American swimmer Amanda Beard staged the first athlete protest of the Beijing Olympics, unveiling a nude photo of herself Wednesday outside the Athlete's Village to back an anti-animal cruelty cause.
The two-time Olympic champion, who will defend her 200-metre
breaststroke gold medal from Athens, held a poster-sized version of her new advertisement in support of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
"The Olympics are a great forum for me to use to get my message out," Beard said. "It's a great thing for me to do.
"I'm saying not to kill innocent animals. There's nothing negative
that goes into that."
