With today being the Fourth of July, citizens will be celebrating all things American. Everything from our freedom, to our democracy, to our ridiculous obesity rate and love of fine American cuisine. Over here at Complex, we want to celebrate the holiday by honoring the two things that we consider the most American: Sports x hot women. That's right, we're bringing you the hottest female athletes that call this great country home. Lindsey VonnSerena WilliamsAllison Stokke, and Skylar Diggans (we see you, Weezy) just to name a few. So, as you prepare to stuff your face full of meat (II) today, check out the 30 Hottest Female American Athletes of All Time. America the beautiful, indeed…

30. Sasha Cohen

Sport: Figure Skating
Years: 2000-2010
Hometown: Westwood, Calif.
This three-time World Championship medalist took home silver at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. She also caught the eye of snowboarder Shaun White, who hit her with this line: "I'm hoping Sasha dates gold medalists." Nothing really ended up developing, though. Cold as ice? Nah, just classy.

29. Natalie Gulbis

Sport: Golf
Years: 1997-Present
Hometown: Sacramento, Calif.
Natalie only has one LPGA win but she's still one of the top earners on the tour. Hmm...we wonder why. Hint: There's two of 'em staring at you right now.

28. Gabrielle Reece

Sport: Volleyball
Years: 1989-2000
Hometown: La Jolla, Calif.
In the early to mid '90s Gabrielle dominated beach volleyball winning Offensive Player of the Year in 1994 and 1995 and she was the kills leader from 1993-1996. Today, she's retired from the game and spends more time with her fam. But don't front on the classics, kid. We'd definitely still smash. Hot milfs, FTW.

27. Alicia Sacramone

Sport: Gymnastics
Years: 2002-Present
Hometown: Winchester, Mass.
At the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Alicia took home a silver medal. Yeah, gymnasts are known to be on that jailbait steez (word to that year's Chinese national team) but Alicia's actually 24, so no Datelining here. Phew!

26. Alex Morgan

Sport: Soccer
Years: 2008-Present
Hometown: Diamond Bar, Calif.
Hope Solo got all the shine during the World Cup this year, but Alex Morgan has that girl-next-door hottness about her that we can't front on. At 22, Alex was the youngest member last year's World Cup squad. So, you can expect to see more of the lovely Miss Morgan for years to come.

25. Kristi Leskinen

Sport: Skiing
Years: 2004-Present
Hometown: Uniontown, Pa.
With all the skiing attire on, who would've thought that a hottie like Kristi was under all of that. Oh yeah, she's got skills, too. She took home a bronze medal at 2005 Winter X Games and is the first woman ever to pull off a rodeo 720. We don't know what the hell that is, but we'd be down to try it with Miss Leskinen.

24. Miesha Tate

Sport: MMA
Years: 2007-Present
Hometown: Tacoma, Wash.
In the octagon, very few would fuck with the former Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion. Outside of it, that's a whole other story. We feel stuck in an oddly dope predicament.

23. Kim Glass

Sport: Indoor Volleyball
Years: 2008-Present
Hometown: Los Angeles
Nobody rocks the volleyball spandex sporty-look quite like Kim Glass. She joined the U.S. National team in 2007, and won a silver medal with the team at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. She also unsuccessfully tried out for America's Next Top Model five times. Ain't that the same show had a tranny contestant on there? Not that we watch or anything...

22. Amanda Beard

Sport: Swimming
Years: 1996-Present
Hometown: Newport Beach, Calif.
Amanda has collected 21 medals in international competition (five gold, 13 silver, and three bronze). Now she makes cake through modeling and has appeared in SI and Playboy. So, you already know (especially if you peep the photo), Miss Beard has racks in every sense of the word.

21. Allyson Felix

Sport: Track and Field
Years: 2004-Present
Hometown: Los Angeles
They may not get as much shine as other female athletes, but you certainly can't front on women in track and field. Allyson brought home gold for team USA in the 4x400 meter relay at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Also, she's currently one of only seven female athletes fully sponsored by Nike. After peeping some of her ad campaigns, only one song came to mind.

20. Allison Baver

Sport: Speed Skating
Years: 2006-Present
Hometown: Reading, Pa.
This Penn State graduate put on for her city by bringing home the bronze medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Last year, Allison was rumored to be with Dwight Howard. Yup, that kryptonite body would make any man weak.

19. Candace Parker

Sport: Basketball
Years: 2005-Present
Hometown: St. Louis
We love Candace to death but have to give her the SMH-look since she's married to Shelden "Cauli Buds" Williams. The scrub athletes with hot women phenomenon continues...

18. Heather Mitts

Sport: Soccer
Years: 1999-Present
Hometown: Cincinnati
She's been part of the U.S. national team since 1999 and has collected two gold medals in her career. Heather is a pro at handling the ball with no hands. *cues the soundtrack*

17. Danica Patrick

Sport: Racing
Years: 2005-Present
Hometown: Beloit, Wis.
Danica has changed the game. From competing with the guys in racing to her getting endorsement cake in those GoDaddy commercials. Plus, she knows how to work the stick. What's not to love?

16. Anastasia Ashley

Sport: Surfing
Years: 2005-Present
Hometown: San Clemente, Calif.
Forget the porn name, ma's work attire is a bikini. #nuffsaid

15. Michelle Waterson

Sport: MMA
Years: 2007-Present
Hometown: Colorado Springs
Michelle splits her time between kicking ass in the octagon and modeling. Yup, yet another hottie that would make us tap out and love it. MMA chicks, FTW!

14. Serena Williams

Sport: Tennis
Years: 1995-Present
Hometown: Compton, Calif.
The ultra-thick tennis star has made a career out of rocking the sexiest outfits and dominating the competition (13 Grand Slams in singles competition). Yup, we're down for a smashing good time. Emphasis on smashing.

13. Blair O'Neal

Sport: Golf
Years: 2008-Present
Hometown: Macomb, Ill.
Blair is a professional golfer and model. So, basically she knows how to stroke balls and look good while doing it. Kinda like your favorite porn stars of all time, right?

12. Ashley Force Hood

Sport: Drag Racing
Years: 2004-Present
Hometown: Yorba Linda, Calif.
Ashley Force Hood. What a name! We're guessing she's a ride-or-die chick who can save us money on mechanical repairs? Niiice. *Loso voice*

11. The Bella Twins

Sport: Wrestling
Years: 2007-Present
Hometown: San Diego
The Bella Twins are two of the Hottest Women in WWE History. You already know: The best things in life come in twos. Don't say we never did anything for ya.

10. Malia Jones

Sport: Surfing
Years: 1992-
City/town: Loma Linda, Calif.
With a mix as hot as Malia's (she's of Hawaiian, German, Spanish-Filipino, and English descent), she is living proof that America can be a beautiful melting pot. And we could always hit her up when our longboard needs waxing.

9. Jenn Brown

Sport: Softball
Years: 1999-2003
Hometown: Gainesville, Fla.
Jenn Brown received a softball scholarship from Florida, graduated summa cum laude, and now holds down a sports reporter position for ESPN. In other words, she knows how to handle balls, the head game is crazy, and she puts that work in. Wifey material!

8. Tanith Belbin

Sport: Figure Skating
Years: 2002-2010
Hometown: Ann Arbor, Mich.
Though this ice queen was born in Ontario, she successfully petitioned to become a U.S. citizen prior to the 2006 Winter Olympics. She later competed for the U.S. and won a silver medal. Fall back Canada, your girl chose us. #isthatyourchick? #pimphandisstrong

7. Skylar Diggins

Sport: Basketball
Years: 2000-Present
Hometown: South Bend, Ind.
Yup, this is the fine Notre Dame guard that caused Weezy to rock a women's basketball jersey at a concert and proclaim: "I'm in Indiana looking for Skylar Diggins." Uhh, need some Gatorade, my dude?

6. Lindsey Vonn

Sport: Skiing
Years: 2002-Present
Hometown: St. Paul, Minn.
Lindsey took home a gold and bronze medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. All that success hasn't gone to hear head though. She's still the type of girl who'll take a face full of the white stuff from time to time.

5. Gina Carano

Sport: MMA
Years: 2006-2009
Hometown: Dallas
We're not going to lie. There is something oddly hot about a woman who could kick your ass and look good doing it. Pain is love! Hold your head, Ja...

4. Allison Stokke

Sport: Track and Field
Years: 2006-2011
Hometown: Newport Beach, Calif.
A couple years ago this track and field athlete from Cal created a buzz on the Interwebs as that ridiculously hot girl handling the big pole. All SFW material, of course.

3. Lori "Lolo" Jones

Sport: Track and Field
Years: 2006-Present
Hometown: Des Moines, IA
You may know Lolo as the ridiculously hot track star who recently admitted that she's a virgin. Well, she's actually pretty damn good at track, too. She has two World Championship indoor gold medals for the 60 meter hurdle competition and she's looking to bring home more hardware at this year's Olympic Games in London. We're rooting for her. She's kind of like the female Tim Tebow minus the annoying personality and penis, of course.

2. Bianca Cruz

Sport: Softball
Years: 2002-2006
Hometown: Phoenix
This former Arizona State softball star turned model made headlines last year as the WAG of MLB scrub Jason Pridie. C'mon, ma. Looking like that and you settled for someone with a .226 career batting average?

1. Stacy Keibler

Sport: Wrestling
Years: 1999-2011
Hometown: Baltimore
Is Stacy Keibler a real athlete? Well, is wrestling a real sport? Just ask this dude. Now that that's settled, salute to the Hottest Female American Athlete of All Time!
