UncleLar extra - Natalie Coughlin - USA - Swimming

I really don’t have any photos of Natalie where she isn’t completely clothed so she really can’t qualify for an UncleLar Nude Olympian of the Day. However, she is cute as the devil and I do have a bunch of great photos of her that would just be a waste to not use. So I’ll just toss a gallery of them in as another extra.

Amanda Beard – USA – Swimming - Vol III no 7

The photos of Amanda could be considered quite tame compared to many that I’ve usually used. However, I must have been prescient because since 2004 Amanda has done some spectacular photo layouts. Fortunately, she’s on the 2008 squad so you can be sure she’ll make another appearance.
