8. Elysia Ulrich
Unlike most professional sports personalities, Elysia Ulrich is not only astoundingly tough; she's smart as well. The dirt bike extraordinaire is about to embark on a degree in international business, and still rides at breakneck speeds whenever possible despite having suffered a broken back. Suffice to say, she must be made of stronger stuff than half of us, and hotter stuff too: her picture perfect bikini clad body is cropping up more and more on the internet as her fame grows.
