Where many Olympians were busy posing nude on various top magazines of their country for big amounts, she is a different story.
Maya Nakanishi from Japan took this novel approach to raise fund to compete at London 2012 Paralymics. She claimed fourth place in 200m and sixth place in 100m race in Beijing Olympic.
Yet, so close to the medals on Beijing, she was struggling to raise the fund for this Olympic. So, she released a nude calendar to raise the fund to get to the London 2012 Olympic, a dream for her.
It’s pity to see such good athlete posing nude because of no sponsorship. Yet, no the other hand that was really a brave attempt and I salute her for that.
