    This story (see website URL) has been unfolding in Australia over the past few days and has caused quite a stir in the shooting world down under.

    Lauryn Mark, (pictured below) is going to compete for Australia at the London Olympics in Skeet Shooting. She has decided to strip off some of her clothes for a Men's Magazine. The publication is called "Zoo Weekly" and is by far the biggest selling magazine of its type in the country.

    Feelings are divided here whether this will be a good or bad for thing for the image of the sport of Shooting in our country.

    On the flip side Lauryn said the money she is receiving, (reported as $50,000), is being donated to the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, which the hospital has publicly stated yesterday that they are grateful for the donation. Apparently last year the couple raised over $60,000 for charity through their Corporate Clay Target Shooting business which was donated to the same hospital in Melbourne.

    Lauryn is the wife of our highest profile shooter, Russell Mark, who is himself an Olympic Gold Medallist and is going to his sixth Olympics in London. Russell is one of the favourites to be the Australian Team Flag Bearer at the Opening Ceremony, but rumours are now circulating within the sporting community here that the semi naked photos of his wife will cost him this prestigious position because of the negative publicity it may cause.

    The magazine is due to be released just prior to the Olympics. The other pictures posted are from the promotional pictures the magazine is using of Lauryn on a men's website prior to the publication being publicly released.

    Similar threads on this topic have appeared on some other forums both here in Australia and also in the USA and England with very mixed comments.

    I would be interested in your thoughts whether this is a good image for the sport? How would it be perceived in the United States?

    I would think that it's between Mark and his lovely bride. Other than that the gesture is great.

    May her implants hold up well. Wonder if she got them for the magazine shoot or now feels the balloons make her "hot" and she wants to show them off a bit. Tis indeed between her and her husband. Perhaps she could market a topless skeet shooting film.

    Other countries have more liberal views of nudity and many times it really isn't consided pornograpy as much as it is art.

    Think thats way out there? What's better in a formative population - looking at pictures of someone with a nice body or watching violence and gore as mainstream entertainment?

    As far as a good image for our sport - well it beats the real image which is a bunch of fat guys getting sunburns. Heck yea lets have a breath of fresh air as it were.

    Just as long as the Trap Shooters don't start taking their clothes off. Could you imagine an issue featuring the "Big Dogs"?

    Yikes!!!

    I second Wolfram's comments above. As to the implant remark, she looks too be young enough to have natural outstanding assets.(pun intended)

    Doorknee,

    As the Governator would say: EXACTAMUNDO!

    THE END DOES NOT JUSTIFY THE MEANS! A "cheesy" way of donating for charity.

    Whose life is going to be affected adversely of all the nay sayers or those in favor of it? I doubt that any men whether self-rightgeous or a scallywag (such as myself) will turn their eyes away from such a view unless you are not a confident heterosexual. (I love that line from Rustler's Rhapsody). Its just a another minor speed bump in life, but at least the view won't suck.

    I have to agree with Chip, . . . Image of the sport, hahahaha. By the way 391 shooter, I swam in a natural lake and a man made lake, and I equally enjoyed both and couldn't tell the difference. I imagine most would say the same about outstanding assets.

    A beautiful naked woman, a champion shooter, and a yearly substantial donation to a charity. It doesn't get any better than that.

    I don't like this idea at all. How about for every target they break people donate money and they can give it to this charity? How can anyone agree that this is a good thing for them, and the sport?
