Itsuki Hirata

Hirata fights for Asian MMA promotion ONE FC and is one of the most popular female athletes on their roster. The atomweight contender began life as a judoka with Olympic dreams. However, injuries brought them crashing down and she transitioned to MMA. The Japanese star overcame adversity and is now one of their big names.

Meanwhile, the media-friendly fighter embraces her femininity. She’s happy to show that strong is beautiful as we can see from her Instagram pictures.

Alex Morgan

The San Diego Wave star is one of the greatest women’s soccer stars ever. She is a two-time World Cup winner with the USWMNT and is also an Olympic champion. Morgan is a goal-scoring machine and possesses a lethal right foot. Her sporting career has taken her across the world and she’s an inspiration to millions of young girls.

Morgan shows them that strong is beautiful and encourages them to partake in sports. Many teenage girls feel awkward about their bodies and stop participating. It’s a shame but elite athletes like Morgan show them that they don’t have to stop. Morgan’s girl-next-door looks have also won her more fans (via Sport Bible).


Tracy Cortez

Cortez is one of the prettiest fighters in the world but she’s also incredibly fierce. The UFC star overcame intense adversity to rise to the top of her chosen sport. Initially, it was her brother’s dream to become a professional fighter. Sadly, bone cancer took him from this world and Cortez vowed to follow his path.

Sometimes Cortez leaves her fights with battle scars on her face. These cuts and bruises can’t change the fact that she’s a gorgeous woman. Cortez loves to embrace her femininity and often shares photos of her outfits on social media. But this doesn’t change the fact that she’s an animal in the cage (via MMA Fighting).

Chloe Kim

Korean-American Kim singlehandedly changed the face of women’s snowboarding. She has broken records and proven that women can hit the same standards as men on the slopes. Kim has Olympic gold medals and also cleared up at the X Games. She even took a year-long break from snowboarding so she could focus on being a normal college student.

Then she bounced back and casually won a gold medal in Beijing. There’s also no denying that Kim is a very pretty young woman. She demonstrated her musical talent on The Masked Singer so there may be a career as a pop star after she retires. Kim has the world at her feet because everything she touches turns to gold (via Daily Star).


Zhang Weili

Chinese MMA fighter Zhang Weili is a monster in the cage. But she has a very sweet personality in regular life and many fans find this very endearing. Zhang doesn’t care much about fashion or cosmetics like some of the athletes on this list. But she has a natural beauty and a great attitude that people love.


The UFC champion trains in the US and is a ferocious trainer. There are many videos of her ludicrous training programs as she doesn’t leave a stone unturned. Zhang shows that strong is beautiful by giving her soul to her sport. She has some amazing knockout victories that shocked fight fans everywhere (via SCMP).

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

This Jamaican superstar is one of the greatest track stars ever. She has more Olympic medals than she knows what to do with and broke records across the board. Furthermore, she’s an inspiration because she won races after giving birth. Fraser-Pryce showed that there are no boundaries that a woman can’t cross.

Athletics Weekly

The iconic athlete possesses a powerful physique that gave her an advantage over many of her rivals. She also glows with delight after her victories as we can see above. Fraser-Pryce has an amazing smile and shows that strong is beautiful. People talk about Usain Bolt but she deserves as much respect as her fellow Jamaican (via Athletics Weekly).

Eugenie Bouchard

Bouchard is one of Canada’s most popular athletes even if she’s arguably an underachiever. The tennis star rose to prominence after she reached the 2014 Wimbledon final. She became a top-five player but dropped down the ranks over the years. Nonetheless, she’s a great athlete and a beautiful woman (via The Sun).


The Canadian is also self-aware and is happy to turn her visual appeal into revenue. She is active on social media and fans thirst after her swimwear pictures. Luxury brands love attractive people and that’s why Bouchard always has endorsements. Even if she’s not the best tennis player, she still makes a lot of money.

Lauren Sesselmann

Sesselmann is one of Canada’s most important soccer players. She’s also inarguably one of the most beautiful women in the sporting world today. The Canadian forward shows that being healthy and strong is more attractive than following a radical diet. Many female athletes are inadvertently more attractive than regular models.

This soccer star is also a successful fashion icon. Everybody knows that she’s a gorgeous person and she uses this to enhance her profile. There’s nothing wrong with this because it means she makes more money. An athlete’s career is short so she’s doing the right thing. Her loyal fans obsess over every Instagram photo because she looks fantastic (via Daily News Post).

The Japan Times

Miho Nonaka

Nonaka was one of the breakout stars of the Tokyo Olympic Games. The climbing star became an internet sensation because of her skills on the wall as well as her unique appearance. Nonaka enjoys dyeing her hair in bright shades and also wears distinctive make-up. She believes that strong is beautiful and embraces her femininity.

The Japan Times

Now the Japanese climber is one of the best in the world. A glance at her lean physique reveals that she is in sublime condition. Climbing is a demanding sport because it’s a full-body exercise. Athletes must have strong arms as well as explosive power in their legs. Nonaka is at the top of her game (via Climber News).


Olivia Dunne

There aren’t many college athletes on this list but Dunne is a special case. ‘Livvy’ has more Instagram followers than the reigning Olympic champion Sunisa Lee. She’s a superstar because fans love what they see. Yes, strong is beautiful but she also has model looks. That’s why she’s one of the most valuable NCAA stars today.

AP News

The LSU star is brilliant on social media and knows how to maximize her reach. Her photos attract hundreds of thousands of likes and many simps obsess over her. Dunne is a very good gymnast but she’s not the best. Nonetheless, she’s smashing life and will enjoy a successful modeling career when she leaves college (via The Guardian).

New York Post

Simone Biles

Biles is one of the most petite athletes on this list because she’s an elite gymnast. But this pocket rocket is one of the greatest Olympians ever with seven medals. She also won acclaim during the Tokyo Games as she openly confronted a mental health battle. This was very brave because many people judged her.

But none of these keyboard warriors should talk about her because she’s a born competitor. Many people think that Biles is one of the cutest sports stars out there today too. Yes, we should emphasize her talents because ultimately that’s what counts. Nonetheless, her attractive appearance helps her brand (via Clutchpoints).
