By Kathyrine Jordan, World-Track

LOS ANGELES, CA — ESPN The Magazine will let loose its “Body Issue” on Friday October 9 with several different athletes showcasing on the cover.

See a quick preview from usatoday of Sarah Reinertsen cover shot.

But the cover on Sarah Reinertsen, the first female amputee to complete in the Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, will probably be one of the most talked about.

Also expected to draw some attention is American sprint hurdler star Lolo Jones, who despite some discomfort about the idea at first, said is happy to be take part in a piece “to portray a strong, beautiful, athletic woman.”

“I posed naked for ESPN magazine! Jones wrote in her diary on the

website. “It was pretty cool and the whole shoot was done in a very tasteful and discreet way. The whole premise behind the shoot was not to create sex appeal, but to portray a strong, beautiful, athletic woman and I think we achieved that.

“I’m not very comfortable in those situations in fact I’m quite conservative. But the whole crew helped me through any unease, and I felt a lot more contented with the shoot when I thought of it as being just like a drug test.

“The photos were taken in the French Quarter of New Orleans, and we went for a look like a Greek statue. A whole number of other sports stars like the tennis player Serena Williams, American footballers and another athlete, the shot putter Michelle Carter will also appear in the Body Issue of the magazine which hits the newsstands on Friday. Look out for it.”
