New York: ESPN magazine’s 2011 ‘Body Issue’ was unveiled in New York on Friday with the world going nuts for the aesthetically nude shots of top world athletes.

The cover images that were previously released have become a rage on the internet. The magazine had announced last week that women`s soccer star Hope Solo, Rams running back Steven Jackson and NBA phenom Blake Griffin would be among the athletes to pose.

Solo, Griffin, snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, Mets shortstop Jose Reyes and star goalkeeper Tim Howard were chosen to grace the covers of the 2011 issue.
