Olympic Track Star Removes Breast Implants To Improve Speed

via weirdnews.com

Olympics or bust?

Olympics, apparently.

Australian star hurdler Jana Pittman-Rawlinson recently reversed her $13,000 breast implant surgery, worried that her newly acquired chest was affecting her performance on the track.

“Every time I raced I panicked about whether I was letting my country down, all for my own vanity,” she said.

Pittman-Rawlinson thinks that the weight and heft of her new cleavage is causing added drag on her speed, and that ditching them will make her more aerodynamic.

Look, breast implants make a lot of women feel more confident — but if a beautiful, successful world champion athlete and Olympian doesn’t feel confident in her body, that doesn’t really bode well. Especially considering the fact that Pittman-Rawlinson told reporters that she wouldn’t rule out getting new implants after her track career is over.

If nothing else, maybe we can admire her commitment to the cause? “I absolutely loved having bigger boobs, but I don’t want to short-change Australia either,” she said. “I want to feel the most athletic I can, to know that I’m standing on the track in London (2012 Olympics) the fittest I can be.”

After all, downsizing your chest for the citizens of your country is patriotism at its finest, if you ask us.
