Olympic track pursuiter Rebecca Romero has posed nude for an advert for sports drink Powerade.
The striking photo of the Team GB rider has appeared in a number of daily papers already, and the coverage - or perhaps lack of it - will increase as the advert is run during the Olympic Games in Beijing, china (August 8-24).
Already an Olympic silver medalist in rowing, Romero has been selected to ride the women's individual pursuit and points race in Beijing after making the switch to cycling in 2006 with great success - she is currently individual pursuit world champion and was part of Britain's gold medal winning worlds team pursuit squad.
You can read her full profile in our GB Team Profiles section.

The image of Romero is similar to that of her fellow track cyclist Victoria Pendleton, taken for the Guardian's sport supplement in Feburary.
