5 Yuliya Efimova
Yuliya Efimova is a swimmer who is representing Russia in Rio at the Olympics. Efimova is both beautiful and talented, which as we know is a lethal combination. In 2012, she went home with a bronze medal from the games for her impressive time in the 200 meters breaststroke. She is already done competing in Rio and she is going back to Russia with a silver medal this time. Efimova is not the most innocent athlete to ever compete. In 2014, the beautiful swimmer failed a drug test. She tested positive for DHEA, which is a form of steroid and was disqualified from the sport from October 2013 until February 2015. As a result, she was also stripped of her medals at the 2013 European Short Course Championship, something she is not proud of. She was almost not allowed to participate in Rio, however, last minute they gave her permission, something many athletes are not happy about.
Regardless of the trouble that she has gotten herself into, Efimova is by far one of the most stunning women competing at the games, which is exactly why she is on this list.
4 Darya Klishina
Darya Klishina is the definition of a Russian doll. The beauty was born in Tver, Russia in 1991. At the early age of 8, Klishina developed a love for volleyball but by the age of 13 she switched to long jump and has not looked back ever since. Her father who was a former athlete has always been her mentor and he is the one who inspired her to switch sports. Since the IAAF suspended the Russian national federation from competing in the games due to a breach of the anti-doping rules, Klishina had to get special permission to compete in the games. Thankfully for her, she did and will be able to go for gold in Rio. Although this athlete is great at what she does, we at The Richest think she has big potential in modeling. With that face and body, she should be gracing the cover of every magazine.
3 Shelina Zadorsky
This next bombshell is a soccer player who is representing Canada at the Olympic games. Shelina Zadorsky is a 23-year-old who was born and raised in London, Ontario. This young athlete has worked hard to get to the games and she is going to play her best while she represents her country. Zadorsky is a natural beauty who looks amazing on the field in her element. She has always been an athletic person and grew up playing numerous sports including volleyball, basketball and of course, soccer. In 2014, she graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in psychology. Zadorsky may seem super intimidating but in reality, she is a normal young woman who loves shopping, watching movies, traveling and spending time with her family. Shelina Zadorsky is extremely deserving of a spot on this list and is without a doubt one of the most beautiful athletes competing in Rio that you may not have known about.
2 Jaqueline Carvalho
Brazilian women are known as some of the sexiest women in the world and our next Olympian is a perfect example why. Jaqueline Carvalho is a 32-year-old Brazilian volleyball player who happens to be one of the most stunning athletes at the 2016 Olympic Games. Carvalho is a two-time Olympic champion and she is expecting to add another medal to her collection in Rio. The volleyball player is known as one of the best in the world and her confidence is obvious both on and off the court. Carvalho is married to Murilo Endres, who is a volleyball player as well. The couple welcomed a child into this world in 2013, and Carvalho has never looked better. Jaqueline Carvalho is a beautiful woman with a lean body who has rightfully earned herself a spot on this list and we wish her the best of luck.
1 Alex Morgan
This American soccer player is undeniably one of the most gorgeous athletes at the Olympic games. The 28-year-old bombshell is one of team USA's best players, but even if she wasn't, you'd have to admit fans would want her to stick around. Morgan grew up in California and has had a love for soccer since she was a child, once saying, “Soccer is what I grew up doing - it's my passion, and I'm way more comfortable on the field in my soccer cleats."
She is one of those athletes that strive for perfection and she shows nothing but love and respect to her teammates saying, “I want to keep improving, continue to help my teammates improve, make my teammates look good. Continue bringing something new to the game, never getting completely content and always trying to get better". Her humble motivation is also why we love her so much, but when you look at her, there is no real secret why she made this list.
