Athletic body diversity reference for artists.

This is a photoshoot of various Olympic-level athletes by Howard Schartz and Beverly Ornstein titled “The Athlete”.

Fascinating! What amazes me is how small the marathoners are. Obviously long legs are not the key, but compact efficiency is. On the other hand, the women highjumpers are all beanpoles.

It's a little disappointing the photographer didn't keep them all to scale so you have to actually read the height for each to figure out how big they are.
