Olympic medalist Julia Mancuso took a break from modeling in her signature lingerie line, “Kiss My Tiara,” to pose nude for ESPN’s Body Issue. Other athletes like Kelly Slater, Evan Lysacek, and the entire US Women’s Water Polo team were also photographed naked for the magazine.

The project is a celebration of athletic bodies, titled Bodies We Want. Mancuso’s résumé fits the bill— she was the first-ever “Lange Girl Athlete,” and has starred in a commercial for 24 Hour Fitness.

On her Facebook page, Mancuso mentioned her “latest project off the hill. It was definitely a new and different experience,” she says, “but I like how ESPN portrays humility in our most vulnerable form.” Check out the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot.
