Nationals slugger Bryce Harper and USA soccer team member Ali Krieger are among the athletes pictured in ESPN The Magazine's seventh annual "Body Issue."

Other athletes photographed include basketball's Kevin Love and DeAndre Jordan, football's Odell Beckham Jr., soccer player Jermaine Jones, gymnast Aly Raisman, swimmer Natalie Coughlin, French Open champion Stan Wawrinka, and the husband-wife team of surfer Laird Hamilton and former beach volleyball player Gabby Reece.

"I'm proud of my body, I'm proud of my sport, I'm proud of being a professional athlete," Krieger told ESPN. "Being naked is just another aspect of that."

Krieger and the Americans play Colombia in the World Cup knockout stage on Monday night.

ESPN said the issue will be available online July 6 and in print July 10.
