Hallelujah! The day that sports fans have been waiting all year for is finally here … ESPN The Magazine has released their annual Body Issue and as you can see below, we are able to feast our eyes on a plethora of nekkid athletic flesh. As you may know, ESPN The Magazine releases an annual Body Issue that features artistic photographs of professional athletes fully nude. The results are usually very … exciting. Click below to see some photos of some of the athletes featured in this year’s Body Issue.
ESPN The Magazine launches its fourth “Body Issue” — an annual celebration of the athletic form — featuring 27 talents from across the world of sports and six special covers showcasing: Rob Gronkowski, Jose Bautista, Tyson Chandler, Daniela Hantuchova, Candace Parker and Ronda Rousey. The Mag provides Front Row a sneak peek of the Body Issue arriving for subscribers this week and on newsstands Friday.

I can’t even tell you the last time I even thought about picking up an issue of ESPN The Magazine … oh wait, yes, I can … last year when the 2011 Body Issue was released ;) What I love most about this issue of the mag is not the sexiness (altho, that is a huge draw) but the artistic way each athlete is presented. Most times, their sport specialty is also featured in a very artistic way. These are beautiful images, don’t you think? Did any of your fave athletes make it into this year’s issue of the Body Issue?
