We have our first naked Olympian and her name is Jackie Chamoun
Jackie Chamoun is a Lebanese skier who’s making headlines in Sochi today after nude photos of her surfaced on the web. Chamoun admits to doing the photoshoot some three years ago but for some reason, video of the shoot just emerged this week.
Jackie Chamoun responded to the controversy on her Facebook page.
I just want to make it clear to everyone who commented, shared the photos that appeared on the net in Lebanon yesterday. Yes I did photos for an Austrian ski calendar with other professional athletes 3 years ago. The photos of the photoshoot are not like the actual images that are now circulating on the net. The video and photos that you are now seeing are part of the making off, the preparation, it wasn’t supposed to go public. Anyways, I want to apologize to all of you, I know that Lebanon is a conservative country and this is not the image that reflects our culture. I fully understand if you want to criticise this.
Now that I’m at the Olympic Games, these photos that I never saw before are being shared. It is sad. All I can ask to each of you who saw this, is to stop spreading it, it will really help me focusing on what is really important now: my trainings and race.
Here is the video in question. Sure, it’s a bit risque but nothing I haven’t seen in an episode of NYPD Blue.
The Lebanese Olympic committee is standing behind Chamoun (not literally but dat ass though) saying they will not punish her. Good decision Lebanon considering it happened some three years ago.
