The Female Athletes In ESPN Mag’s “Body Issue” (Photos)



Just now, ESPN the Magazine released their collection of tasteful nude athlete photos for their “Body Issue”. Our instant reaction: it turned out great. Above, we’ve highlighted some of the female athletes featured in the Mag (you can see the whole collection here) and we think the two best photos belong to Alicia Sacramone, who is naked on a high beam, and Natasha Hastings, who is naked with sneakers on. But that’s just our opinion.

We’ll have more on the “Body Issue” today, including some stuff on the behind-the-scenes videos and a post on two ridiculous photos that need to be discussed. But our instant reaction to this operation, on the whole, is a good one. Although, to be honest, we can’t imagine a scenario where we object to a collection of photos of naked gymnasts and sprinters.

    Oh wow, that’s great! $69 an hour? Oh my God! I clicked on the link. Thank you for being such a good person and posting to this sports site about your best friend’s mom’s job. Now go shut your hands in a car door repeatedly and don’t ever type on the Internet again, m’kay?

    “Tasteful”?  or Tasty!?

    I love how the photographers don’t allow any of them to smile- as if to say “this is serious business, not like Playboy.”

    Please.

    i think what SI is going is great.  it’s showing us all that women can be great athletes too.  they’re not just pretty faces and bodies to look at.

    If you look at just about any nude from the past, the subject is rarely smiling.  Get you puritanical mind out of the gutter, the nude is a legitimate art form.   The human form is from god, so it must be good.
