ESPN Body Issue 2015: All The Pictures You Need to See

ESPN The Magazine‘s Body Issue has continually increased in popularity since its inception in 2009. Featuring athletes in their birthday suits, the yearly issue aims to not only celebrate chiseled bodies, but also healthy lifestyles and the uniqueness of the individuals.

Perhaps the most impressive part of the issue, year-in and year-out, is the variety of athletes who are featured. From then 77-year-old Gary Player to a pregnant Kerri Walsh-Jennings, the magazine truly catches a glimpse of athletes from all walks of life.

That once again rings true in 2015, which marks the seventh year the magazine has released the Body Issue. The issue has Olympians, it has NFL offensive linemen, it has players who compete in field hockey, archery and rugby. Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper, Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kevin Love, New York Giants stud wide receiver Odell Beckham and Olympians Natalie Coughlin (pictured), Amanda Bingson and Chantae McMillan grace the six different covers. Here’s a full list of every athlete featured.
