Olympics 2022: two athletes present in Beijing pose naked for Playboy

From ice cream to glossy paper covers. Two athletes present at the 2022 Beijing Olympics have agreed to pose naked for Playboy magazine before flying to the Chinese capital.

Lisa Buckwitz is known for having won a gold medal in the two-man bobsleigh at the Pyeongchang Olympics in 2018. And the German sportswoman will try to do it again on the Beijing track. For her part, Austrian skeleton star Janine Flock will strive to win the first Olympic medal of her career. Serious ambitions for the two athletes who have prepared for a long time to achieve their goal.

And if their preparation was intense to arrive in China in the best possible mood, they found some time to strip and pose nude in the February issue of the German version of Playboy. “Lisa Buckwitz and Janine Flock are our two main heroines for the new issue,” said the magazine, which devoted two separate covers to the two young women.

Lisa Buckwitz shared hers on Instagram and explained why she agreed to pose fully naked. “Every woman has the right to be naked and no one should be ashamed of their body. Me, for example, I am more muscular, so what? I wanted to show that it is also a woman’s body. I don’t have to hide as a competitive athlete,” she said.

And she does not regret her choice in any way. “It was truly an honor for me when I received the request to be photographed after so many successful German women posed for ‘Playboy,'” Lisa Buckwitz said in statements published by Bild newspaper. “I’m sure there are a lot of people who say, ‘Oh my God, why did she do that?’ And of course, there will be envious people. But honestly, I don’t care! I don’t have to prove or show anything to anyone,” she added.

“an additional boost of motivation”

The motivations that prompted Lisa Buckwitz to accept are identical to those of Janine Flock. “I don’t like being the center of attention. But I want to show with the photos that a natural body can also be beautiful. A body in which nothing is done. I have not had plastic surgery and I keep what I have. Every woman can be proud of her body,” she said.

She even sees it as a good way to win the Olympic medal she so desires. “It’s important to have other things in mind than sport from time to time. I even think it will give me an extra boost of motivation,” said the Austrian, who will enter the competition at the end of the week. And Janine Flock, like Lisa Buckwitz, should attract many eyes.
