Top 20 Hottest European Female Athletes

Sports fans occasionally do take the time to admire the athletes of the opposite sex in the sports they love. I mean for a lot of men, perhaps not. It isn’t often that my buddies and I will pick up a 24-pack and on a Sunday afternoon to watch some good old WNBA. Let’s face it, the sports played by female athletes are often less exciting from an entertainment aspect, even though they are amazing athletes and they are exciting to watch, I’m just referring to comparing the two.

But then, you see this one girl. Man she has it all. The looks, the skills, the attitude, and its instant love. We are exposed to beautiful American female athletes, but what about our cousins to the east, in Europe, who boast some of the most beautiful women in the world? The female athletes in Europe aren’t only skilled in their athletics, but very beautiful as well. It gives a whole different aspect to the game, and you become obsessed when this one girl comes on screen, and before you know it you’re not watching the Pats game anymore, but you’re watching Ice Skating on a Sunday afternoon. That’s what a beautiful female athlete can do to a sports fan. So we compiled a list of the top 20 hottest female European athletes. Some names you’ll recognize, some you won’t; but you’ll enjoy it all the same.

Did you know that one of the most beautiful European female athletes actually plays curling professionally? To be honest I didn’t even know curling was played in Europe, but you learn something every day. Introducing Claudia Fischer, originally named Claudia Toth, an Austrian professional curling player that was the teams captain from 2004-2007. She also played in four European Championships in those years, leading her team as captain all four times.

Continuing to represent all European countries equally, we now move to Croatian Basketball to meet the beauty that is Antonija Sandric. She currently plays basketball for Toulouse Metropole Basket in the Ligue Feminine de Basketball in France. She’s often described as the most beautiful sportswoman in Croatia, and I understand why, having spent the past four minutes staring at her Wikipedia picture. Bleacher Report named her the most beautiful woman at the 2012 Olympic Games, and NBA player Nate Robinson even tweeted that she "might be the most beautiful woman basketball player ever to lace up some sneakers.”

There is only one Russian female tennis player that can match Maria Sharapova’s great beauty, and that’s Anna Kourinkova. Depending on who you talk to, they may even say that Anna is actually more beautiful than Maria. This is not a drill folks, she really is for real. She is an absolute bombshell, and takes first place on my list any day of the week. The former tennis player is currently 34 years old and as beautiful as ever. In her prime, she was one of the most recognizable faces in women’s tennis and was once ranked as high as 8th worldwide despite never having won a title. Her appearance in near naked photo-shoots and level of skill on the field made her one of the most common people searched on Google.
