Australian World Champion has breast implants removed in hopes of Olympic Gold

Before Talk about commitment to your sport.

Australian Star hurdler and Olympic hopeful Jana Rawlinson has had her breast implants removed in a bid to run and jump hurdles faster at the next Olympic games in London.

"I absolutely loved having bigger boobs, but finally I've grown up enough to know myself; to be honest about who I am when I look in the mirror," Rawlinson said.

"I don't want to short-change Australia either - I want to feel the most athletic I can, to know that I'm standing on the track in London the fittest I can be." (see before and after implant photo right)

The double 400m world champion recently told Woman's Day magazine that she wanted bigger breasts because she wasn't happy with her muscular and athletic build.


"When I looked in the mirror I just saw muscled arms, broad shoulders and big, strong legs," she said. "These are assets I need to run well, but they didn't make me feel like an attractive woman," she told the magazine. (see after implant photo above)

"There are a couple of girls - who I won't name - in world athletics who are Olympic champions, but they look like men and I don't want to be like that."
