Each year Compete produces our one-of-a-kind swimsuit issue. On March 15 we held our 9th Annual Swimsuit Shoot in Phoenix featuring athletes from WeHo Dodgeball, Phoenix Frontrunners and Arizona Gay Volleyball.
To wet your appetite for this year’s Swimsuit Issue, due out the first week of April, our fearless Associate Publisher, Patrick Gamble, bravely weathered the 90 degree heat to catch some behind the scenes shots.
Special thanks to this year’s photographer Leland Gebhardt (www.lelandg.com), TUC SHOPS @ Melrose for styling the athletes (www.tucshops.com) and the Holiday Inn Phoenix Downtown North (www.holidayinn.com/phx-downtown) for hosting the photo shoot.
