Women's Biathlon Athletes Launch Nude Calendar

By October 29, 2008

Biathalon The Canadian Press is reporting that five members of the Canadian women's biathlon team have posed nude for a calendar to raise money for their sport. The female biathletes launched the calendar by roller-skiing through downtown Calgary,wearing shorts, tank tops, and race bibs with their rifles strapped to their backs.

The calendar features photos of Zina Kocher of Red Deer, Alta., Calgary's Sandra Keith, Rosanna Crawford of Canmore, Alta., Megan Imrie of Falcon Lake, Man., and Megan Tandy of Prince George, B.C.

This is not the first time female, or male athletes, have been taking their clothes off to raise money for training and competition expenses. Alain Baxter, the British Olympian, recently bared it all for a calendar in efforts to attract sponsors. The Canadian women's rugby team also published a calendar with rugby balls and Canadian flags strategically placed to pacify censors.

The Bold Beautiful Biathlon calendar goes on sale Nov. 1 for $25.
