In 2009, ESPN The Magazine came up with an idea to feature 30 athletes, men and women, totally naked but without any nudity. It is a fine line to border but they found a way to do it with class and style.
Four years later and 50 athletes down, the issue has become a yearly issue. The original idea was to rival Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit issue and it has done that and more. It has become something we look forward to every year now. We are excited to hear which athletes will pose for the issue.
The 2012 issue hits newsstands on July 13th so we have put together a list of the hottest photos from the women that made the cut.
