Jamie Anderson Bares All In The upcoming 2014 ESPN Body Issue
The issue releases July 11th, be sure to pick up a copy.
Professional snowboarder and U.S. Olympic goals medalist Jamie Anderson is looking a little chilly, but happy in the photo leaked from ESPN’s annual Body Issue, which features professional athletes from around the world, getting naked.
Perviously featured snowboarders in The ESPN Body Issue include, Louie Vito and Gretchen Bleiler in 2011 and Elena Hight in 2013.
Jamie had this to say about her experience shooting for The Body Issue.
“I’ve never done any naked shoots or even bikini shoots so it was new for me to do that,” Anderson said. “At first I was a little bit terrified but it was really good practice for me to accept everything about myself and love my body and not judge the little things that we do as women or anyone and just embrace where I’m at. With hurting my foot a month before the [May] shoot, I didn’t really get to run or anything.
My first impression was that I want to work out and get super crazy fit. It didn’t really play out that way. I still live a healthy, active lifestyle but I wasn’t able to train as I would have. It became even more beneficial because I got to step back and embrace myself and how I am and not try to fit this Hollywood image of being really super skinny.”
