Yuna: #4 in Florida Times top 10 Female Athletes
Counting down the masters of women’s athletics
Is there a better time in the sports calendar to count down the top active female athletes in the world? This list does not factor in marketability, so see ya, Sharapova. Also, the list only includes women who are actually athletes. You may now sit down, Erin Andrews.
1. Serena Williams: Owner of 13 Grand Slam titles, the reigning Wimbledon champ is clearly the most dominant player on the WTA Tour when healthy.
2. Marta: Brazilian soccer star has won the FIFA World Player of the Year award for the last five years.
3. Dara Torres: The five-time Olympian and 12-time medalist is gearing up to add more records to her resume in the 2012 London games.
4. Kim Yu-na: The South Korean put up a world-record score in winning the women’s figure skating gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games.
5. Lindsey Vonn: One of three women alpine skiers ever to win the World Cup and downhill championships in three consecutive years (2008-10) and won a gold medal at 2010 Olympics.
6. Lauren Jackson: The Seattle Storm center is the WNBA’s reigning MVP, an award she has won three times in her career.
7. Nastia Liukin: Being the reigning 2008 Olympic gymnastics individual all-around gold medalist has to place her on the list, even if she’s unsure if she’ll try to defend her title in 2012.
8. Danica Patrick: The first woman to ever win an IndyCar Series event is now also competing in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series.
9. Yani Tseng: Only 22, Tseng is a three-time major winner and the No. 1 ranked women’s golfer in the world.
10. Maya Moore: Turned in one of the most dominant collegiate careers of all time at Connecticut and is poised to become WNBA’s next star.
