Nov. 22, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Amanda Beard is noted among some of the best women swimmers of the United States and in her Olympic career from 1996 to 2008, she has brought several honors for the country. However, she could not fare well in the last Olympic Games. Beard has gained popularity not only for her breaststrokes in swimming but also is known among the athletes who posed nude for famous magazine Playboy in 2007. In the month of September, she has given birth to her son, Blaise Ray Brown and shared some photos of herself with her new born baby on Saturday.
The recent photographs of Amanda Beard with her son reminds of her nude photographs for Playboy and PETA. Playboy images of Amanda Beard have changed the view of people that athletes do not have sexually attractive figure. After posing for Playboy in 2007, she has again dropped her clothes for PETA in 2008. Several athletes have followed her and have posed unclothed for PETA. To prevent the slaughtering of animals for their furs, Amanda Beard said, “Seeing animals slaughtered to be worn as fashion is awful to me, so I’m definitely against wearing fur… I’d much rather go naked than ever put a dead animal on my body.” Sources stated that she does not consume meat and follows a strict vegetarian diet.
Apart from Amanda Beard, many other athletes have tried to protest animal slaughter in different ways and posing for PETA is one of them. Recently, Karina Smirnoff, with her athlete husband Tony Gonzalez dropped their clothes for the animal rights group and supported their cause.
