Olympians Lisa Buckwitz and Janine Flock set temperatures rising with a sultry Playboy photoshoot just as the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing took off.

Buckwitz, a German bobsledder and skeleton racer, and the Austrian-born Flock, also a skeleton racer, bared it all for Playboy Germany’s Olympic issue, which dedicated a sizzling cover to each Olympian. Buckwitz, who shot to fame after winning gold in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, posed in the nude with an unbuttoned silk green blouse, exposing her breasts. She wore a gold body chain that wrapped around her waist and cascaded down her things as she stood tall, leaning against a mirrored door with her black stiletto resting on the glass. Meanwhile, Flock, who made waves while competing at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, bared it all for the magazine while sitting in a chair, using a fur blanket to cover part of her breasts.

Both Buckwitz and Flock promoted the beauty of "natural bodies" in accompanying interviews with the adult magazine. They stressed that women deserved to feel confident in their own skin. “Every woman can be naked and nobody should be ashamed of her body,” said 2022 European Champion Buckwitz. “For example, I have a few more muscles — so what? I wanted to show that this is also a woman’s body. I don’t have to hide as a competitive athlete. No woman has to hide.”

Meanwhile, Flock highlighted the importance of body positivity. “I want to show that a natural body can also be beautiful. One on which nothing is done. I haven’t had any cosmetic surgeries and I stand by what I have,” said the 32-year-old Austrian, who boasts 10 world championship medals. "Every woman can be proud of her body. It’s important to have things other than sport on your mind every now and then, I think it could even give me an extra motivation boost.”

The Michigan native posted a nude picture and a short clip while covering her modesty. Sharing a short video with her close to 12 million followers on Instagram, the Grammy-winning crooner oozed confidence as she gazed at the camera while her new song played in the background.

Meanwhile, the caption read, “If you love me… you love all of me. You don't get to pick and choose. We should be unconditionally loving of one another, starting with being unconditionally loving to ourselves.” She continued, “Take a moment today and think about the conditions we hold so tightly to that keep us from the freedom of true love”, concluding, “Do you really wanna be so tightly wound? Free yourself in love. You deserve it.”
