15 Female Athletes Who Have Mastered Instagram

The world of sports is filled with sultry beauties. Over the past decade in sports, more and more women have been recognized for their athletic accomplishments, rather than just being viewed as eye candy.

Some of these female athletes aren’t too fond of being sexualized. Others don’t have a problem with it and seem to embrace the extra attention. They play to their tag of being a sultry female athlete, not just when they’re in action, but in their private lives too. Due to the power of social media, athletes are able to share snippets of their private lives, express themselves through pics on Instagram, and on occasions some athletes post pics that are really saucy. A lot of these athletes are known for posting sultry pics, hence they’ve acquired pretty substantial fan followings.

Some athletes are super-talented, but they still want to keep fans updated with the goings on in their lives. These athletes are also prone to posting hot pics on their social media channels, much to our delight. These are 15 hot female athletes who have given us too much to handle on Instagram.

15 Michelle Jenneke

My favourite time of year ☀️😊 #summer

A post shared by Michelle Jenneke (@mjenneke93) on

When it comes to Olympic track and field athletes, very few are hotter than Michelle Jenneke. The Australian hurdler is a real stunner, and unsurprisingly captures everyone’s attention when she’s on the track. Her cute little pre-warmup dance has made her famous the world over, and she’s not bad when it comes to hurdling either. But Michelle steals the show because she’s hot – there’s no two ways about it. It’s therefore no surprise that she balances her athletics with modeling. She’s one steamy model, and delights fans by regularly posting a whole load of her sultry modeling pics on Instagram. Look at her Instagram and you’d think that a pro photographer follows her around 24/7. What an athlete, what a woman, and thank God for Instagram.

14 Paige Spiranac

It truly is a mystery why a lot of people are against women’s golf. The vast majority of those who feel that way are old fuddy-duddies who are stuck in their ways. But we love female golf, not just because of the golfing prowess of the competitors, but because there are some really beautiful female golfers on the world tour. None are more stunning than 24-year-old, Paige Spiranac. Paige achieved fame and popularity, not only because of her golfing skills, but because of her drop-dead gorgeous physique, and the fact she’s prone to showing it off by dressing provocatively.

She doesn’t just do so on tour either. Paige is golf’s resident hottie, a glamor puss, and she lets the world know it by regularly posting sizzling pics on Instagram. Some of her pics are just ridiculous; see them and you’d think you were looking at pics belonging to a glamor model, not a pro golfer. I suppose Paige can be classified as being both. See her sizzling pics and you’d be hard-pressed to disagree.

13 Paige VanZant

Tell me a secret.... 🌹

A post shared by Paige VanZant (@paigevanzantufc) on

Time to turn the Paige to another stunner.

You don’t really associate female MMA fighters with being glamorous. They’re fighters, and if they were beautiful to begin with, getting pummelled in the octagon for a living would soon change that. But there are actually some real hotties on the MMA scene, none more so than Paige VanZant. She’s a pocket dynamo at the age of 23, has established herself as a firm fan favorite in MMA, and has become something of a TV personality too, having made numerous TV appearances.

It’s no surprise that she’s that popular. Paige is absolutely gorgeous, and if you didn’t know it, you will when you ogle at her Instagram page. Some of her pics are just ridiculous, and make you understand why she’s rated as being one of the hottest athletes around.

12 Lindsey Vonn

Considering skiing isn’t really a mainstream sport, Lindsey Vonn must be someone pretty special to have gained she popularity she has over the years. That indeed she is – she’s certainly a special woman, a special athlete. We know about her success, the company she keeps, and that’s because people want to know. When she takes off her skiing gear, her beauty’s unveiled, and she’s shown it off no end over the years. Lindsey really has partaken in some stunning photoshoots. But due to the beauty of Instagram, we don’t have to wait around for such images to get published in magazines. We get to feast our eyes on Lindsey all the time, whenever she posts new sultry pics, which for Lindsey, is pretty regularly. Some of her pics are just ridiculous, too much for us to handle. Even so, bring them on.

11 Amanda Latona

Bodybuilding isn’t really a sport which you’d associate with the world's most beautfiul athletes. Sure, the athletes show a lot of skin – they have to as it’s part of the sport, to showcase their bodies – but the female athletes tend to have more muscle than some guys find attractive. Having said that, there are now new competitions in the fitness world, such as Figure and Bikini comps. So, there are plenty of steamy athletes around that step on stage, and Amanda Latona has got to be among the hottest. She’s not famous for stepping on stage though. She’s achieved fame because of her modeling credentials.

She’s modeled for a lot of top fitness publications. Her Instagram is like a modeling portfolio. There are tons of steamy pics on her Instagram page, pics showing off her steamy, muscular physique in all its glory.

10 Allison Stokke


A post shared by Allison Stokke (@allisonstokke) on

When Allison burst onto the scene those many years ago, she hated the fact that she was being sexualized. She found the idea that some people were tuning in to ogle at her and not witness her athletic prowess hard to deal with. She’s still not too fond of being perceived in that manner, but she’s handled it, and has learnt to take it all in her stride. One thing she’s probably thankful about it for is that her being perceived as a sex symbol has opened up many doors for her, and she’s made the most of her opportunities. That’s judging by her Instagram profile. She's definitely stepped up her game in this social media avenue. Her pics are seriously gorgeous, with a lot of them being too much to handle.

9 Bia and Branca Feres

You get two for one in this entry. Bia and Branca Feres are arguably a couple of the hottest athletes in the world. They’re synchronized swimmers hailing from Brazil, and due to the massive amount of attention they’ve received over the years, have done a whole lot of modeling and have branched out into the acting profession too. In case you hadn’t realized by ogling at their pic, Bia and Branca are identical twin sisters. Again, not that I need to write this, because a lot of you are probably transfixed by this image, but they’re both incredibly hot, the very definition of sizzling athletes. They also do plenty of steamy modeling shoots, which they love posting on Instagram. The twins frequently send Instagram into meltdown, their pics are just that hot.

8 Lolo Jones

Welp back to being single and putting out thirst trap pictures again.

A post shared by Lolo Jones (@lolojones) on

Lolo Jones is another sizzling athlete, one of America’s finest. She’s a hurdler and bobsledder; that’s quite a combination, but it’s meant she’s reached a lot of people. Another thing that’s meant she’s become known to a lot of people over the years is her looks. She’s one of the hottest athletes in the world, period. But her popularity just skyrocketed when ESPN got her on board to pose for their coveted Body Issue. She certainly came out of her shell after that, in more ways than one. She saw the effect that pic had, and must have started to love the attention, because she’s continued posting raunchy pics on her Instagram, much to our delight. Lolo is one of the most beloved athletes in the world, and it’s clear to see why.

7 Sydney Leroux


A post shared by Sydney Leroux Dwyer (@sydneyleroux) on

It’s pretty amazing how many sultry women are visible when it comes to women’s soccer. What’s even more amazing is that most of the hotties in the game play for team U.S.A. Sydney Leroux is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful soccer players. She’s certainly the player with the best Instagram account. Sydney is drop-dead gorgeous on the pitch, but off it, it’s just ridiculous, she posts pics that are just too much to handle. It’s as if she employs someone to follow her around and take hot pics of her whenever she puts herself into such a situation. There are plenty of family pics on her Instagram but also plenty of pics of Sydney wearing not very much at all, showcasing her bikini bod. Those are the pics that result in people’s jaws hitting their floors.

6 Ana Ivanovic

If you had to pick a sport that’s basically renowned for breeding hotties, you’d have to say tennis. The WTA is filled with beauties wowing and amazing fans with what they do on the court and how they look on it and off it. Ana Ivanovic had an up and down career. But even when her form dipped, she was never too far from people’s thoughts. She made sure she stayed in the limelight by leading a very active social media life. Ana just loves sharing images with her fans through Instagram, and because of the type of pics she tends to post, we love her for it. Then, much to our delight, when she retired, she amped it up, started posting with increased frequency. Ana’s got over a million Instagram followers for a reason.

5 Anouk Verge-Depre

You think of beach volleyball and you think of hot women in bikini’s diving around on a sandy beach. The two just fit. Thankfully for us sports fans, that’s pretty much what beach volleyball is all about. The vast majority of pro beach volleyball players are stunning, look amazing and have physiques to die for, the ultimate bikini beach bodies. But none are hotter in the sport than Anouk Verge-Depre. Ever since she came onto the pro scene she’s left people transfixed by her beauty. The Swiss beach volleyball player isn’t just rated as being one of the hottest players in the game, but one of the hottest athletes in the world period. Those who’ve set eyes on her sizzling Instagram posts would be hard-pressed to disagree.

4 Miesha Tate

It's #NationalBeerDay!! Cheers🍻 @budlight @budweiser @anheuserbusch

A post shared by Miesha Tate (@mieshatate) on

The world of MMA has some real stunners. I’ve already mentioned one in this list, but here’s another to get you ogling. Miesha Tate used to compete in the UFC and was most certainly a force to be reckoned with. She’s got this ghetto girl look about her, combined with steely determination in her eyes and natural beauty, which makes her a real knockout. Her body is sizzling hot, the right blend of curves and muscles to make one gorgeous physique. We’re not really sad to have seen her retire. She can preserve her looks from the analytical desk, and we still get to see plenty of her, because Miesha is one athlete who’s prone to posting sizzling pics on Instagram. Some of her pics are cute, some are super-hot, but one thing’s for sure, they’ll certainly capture your attention, if you haven’t found them too hot to handle that is.

3 Dominika Cibulková

Dominika Cibulková has got to be the biggest underrated beauty of the tennis world. The WTA is filled with sultry beauties, but ask the average person their favorite, Dominika probably wouldn’t feature in their minds. It’s a travesty, because she’s got to be up there as being one of the hottest. Fair enough, she’s not the most glamorous on court, and she’s not the best either which means we don’t see a whole lot of her. But off the court she transforms into a sultry Slovak goddess. Dominika certainly has one of the hottest Instagram profiles, if not the hottest, out of the other female tennis players. In her Instagram intro, it says that “Fashion is my passion.” That is certainly evident. She’s a fashionista, model, and tennis player rolled into one, and luckily for us she shares her ventures with us on Instagram.

2 Eugenie Bouchard

t h r e e d a y s ⛄️

A post shared by Genie Bouchard (@geniebouchard) on

And the sizzling tennis stars just keep on coming. There are tons of hotties in the tennis world, but ever since she first came onto the scene, many have only had eyes for Eugenie Bouchard. Genie steals the attention and is one of the most popular players around. That’s solely because of her looks, because in terms of her tennis game, there’s not much to write home about. She’s a hottie on the court and looks like a model off it. But not in a showy kind of way – Genie is naturally beautiful, knows it, and flaunts it which thankfully she shares with us on Instagram. Pretty much every pic she posts is hot, but some are just ridiculous, too much for us to handle.

1 Ellen Hoog

Afzien hier! #gintonic #enzwembad #goedecombi #poesenkanonzijnerook #springbreak

A post shared by Ellen Hoog (@ellen_hoog) on

You can’t really say who the hottest athlete in the world is – everybody has their own preferences and everyone’s hot in their own way. But Ellen Hoog probably didn’t feature on a lot of people’s lists – that was until a few years ago when she did that famous nude shoot. The Dutch hockey star bared all in a sizzling shoot, and her sex appeal just grew exponentially. Since those glorious pics came out, people have begun to see her in a different light, her fanbase has continued to grow, and thankfully she’s continued to pose in raunchy shoots. Many of these shoots are posted on her Instagram profile. She also posts many other pics, each one of them glorious. The world of sport won’t be the same without Ellen, and the Instagram world wouldn't be the same without her profile.
