Zeke, Isaiah, Wozniacki +more take the cover of ESPN's Body Issue.
ESPN has officially revealed all 23 of the cover athletes for ESPN The Magazine's "Body Issue," which includes Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki and six members of the U.S. women’s hockey team.
Baring it all for the 9th annual Body Issue might've made some of the athletes uncomfortable, but not Ezekiel Elliott.
Per Sports Illustrated,
“Since I was younger, I’ve never really liked to wear shirts. And I still don’t like to wear shirts, so, I mean, you’ll find me with my shirt off a lot,” he told ESPN.
Also in the upcoming issue, Isaiah Thomas, who stands all of 5'9, reveals how he always wanted to be tall and how he went about trying to stretch himself out.
“Nobody’s tall in my family,” he told ESPN. “My father is 5-7, so I knew at a young age I wouldn’t be that tall. But when I was younger, I always wanted to be taller. There was a pullup bar in my mom’s basement, and I would do a lot of pullups down there. My mom will tell you that I’d be on there all the time trying to stretch myself out.”
ESPN The Magazine's annual "Body Issue" will debut on ESPN.com on July 5th and hit newstands on July 7th. Check out each of the cover athletes below.
