10 Hottest Female Olympic Athletes

With the advent of ESPN’s Body Issue as well as the numerous swimsuit editions from past years, we have all wondered who truly ranks as the “Hottest” female athlete out there. As such, The L Stop decided to quantify that question by conducting a survey. The requirements were simple: the athletes had to be a member of a current Olympic team or a former medalist and over the age of 18. We then went through each Olympic sport to find potential candidates. This led to a list of 38 Olympic athletes. A survey was then created to whittle that list down to the Top 10. It was a really close race, as many of the athletes were only separated by a few votes. But the people have spoken! Here’s the list from 10th place to 1st place.

10. Alex Morgan
