The 19 Best Backsides in Women’s Sports (Pics)
UPDATE: Asses have only gotten more prominent (in every sense of that word) in the last three years, and far be it for us to ignore increased demand for athletically toned backsides. So in addition the the definitive ranking below, you’ll see a couple of bonus entries that you can slot in wherever you feel like it on your own time. Or you can just consider them “honorable mentions,” because there’s nothing more honorable than having an ass like this. We’re talking samurai-level honorability here.
When the game is on the line, athletes have to perform with every set of eyeballs in the crowd locked on them. These ladies probably have to deal with every set of eyeballs on them even when the games or matches aren’t even close. Hell, even when they’re at the grocery store or walking their dog, these girls probably command attention, wanted or not. Why? ‘Cause they got back. Sir Mix-a-Lot, if you’re reading, this piece is for you. Here are some of the best backsides in women’s sports. Actually, in the world, not just women’s sports. Enjoy.
Bonus: Jen Selter
Jen Selter is what they call a “fitness model,” which is sort of a halfway point between athlete and model. While that might seem like a damning qualifier, there’s nothing that needs qualification about her butt, which is the kind that they also say “will not quit.” I don’t know who “they” are, but they have a point in this instance.
Bonus: Stephanie Rice
Olympic swimmer Stephanie Rice has landed in hot water (sorry) before for her racy swimsuits and her generally sexy demeanor in the world of professional sports. The outfit she’s wearing in the above pic might not be a swimsuit, but it does give you an OK view of what we’re all here to see.
19. Kerri Walsh
What has two index fingers and a great backside? THIS GIRL!
18. Francesca Piccinini
You don’t have to have a killer derriere to be a pro volleyball player. But it don’t hurt.
17. Anna Semenovich
I hadn’t heard of her either. Good luck trying to forget her after seeing this pic. In case you meet her and talk about her interests, she’s a figure skater. So read up on figure skating.
16. Anna Kournikova
We’re not going for subtlety here. And apparently, neither is she.
15. Maria Sharapova
This picture doesn’t offer much in the way of context, but when it comes to Sharapova’s body parts, context is wayyyyy overrated.
14. Misty May
The best thing about female volleyball players is that when they have a great ass, it is hidden from no one.
13. Sandra Pires
I think all Brazilian women’s sports should be simulcast stateside. If only for the tiny outfits.
12. Amy Acuff
I’m sure there is a great reason why a high jumper needs a tone and taught butt, but rather than ask why, let’s just be grateful for what we have been given.
11. Anastasia Ashley
She gets 42 extra hot points for being named Anastasia and not being a stripper or wannabe pop singer.
10. Gabrielle Reece
You can’t tell where the bikini stops and the backside starts, which is just fine. Even at 6′ 3″, she’s proportioned well.
