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…
