Olympic Gymnast Aly Raisman Poses Naked For ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue!

Olympic gymnast, Aly Raisman, stars in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue!

Wow! She looks amazing!

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman is one of a few sports stars featured in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue this year — and she wasn't holding anything back!

In her shot, the 21-year-old gold medalist is completely naked showing off her fit frame, all while posing gracefully with rings on the low beam.

That's quite the feat!

Though there's another side to Aly, which she reveals in the interview:

"Every day is a challenge. Even though at the 2012 Olympics we were so happy to win the gold medal, every day is not like that. I think people don't understand that; people don't see that side of the sport – the frustration, how much it takes a toll on your body, and mentally as well."

We can only imagine!

But she hasn't ruled out the next Summer Olympics! She confessed:

"I'll be 22 in the Olympics year. If I make the team, I'll be the oldest U.S. gymnast. My body is a little bit more achy than it was before, but at the same time I feel like I'm smarter now and able to understand the recovery process. I always joke that I'm 21 going on 50."

Older, but clearly wiser! And she's even applied that to her own body confidence!

She said:

"I've never had an eating disorder, and I'm proud of that… instead of being insecure about my muscles, I've learned to love them. I don't even think of it as a flaw anymore because it's made me into the athlete that I am. I think imperfection is beauty."

Aly is speaking the truth!

Love this spread and her interview! What are your thoughts???

Chris Mosier Just Made History As The First Transgender Athlete To Make Their Identified Gender's USA National Team!

Chris Mosier just made history!

That's because after landing a spot on the USA National Duathlon Team on Saturday, Chris became the first transgender athlete to make it onto the team of the gender they identify; as opposed to the gender assigned when they were born.

The 35-year-old finished 37th out of 117 competitors, but only needed to be one of the top eight times for men aged 35-38 to make the team… and he did!

By the way, for those of you who are a little confused as to what a Duathalon is, it's a sporting event similar to a triathlon only it consists of running, cycling, and then another leg of running.

[ Related: Transgender High School Senior Wins Prom Queen! ]

We think it's a little ridiculous that this is only the first time something like this has ever happened, but we're glad Chris has now opened the door for his fellow trans athletes.

Chris and the rest of the USA Team will next compete at the 2016 World Championship Duathalon in Spain, so that just means he's got a little more time to train even harder.

Congrats again, Chris!

Now go win us the gold!

Oscar Pistorius — The South African Athlete Convicted Of Murdering His Girlfriend — Could Already Be Up For Release! WHAT?!

| Filed under: Legal MattersViolenceOlympics

no title

Well, it looks like the scales of justice are about to tilt in a controversial way!

Oscar Pistorius, the former Olympic athlete convicted of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013, might soon be getting out of jail!

Back in October, Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison for "culpable homicide," which is a South African law somewhat similar to manslaughter here in the United States.

The 28-year-old athlete killed Steenkamp on Valentine's Day, 2013, in their home, claiming he thought an intruder was in the bathroom instead of his girlfriend.

[ Photos: Other Celebrities Who Have Been Linked To Murder! ]

South African law dictates that Pistorius must serve at least one-sixth of his sentence, which would be ten months' time.

The parole board is now recommending that Pistorius be released on August 21, 2015 — ten months to the day after he was sentenced in the case.

What do U think — should Pistorius face more punishment after being found guilty of killing Steenkamp?
