ESPN The Magazine has released its annual ‘Body Issue’, which showcases the strength, beauty and spirit of athletes across the globe.
The featured athletes put their bodies through intense training, and each year, the publication shines a spotlight on these dedicated souls to recognize their efforts.
This year’s issue includes CrossFit women’s champion Katrin Davidsdottir, US women’s national soccer team player Kelley O’ Hara and NFL player Michael Thomas.
ESPN’s vice president Alison Overholt tells POPSUGAR that the 2019 issue is a special one, as it’s the final print edition of ESPN The Magazine. Overholt hopes that readers can learn more about the lives and stories of the talented athletes showcased.

When you don’t fit into other people’s world, create the one you want to see. That’s why I said ‘yes’ to @espn Body Issue. In a culture that makes it is so darn hard to accept difference, I look at all my imperfections and see: A survivor. A fighter. A warrior. #ESPNBody pic.twitter.com/x5br7lH05R— Scout Bassett (@ScoutBassett) September 5, 2019
