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.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
