ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue has become an annual tradition, and for good reason—because who doesn’t enjoy a little nudity every now and again? Especially when that nudity is coming your way courtesy of football players, swimmers, tennis players and boxers.
Those are just a few of the types of athletes showcasing their physiques in the magazine. Though all are built differently (thanks to a mixture of genetic precursors and differing sports), each bod is nothing short of remarkable. The list of athletes who weren’t too shy to strip down—and God bless them for that—includes Coco Ho, Megan Rapinoe, Venus Williams, Jamie Anderson and many, many more.
The discipline, dedication and sweat that goes into crafting these impressive bodies is something I, quite honestly, never want to experience—but I will gaze at their sculpted muscles all day long!
