VIDEO :: Topless Images of Winter Games Athlete Cause a Stir in Lebanon

by Paul Heling

Lebanese skier Jackie Chamoun appeared in a photo shoot for a 2014 calendar which has long since been released.  What wasn't released until recently was a behind the scenes video that was more risque than the pictures on the calendar.  It has caused somewhat of a scandal in conservative Lebanon including within the Lebanese Olympic Committee.   Apparently Lebanon is more liberal than surrounding countries but still conservative by Western standards.

She has since apologized on her Facebook page saying she understands the conservatism, this is not an image that reflects the culture and understands those who criticize.  Fans have taken to Facebook and Twitter to show support including pages like Support Jackie Chamoun and We Support Jackie Chamoun for the Olympics.
