THE EXCELLENCE OF EXECUTION: USA TODAY's Chris Strauss notes boxer Bernard Hopkins, the "eldest athlete in this year's edition" of the magazine, is shown "squared up in a boxing stance wearing nothing but a pair of hand wraps." Hopkins said, "It's an honor to be there, because I'm representing boxing and representing myself. I'm 49 1/2 years old, and 50 is a great number for people to understand the transition and turning 50. It's a milestone." He added, "I've been asked to display an art, my body, my temple, to the world. Hopefully it motivates someone to say, 'He's 49 1/2 looking like that, I'm going to do something different in my lifestyle'" (USA TODAY, 7/8).
