ESPN’s Body Issue Featuring Some of Bixler’s Most Talented Partners
ESPN’s annual publication “Body Issue” makes us realize what it really takes to be a great athlete. Each year the magazine releases the issue with images of the most talented athletes out there showcasing their bodies and at the same time showing some insight on the struggles each athlete faces in their respective sport. The Body Issue is an attempt to showcase athletes in their element, unretouched and just unapologetically themselves.
This year the magazine released its 11th, last and final print edition of the “Body issue” that will reach the newsstands and book stores. Yes, you read it right! This year’s “Body Issue” will be the last of its kind, although the magazine will continue to publish the edition annually, but only in digital form on ESPN’s website.
Here are the highlights of this year’s “Body Issue”, featuring some of our most talented partners:
1. Myles Garrett
23-year-old, Cleveland Browns defensive end said he’s always striving for more and wants to be at his best physical appearance.
2. Evander Kane
The 28-year-old San Jose Sharks Left-Wing said, “If everybody had the same equal opportunity in the world, whether you’re black, Asian, Indian, white, whatever, to play hockey, I think you’d see a lot more diverse league.”
3. Brooks Koepka
The 29-year-old, World No. 1; two-time U.S. Open and PGA Championship winner admitted that he always wanted to be in the “Body Issue”.
