For quite some time, the level of interest in female’s sport has incredible increased, this is also felt by the athletes themselves. These athletes have pushed themselves and worked very hard to attain the position they are today. Let’s take for example, Maria Sharapova, who can be said to be the highest-paid athlete in the world today after she moved to America at the age of 7 with her father, or Tania Cagnotto, the Italian diver, who have made more fame than she can imagine with her elegant looks.
Of course, female athletes are thriving at the moment, impressing us with their athletic abilities. A few of them also made millions from endorsements and prestigious modeling gigs. Having that in mind, below is a list of 20 female athletes involved in iconic moments in the female sports.
Before Connor McGreogor the noisy Irishman became famous in the UFC, Ronda Rousey the courageous female fighter was the face of the sport. The American was a judo fighter before she started her mixed-martial-arts career. She transitioned into a cage fighter after she won a bronze medal in the Olympic in Beijing 2008.
After she made her UFC debut in 2012, Ronda Rousey won every match in just the first round and was undefeated in 11 matches before her reign was cut short when she lost to Holly Holm an underdog.
Since her fame, she has featured in many movies, playing prominent roles including one in the much criticized movie Entourage. Ronda Rousey is also one of the most famous names in the female sport alongside Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams.
