There are few things sexier than a powerful woman at the top of her game. The Olympics bring together thousands of women to compete every four years. The 2016 games in Rio had about 4,700 women competing from around the world. The one thing they all had in common was a drive for excellence. Something else a handful of those amazing ladies shared, are Instagram accounts that they keep smoking hot with training photos, casual shots around the house, and some really sexy bikini pics that they are kind enough to share.
It’s only natural that some of the sexiest women around would be world class athletes that have invested thousands of hours in being in the best physical condition possible. Whether they are running track, playing beach volleyball, or compete in the pentathlon, they definitely keep it fit.
