More and more pictures are being leaked from ESPN THE MAGAZINE’s well-hyped “The Body Issue,” most notably cover models Gina Carano, Serena Williams, and amputee triathlete Sarah Reinertsen. And though the cleavage-heavy pictures of Carano and Williams (to say nothing of the heavy beefcake of Adrian Peterson and Dwight Howard) are certainly titillating, it seems that the magazine’s focus for the issue is going beyond mere cheap sex appeal.
That’s Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones, best known for being one hurdle away from gold in the Beijing Games. She’s also in the issue, and though she cuts a striking figure, we can’t put all of it above the fold for limited-buttcrack-related reasons. You can see her larger picture after the break. Her contribution to the issue, while not as high-profile as the cover athletes, has its own measure of controversy–not the least of which is the revelation about her weight. Looking at Jones’ gaunt face and lithe frame, what do you suppose it is?

Michael McCarthy of USA TODAY posts this extremely natural looking topless shot of Gina Carano for one of the six covers of ESPN THE MAGAZINE’s upcoming “The Body” Issue.
(A topless cover? Okay, that makes no sense)
Earlier today, I posted the Serena Williams fully-nude cover. That’s two of six covers. #3:
KIWI SKATES INTO SOFTCORE PORN W/PLAYBOY SPREAD: Remember Nicole Begg? She’s the anonymous Kiwi inline speedskater who put herself on the map by posing nude to promote her athletic career.
The New Zealand website STUFF reports that Begg is now ready to go full-blown softcore porn as she poses for PLAYBOY in an upcoming issue.
So she’s doing it to promote her career? We wonder if her friends had any idea she was going into pole dancing?
KIWI SKATER UNCOVERS BODY TO GAIN MEDIA COVERAGE: A news outlet in New Zealand reports that “International speedskating star Nicole Begg is hoping to lift her international profile and that of her sport by undressing.”
The 19-year-old blonde Begg’s “motivation is to raise her profile in the hope of attracting a sponsor and also to promote inline skating.”
Her dad reminds us a little of Jessica Simpson’s father (Joe “my daughter has double-d cups” Simpson) with his creepy comments: “Begg’s father Bill, a coach, said his daughter had also posed for the photographs because the official World Inline Cup magazine wanted a sexier image. ‘It got beach volleyball in the Olympics and that’s where we would love to be.’“
