Lebanese skier Jackie Chamoun posed for a risque calendar three years ago and now the topless photos have caused scandal.
The 22-year-old was shot by six-time Mexican Olympic skier Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe for a calendar that features skiers in racy topless poses on various ski resorts around the world.
Lebanese government feels the revealing footage may have damaged the country's reputation.
The scandal comes just days before Chamoun is set to compete in the women's giant Slalom in Sochi, Russia.
The photos are tame by most accounts and her breasts are covered in nearly every shot, but it was labeled by a local Al-Jadeed television broadcast earlier this week as a "scandal."
A YouTube video posted by Beiruting.com shows highlights from the photo shoot with Chamoun.
"Thanks to all the people who supported me&friends who have stood by my side.love to say how proud I am to represent #Lebanon #JackieChamoun" she tweeted on Wednesday, Feb. 12.
Chamoun received great support in the form of a protest in her favor aptly hashtagged on Twitter, #StripForJackie. The campaign featured dozens of men and women — some Lebanese — stripping down to show their solidarity with Chamoun via social media.
