Lindsey Vonn isn't the only Winter Olympian unafraid to pose in her birthday suit for a sports magazine. Vonn dead ringer, the gold medal snowboarder Jamie Anderson, is just one of the big-name athletes in the buff in the latest edition ESPN Magazine’s “The Body” issue, on sale Friday.

Joining the naked slopestyle star are naked tennis ace Venus Williams, naked swimmer Michael Phelps, and 19 other naked star athletes.

“This year’s collection of exceptional athletes and stunning photography showcases an array of sports and body types,” said editor in chief Chad Millman. “It inhabits our mission to pay tribute to these athletes’ bodies and all they are capable of.”

Now in its fifth year, The Body Issue has featured everyone from Venus’s sister Serena Williams to Kerri Walsh Jennings (who posed 8 months pregnant) and golf legend Gary Player. 

So maybe Vonn joins Anderson and adds ESPN to her Sports Illustrated cover next year? 

Could happen.
