CrossFit Games Athlete Joins Other Sportswomen to Model Like Victoria’s Secret Angels

"I never, in a million years, thought I'd take pictures in lingerie, but it was for a cause far greater than myself and my insecurities. I walked away inspired, empowered, and with a new found confidence. But more importantly, hope to help others feel the same."

Jamie Hagiya finished 18th at last years Crossfit games and is also a box owner. She worked with Buzzfeed and Sky Cowans on an exciting new project and video exploring the topic of female body image.

This is my body. Everyday I’m still learning to love and accept it. It’s definitely a process but I’m so thankful for incredible people like @skycowans from @buzzfeed for opening up conversation about body image in the media and how we’re progressing societally. Thank you for allowing us to represent a diverse group of strong female athletes with all different body types.
