ESPN The Magazine Features A Transgender Athlete In Its Body Issue For The First Time Ever! See The Pics!

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:

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

Filed under: Spread 'EmSkinBodyOlympicsGymnastics

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???
