Undressing speed skaters Aida Bella and Marta Wójcik

 

Short track speed skaters Aida Bella and Marta Wojcik are the centerpiece of a new edition of Playboy, each holding skates while standing back to back (like the famous Larry Bird-Magic Johnson “Choose Your Weapon” ad by Converse, only with less clothing).

Bella and Wojcik appeared in the magazine in hopes of garnering attention and funding leading into the Sochi Olympics, according to European reports.

It’s uncertain whether Bella or Wojcik will qualify for Sochi.

A Polish short track skater has never finished better than 11th at the Olympics. The nation did not send a female skater to the Games until 2010.

Neither Bella nor Wojcik is ranked in the top 40 in the world in an individual event (an Olympic field size is capped at 32 or 36.). Poland is outside the top 10 in team relay rankings (eight nations compete in the Olympic relay).

Olympic qualifying concludes at a World Cup stop this weekend in Kolomna, Russia.
