Each year, ESPN releases the Body Issue of their magazine, highlighting athletes with the tagline “bodies we want.” It’s hard to disagree. The athletes they choose rock six packs, ripped biceps and toned thighs. They are the people we in America idolize as modern day warriors, and they look absolutely stunning in ESPN’s photos. So take a gander at living gods and goddesses like Brittney Griner, Amanda Bingson, the offensive line of the Indianapolis Colts, Aly Raisman, Odell Beckham Jr., Natalie Coughlin, Kevin Love and many more.
