Top 15 Athletes You Didn't Know Have Hot Sisters

Everybody had that one friend growing up whose sister was secretly the desire of everyone else. It's not an enviable position to be in if you're that friend, having to not only be the brunt of countless jokes but to constantly be on guard of your sibling.

This is all too often the case with professional athletes, who generally come from athletic families where children are encouraged and pushed to play sports growing up while maintaining a nice shape. A sister might latch on to baseball or softball to compete with and follow in her brother's footsteps, while a younger brother might pick up hockey to be just like his sister. Regardless, if a male athlete reaches the pros then chances are his sister is in great shape as well, or in some cases also a professional athlete. The women on this list, however, are more than just in great shape; they're drop-dead gorgeous. We can guarantee their brothers took some steady ribbing growing up and probably aren't invited into many locker rooms.

The following is a list of 15 beautiful women with great genes who we would love to see in a pair of tight jeans. Or, you know, whatever they feel comfortable in.

15 Jeanene Fox

Age isn't critical criteria for this list, but even if it was, we would make sure to include Jeanene Fox. The sister of former Canadian NBA player Rick Fox is pushing 40, but you wouldn't think so by looking at her. Her brother won three straight NBA championships as a supporting piece with the Los Angeles Lakers from 1999-2002 and Jeanene has played a similar role in film and television, appearing in critically-acclaimed films like Big Momma's House 2 and AmeriQua. Okay, so her film career has just six credits, but she's doing fine for herself otherwise.

Jeanene is also a supermodel who has appeared in magazines such as Vanity Fair, Maxim, and GQ. She has also starred in an Italian TV series and as a host with Sky Sports.

14 Jackie Cook

We didn't say the women on this list had to be the sisters of great athletes either. For instance, former Michigan State quarterback and recent Oakland Raiders draft pick Connor Cook has never taken an NFL regular season snap, but that doesn't disqualify his bombshell of a sister from making our list.

Jackie Cook was a solid collegiate athlete in her own right, playing four seasons as a guard for Old Dominion, but today she's best known for her jaw-dropping Instagram presence. Jackie lives in San Diego, so thankfully she's always doing her best to keep cool; her posts are generally bikini-clad selfies mixed in with some down-south scenery. And when she is fully clothed it's as a sexy nun for Halloween. Take us to church, Jackie.

13 Stephanie Murray


A post shared by Stephanie Murray (@stephmurray11) on

There's no doubt looks are important for this list, but there's also something super sexy about a prolific woman athlete - Stephanie Murray is just that. The sister of former University of Georgia quarterback and current Kansas City Chief Aaron Murray, Stephanie was a star high school flag football quarterback before following Aaron to Georgia. As a high school sophomore, Stephanie was selected to the second all-county flag football team in Florida by the Tampa Tribune.

Stephanie's other brother, Josh, is another University of Georgia alumni who has since appeared on The Bachelor in Paradise. We wouldn't be opposed if she decided to appear on the show in the future. The Murray's are a tight-knit family, after all - all three siblings not only attended the same school but shared a three-bedroom rental home.

12 Hollie Walcott

via girlswithmuscle.com

Hollie Walcott is the type of hottie that can teach you a thing or two about fitness and kick your butt in the process. The sister of soccer star Theo Walcott (and we're convinced she could take him as well), Hollie is a professional bodybuilder, who, in fact, has even in the past provided fitness help to her brother. Her Twitter profile lists her as a "competitive natural bodybuilder [and] passionate vegan." What's most impressive is that the 32 year old is a mother of two, yet still is one of the most bad ass sisters on this list.

Hollie is five years older than Theo, so we're assuming his mates have long had plenty of "arsenal" for ribbing him as a kid. Apologies for the cheap pun.

11 Sydel Curry


A post shared by Sydel Curry (@sydelcurry) on

Other than the fact her name is essentially her father's (Dell Curry) with a two-letter syllable added to the front, Sydel Curry's looks, smile, and charm are enough to make us forget what her name was in the first place. Her brother Steph is well known as "The Baby Faced Assassin," so it shouldn't be any surprise that Sydel has the same look of innocence about her. Yet, her Instagram account shows her as a 22 year old volleyball player who knows how to have fun and enjoy herself.

We can surely appreciate the family photos with brothers Steph and Seth, but we'll stay for the bikini, girl's night out, and volleyball photos. Sydel is currently a setter for the Elon University Phoenix volleyball team.

10 Gabrieli Emboaba

We're not sure exactly what it is, but they simply make women better in South America. Footballer Oscar's sister, Gabrieli Emboaba is a prime example of that; the 20 year old has more than 60,000 followers on Instagram and we're positive it's not all Chelsea fans hoping to catch a glimpse of her midfielder brother.

For the most part, she is fully clothed in her Instagram snaps, but is just downright stunning, whether it's a photo shoot or just snapping a casual picture with some friends. There was the 2014 photo of Gabrieli with Oscar and his wife where the footballer's hand is just a little too far down his sister's back for many fans' liking, but future overlord Donald Trump will make those sort of things the new normal.

9 Paulina Gretzky

Slay, All Day 🗡@casamigos @jeremyc0hen #casamigoshalloween

A post shared by Paulina Gretzky (@paulinagretzky) on

We know what you're thinking. Paulina is the daughter of Wayne Gretzky and she's the wife of golfer Dustin Johnson, but how does she make this list? Well, when it's a list of hot women, you find ways to include Paulina Gretzky.

The Great One's daughter also happens to be the sister of Trevor Gretzky, who is a former seventh round draft pick of the MLB's Chicago Cubs. Trevor played for six different minor league teams but was unable to advance past A Ball due to being an average contact hitter at best with a complete lack of power.

Paulina, as we all know, is a complete home run. There was a period about five years ago when she deleted her Instagram account after being criticized for her ever-constant posting of racy photos and while that has been dialed back in present day, there are still plenty photos of the bikini-clad Paulina flaunting her all-star body.

8 Jordan and Justine Mowen

Two for the price of one. A lot of the sisters on this list are athletes themselves or live in that world and it definitely applies to Jordan and Justine Mowen, two sisters who have become a dominant force in Australian beach volleyball.

What makes them so good at the sport is the same reason we need them qualifying for the 2020 Olympics - they're tall, athletic, blonde and beautiful (OK, maybe those last two qualities don't help with volleyball, but it doesn't hurt). Those qualities have also led to modeling opportunities for the marketable sisters who have appeared in several magazines. The sisters are a must follow on Instagram if you're at all into beautiful women wearing tight workout wear off the beach and the usual swimsuit when playing on the sand. There's even the always-appreciated booty shots, we promise.

7 Asia Irving

Kyrie's older sister is the co-owner of a clothing boutique as well as a fashion designer, business woman, and model. She's tall, slim, and has a face best described as cute, but she can be sexy, as evidenced numerous times on Instagram, where she has more than 45,000 followers.

She doesn't quite describe herself as an athlete, but lives and operates within that world. She has posted several photos with Kyrie, highlighting the close-knit relationship the two share. Asia, who graduated from Temple University with a degree in accounting, currently operates her business with the help of high-profile clients in both the NBA and WNBA. Her background in fashion is evident through her shared photos, but perhaps the sexiest (if you're a Cavaliers fan) is the picture of her kissing the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

6 Yelena Noah

via nypost.com

Joakim Noah might be best described as goofy, but the dude's sister is a stunner, plain and simple. Yelena Noah's father is a former French tennis pro and current rocker Yannick Noah, while her mother is a former Miss Sweden, so it's no surprise she finds herself on this list.

Her Instagram account showcases the life of someone who might fall into the millennial hippie category (she claims to have had a Rasta phase where she was against modeling), but she's got a cool confidence about her. Yelena is now a model, naturally, has appeared in an episode of The Blacklist, and has recently started her own jewelry line. Somehow, she only has just over 4,600 followers on Instagram, but we'll assume it's because she has her brothers ability to block.

5 Danielle Kalil

via countryshowdown.com

Matt and Ryan Kalil are lucky they're NFL linemen because there's no doubt they would otherwise have been told on a daily basis how hot their mom and sister is. Cheryl Kalil first burst onto the scene in 2012 when Matt was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings; the former model dominated the televised draft with her 38D chest. And if that wasn't enough, Danielle Kalil, the younger sister of Matt and Ryan, is a 6-foot-1 country-singing smokeshow with a set of pipes we'd love to inspect.

Danielle has performed the national anthem at NFL games in the past and has appeared on American Idol (she tried out three times before finally earning a spot on the show in her fourth attempt). She is also signed with Elite modeling agency.

4 Naya Rivera

VVV mag. L❤️ve this pic!

A post shared by Naya Rivera (@nayarivera) on

The sister of Oakland Riders tight end Mychal Rivera has been in our lives since 2009 when she was cast on the critically-acclaimed FOX hit series Glee. She now has 24 IMDB film credits to her name and has cast a bigger shadow on her brother than perhaps any of the sisters named in this list.

She signed a deal in 2011 to produce a solo album with Columbia Records, but that eventually fell through after her debut single did poorly. The single, "Sorry," featured rapper Big Sean, with whom Rivera engaged in 2013, but broke up with the following year. She recently appeared in an anti-Donald Trump video with a horde of other celebrities, so we won't make any "tight end" jokes tying her to her brother. We'll save those for President Trump's inauguration speech.

3 Anna Galchenyuk

via twitter.com

We can only assume Montreal Canadiens star Alex Galchenyuk, as a young hockey player of Belarusian descent, grew up idolizing The Russian Rocket. To be clear, we're talking about Pavel Bure, not his bombshell of an older sister, Anna.

The elder Galchenyuk is everything Anna Kournikova led Americans to believe about young Eastern European women; she's tall, blonde and incredibly flexible according to some very interesting Instagram posts. She's really thin, but it works with her distinct Eastern European look and full lips. The family moved to North America in 2009 so Alex could pursue his hockey career, but that decision has since helped Anna as well. She is the currently the co-founder of Galchenyuk Enterprises, a sports management and marketing firm, and works out of Miami and Montreal.

2 Callie Rivers


A post shared by callie rivers (@callierivers) on

Like Paulina Gretzky above, Callie Rivers might be best identified by her father, but her brother Austin has become a dependable NBA regular. Callie, 27, comes from an athletic family - she has two other brothers who play college basketball - and is a former All-American volleyball player with the Florida Gators.

In the past, she has been romantically linked to NBA Superstars Kyrie Irving and Paul George and she has even been credited with convincing DeAndre Jordan to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers after he had already committed to signing with the Dallas Mavericks. We're not quite sure how she leveraged Jordan to stay in Los Angeles, but we're thinking he probably made the right choice if she was leaning on him.

1 Rafaella Beckran

via 1desmeilleurs.co.uk

The sister of Brazilian soccer star Neymar, Rafella Beckran is so hot that even her brother has her face tattoed on his arm. As odd as that might be (and it is), we at least know that Neymar is a man that appreciates true beauty, whether it's through his ball-striking ability or his, uh, sister.

Anyway, there needs be no argument for including the beautiful Brazilian on this list; Rafella has more than two million followers on Instagram, even though her account is private, and is heavily followed by English and Brazilian tabloids. The 20-year-old model is a big fan of her brother and is often sighted wearing his jersey at games, but grew up a huge fan of David Beckham; in fact, she even changed her last name to resemble his.
