Via stumptuous comes this wonderful photo essay of female athletes. Anybody know where I could get a poster of this?

Ironmaven scanned the images by Howard Schatz from Sports Illustrated (October 14, 2002). Some of the women were later featured in his book Athlete.

that is *awesome*.

a really great find.

thanks for sharing.

(i'd love to see a similar one for men. in my line of work, body types, particularly in the ranges shown here, are such an integral part of the job. especially with all the character-focused work that i do. wish i had this range of models to work from!)

Definitely. I'd add a contortionist and an open-water swimmer too. There's SUCH a range!

Too much muscle for me...

I prefer the gymnast on the right and the wakeboarder. The others are too "cut" for my tastes.

To each their own. I like "cut". (Not to say that the gymnast and wakeboarder aren't fine too. I like 'em both. )

as badly as i want a "fitness model" body, most of these are kind of gross to me. also, as little body fat as i have, i really don't understand how i can weigh so much more than these women. i'm not nearly as muscular. must be the ass ;)
