ESPN Body Issue 2012 {Pictures}

espn body issue cover 2012It’s almost here, ESPN’s Body Issue for 2012.  If you haven’t already heard about it, here is ESPN’s description:

It’s okay to stare. That’s what The Body Issue is here for. Each year, we stop to admire the vast potential of the human form. To unapologetically stand in awe of the athletes who’ve pushed their physiques to profound frontiers. To imagine how it would feel to inhabit those bodies, to leap and punch and throw like a god. To … well, gawk. So go ahead; join us.

We put together a collection of a lot of the past females that were a part of the ESPN Bodies We Love theme below.  Although the ESPN bodies we love may be very close to the edge, it’s certainly interesting. We hope you like it!

The 2012 Body Issue will be here June 11, 2012.  There have been a few glimpses like the one above
