Natalya, though, is the first third-generation female wrestler around the world and has been competing popularly for over a decade. And she’s still going insanely strong with a lively year in the ring, simultaneously winning matches and funnily enough, getting her front teeth knocked out. This one in this list is one of the Skilful Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
9. Sania Mirza [@mirzasaniar]
At number 9 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Sania Mirza. Perhaps the most remarkable Indian tennis player and one of the absolutely biggest athletes in India, Mirza just celebrated 80 consecutive weeks with the title of No. 1 women’s doubles player in the world under her belt. She’s also an amazing force in the movement, fighting hard for Indian women’s rights, criticising government policies on domestic violence and sexual abuse. She also spoke out on the unbalanced pay scale in her sport. This one in this list is one of the Talented Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
8. Simone Biles [@simonebiles]
At number 8 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Simone Biles. Biles may be eighth on the list of most Instagram followers, but she’s the first on tremendously successful athletes for the year. The 19-year-old set an American record for most gold medals in a single Games occasion, becoming the most decorated female U.S. gymnast ever. She was also popularly nominated for a 2016 ESPY award for Best Female Athlete. That’s not all- she was shortlisted for TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year award—and she even published a book, Courage to Soar. This one in this list is one of the Marvelous Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
7. Natalie Eva Marie [@natalieevamarie]
At number 7 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Natalie Eva Marie. The pro wrestler had won some great matches in 2016, but her biggest news outside the ring happened to be(other than dying her iconic red hair dark this summer): The Total Divas star launched her own fashion line and the nonprofit foundation, the first of which donates part of its substantial proceeds to the latter. “My goal with this brand is to inspire and empower women to love themselves and build each other up. I’m gonna combine this with a nonprofit organization and give back to the women who need a little push in the right direction,” she says. This one in this list is one of the Splendid Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
6. Paige [@realpaigewwe]
At number 6 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Paige (Saraya-Jade Bevis). The Total Divas star has really a lot to brag about, holding the longest reign as the WWE’s NXT Women’s Champion. But the British wrestler has recently had a rough year, requiring neck surgery and unfortunately, failing drug tests with her employer (questionable for the prescriptions from her surgery). She has also been filling her feed with the general goofiness that makes Total Divas fans adore her. This one in this list is one of the Top Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
5. Brie Bella [@thebriebella]
At number 5 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Brie Bella. The pro wrestling bombshell has made a massive amount of announcements this year: First, in April, that she was semi-retiring from the ring. Later in October, she and her hubby were expecting a baby girl. So while her feed isn’t as heavy on the mind-boggling abs or mid-wrestle moments as it once used to be, Bella uses her ‘gram to promote philanthropic causes vital to her, particularly environmental and animal cruelty issues as well. This one in this list is one of the Best Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
4. Alex Morgan [@alexmorgan13]
At number 4 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Alex Morgan. In a New Year’s day post, Morgan said 2016 was going to be about pushing till the limits and making progress—that was indeed a tall order coming off winning the World Cup with the U.S. Women’s Team last year. In addition to leading America in the Rio Olympics and finishing the season as a suitable nominee for the 2016 Female Soccer Player of the year, Morgan joined her teammates right this year to file an action with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commissions. She has been accusing the US Soccer Federation of wage discrimination on behalf of the whole US Women’s National Team. This one in this list is one of the Amazing Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
3. Serena Williams [@serenawilliams]
At number 3 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have female tennis legend, Serena Williams. This year, Williams won Wimbledon— finally matching Steffi Graf’s record-tying 22 Grand Slam titles—set a record of spending 186 weeks ranked at No. 1. And while her athletic dominance is a constant on it’s own on its own, one of our favorite moments of 2016 was indeed the open letter she penned in Porter Magazine’s Incredible Women of 2016 issue last week to “all incredible women who strive for excellence.” She sent one of the best messages women everywhere should hear loud and clear: “We should never let this go unchallenged. We should always be judged by our achievements, not our gender.” This one in this list is one of the Awesome Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
2. Nikki Bella [@thenikkibella]
At number 2 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Nikki Bella. The top-followed pro wrestler Nikki Bella was sidelined quite a while for the first half of the year after having extensive surgery for a neck injury in January. But after 10 months of being completely out of the ring, the Total Divas star made a rather surprising appearance fighting at WWE’s SummerSlam. On Instagram, she said of the moment, “7 months ago when I had surgery I hoped for that day to come but was told it wouldn’t. The @wwe universe keeps me alive. You give me energy that no one else can give me. You make me want to be better.” This one in this list is one of the Fantastic Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
1. Ronda Rousey [@rondarousey]
At number 1 in this list of Top 10 Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017, we have Ronda Rousey. When Rousey graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue with her stunning physique, she proved once and for all that being strong and powerful is damn sexy—one of the most empowering highlights from her 2016, in our opinion. Rousey took all of 2016 off from fighting after losing her title at the end of last year. This one in this list is one of the Fabulous Instagram Followed Female Athletes 2017.
