Just look at the talent on display here! Members of the Great British hockey team have stripped off for the July issue of Cosmopolitan (on sale now), and we have to admit we’re rather impressed with the results.
The boys bared all as part of Cosmo’s campaign to raise awareness and funds for the Everyman appeal. George Pinner (middle) has said of the nudey shoot, “This shoot was a great laugh. The photographer kept calling for us to turn slightly when one of us was ‘on show’, so to speak. We have a number of jokers in the team who keep everyone relaxed.
“As an athlete my body is very important to me. I’m a goalkeeper so I need to be fast and explosive to cover the goal and close players down quickly. I value my health and, having seen how cancer can affect anyone at any time, it’s good to do something to help such a great cause.”
On show! *Blushes*
While team mate Alistair Brogdon (far left) said, “Which of us has the best body? This is a tricky one as we’re all in similar physical shape. For that reason I feel like I can highlight myself for a shameless plug! My favourite part of my body is probably my abs; my leastfavourite is my teeth – I had a few knocked out playing hockey and they didn’t go back in very straight.
“Cancer is something that has affected friends andfamily of mine, so posing naked for this shoot to raise awareness of testicular cancer is a cause that’s close to my heart.”
