ESPN: The Magazine releases its annual "Body Issue" July 7th, and a handful of former Badgers will grace the pages wearing almost nothing at all. U.S. Women's Hockey team standouts Brianna Decker, Meghan Duggan, Alex Rigsby, and three of their teammates will pose nude, but will be positioned in a way that makes the pictures appropriate for all audiences. Players will have some hockey equipment to use as props- but not much else.
ESPN releases the issue to showcase different body types of athletes from a wide variety of sports- everything from the NFL to adaptive sports.
Former Badger and current U.S. Women's Hockey team member Hilary Knight tweeted her approval with the #StrongIsBeautiful. Knight was featured in the 2014 "Body Issue."
