I've seen all sorts of headlines mentioning gymnast Alicia Sacramone in the annual body issue of ESPN magazine, but I didn't think about any skaters until I opened up the issue and saw Evora and Ladwig doing a pairs spin. I remember that Evan was featured in it previously. Did anyone see this issue or see any interviews with Evora and Ladwig about why they decided to do it? It must have been kind of awkward to be skating and spinning together without clothing...

Any links to pics available? To answer your question, I think we already know that E/L are pretty courageous and risk-takers! Plus, it's about showing off the bodies of athletes, not porn.

Can't find E/L mentioned or shown here .... (maybe because they are not well known, as fs is not a mainstream sport)

Check out the thighs on Apolo Anton Ohno! (Still can't find E/L)

I want Gretchen Bleiler's abs!!

That picture of Helio Castronevas was cute and made me :lol:.

Apollo has the best male body of the lot, IMO.

Didn't see E/L, either.

The photo I saw makes it look like he has no butt, and I know that he couldn't possibly skate as fast as he does without a butt.:confused:

Wow!
I really wanna see that now! Maybe you're gonna actually have to buy the issue?
Maybe some kind soul can get it and scan for the rest of us.

I saw two pictures, a front view and side view. I think I saw a butt. :)

Amanda & Mark's picture is closer to the front of the magazine and part of a different section than the others. I have no idea if that part been put online like the other section but the photo is too big for my scanner so I can't help you guys.

I think his thighs are so huge, they're hiding his butt. :lol: The alignment of his lower back doesn't help either, since his butt is tucked under.

Heather, I think even a cut and paste job is better than nothing. :)

Mine too! I love his facial expression. :lol:

For me, Blake Griffin has the best body.

There's a lot of airbrushing going on for this issue. There is no way that many people exist on the planet with that much absolutely flawless skin for starters. Airbrushing artists must work a lot of overtime to make that issue happen.

The patch tool in Photoshop makes it a second-long job. :P

Good thing, or they'd never be able to produce that issue. No one has a single mole even....sure.
