The photo, from ESPN The Magazine’s forthcoming Body Issue, is posted below. I can’t be certain, but it might qualify as NSFW.
True to her Scandinavian genes, the Norwegian agreed to participate in the shoot straight away, according to USA Today’s Steve DiMeglio:
“A lot of the best athletes in the world have done it, and I thought it was great to be asked. I thought about it, being naked and all, but I never really considered not doing it. I just had to make sure that I was comfortable in doing it. It’s as natural as it gets. It’s health at its peak.”
Pettersen, winner of the 2007 LPGA Championship, is an avid skier, cyclist and affirmed gym bunny. Most of the promotional material doing the rounds considers it important to mention her height and weight (5’9”, 150lbs).
One thing’s for certain, this is a hell of a lot easier on the eyes than Camilo’s shoot from a while back. That was… *shudder*
