I know there's controversy every year regarding "Triathlete Magazine's Swimsuit Issue." It's all the normal controversy that comes with any "swimsuit issue." And most years, I haven't seen a problem.
But this year, I need to call B.S. on this issue. There are 16 people modeling swimsuits. 14 of the 16 are women. The 2 guys are in a Jagged "jammer" and a 2XU 1-piece tri suit. Like those are the only 2 options for guys. Come on. And 3 of the female photos are 2-page spreads where you need to turn the magazine vertical like you're gawking at a centerfold in a skin mag. Slightly pornographic.
I dunno. I just think it's a little much this year.
BUT, I like the play on the "swimsuit issue" that TYR did with an ad on the back cover. So here's the COVER of the 2010 swimsuit issue that just came in the mail today:
And here's TYR's ad on the back cover of that issue:
Nice work TYR! Ha!
