Last week we caught a glimpse of the beauty that is Adam Rippon and a pair of skates — just a pair of skates.

The Olympian and all-around dreamboat followed in the footsteps of many a gorgeous athlete before him when he took it all off for ESPN Magazine’s annual Body Issue.

And while the issue doesn’t hit newsstands until June 29, Adam has kindly shared eight shots to his Instagram feed.

See them all here.

He told the magazine he could never have done the shoot even just a few years back:

“I couldn’t have done this [shoot] while I was in the closet. I think that, with my experience of coming out, I felt so liberated in so many ways.”
