Four of Overwatch‘s new Legendary hero skins have been revealed for this year’s Summer Games event, showing off the athletic side of some heroes, and the lazy side of others.

The heroes currently confirmed to be getting new skins are D.Va, Reinhardt, Winston, and Ana. The first three skins are sports themed—respectively turning the heroes into a wave racer, a football player, and a baseball catcher—while Ana’s new skin is all about lounging on the beach, clearly as a nod to the character’s popular voice line that references chilling in a cabana.

All four skins were revealed on the Overwatch Twitter account, as can be seen below. Each new skin will presumably cost 3,000 gold, while returning event skins will likely be available at the reduced price of 1,000 gold.

Events normally launch with seven or eight Legendary skins, so we should expect three or four more skin reveals before the event goes live on Thursday, August 9th. In addition to new skins, players can look forward to the return of Lucioball.
