Gymnast Alicia Sacramone, baseball player Jose Reyes, soccer player Hope Solo, football player Steven Jackson and NBA player Blake Griffin are among the athletes posing nude for ESPN The Magazine's third annual Body Issue, USA Today reports.
More than 20 athletes will appear naked (with their private parts strategically covered) in a section of the issue titled "Bodies We Want." The issue, the magazine's annual "exploration and celebration of...
Chelsie Hightower, who has danced with a rodeo cowboy (Ty Murray) and a snowboarder (Louie Vito), was surprised to be paired with The Bachelor (Jake Pavelka). The Dancing with the Stars pro tells TVGuide.com: "I think [his casting] surprised a lot of people." Also a surprise: Pavelka's performance on Week 1. The pair posted the fourth-highest score of the night — a 20 — for their Viennese waltz. But their second-week dance, the jive, is shaping up to be more of a challenge. Find out why the jive is so tough for Pavelka, who Hightower thinks is a dark horse, and what role she may play in the pilot's wedding to Vienna Girardi.
Lindsey Vonn vowed to "push through" the pain, and push through it she did — crossing the line in the downhill at the Winter Olympics on one ski to win her first career gold medal.
Overcoming a shin injury and living up to huge expectations, the most decorated female alpine skier in U.S. history tore through the rugged and ragged course Wednesday, winning by more than half a second.

Armed with two versions of the must-have trick of the season — the double cork 1080 — Vito, who finished eighth on Dancing with the Stars last season, is ready to continue the United States' domination in the Olympic halfpipe. Get the scoop on which tricks he's planning to throw, why he will be tweeting throughout the games and what he wants to take from Apolo Anton Ohno.
Len Goodman can tell Louie Vito how to dance, but he can't tell him how to wear his hair.
"Some people like it and some people don't, but I'm not going to change it," the Dancing with the Stars contestant tells TVGuide.com. "I'm not going to cut my hair and have everyone see how bad it looks short! I'm going to save these luscious locks."
After impressing the crowd with a respectable foxtrot on Monday's season premiere, the snowboarding Olympic hopeful got an earful from the head judge about his shaggy mop of hair and its lack of ballroom-appropriateness. For the record, Vito, who will perform the jive this week, just had it "trimmed." And if you ask ...
