Every year ESPN puts together an extremely revealing series of photos for their Body Issue that show what top athletes look like in the buff.
As always their photographers do an incredibly good job of showing the beauty of the physical forms while somehow managing to keep the pics SFW.
It’s not about the naughty bits here, it’s about seeing the human body in peak physical condition, and how the different muscle groups have been conditioned for the athlete’s sport of choice.
This year’s shoot includes Brittney Griner from the Phoenix Mercury, olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin, Bryce Harper from the Washington Nationals and the Indianapolis Colts offensive line, just to name a few.
Whether you admire the attractive physiques, admire the photographer's dedication to hiding the naughty bits, or recognize their value as art reference one thing's for certain- these are some mighty good looking pics!
