So you think they’re hot and great in their field of sports and you’re wondering maybe they’d also look good naked. Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore. It isn’t just budding stars or Hollywood A-listers that have posed nude for magazines, but many of the female athletes too. Is this a crime? Should they be suspended to play their sport? Absolutely not; and it’s because they haven’t made a scandal, they have simply posed for a photo with nothing but their glorious physique to show. Others see it as a work of art and many have respected these ladies for what they were able to do in front of a camera. You’ll be surprised how many famous nude female athletes have made it big in the industry.
10. Nicole Reinhardt
Nicole is a babe of a girl but whoever would have thought that she is a kayaker? Nicole is a German kayaker and has played in the Beijing Olympics. She has graced her country’s Playboy and her doing so made kayaking into a sport with little followers to that of many in an instant.
9. Tatiana Grigorieva
Who said only pole dancers can go nude? Well, Tatiana definitely changed that when she posed nude for a magazine. Rather than a pole dancer, Tatiana is a Russian pole vaulter. Her sport has definitely done a great job maintaining her physique such that showing off her body is something that she can do confidently, even with the absence of poles and clothes. Oh and she does so with such finesse you won’t be able to turn your heads away.
8. Rena “Sable” Mero
Even though it was still back in the days, Rena Mero made a great appearance on the Playboy magazine. Already a hot WWF star, she was even hotter when she took off her clothes and posed nude. Did this mean that she wasn’t that much great of a fighter? That’s absolutely a no as she is both able to kick ass on the ring as well as she is able to show some on the magazine. Others in the same sport have gone this route as well but no one has measured up to the impact that Rena has made.
7. Lauren Jackson
A basketball player need not be boyish to be able to play well. Lauren Jackson is a true testament of this. She not only plays well but dresses well too. To make matters even more enticing, she looks great even without her clothes on. She appeared nude in a black and white photograph in an Australian magazine. Needless to say, she did it to raise money for the Olympics and boy did that really raise funds. If they continue on using this ploy for raising funds, Lauren Jackson would be able to do it effectively. So, it’s just lights, camera, action and Lauren in all her beauty exposed.
6. Amanda Beard
Seeing a scantily clad Amanda Beard is nothing new what with being an American swimmer and all. What is new is that she posed nude for Playboy back in 2007. Now that was a sight to behold.

Long legs make for great long jumps and that’s what Ineta Radevica is known for. This Latvian long jumper has legs that can kill and a face just equally enticing. She is a classic European beauty.

Long jumps require talent and posing nude in front of a camera requires guts and both these characteristics is something that Ineta clearly possesses.
