Sun-drenched cricketers and bare-chested footballers may have you hesitating to open the winter wardrobe but take heed: forecasters warn that it will not be only Sunderland fans who have a harsh winter ahead. Cold weather is not normally a cause for celebration but, with the Winter Olympics in Turin in February, Europe's ski resorts are looking forward to plenty of the white stuff. Many of the winter sports have already embarked on their competitive seasons and some of Britain's hopefuls have been waxing and waning. Alain Baxter, who took the slalom bronze in before losing it for failing a drug test, is one of Team GB's few genuine medal hopes for Turin, though he did not get beyond the first round when his season opened indoors in the Netherlands this weekend. Medals for Britain in Turin will be scarce but those who became overnight curling fans four years ago may be ready for a little brushing up on our team's preparations this time round.
Nude athlete calendar shocker

This article was published more than 10 years ago. Some information in it may no longer be current. Women's curling is sure to receive a lot more exposure this year, thanks to a new international calendar that features nude and scantily clad female curlers. The calendar is the brainchild of Ana Arce, a photographer who skipped the Andorran women's team for three seasons before moving to Spain this year. I doubt that anyone is going to be shocked and everybody's going to enjoy that and like it. All proceeds will be split between the teams of the curlers who pose in the calendar, called the Ana Arce Team Sponsorship Calendar Ryan, a year-old student at McMaster University in Hamilton, found herself posing in a see-through sarong in the forests of Fussen, Germany, in July.
A news release went out at am ET today. Now, an international group of strong-willed and taut-figured female curlers has dropped their drawers to pose nude — or nearly-nude — in a new fundraising calendar. As revealed in the November issue of The Curling News , the Ana Arce Team Sponsorship Calendar is shot in black and white, printed on high-quality art paper and features 12 models representing curling teams from around the world. Arce is also one of the models.
After taking a year off, the Women of Curling Calendar, featuring 13 female curlers from around the world, is now on sale. Like past editions of the calendar, it features nude or near-nude curlers posing with props related to the sport. Keshen also posed in the edition of the calendar.
