Inspired By: ESPN Magazine's "The Body Issue" 2015

Every year, I feature my favorite images from ESPN Magazine's "The Body Issue", where they showcase a diverse range of athlete's bodies.

I love this series because they always include a range of physics, but no matter if they are Size Zero or Size 16, they all have one thing in common: they're at the top of their game, and are proud of the bodies which have allowed them to get there.

From top to bottom:

Aly Raisman, gymnast

Natalie Coughlin, swimmer
Amanda Bingsom, hammer throw
Todd Clever, rugby
Chantae McMillan, heptathlete
Gabrielle Reece and Laird Hamilton, beach volleyball and surfing
