Every year, special men and women of all sports, get that special invitation to “bare all” for the ESPN Magazine “Body Issue”. The issue is for all the fans out there who admire the physique of the athletes we see year round, working hard to keep their bodies tight. Each year, a different male or female from any sport, gets to grace to cover of this special issue.
This year, San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, is getting a chance to show off more than just his tattoos for Instagram.
Kaepernick was chosen to be the “coverboy” for the 2013 ESPN The Magazine Body Issue, along with a ton of other pro-athletes spread through the issue.
In magazine, Kaepernick says he thinks his arms are his best physical strength, while when asked if he could change anything about his body, the young QB stated he would change his legs because he thinks they are too skinny.
Also featured in the magazine will be Elena Hight, 5 time gold medalist at the X-Games, Olympic Boxer Marlen Esparza and Denver Nuggets Forward Kenneth Faried, amongst other pro athletes in all sports.
The issue hits stores July 12th!
