The Greeks are said to have competed in the buff during the original Olympics, so perhaps German Playboy isn't too far off the mark by featuring four of the country's female athletes for its upcoming September edition.

Kayak racer Nicole Reinhardt (22), hockey striker Katharina Scholz (25), sailor Petra Niemann (29), and Judo fighter Romy Tarangul (20) all bared their sporting spirit for four different Playboy covers.

Each of the women discussed their athletic yet feminine athletic physique with the magazine, which hasn’t been the least bit controversial in a country known for its liberal attitudes toward nudity.
