There is often a predisposition to imagine athletic body types in a particular way -- the image of a youthful, tall and muscular figure springs to mind. Howard Schatz's photos from his book Athlete shows us that athletic body types come in a lot of different forms.

These photos show the world's best athletes from a wide array of sports, from the well-known -- hockey, basketball, soccer, gymnastics and boxing -- to the lesser known sumo wrestling, table tennis, handball, hammer throw and discus. By placing them side by side in the same style of clothing, the photographer allows the audience to easily and objectively compare and contrast these different athletic body types.

Howard Schatz's photos demolish our old preconceived notions of athletic body types and ushers in a new image of the athletic form.
