Before Bleiler was the queen of the halfpipe, the favorite at the Olympics, the top female snowboarder in the United States, she was recognized mainly as that lean blonde who was pictured on the cover of a men's magazine wearing nothing but body paint. Most snowboarders are photographed in puffy parkas and baggy pants, their faces obscured by goggles, bandannas and beanies, as they twist upside down in the air. But since Bleiler removed her layers and was turned into a human canvas, she is more often asked to pose.

Gretchen Bleiler is a pro snowboarder who won a silver medal at the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and will be one of the four cover athletes for this edition. I didn't want soft and cute and sexy," she says in an interview. She gained popularity during the Olympics in Beijing and will certainly resurface in the public conversation when this issue hits newsstands. Quite an interesting shot of her doing what she does best on the bar, just without the normal uniform. Apolo Anton Ohno is perhaps the most famous American speed skater in history and the most decorated of all American Olympic Winter athletes. Ohno has appeared on 'Dancing with the Stars,' and has raised his profile even higher now that he is appearing in this magazine spread. You can see him here in Olympic form without the skates and speed skating suit he usually dons on the ice.
