      Speed skater Lee Sang-hwa, the reigning Olympic champion in the women's 500 m, flashed her feminine charms to the fullest recently by posing for the February issue of men's magazine Esquire.

      During a five-hour photo shoot at a studio in Seoul last month, she wore five dresses and posed like a professional while showing off her athletic physique.

      "I initially felt shy and awkward in front of the cameras, but I soon found my focus," she said later.

      Lee is currently working on reducing her starting times at the Taeneung Training Center along with teammate Mo Tae-bum, who also aims to defend his Olympic title at the men's 500 m.
