6 Athletes Bare it All in ESPN’s Body Issue

The seventh annual Body Issue of ESPN The Magazine is unveiled, and the professional athletes are baring it all! This year’s issue showcases six nude and seminude athletes in six different covers. The featuring athletes include the Washington Nationals Bryce Harper, Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Love, NY Giants Odell Beckham Jr., Track and Field athletes Chantae McMillan and Amanda Bingson, and U.S. Swimmer Natalie Coughlin. 

All of the athletes featured have one thing in common: domination. They continue to reveal their athleticism and work ethic on and off the court and field. Their strong physiques are the result of healthy dieting and persistent training. Each individual was interviewed and gave some pretty inspiring insight on their athletic journey. Kevin Love stated, “I’d like to play until I’m 40. And I’d like it to be my choice.” Chantae McMillan also told Body Issue, “I don’t look in the mirror and think I’m slim, I look in the mirror and I’m like, ‘Whoa, Beast!’” These athletes inspire us to take control of our bodies. If we aren’t satisfied with how we look, then it’s in our power to make a change!
The Body Issue made its first debut back in 2009. The Editor in Chief, Chad Millman, wants the magazine to keep evolving, “Our goal is for the issue to continue to evolve year after year. The ability to capture both strength and vulnerability of these extraordinary athletes through such powerful images and intro-perspective interviews is incredibly moving.” This year’s issue became available online on July 6. Be sure to get yourself a copy! The magazine will hit newsstands on Friday, July 10.
