Majority of today’s sports are dominated by men. From basketball to boxing, billiards, football, baseball, hockey, mixed martial arts and so on. However, they aren’t only the ones who are making a name for themselves in this field. Women also have their share of significant contributions in the world of sports. In fact, the females have become so competitive in sports that they have already stolen some, if not most of the spotlight from their male counterparts.
The same can be said about the Philippines, as the Pinays are becoming a nationwide sensation in the world of sports, not only because of their talent, but also because most of our female athletes are really beautiful. Most of them are so gorgeous, they have found other profession outside of sports such as modelling.
The country has a LOT of pretty Filipina athletes, and we have decided to list ten of the most beautiful and gorgeous sports personalities here. Their games are definitely a must-watch, and their looks are definitely as great as their talents. This list is not limited to 100% pure Pinays, because we acknowledge the nationality of some Fil-foreign players whom we felt deserving to be on this list.
Julaton looks like a Filipino American fitness model without her gloves. However, when she decides to wear her gear and step into the ring, she can definitely prove to you that her looks aren’t the only part of her that can strike people, but also her punches and kicks. She has a very successful career in boxing, winning two world titles (Women’s WBO Super Bantamweight and IBA Super Bantamweight). She recently joined a mixed martial arts company (One FC) and immediately made her presence felt. She’s definitely not the type of woman you’d want to mess with.
Before Gaby became a commercial model and TV host, she was one of the few Filipinas went crazy over Formula 3 Racing. She had a great career that ran for not more than 10 years. She is the only Filipina to compete in an entire season of Asian Formula 3 circuit and her first place finish brought her fame. She also plays multiple sports like basketball and football. She’s got the beauty and the brains, which makes her the ideal woman. Plus, she can definitely drive you crazy.
At first glance, you wouldn’t know that Lagman is a member of the national Taekwondo team because of how pretty she is. Make no mistake though, for looks are as deadly as her kicks. Lagman is a two-time gold medalist in the South East Asian Games. She is also considered as the face of Philippine Taekwondo not because she has the killer looks, but because she is a very talented player. Aside from being a successful Jin, Lagman is also a successful nurse. So she can really take good care of people, too. She also has her gorgeous cousins as teammates in the Taekwondo national squad; Rani Ortega and Carla Alarilla. You might want to check them out too. They’re also beautiful and multi-awarded athletes.
Not only is she one of the most popular volleyball players in the country, Alyssa Valdez is also a certified Filipina beauty. There is really no need for a formal introduction because she is a national sports icon. Considered as the face and future of Philippine volleyball, Valdez would always attract people who want to have a picture with her either because people like how she looks, or they love how they play; or it could be both. Her best asset aside from her superb skills in volleyball? Her smile.
When she was playing for the Ateneo Lady Eagles during her college days, Cainglet was considered as the darling of the crowd, winning the hearts of fans because of her pretty face and cute smile. She became an endorser of several commercial products, undoubtedly because people really can’t get enough of her beauty. Everybody was surprised when she suddenly got married, but that didn’t change the fact that she’s still one of our prettiest volleyballs, ever. She’s back playing professional volleyball after giving birth to her first child, and boy it seemed like she never got pregnant at all.
The Filipina-German racer earned high praises when she became the first ever female winner of the Rock Island, Illinois Grand Prix back in 2008. Her looks can immediately catch the attention of someone as fast as her driving speed. There is no doubt that Bumgarner belongs to this list. After all, it feels good to see a very beautiful lady coming out of the car and tell you that she’ll take you wherever you want to go. Okay, it’s a bit over imagination, but then again, who wouldn’t want to be with her, even in their dreams?
Lapus is one beautiful athlete that blends really well with the water waves she’s often riding. Although surfing doesn’t get much exposure here in the Philippines, Lapus is still one of the few surfing icons of the country. She’s been doing this for more than ten years. She’s also the first ever certified coach of surfing in the Philippine. Aside from surfing, the gorgeous tanned Pinay athlete also likes skateboarding, wall climbing, and diving. She’s a natural adventurer, but she looks like a super model.
Datuin once wowed the avid sports fans with her volleyball skills as a member of the De La Salle University Lady Spikers. She then had a change of heart and decided to join the national Netball team, Siklab Pilipinas. This multi-talented athlete also became a cover girl of FHM; a proof that she has both the looks and the skills. Datuin may look simple, but that is her best asset. She doesn’t need a lot of makeup to make herself beautiful. She can captivate anyone with her athleticism and gorgeousness. It’s a win-win for all you volleyball/netball fans if you decide to watch her play.
A familiar face on lists like this, Rachel Anne Daquis isn’t only considered as one of the prettiest Pinay athletes in the country, but also one of the prettiest in general. An alumna of FEU, Daquis helped bring the sport of volleyball to prominence. Her looks definitely did a lot in convincing a lot of fans to watch volleyball. During the 28th SEA Games, Daquis caught the attention of the media covering the event, to the point that the press wanted to interview her personal life first, before talking to her about the game. She also finished 7th in the voting for the FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women of 2015. What more can you ask for?
Are you surprised? We’re not. Loraine is a very accomplished billiards player, playing most of her career games overseas. She learned from some of the best players in billiards history, and she also made a name for herself as a brilliant player who just happened to look like a Playboy cover girl. People would often be left with a difficult option whenever they are watching Loraine. Are they going to look at her face and body, or are they going to look at her game? She looks really sexy, despite being happily married. Ooops, did we disappoint anyone? Oh well, just look at all her photos scattered all over the internet.
