And there you have it – some of the sexiest bodies a lifetime of sports can produce. Now if only your dreams could come true and you actually managed to wife one of these (or other hot female athletes) hotties your life would be set. Just make sure you don’t go around trolling the WNBA looking to pick someone up. Notice none of them were on this list? And if you do manage to locate a decent looking Amazon she would probably play for the “wrong team” anyways.
