Why we love Amanda Beard
It has to be said, that many of the women featured on this venerable website are not exactly high achievers in anything other than being hot. But in Amanda Beard you have a real bone-fide Olympian, and we’re not talking Czech shot-putters or pre-pubescent Korean gymnasts. Beard is an all American beauty with a body that has been toned to perfection by a lifetime spent cutting through the water like a sexy otter.
And thankfully for us, Amanda Beard also has no qualms about peeling off her swimming cozzie for the camera. She has posed for Playboy as well as in anti-fur campaigns for Peta – and FHM would certainly ditch our favourite ankle length purple mink number if it meant we could spend some time with Amanda Beard. After failing to place at the Beijing Olympics, Amanda Beard has moved into TV with a presenting gig for Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News. This will mean making lewd breaststroke jokes will be harder, but not impossible.
