by: Howard Cosmell On  Friday, January 6, 2012

Unsurprisingly, the women populating this list of most Googled female athletes are not entirely different than a regular list of the hottest female athletes. It’s almost like people have a tendency to Google good-looking people (Susan Boyle excepted). Well, at least the denizens of this countdown are bonafide athletes and aren’t ring girls or professional wrestlers. Anyway, cruise on through the 30 most popular (according to Google) female athletes. There are some names you may know, and some you may not, but it will be worth your while.
