The bodies are back—and history is being made!
In honor of its annual Body Issue, ESPN The Magazine debuted its slate of athletic cover stars for 2018. Spoiler alert: there was no clothing involved.
From a 22-year-old former Rookie of the Year to a retired, three-time Super Bowl champion, this year's issue features 10 athletes ranging in shape, age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and sport.
Among those celebrated on a cover this year are Adam Rippon, an Olympic figure skater and the first openly gay United States male athlete to win a medal in a Winter Olympics, as well as retired football star Jerry Rice and all-time NCAA home run leader Lauren Chamberlain.
As a milestone moment in the magazine's history, one of the covers also features couple Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe—the first openly gay couple to be included on a Body Issue cover.
