It isn’t something I keep track of so I’m always caught by surprise when I see images from the ESPN Body issue hit the internet. It usually inspires me to go to the site and have a look at the behind the scenes videos and listen to the comments made by the athletes. This year is no different.

One thing that always impresses me is the diversity of the athletes. Greg Norman is in his 60’s and in surprisingly good shape for it. There are a bunch of different athletes from different sports with just as diverse a range of body shapes and sizes.’

This year the American darling of the figure skating world, Adam Rippon is one of the athletes showcased. He made a lot of headlines for being the first openly gay U.S. athlete to be named for the Winter Olympics and then became much better known for his skill on the ice and his sass and cheekiness on social media and in interviews. Sally Field also tried to set him up with her gay son and I believe they were seen out together a few months later.

The thing that is not surprising at all when you see the photos above of Adam is that he has a Damn. Fine. Ass. Those figure skaters are always showcasing some great legs and booty and Adam is no exception. That butt looks rock hard and a lot of fun if I may be so crass. The photos are beautiful too and I’m sure it was fun for him and liberating to skate around nude.
