’s part of their job, after all. What you don’t expect them to be is hot.
And yet, if you look at the women on this list, you cannot help but wonder why aren’t they in the movies? Or on the catwalk?
And if you do happen to watch them in a sports competition, you risk not even noticing what they did there since your eyes will be drawn to their incredible bodies.
10 Laure Boulleau
Women’s soccer is becoming increasingly popular, but you wouldn’t expect it to attract such hotties as Laure Boulleau.
This diminutive 5ft tall French athlete is one of the Paris Saint Germain soccer team stars, and this is one of the best clubs in France. She even made it to the national team, so you can bet she’s not only gorgeous but also good!
Laure Boulleau also does a bit of modeling in her spare time, and you’ve probably seen her in photoshoots for Dior or Nike.
9 Ellen Hoog
Just look at those eyes! And that face! Ellen Hoog is such a sweet young woman, but don’t let those delicate features fool you. She’s tough, tough enough to play hockey.
Ellen Hoog is a member of the Netherlands’ national hockey team, which won the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics. If she gets tired of sports, she can certainly look forward to a modeling career.
8 Silje Norendal
Just wow! Silje Norendal is Norwegian, which is not hard to guess at all. It’s pretty obvious as she’s your typical Nordic beauty with those finely-chiseled features and piercing blue eyes.
Silje Norendal is a snowboarder, and she’s won more than one gold medal in international competitions so far.
There’s only one problem with her; you won’t get a chance to see much of her body underneath the heavy costume. Such a shame!
7 Eugenie Bouchard
If you haven’t been paying much attention to tennis tournaments, Eugenie Bouchard has enough charisma to keep your eyes glued to your TV screen when she’s playing.
Sure, those sexy tennis outfits help a lot, but Eugenie is seriously hot. Those superbly toned legs should be trotting on the catwalk.
And then, there’s that winning smile of hers. Since she’s among the best tennis players in the world, she has plenty of reasons to smile!
