Photography : Your Favorite Athletes In The Nude
ESPN celebrates athletes at the top of their physical game with its annual ‘Body Issue’. Included in this year’s edition are talents ranging from Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps and Australian yachtsman Jimmy Spithill to soccer player Omar Gonzalez. The athletes pose nude for ESPN and dish on how staying fit is important to their sport. Gonzalez shares, “If I get too muscular, I won’t be able to move as well. I like being a little smaller up top and a bit more agile for my height. I have to be able to change direction a lot. Maybe I’ll bulk up when I’m done with soccer, but I’ll probably just end up getting fatter and enjoying my downtime.”
