For a long time it was believed that the field of hottest hunks was a preserve of the entertainment industry with the movies, modeling and even music dominating the issue. Sports was considered to be a backwater of sweat and dirt but that stereotype is waning and today sports, be it football, baseball, soccer, tennis, watersport or even motorsports is home to some of the most sexiest hunks in the world.
While the aggression, desire and will to win may take precedence to them, the rest of us do not fail to notice their articulate, stunning and great bodies. The men discussed below are trail blazers and the reason behind the burgeoning number of female sports fans. A pretty face and a big pay check alone will not get you into this list. The following is the top ten list of sports hunks in the world today.
Ryan, a United States native, has a rich repertoire of swimming achievements which include Olympic gold medals as well as multiple world swimming records. But the ace in the pack is his great structured body and cultured looks that remind one of the British Hollywood actors of days gone by. He probably did not have a choice but to have a great body as Olympic athletes have to be super fit for success. The fact that he is also a decent and nice guy is another tick in the box. So if you are not a swimming fanatic -which is most probably the case-, you should at least watch it if only to see this dashing hunk take to the waters.
Fredrick Ljunberg is a Swedish footballer who brings in Scandinavian flavor to this list. Freddy is more famed for his footballing prowess, but for the fashionistas the most distinguishing feature about him is his chiseled and pinup face. No doubt his look is made for the movies, especially action movies. It is this look as well as an athletic body that drew in Calvin Klein to enlist him for advertisement. Now plying his trade in the United States Major League Soccer, who knows he might just end up in Hollywood.
Jenson is an English cool head in a grueling sport that is the Formula One where tempers flare just as first as the cars. Jensen is not just a good looking stud but he also knows his stuff and remains one of the most successful exponents of formula one today. There is something sexy about motorized sports that draw in women and matters are further helped by dashing hunks like Button. Among his most outstanding attributes are his women smile, looks as well as the fact that he is a gentleman, a definite asset in an industry in dire need of them. Maybe he cannot help it as anyone speeding in a Formula One race track will look hot.
Great boyish looks, athletic body, muscular arms, smile as well as charm, this tennis star definitely ticks all the boxes. The sport of tennis is not short of good looking men but few can rival the American. It’s little wonder that the 2003 US Open champion draws more money from endorsements than from tours. Even when his tennis form deeped his looks and body didn’t. It is doubtful you will get a list of sexiest or hottest sportsmen and not have Andy in it. Whoever said that tennis is not a favorite sport with women may not have factored Andy Roddick into the equation.
At number six on the list is this Spaniard that is definitely on top of his game and appears to be edging his rivalry with Roger Federer. Other than being a superb athlete Nadal is also blessed with a body to die for. Be it his dusty good looks, forceful nature on the tennis court, humble and gentle manner, he has his game in order. Indeed watching Nadal in full-flight on a tennis court is a joy to behold. But the greatest attribute of this Spanish one man Amanda is his ‘niceness’ that makes him one of the gentlemen of sports. The fact that he is also not daft at his game adds to his appeal and beefs up his well-stocked fan base.
Say what you may about Tom Brady but he is a top-draw quarterback, not to mention that he possesses an amazing and ‘Hollywood class’ looks that almost ensure that he will have a readymade career after he trades Football. What makes this hunk even more attractive is the fact that he is gentle and carefree as he does not take himself that seriously. One of the most potent critism about American Football is that the players play protective gears, be they for head and even shoulders that makes them less attractive on the field. But as Brady portrays they are also quite sumptuous.
Christiano Ronaldo is one of the best soccer players in the world today having starred for two of the best soccer teams in the world, Manchester United and Real Madrid. But the Portugal native supplements his obvious talent with an amazing body as well as ‘pretty looks’. His cute facial looks make him appear boy-like but he is not as his chiseled body makes him a man. Ronaldo is one of the players that draws in female fans into this game and it is not difficult to see why. The fact that he is a sort of a ‘bad boy’ adds to his appeal and makes him very attractive and endearing.
Henry is an ice cool French footballer that probably got many people into watching football. Now playing in the United States Major League Soccer (MLS), Henry is a cool man on and off the field. While he may not be a favorite of the Irish after his handball atrocity that ultimately cost Ireland a World Cup berth, his grace and cool manner attracts everybody else. Tall, lean and muscular, he is a definite pin up to any adoring fan. The guy is an advertiser’s dream with his dazzling and charming smile as well as his well taken care of body.
A-Rod, as he is affectionately called by his adoring fans is one of the most storied sportsmen in the United States. While much of this has to do with playing for one of the iconic American sports franchises -the New York Yankees and the pay check that comes with it, his great Latin looks are also responsible. A batter of no mean repute, Rodriguez also turns heads with his meaty flame and elegant looks that even though not obvious at first sight they do turn heads.
Many men will hate the fact that David is on this list, many more will hate it that he is on top of the list, but give the guy his dues as he has it all. Stunning looks, great body, gentle demeanor, accent, sparkle and not to mention rich as well. Probably the most famous sportsman in the world today, Beckham will ace any hunk list let alone a sports hunk list. Even though his soccer abilities have always divided opinion the same is not true about his physical attributes. Another of his big draws is the fact that he remains a sort of an enigma, one moment stoking bad boy fires while on the next appearing gentle-like with his apologetic manner.
