Japanese sprinter Maya Nakanishi published a calendar featuring her posing semi-nude with her prosthetic leg to help fund her training and trip to the London Paralympic Games. Nakanishi lost her right leg below the knee in a workplace accident when she was 21, then became a sprinter with her prosthetic limb. She is the Asian record holder in the T44 (one leg amputated below the knee) 200 meter and long jump and she was the first Japanese woman to be at the starting line in a 100 meter final race in the 2008 Beijing Paralympic.
