These Athletes Took Off Their Clothes To Show The Raw Power Of The Human Body.
In 2009, ESPN Magazine first released The Body Issue, a special edition of the magazine that featured dozens of athletes practicing their sport. These photos were different than most, though, because all of the athletes in The Body Issue are photographed naked.
The images are stunning, and meant to celebrate the power and strength that comes with having a top athletes body. The current 2015 issue features athletes from all over the world, including Olympic gold medalists, American football stars, and even an archer. Check out the epic photos below.
Stan Wawrinka, tennis player and the 2015 French Open champion.
Dallas Friday, a pro wakeboarder and four-time X Games gold medalist.
Chantae McMillan, heptathlete for the USA track & field team.
Kevin Love, a power forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Indianopolis Colts offensive linemen Jack Mewhort, Anthony Castonzo, and Todd Herramans.
