Searched Female Athletes 2013

Note: this article adopted from totalprosports.com.

Another year, another few bazillion Google searches. As is our annual tradition, we look back on the year to give everyone a fairly comprehensive overview of which female athletes were at the forefront of the public consciousness. Some of these women are here for their achievements on the field/court/track/whatever, and some make this list because they’re extremely easy on the eyes. Often, both.

Featured-405
We’re not here to judge, but just to report the numbers, put some faces to the name, then get back to our New Year’s Eve planning. So let us present our standard boilerplate language on the process here, then get to the women.
The Google search results listed with each athlete were yielded by searching the person’s name and limiting the results to the past 12 months. Also, we’re switching things up this year a little by including retired and semi-retired athletes. If they’re being Googled to a huge extent, we see that as relevance, and grounds for inclusion. If you don’t like it, write your local Congressman, Member of Parliament, or elected dogcatcher.
