Who is the mystery woman training with Germany?

Let me get this out of the way before I forget, because between this post and the new Aberdeen kit, Football Fashion is my site of the day. Plus, if I didn't do it now, I'd probably be too spent after looking and relooking at all of the pictures ahead.

Britta Heidemann is quite the fencer. She won Gold in the individual epee this past summer in Beijing. She's a Leverkusen gal, and, like the local soccer team, is sponsored by Bayer. These days, she splits her time between Germany and her second home in China. Needless to say, Heidemann was probably quite happy when the German men's team decided to go to China for a friendly. Next thing you know, there she is at training with the Mannschaft, one top athlete working out with other top athletes.

Oh, and did I mention she has done Playboy? Yeah, there's a NSFW pic after the jump.

With the team. Look closely for the Bayer pin

I dunno, but I like this one

It would be a little misleading to say Heidemann is a Playboy model. She appeared in a 2004 (I'm guessing) female athlete-themed issue in the German version of the magazine. It's safe to say that she's not going to show up on the next season of Hugh Hefner Gets Better Trim Than You, or whatever it's called. Still, nudes are nudes, and hers are pretty swell.

I'll leave you here with one oddly-censored photograph from the shoot. If that whets your whistle, then head on over here for a couple of more uncensored ones. Enjoy.

Very pretty. (The new Aberdeen kit, of course.)

Yeah, she doesn't look like any fencer I've ever met

/Fencer? I just met her!

Well, I guess I will now actually watch women's fencing next Summer Olympics...

Great. Now I have a thing for fencers.

Good for her with the Playboy appearance. If anyone from the UK did that I can see them being dropped by the Olympic squad with immediate effect.
