It may not rival the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, but the ESPN Body Issue has gotten lots of attention since launching in 2009. It’s a pretty big deal every year to see which athletes have stripped down to show off their fit bods. Of course, it’s always a mix of male and female athletes. We tend to prefer the females. It’s a sexy round-up of athletic ladies, too. ESPN has showcased all kinds of babes and all kinds of bods. We’re previewing the 2012 issue here with surfer Maya Gabeira and sailing gal Anna Tunnicliffe–but we’re also looking back at some of our other favorite sexy shots! Check out fit femmes like Hope Solo, Julie Chu, Sylvia Fowles, Suzy Hotrod, and more. Then get primed to race down to the newsstand for your own copy of the ESPN Body Issue, 2012!
