Hope Solo looks fierce (and naked) on the cover ESPN The Magazine's "The Body Issue." There she stands in her birthday suit — intense face, left arm and right leg covering her lady bits but showing off some serious muscles. Impressive? Yes. Sexy? Not to her, despite how hard her Dancing With the Stars partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, tries to get her to see it.

“I still don’t buy the idea that I’m a sex symbol," Hope told ESPN's magazine. “Growing up, I felt insecure about my build. Guys would say, ‘Look at those muscles! You can kick my ass!’ I didn’t feel feminine. But that’s changed in the last four years.”

With the success of women's soccer in the U.S., Hope and her teammates have put fit, super-toned bodies in the spotlight, helping to change what it means to be an attractive woman.

Let’s hope this nude spread will help Hope and Maksim as they prepare for Season 13, Week 4 on DWTS. Last week, the pair were in the bottom two following their ‘80s influenced Cha-Cha-Cha.
