Norwegian skier regrets posing nude

Dec. 27, 2006 at 8:35 PM

OSLO, Norway, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Skier Ingvild Engesland says she regrets posing nude for the Norwegian soft core porn magazine, Lek.

"I thought it wasn't anything to worry about, there are pictures of naked girls in that magazine every month without it causing any fuss," she said.

The magazine features 10 nude photos of Engesland, Aftenposten reported.

Lek calls her a "sexy sports talent," and Norwegian newspapers and television stations want to meet the sexually liberated girl who is pictured in Lek.

"This is just terrible. I never got to check the interview and I still haven't seen it. But I have heard some excerpts and I don't recognize myself," Engesland said. "I am very surprised that there has been so much fuss, I am not famous at all. Now that I see the consequences I truly regret doing it."

The University of Denver Web site lists Engesland's age as 24, but Aftenposten said she is 22. She was a member of the Norwegian national team in 2001 and 2004.

Evidently, she's not happy to be getting more attention for the photo spread than for her performance on the slopes.

"I want to be remembered as a skier," she said.
