This is definitely not smooth sailing!

The 2016 Summer Olympics are just 31 days away from setting sail in Rio de Janeiro, but the Brazilan city just suffered yet another scary setback.

See the snaps HERE!

Chris Mosier is making history… again!

Last year, the sports star became the first transgender individual to earn a spot on the US National Team of the gender he identifies with, rather than the one he was given at birth.

And now, the 35-year-old is the first out transgender athlete to be featured in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue!

The duathlete — who competes in events that feature both running and biking legs — posed completely nude for the spread, bravely baring his body in these shots (above)!

In a sneak peek of the upcoming issue, the inspirational athlete told ESPN that he had wanted to be in this specific issue for over a year, explaining that he finally feels comfortable with his body:

"I think the reason I felt so inspired to do it is that I'm finally at a place where I feel very comfortable with my body. And as a trans person, being in a body that didn't really fit me for 29 years, now I feel very comfortable in my own skin."

Chris even admitted that before he transitioned, he viewed fitness as a way to be more connected to his body, and would put on muscle in certain places to feel more masculine.

He says that's why being featured in this spread is such a moving moment for him:

Mutilated Body Parts Wash Ashore On Rio de Janeiro Beach… Just YARDS Away From Olympic Volleyball Courts!

We really hope this doesn't set the games up for failure…

Volleyball is usually one of the most anticipated events the Olympics have to offer thanks to the revealing athletic attire and beach-ready bodies… but the 2016 Summer Olympics may just bump the sport off the map.

That's because after a spiking number of other disasters — i.e. Juma the Jaguar being shot dead, Paralympian cyclist Liesl Tesch getting robbed at gunpoint, and a general fear of the Zika virus — Rio de Janiero just suffered its most grotesque setback yet.

According to reports, body parts were discovered on Copacabana Beach on Wednesday… just YARDS away from the Olympic Beach Volleyball Arena!

Apparently, a mutilated foot and a second unidentified piece of human remains were found by a runner, and while local police have no leads, this just serves as a another sad reminder of what we might be getting when the Olympics kick off on August 5.

Please stay safe if you're traveling down to Rio this Summer!
