If someone asked you to pose naked for millions to see, would you do it? If you had a body as rock hard and toned as Louie Vito and Gretchen Bleiler, your answer would most likely be yes.
Today, ESPN: The Magazine released a few tantalizing photos from their latest issue, The Body Issue, which features photos of top athletes sporting everything that their mama gave them, buck naked in their birthday suits. Olympic snowboarders, Gretchen Bleiler and Louie Vito are among the athletes featured and have several shots in the magazine which hits newsstands on October 7th.
In a behind-the-scenes interview during the shoot, Gretchen commented that initially being naked was “nerve-racking” but as the day wore on, she became more and more comfortable.
Gretchen also said, “It’s a huge honor to be grouped in with some of the most amazing and skilled athletes in the world. Celebrating Men, women. Every different kind of body, every different kind of sport and showing that everything is beautiful in a very athletic way. I want to be strong and I want to be badass and I think we accomplished that.”
We knew Gretchen and Louie were ripped, but their physiques are seriously epic. Who knew the Tiny Dancer was hiding all that under his dancing clothes?!
