This news is a few days old, but I hope you don't mind. My shallow Olympic-related posts must continue.
One of my bigger learnings during these Olympics is that there is a bountiful supply of beautiful athletes. I hasn't always been this way, has it? From Leryn Franco to Sheena Tosta to [insert your favorite tennis star here], the list is quite long.
Before these games began, 100% Injury Rate listed 10 Olympians who had posed for the Playboy. We may need to edit our work as the list will surely double by the end of these Beijing Games, thanks in large part to a quartet of German Olympians.
The Sun UK has all the details [NSFW pic]:
Petra Niemann is competing in her third Olympiad, and sailing is her game. “I’ve been working hard with my psychologist,” she told Playboy, as if to suggest this had something to do with sport or being naked.
Kayaker Nicole Reinhardt is one of Germany’s best hopes for gold in Beijing, and is grateful that her sport is about technique, so the “dickere und kräftigere” (”butch”) ladies have nothing on her svelte frame.
Katharina Scholz is a field hockey starlet, and also a WAG of ex-footballer Oliver Hentschel.
I'm still partial to Ms. Leryn Franco, but I'll grant Romy Tarangul a silver medal in the hot Olympian competition.
Since it's Wednesday, and you may be bored, here's the NSFW German guide to these Olympic Playboy pictures. There's very little written in English, just in case you try to use the "reading for the articles" excuse. Just sayin'.
