| How Sports Shape Our Body

Sport shapes the body in a variety of ways. On the one hand, the psyche is altered and pushed. On the other hand, the visible physical features of the body begin to change.

"The Body Issue" is an issue of "ESPN The Magazine", which shows athletes half- or completely naked. Athletes of different disciplines are photographed in order to highlight the "perfection" of individual aspects of their bodies as developed by their different sports.

Among the pictures is US athlete Chantae McMillan. She qualified for the Olympic Summer Games 2012 in London. Her discipline is the heptathlon, which consists of hurdles, a high jump, a long jump, shot put, a javelin throw, a 200m sprint and an 800m sprint.
