Sexy Women in Sports 2012 [66 GALLERIES]

2012 was packed full of amazing sports stories. Being a Summer Olympics’ year provides tons of fodder alone (or at least far more fodder than those crappy Winter Olympics years). We saw gold for gymnasts, a man bolting to back-to-back 100 meter wins, and Michael Phelps returning to the headlines for something other than pot smoking and Subway commercials.

And that’s just the tip of the 2012 sports’ iceberg: the NY Giants parlayed a late-season tear into an unexpected Super Bowl, the “Big Three” finally turned up the heat enough to win an NBA title, baseball was played and hockey wasn’t.

But these are all stories you’ve heard before — probably a million times over. So we figured we’d hone in on a few stunning specifics: namely the lovely ladies who won our hearts in the year that was. Here are the women that made 2012 a compelling year, even if the events they participated in (or covered or dated actual athletes who played in) weren’t.

Our list features not only the hottest athletes, but also those wonderful WAGs, salacious sideline reporters and other chicks we can’t think of an alliterating adjective for…

      3. MILO says:

        So whats your problem.. Didn't you get your's…..

    2. not racist says:

      shut up with the race stuff you ppl act as if everything has to b equal so if its sexy women they should go and find the same number of girls in each race to make you happy thts not how it works color means nothing ppl are ppl so if they didnt make this list maybe nect time grow up

      1. daryl says:

        Thats telling him.

    3. wallace says:

    4. Diane says:

      When can we see more of them !!! Especially in the nude…….Diane.

      1. manuel says:

        I agree with you .

    5. guest says:

      in the world of people of color, white is not a color, it is a number.

      1. joey says:

        you are so correct

    6. guest says:

      Its only but prevelent (Widespread in a particular area, like beauty, at a particular time, like where the anglos (white skined-blue-green eyes) is where its at now and days knowing we now live in a "melting pot " with so many diverse cultures its only time until people will grow up and stop with the name calling jealousy act

    7. PassingThrough says:

      I definitely appreciate these photos. Now I can get back to work.

    8. daryl says:

      Daddy likes.

    9. guest says:

      needs more diversity….there were no beautiful spanish, asian or black women in sports this year?

    10. Hurt says:

      what!! no V. Williams or S. Williams. Ya this poll is rigged!

    11. jdb says:

      Where is Serena?

    12. MILO says:

      Who care's what the color of their skin is. As long as they take a shower and smell good. But again I do prefer white chicks….

    13. WP Nascar Fan says:

      I cant believe Danica Patrick is not included, for her racing, and her go daddy commercials!!!!

    14. Rick says:

      Where is, 2012 French Open Champion, Maria Sharapova? A true athlete not a cheerleader! This poll is rigged as someone said.

      1. frank says:

        Its also bias, there's 1 black girl, 1 Hispanice girls, no asians and all the rest are white girls.

    15. John says:

      All the women on here are very attractive, but this list is incomplete. There are many other attractive women athletes left out of this and most of the women categorized as "WAG" are stars in their own right outside of sports.

    16. wazer548 says:

    17. shotgun517 says:

      You tell me how can Blacks be racist ?, what corporation or business do they own to control who they hire or fire?. Buddy you just wanna spill you hatred maybe look at yourself in the mirror!

    18. PatrickLA says:

      Someone get Paulina Gretzky her own Reality Show so she can totally go Paris Hilton and embarrass her father! Minus her name and looks, who really cares?

    19. PatrickLA says:
