Hottest Female Athlete

ESPN's Hottest Female Athlete is a yearly online contest run by ESPN.com. Readers of the website vote from a sample of female athletes for the most attractive among them. Past winners are not eligible for reselection.



Local Pages

ESPN started local chapters of its website in response to the decline of local sports coverage available as newspapers continue to go out of business across the country. Each page covers local pro and college teams using locally known writers and the city's ESPN Radio affiliate. Speculation is that each site will eventually expand into high school sports coverage.
