It is truly amazing what hard work and discipline can do to the body, so let us all take a moment to marvel at these very fine specimens. The muscles these athletes develop blow my mind! What a beautiful group of portraits in the nude, for the most part. The photography on Khatuna was my favorite, visually…. Makes clear that even healthy people have different physiques, which helps deflate a lot of the body image BS out there.
The matter of athletes posing nude has always been a polarizing subject. Some are of the opinion that this only serves to sexualize them thus taking away from their talents and achievements in their respective sports. However, some believe that this is a way to empower others to be comfortable in their own skin and let go of their insecurities by appreciating themselves as they are. The fact is, some people will always be for it and others against it. Regardless of people's opinions, there has been an increasing number of athletes who are willing to pose nude. The increase can be attributed to the numerous lucrative endorsements and modelling jobs that come about as a result of doing such shoots.
Katarina Witt, one of the greatest Olympic figure skaters, was the first female athlete to pose naked for Playboy. The December issue featuring her nude photographs was the second ever sold-out issue of the magazine. Some do it for the money and fame, some do it for a good cause, while other athletes do it because they are simply proud of showing their perfectly sculpted bodies. Whether posing nude is damaging or not for female athletes, is still a hot debate. Charlene Weaving states? By the way, did you know that ancient Olympians competed nude? A remarkable athlete and fascinating person, Katarina Witt is considered to be one of the greatest figure skaters of all time. Her competitive record is truly impressive. The German figure skater won two Olympic gold medals, four World Championships and six consecutive European Championships.
