There can be no two ways to what an explosive combination women and sports make. Be it the ones who are actively setting their playing fields on fire or the ones ensuring that the matches go off without a hitch. We know what a sight it makes when the two come together.
More often than not, one can almost feel the fizzing energy flying off the playing arenas due to the blazing levels of testosterone clashing with the swag these ladies exude on the field.
While there exist no benchmarks for hotness we're trying to meet, suffice it to say that these women are in a league of their own. With looks great enough for players to miss that goal or skip that hit, these women are also great at doing a fine job as referees. They go by the book so there's no way any fault can escape their keen eyes and judgements.
They are there to ensure fair play and perhaps also motivate to up the game of the players and give it their best shot because who knows, they might have their eye on you.
So, here we bring you a curated list of 5 of the hottest female referees in the world. Whether they are actively officiating to date or have retired post their service, we give you an insight into who these women are:1. Chelsea Gurr
A New Zealand rugby official, Gurr has travelled around the world and made a mark for herself with her professionalism and well, also her good looks. She was initiated into the sport by her father who also happened to be a former coach and referee. She has been on duty at both women's matches as well as men's senior rugby leagues. She has a Diploma in Therapeutic Massage and we presume players might often just hurt themselves for a little intervention from her.2. Aurélie Sarà Bollier
Working as a full-time soccer referee at the Switzerland Amateur League, she is one hell of a woman. Athletic, bomb looks and an animal lover, she admitted that she does not see herself becoming a professional referee. So, for all of you who can't wait to see her in action, you might just have to fly down to one of the amateur games she's officiating. Regardless of the scale of her area of work, she does great justice to her duties.3. Proletina Velichkova
This 25-year old Bulgarian beauty began her career as a snooker referee in 2011. Since then, she has been on duty at multiple European Tour events in Bulgaria, which include televised matches involving top players such as Judd Trump and John Higgins. One of her career highlights was officiating at an exhibition between Ronnie O'Sullivan and Jack Lisowski just two months after she started refereeing in 2011. She sure looks like the girl-next-door.4. Claudia Romani
Perhaps one of the greatest beauties of them all, Claudia is an Italian model who has graced the pages of some of the major publications such as GQ and Maxim. However, it was in 2014 that she made the career-changing move and decided to become a referee. She qualified to referee both Series A and B matches in her home country after qualifying in the exam. She made headlines when she posed in AC Milan's gear, causing people to wonder if she could be impartial.5. Elena Tambini
This Italian bombshell was a part-time model apart from being a full-time referee in lower league Italian matches. She has officiated multiple matches and stood out as a budding referee during her tenure. However, she gave up her on-field career to get behind the camera as a sports show journalist and a host.
She's gorgeous, knows her game and delivers to perfection. We can only imagine the number of players who wouldn't have felt the pinch on getting a yellow card from her.
Tell us, don't you agree that these women are absolute divas both on and off the field?
