Amanda Beard, the champion breaststroker who maintained her dominance over three Olympic Games, is now better remembered for her Playboy spread.  Great job winning seven Olympic medals, let's see the boobs.  And now she's going to bare it all again — kinda — for one of those PETA ads where they're all "Blah blah blah naked blah blah fur."

Beard… is to appear naked in an advertising campaign protesting against fashion furs that will be launched at the Beijing Olympics on Wednesday…

"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," PETA quoted Beard as saying.

I'm conflicted on this one.  On the one hand, I very much support women getting naked for any reason whatsoever.  On the other hand, these steak pants are really comfortable.
