20 Female Athletes Known More For Their Looks Than Their Game

The world of sports is full of many talented male and female athletes who do their best to excel at playing their particular sports. Sometimes victories might be few and far between, but that doesn't mean attention can't be gained by other means. There happen to be many beautiful women who have been fortunate enough to have gained more attention by being the subjects of photographers, than by being the stars on the field of play.

That doesn't mean that these ladies don't work their tails off in practice, or lack the grit to be competitive when the competition gets under their skin. It just means they happen to get a little extra attention even when things don't happen to go their way. Danica Patrick has made many male counterparts in auto racing jealous with all the attention she gets when she isn't driving a car, while Lolo Jones has no Olympic medals despite being highlighted by the media in the last two Olympic Games. Laisa Andrioli is fighting for a roster spot in soccer, while Michelle Waterson is fighting to gain a little recognition for being small, albeit one of the best at her sport. There are many women whose good looks happen to shower them with attention that they don't get by winning any titles or championships in the sports they happen to play. It is tough when beauty gets all the attention, while time and dedication happens to be spent trying to be legit.

The following 20 gorgeous athletes happen to get more attention from performing in front of a camera than winning any matches, tournaments or games. It is not their fault that they happen to be attractive and photogenic, but it certainly helps when their names don't appear on any leader boards or fill any roster spots. Their smoking hot looks go a long way towards hiding the fact that they don't necessarily have any worthwhile results.

Laisa Andrioli takes the top spot on this list primarily because of her ability to look extremely sexy in her photo shoots. Not only is her soccer career secondary to her modeling and amazing ability to exude sexual energy in photographs for all to see, but she is also a terrific ambassador for her sport. Andrioli is from the soccer crazed country of Brazil, a country whose legendary fanaticism with soccer is only topped by its reputation for being the home to many beautiful women. In Andrioli, there is a perfect match. Although she failed to make the 2015 Brazilian World Cup team, her efforts will never be in vain. She is easily the hottest soccer player to ever take the field, and doesn't need to score many goals to attract attention and make her presence felt in the sport.
