Swimming is one of those sports that is on the periphery but that does not mean it is lacking in hard-working and good looking athletes. Only in the global spotlight during the Olympics, swimming should be one of the marquee events during the Olympics this summer in Rio de Janeiro. I for one will be watching.
The ranking of this list focused solely on the beauty of the ladies I was able to find and strayed away from their athletic accomplishments. Most of the swimmers did compete in the Olympics or on the amateur level, but some have focused their attention to modelling and maintaining their public image through social media and a couple even have their own websites. The ladies on this list come from all cultures and backgrounds but they all have one thing in common, they are all extremely attractive and right away I noticed that they put a lot of work into their bodies and honing their craft. The age of the ladies is also diverse and there are a couple of ladies on the list in their late 30s and are still looking good!
Researching for this article made me realize that I have a thing for blondes as most of the top girls on this list are blonde, but there are also brunettes and light haired girls on this list to please everyone. Swimming as mentioned is one of those sports that is not in the spotlight but writing this article opened my eyes a little into the world of the athletes involved and perhaps in the future I will give it more attention for the sole reason I now know what I have been missing out on!
15 15. Amanda Beard
Beard is perhaps the most public figure on this list and has won seven medals during Olympic competition including two golds, her first being in 1996 when she was only 14 years old. She has also won 14 other swimming medals in various competitions. Beard failed to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics but she is not yet officially retired from the sport.

What is cooler than being the princess of a country? Being a princess that has also won three gold medals for South Africa! She won these medals and a silver while competing at the 1999 All-Africa Games in Johannesburg. She also was a member of the South African women's 4×100 m medley team at the 2000 Summer Olympics which finished 5th. As the Princess of Monaco Charlene attends the principality's national day celebrations, the Monaco Grand Prix, the Rose Ball which is held to raise funds for the Princess Grace Foundation, and the annual Red Cross Ball.

1 1. Stephanie Rice
This Australian beauty from Brisbane is a 14-time medal winner including a 3-time gold medal winner at the Olympic Games. Her specialties are the 200 and 400 m medley and she is 27 years old. In 2008 she was named the Telstra Australian Swimmer of the Year and Swimming World Magazine named Rice as (female) 2008 World Swimmer of the Year as well as Pacific Rim Swimmer of the Year. In 2013, Rice also won season 3 of The Celebrity Apprentice Australia. Stephanie also has her own website where she shares health and wellness tips, a stellar biography, and the latest press about her accomplishments.
She is going to spend 2016 touring the world and sharing her healthy lifestyle with others. She has already inspired countless female swimmers, athletes, and everyday citizens. Stephanie is number one on my list not only because she looks good but because she is the one athlete on this list that presented a human element and seems to be an all around good person. Can’t beat a girl beauty and an excellent personality right?
