Artist Celebrates How Female Olympians Show Beautiful Women’s Bodies Come In Many Sizes

Little girls are watching as Wendy Fox' project celebrates the different sizes and shapes of strong female Olympians and gold medal winners.

Looks like if one artist has her way, female Olympians will give us all a great reminder that strong, beautiful women’s bodies come in many shapes and sizes.

Wendy Fox first got the idea while watching the 2012 Olympics in London. She noticed that these champions came in so many shapes and sizes, that they were beautiful and strong in their own way, depending on their sport.

She collected information and stats on the 276 women who won gold medals in London and created a poster illustrating the different bodies types.

In case you’re wondering, The Chicago Tribune says that means the shortest who was Chinese gymnast, Deng LinLin to the tallest, American basketball player, Sylvia Fowles.

Tiny, but mighty and strong--Chinese gymnast, Deng LinLin was the shortest female Olympian at the London Games in 2012.

Fox is looking to do it again with the Rio Olympics. And this time create a book, as well.

Check out her work and the poster.

Isn't this the poster that should be hanging in all our girls' bedrooms?

Shoot, forget only our daughters.

All we women need to see this.

To realize this.

What is true beauty, power and strength?

Wendy Fox explains in her own words.

You can order your poster in advance and/or support Wendy in her quest here on her Kickstarter page.

And you can have fun on her website, plugging in different stats and find a female Olympian to inspire you.
