Diana Taurasi to Grace Cover of ESPN The Magazine



ESPN The Magazine
PHOENIX – ESPN The Magazine will feature Mercury guard Diana Taurasi on the cover of its second annual “Body Issue” that hits newsstands Friday, October 8.

Taurasi is the first WNBA player to be on the cover of the “Body Issue,” which is a celebration and exploration of the athletic form. The Magazine, which features nearly 40 athletes, launched the “Bodies We Want” edition to honor athletes of diverse shapes, sizes, colors, genders and race. Taurasi’s cover is one of two that will be available nationwide.

“Doing the shoot was something new and I had fun with it,” said Taurasi. “For me, doing this was about facing the challenge and celebrating everything all of our bodies have been through and done. Cheryl, the photographer, was great to work with and hopefully, we came up with something interesting and maybe even inspiring.”

The Magazine, which is read by more than 2.2 million people, will be available on all major newsstands Friday.
