Sports is a rigorous field to be in. People in this field work hard, sweating blood to make their bodies fit. Following a diet, hitting the gym, making sure that they hydrate themselves enough, they do it all.

ESPN realized that it's time to recognize the efforts sportspeople make to get in proper shape. They made people from across different sports fields to pose naked for their cover page for an annual issue called The Body Issue. These sportspeople are as bare as they can be, in their natural environment. And they look absolutely stunning and powerful.
