17. Brandi Chastain
If you don’t believe us about Brandi’s muscle definition, all you have to do is find the picture of her celebrating her famous penalty winner in the 1999 FIFA World Cup. In a moment of what she called “momentary insanity, nothing more, nothing less” and what we call well earned, she ripped off her soccer jersey and fell to her knees in delight, revealing everything her sports bra wasn’t covering.
While everyone else was looking at her, um, sports equipment, we were jealously checking out her abs. Look at those things. So sharply defined you could grate cheese on them. She might be retired now, but those incredible muscles, that physical prowess, will be etched into our memories forever.
