Nineteen athletes are going to bare it all for ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue. Check out who will be naked on the newstand.


What I love about the body issue is that they get all kinds of body types. Here are a few of the athletes you’ll see in the special issue:

Nathan Adrian, Olympics/swimming
Jake Arrieta, MLB
Antonio Brown, NFL
Emma Coburn, Olympics/steeplechase
Courtney Conlogue, surfing
Elena Delle Donne, WNBA
Ryan Dungey, motocross
Adeline Gray, Olympics/wrestling
Greg Louganis, Olympics/diving- (oldest athlete featured in this issue- 56 years old)
Conor McGregor, MMA
Von Miller, NFL
Chris Mosier, duathlon
Nzingha Prescod, Olympics/fencing
Christen Press, soccer
April Ross, Olympics/beach volleyball
Allysa Seely, paratriathlete
Claressa Shields, Olympics/boxing
Dwyane Wade, NBA
Vince Wilfork, NFL
Surprisingly, Dwyane Wade who’s in ridiculous shape admitted that he was self-conscious about his body and being naked in front of others. He’s actually turned down doing the Body Issue for the last 7 years. One of his biggest insecurities is his belly button. He has an outie and as a result he always wore a shirt when he’d go swimming and never showed his stomach in the locker room. The online version of the Body Issue will be available July 6th and the paper version is out July 8th.
