Get ready to see a lot of Gretchen Bleiler on the cover of ESPN Magazine’s Body Issue. She’s appears on one of the four covers. Bleiler, who has twice before bared all in a magazine, had sworn never to do a nude shoot again but changed her mind when approached by ESPN.
“I wasn’t ready,” said Bleiler. “This time, I was saying yes because I wanted to do it. And I felt confident in my decision.”
Fellow Olympian Louie Vito also appears in the buff in the issue. If you ever wondered what kind of bodies pros are hiding under that baggy outerwear, Vito and Bleiler prove that snowboarders spend plenty of time in the gym.
