Last year, ESPN used their annual Body Issue to explore the different shapes and sizes that fuel and service elite athletes — highlighted by Chris Mosier’s inclusion (who was the the first known transgender athlete to qualify for a U.S. national team).

The publication continues to comb through even more body types this year — featuring athletes from the worlds of baseball, football, skiing, rugby, hockey, basketball, figure skating, track and field, tennis, MMA and adaptive sports.

Above, we’ve highlighted the UFC’s Michell Waterson, tennis star Caroline Wozniaki and figure skater Ashley Wagner.

To see the entire 2017 photo set, head on over to ESPN. Also, be sure to catch up on 2015 and 2016’s highlights.
