Jamie Anderson On ESPN Body Issue

Jamie Anderson scored the cover of ESPNs annual celebration of peak athletes physical condition. The 2014 Body issue also features surfer Coco Ho and snowboarder Amy Purdy, and (more loosely associated) a pretty funny shot of Travis Pastrana and his wife.

Anderson did have a great quote on her approach to her competitors, “I’d rather be inspired by my competition than be jealous. I’m trying to approach it in a different way, where I’m inspired that they’re doing a double cork even though I’m scared as hell to do it. Then it makes me feel that maybe I can do it. Maybe not right now, but maybe someday.”

Check the ‘making of’ clip below and head over here for the full interview. Worth a look.
