The 15 Most Beautiful People in Sports

I know. I know. If you are good at sports AND off the chains hot on top of it, you shouldn't be allowed to live in society with the rest of us. Talent and beauty combined are basically the "get out of jail free card" of life. You can basically do anything.

Nothing is worse than watching the Olympics opening ceremony and seeing the people on the Swedish and Australian teams, and realizing there are people out there who truly have it all. They are athletically gifted beyond what is even reasonable and they are worthy of a GQ cover.

Each year, People Magazine ranks the most beautiful people in entertainment, film, music and television. For years, David Beckham always made the cut. He promoted more products than all of the Kardashian sisters combined. He got naked and sported a milk mustache to convince people milk is healthy, not full of hormones. He also took everything but his Calvins off for several Calvin Klein ads.  His newest venture is scotch, targeting China as a main market where Becks continues to rack up the endorsement deals.

Tennis players have long discovered that being gorgeous is key to earning money and exposure. Anna Kournikova is one of the most well-known tennis stars in the world and she has never won a major title.

They aren't the only beauties in the sports world and we decided to make our own list of the 15 most beautiful people in sports.

15 Danica Patrick

Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Danica Patrick is not only an Indy car and NASCAR driver, but she's a model. She was a cheerleader in high school. It's safe to say she's the only driver with that on her resume.

She's the first woman to compete in the caliber of races that she does, which until her arrival was dominated solely by male drivers. A lot of critics have said Patrick is able to race because she is a marketing machine and good for ratings and sport exposure, not because she is a race car driver. Tell that to the number of races she's won and the podium finishes she's had.

Patrick has been featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition twice. She's been listed in sexy people lists by Victoria Secret.

14 Jesus Navas

1 Tom Brady 

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The only thing Tom Brady can't do is convince people he had nothing to do with deflategate, even though he and his adorable hat tried very hard to do so. Other than that, he can lead the New England Patriots dynasty to multiple Super Bowl victories, wear Uggs, get drafted in the 6th round of the NFL draft and still be one of the most successful quarterbacks of all-time. Brady is easily one of the most beautiful and successful people on the plant, earning more photo shoots and magazine covers than most of the world's top models.

Brady is so pretty that he's been able to rock the absolute worst hair cuts ever without losing his appeal.
