WATCH: Female Swimmers Model Like Victoria’s Secret Angels

U.S. Olympic swimmers Caroline Burckle and Kim Vandenberg participated in a video with a group of female athletes in which they recreated some of the Victoria’s Secret Angels’ modeling photos. Burckle and Vandenberg teamed up with several elite athletes from multiple sports, including Kelli Hayes (basketball), Jamie Hagiya (crossfit), Lydia Fixel (boxing/wrestling), Erin Jones (softball), Marlene Colin (pole vaulting), and Brittany Combs (basketball).

As a swimmer, Burckle was an SEC champion and NCAA champion for the University of Florida Gators. She was named the NCAA Woman of the Year in 2008. Also in 2008, Burckle qualified to swim on the 800 free relay at the Beijing Olympics, winning bronze with Team USA. Vandenberg also won a bronze as a member of that relay. Individually, Vandenberg’s long list of accomplishments includes a silver medal in the 200 fly from the 2007 World Championships.

Check out the video below to get to know the athletes and watch their photoshoot.

I’d rather see the athletes competing – that is true beauty.

I really like this (and not just because it is nice looking women in their underwear, I promise)!

I’ve got 2 young daughters who enjoy sports (swimming included), and at this age their potential is wide open. I sincerely hope they never feel pressured to quit or stop sports due to feeling they need to “have a certain look” or that being athletic is somehow less feminine. I don’t really care at the end of the day so long as they are happy and healthy, but I want it to be their choice (and not something society pushes on them).

Cross fit isn’t a sport

Swimmmer – Crossfit isn’t my favorite thing either, but I think at this point, it’s hard to argue that it isn’t a sport.

It’s a privately owned company……not a sport

I love this! So important to empower women in sports when they’re constantly compared to beautiful models! Bad ass, ladies
