The 50 Fittest Women (Sports Illustrated, 2014)

Who are the fittest athletes in sports? The magazine Sports Illustrated has put together its first-ever list of who they consider the current fittest female athletes in sports, in 2014.

Sport Illustrated editors and writers identified the fittest 50 women across all sports, using the same criteria as for the men, a rating system based on four unique criteria: speed, strength, agility and endurance.
