Swimmer Amanda Beard Protests Fur Beijing Games

Awesome.
U.S. swimmer Amanda Beard unveiled a demure nude photograph of herself urging women "Don't wear fur" on Wednesday, hours after Chinese authorities had prevented her from her staging a news conference for "safety" reasons.

The Athens 2004 Olympic gold medallist said she was determined to carry on even after plainclothes police banned her scheduled news conference at a Beijing hotel "for our safety".
Here is her website. I'd root for her, but I'm skipping the games to protest their treatment of animals.
