Retirement is a stage of life that can come with a lot of fear or satisfaction, depending on how you spend your many years working. Although there is no universal retirement age, most countries set their retirement ages anywhere around 60 years and beyond. However, there are professions where people hardly retire and they can keep working deep into their old age while other professions demand that people retire early because they cannot handle the strain or competition.
Athletes fall in the latter category, where you find many of them out of their different professions by the age of 35 years. When an athlete's speed, stamina, power, health, or even special skills begin to move from exceptional to not so exceptional, then it is time for the athlete to start thinking about hanging up their boots sooner rather than later.
Most fans always hate seeing their favorite female athletes calling it quits. In addition to loving the game that these female athletes are involved in, people love to see these beauties in the field, court, track, or anywhere their games take place. The physical demands of the sports keep these ladies looking smoking hot and drop dead gorgeous, and not being able to see them playing can break our hearts. However, these women end up looking even hotter after they retire because they usually get even more time to take good care of themselves. Here are the top 10 women we hated seeing retire, but love to see at every other opportunity because they are still smoking hot.
