They are barely legal. They wear tight, skimpy outfits. They can arch their backs and straddle like it’s their job, and well, it kind of is, They’re college gymnasts, and we love them. It’s hard not to obsess over these college athletes in all their spandexed, flexible glory. Read on to see CollegeOTR’s Top 10 Hottest College Gymnasts.
1) Nikki Child may have graduated from University of Georgia last year, but she’s such a 10, we couldn’t keep her off the list.
2) UCLA’s Tasha Schwikert won her second all-around title at the 2008 NCAA National Championships and competed for the 2001 World Gymnastics Championships winning team. We’re all for being a team player.
3) Kristina Baskett of the University of Utah is a seven-time All-American who competes in the all-around and is all-around hot.
4) Many thought Alicia Sacramone made a mistake in choosing to balance studying at Brown University with a competitive gymnastics career, but with a World Championships win in the floor routine in 2004, she could just stand around being her hot self and still be hugely accomplished.
5) In 2007, Karin Wurm scored a 9.9 out of 10 on the uneven bars in a gymnastics competition at Illinois-Chicago, thus helping the University of Arizona Wildcats score a victory. We wish Wurm would lend us a helping hand.
6) UF Gator tri-captain Corey Hartung gives spectators a Hart-on.
7) Southern Methodist University team member Nastia Liukin is a nasty little gymnast, having won four gold medals at the World Championships.
8) Ricki Lebegern of the University of Alabama became the SEC Balance Beam champ as a freshman. Now that’s what we call an Alabama Slammer.
9) As a twelve-time All-American, Tiffany Tolnay of the University of Georgia can only be described as insatiable.
10) According to the University of Utah website, Olympian Daria Bijak’s favorite book is Man and Boy, and this talented gymnast is a favorite amongst both men and boys.
