This Year's Olympians Are Also Sexy Super Models NSFW

This article contains images and/or video that the editors have flagged as NSFW (Not Safe for Work).

Is it just me or are the Olympians this year extra revealing? Each year ESPN releases a Body Issue which features men and women Olympians fully nude but this year other publications are also jumping on board with extra sexy Olympic imagery. For every image you have seen there are dozens of other photoshoots that also took place. In this video we go behind the scenes on a handful of these lesser known shoots featuring female athletes. 

In case you've missed them I've added a few of the most popular images below.

This article is pretty vile - the video posted up top is completely pointless, not needed here at all and none of the male images from the ESPN shoot have been included. Shame on you Lee Morris.

The last post we made, and linked to in this article, featured both men and women but as mentioned in the text above, this post was about the women's shoots. 
I was sent this video by multiple readers so I assumed more of you would like to see behind the scenes on some of these shoots.

I thought it was a good post man, keep up the good work here at Fstoppers. I learn so much everyday from this site.

Thanks Elliott :)

If I may, I think both have a point: while the video had, at some points, a stalkery note about it, the photos presented alongside it are stunning. you both win ^^

of course you think it's a good post

What is that meant to mean? Everyone is allowed their own view...right? If you don't like the post dont read it?

I find it quite telling that the previous article was posted by a woman (Lauren Jonas). If she had only posted the male olympian photographs then I would understand the point of your article but since she covers both the male and female olympian photographs from the same ESPN Body Issue I fail to see the point of your "article" and why it was even necessary. Did you make this just to satisfy yourself personally? or did you actually think that you needed to cover the same subject twice? I stand by what I said in my initial comment.

Who sh*t in your Organic Fair Trade Cheerios this morning?

 Don't understand why you're posting, except that you're attempting to appear somehow superior to others here.

Is your life so void of purpose that you feel compelled to actually complain that there aren't any images of male athletes?

Kindly return to your cave.

 Seems pretty relevant to me.

Adam, what's so vile about tastefully covered up, extremely well done images of female athletes? I find your offense very offensive. HA.

I didn't realize the female form was vile.

well done for missing my point completely

 What was your point as I think everybody missed it then? If its because only the women's images are posted I think Lee explained that and there is the original post with the men's images.

I guess the body issue of ESPN is pretty vile as well then? 

1. Its not like the naked bodies could have been a surprise when you clicked it, clearly says NSFW...
2. Links to the guys' images are there
3. Don't read the article or watch the video if you're clearly that disgusted by this whole thing
4. sorry on behalf of whoever s**t in your cereal this morning, give it a break man!

I'm have no complaint about this =D

Easy there Adam....shaming someone for a post of this nature?
Good post Lee, as always....

Ditto Elliot

I'm all for the message that strong is sexy. 

I also understand the viewpoint that images like this serve to marginalize the athletic achievements of these women by objectifying them... 

But let's face it: these bodies are rare works of art, earned through hard work, and worthy of being celebrated through photographic exploration. Some have approached the task more artistically than others, some just for shock value (the awkward group nude of the water polo players-really?). 

Either way, I think it's a move in the right direction to portray healthy women, who eat, as sexy.

Who is the gymnast they featured?

Alicia Sacramone is the gymnast

I think the photos are awesome.  The athleticism and dedication these people put into their physique is their resume, so why not express it the way the rest of us do with ours?  I don't find this to be exploitation or objectification at all. 

Was Michelangelo's David an objectification of the human form?

Who is this Adam Cross guy? Really!    I am sorry these F Stoppers guys are awesome.  

Some of them are nice, some of them are just normal. What I mean is that in some pictures, the fact that the athlete is nude doesn't bring anything more to the picture. 9second one, the golfer and the last one).

please do not show an artistic nude of Adam Cross. Thanks Lee :-)

The best shots in this series are the 3rd and 4th. That golf shot was a waste, 

Excellent photos, and I just can't possibly see why anyone wouldn't want to look at super-healthy human bodies, they are truly a marvel to behold (particularly the gymnast). Why are some people so eager to be offended?

another BTS from espn with a bit of lighting too... and interviews from the athletes.

Have to agree with the golfer shot. It's actually kind of weird and the tree or root in the background makes it look like she has a giant wood penis. Someone wasn't paying attention to that. Love the shots of the gymnast.
