THESE stunning athletes draw attention for their talent and good looks.
From the world of swimming to skateboarding, these stars are pin-ups of their sports.
And they could definitely be considered as contenders to German runner Alica Schmidt’s throne as ‘World’s sexiest athlete’, although it’s worth noting that’s a tag she doesn’t necessarily like.
SunSport has drawn up a list of contenders below…
28-year-old Canadian Newman is a track and field star – who specialises in the pole vault.
She competed in the 2016 and 2020 Olympics, but didn’t get a medal.
However, at the 2018 Commonwealth Games where she set a new Games record of 4.75 metres.
Last year, she joined OnlyFans and has set pulses racing online.
The gorgeous Ukrainian high-jumper, 24, was a youth star and 2017 European U23 Championships gold medalist.
She followed that with the silver medal in the 2017 World Championships.
Sadly, she fell short at the 2020 Olympics – finishing eighth.
Ripped Leblanc-Bazinet is a CrossFit Games athlete.
Her crowning glory came in 2014, when she won the CrossFit Games in California.
Sponsored by Red Bull, she also has a degree in Chemical Engineering from the Université de Sherbrooke.
Klaver, 24, specialises in sprint races.
She was part of the Dutch 4×400 metre relay team that finished sixth at the Tokyo Games.
But, most recently, they scored success at the European Championships – winning gold in Munich.
Skateboarding is probably the coolest sport around.
Brazilian-American Bufoni, 29, is one of the best at it – and looks glam too.
She is a six-time X Games gold medalist, and has over four million Instagram followers.
Efimova is a successful Russian swimmer, who at 30 still has plenty to offer in the pool.
She is the Russian record holder in the 200 metre individual medley (short course), 50 metre breaststroke (short course and long course), 100 metre breaststroke (short course and long course), and 200 metre breaststroke (short course and long course.
In the 2012 London Games she scored bronze in 200m breaststroke, while in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro went one better winning silver and added another silver in the 100m breaststroke.
Australia’s Jenneke is a former model who graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Engineering.
When she’s not posing or studying, Michelle is a star at the hurdles – the 29-year-old returned to the sport back in July at the Commonwealth Games after an injury lay off.
She missed out on a bronze medal by just 0.09 seconds as she finished fifth in the final of the 100m hurdles.
The Serbian long jumper is a two-time indoor champion, three times European indoor champion and reigning European champion.
In 2013, she made history as the first Serb to win a medal at the IAAF Outdoor World Championships.
The 32-year-old followed that up with the gold medal at the indoor event in 2018.
However, at the Olympics last year she was disappointed to finish just outside the medals in the fourth.
The very beautiful Kiira, 34, retired from competitive skating in 2015.
However, she is still very involved in the sport as a coach and continues to perform in ice shows in her native Finland.
She is a three-time European medalist, the 2010 Trophée Eric Bompard champion, the 2012 Rostelecom Cup champion, a two-time Cup of China medalist, and a five-time Finnish national champion.
