3-D rendering of Penn State's athletes
There's something stirring about an athlete in motion -- the ferocity of a wrestler shooting on his opponent, the grace of a guard dribbling in traffic, the bravado of a gymnast dismounting the beam. But an athlete in stillness can be just as moving. We took a 3-D scan machine to Penn State, one of the nation's largest (325-plus scholarship athletes) and smartest (82% graduation rate) athletics programs, to capture the forms of one Lion from each of the school's 29 varsity sports. What's the cut of a women's fencing champ? How does a women's All-Big Ten soccer star compare to a men's all-conference lacrosse attacker? And what does a 256-pound tackling machine look like stripped of his armor? All good questions, with awesome answers offered by the 29 athletes representing PSU's singular Student Body.
