Here’s a bunch of Olympians posing nude

With the Olympics a few weeks away — come on, get here already, Games — the mag naturally took it upon itself to wrangle in a bunch of athletes who’ll be competing in London.

The premise and motive for the annual Body Issue of ESPN The Magazine confuses me.

Athletes are athletes, after all. They go through rigorous training and repetition to remain the best in the world at what they do. Naturally, they’re going to be toned and fit and make most of us feel like harmless sacks of goo because of it. Having one of these issues initially made sense, but basically we’re at the point where ESPN wants to sell flesh once a year, so have at it, I guess. Year to year, I’m not noticing anything evolutionary or different about the bodies picked; the faces are mostly all that changes.

With the Olympics a few weeks away — come on, get here already, Games — the mag naturally took it upon itself to wrangle in a bunch of athletes who’ll be competing in London. I’ve assembled seven of the photos ESPN put online Tuesday. Much credit to the photogs, who really deserve the spotlight here. While body tone remains similar to the layman, the style of the shots is pretty fantastic.

Plus, this, ironically, gives a face to a few competitors who barely see publicity as is. Here is a direct link to the vast slideshow , and all photos are credited to the magazine and specific photographer below.

The United States women’s volleyball team. I can’t help but wonder what the prep for this photo shoot was like. Does everyone hold a towel until the final second before shooting? (Art Streiber/ESPN The Magazine)
