It seems every time the Olympics come around, a scandal shows up.

This year, it’s no different though – this one is a bit silly and involves some risque photos.

Lebanese skier Jackie Chamoun took part in a photoshoot for an annual calendar shot by Mexican Olympic skier Hubertus von Hohenlohe. Chamoun did disrobe for the shoot, but items were strategically placed some her kibbles and bits would be hidden. In short, it was nothing more than you’d see in most magazine photoshoots.

Unfortunately, outtakes from the shoot have emerged online which do feature Chamoun naked.

Because of that, Chamoun has been on the receiving end of much controversy. That lead to the Lebanese skier apologizing today via Facebook, though, the Lebanese Olympic Committee say they will take no action over the photos.

The photos of Chamoun appear in the 2014 calendar and while risqué, do not show her naked. The calendar has been out since late last year, but in recent days, far more explicit images and video have surfaced online that Chamoun says are from behind-the-scenes material that she hadn’t seen and wasn’t meant to be public.
