In Sweden, Hosk is better known for her basketball skills. "I took a 2-year break from modeling because I was a professional basketball player in Sweden," she said in an interview. "It's not anything like the WNBA... But, it was still very tough. We worked out probably like eight times a week, and then it was games on the weekend." She left the league because she felt too tied down to the basketball schedule.
