The 2012 Maxim Hot 100 came out this week, and it turns out that more than a few of the ladies listed either play sports or have some serious sports connections.

Eight Of Maxim Hot 100 Ladies With Sports Ties Slideshow


No. 93, La La Anthony

The former MTV personality has been connected at the hip with now-husband and New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony for years.


No. 87, Paulina Gretzky

The daughter of the greatest hockey player of all time has made waves that her dad hasn't exactly loved, but that hasn't stopped her from continuing to rock the boat.


No. 86, Caroline Wozniacki

One of tennis' best, Wozniacki is still in search of her first major. She's also the girlfriend of golf superstar Rory McIlroy.


No. 66, Alex Morgan

The darling of US Women's Soccer, Morgan caught plenty of attention with a stellar 2011 World Cup performance as the team's super substitute.


No. 42, Brooklyn Decker

She's graced the cover of the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and she's married to American tennis star Andy Roddick.


No. 39, Kate Upton

This ranking seems criminally low, if only for the fact that this has been the year of Upton, no? She's been on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and has been spotted at every sporting event in New York City.


No. 32, Rihanna

After a very public split with Chris Brown, Rihanna dated MVP candidate and Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Matt Kemp.


No. 1, Bar Refaeli

Like a few others on this list, she built up a lot of career momentum with her work in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, but she steals the spotlight this year with Maxim's top spot.
