Aussie basketball star Liz Cambage has joined the illustrious list of athletes to pose nude for ESPN’s ‘The Body’ issue.
‘The Body’ issue celebrates the different physiques of athletes around the world, most notably those tearing it up in America.
And the WNBA star is doing exactly that.
Images are surfacing online of some of the images from this year’s edition, including ones of Cambage.

“It was pretty crazy. I was naked in front of like 15 to 20 people,” Cambage told the Las Vegas Review-Journal about the shoot.
“I think that’s why I’m nervous. I know my angles when I take Instagram photos, but this is out of my control, so it’s scary.”
Cambage promoting body positivity
Cambage has been a prominent advocate in promoting positive body image among young females.
“I was bullied since primary school, for everything,” Cambage said on Studio 10 earlier this year.
“Growing up for me, it was so hard. I had no one who was different to look up to.
“Australia isn’t the most diverse place when it comes to media and advertising.
“I literally had no one to look at on TV other than Beyonce and Rihanna — and I definitely do not look like those amazing women.”
The 2019 issue will feature members of the 2018 Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, World No.1 golfer Brooks Koepka and viral gymnast Katelyn Ohashi, among others.
