As noted by ESPN on its official website late last month, its fourth annual celebration of the athletic form of the magazine, which will hit newsstands on Friday, July 13, or two weeks before the start of the 2012 London Olympics games, will feature 20 athletes and the 7 members of the USA Volleyball Team.

“My stature. I’m tall with broad shoulders. And my waist is small. I’m into fashion, so I like the way clothes lay on me. I’m pretty much a normal person’s size, just stretched out.” Tyson Chandler was quoted telling to ESPN when asked what he likes about his body.

Meanwhile, ESPN noted that this year’s Body Issue will give a spotlight on U.S. Olympians such as gymnast Dana Leyva; sprinter Carmelita Jeter, who won the 100-meter qualifying event in Oregon last June 23; and decathlete Ashton Eaton, who set a new decathlon world record at the U.S. Track and Field Trials on the same day.

However, Bleacher Report noted on Monday, July 9, that although the athletes included in the list were all admirable choices, there are some notable names that should also be there, which includes Sacramento Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, Washington NationalsBryce Harper of the Major League Baseball, and tennis player Maria Sharapova.
