Recalling the days when Olympic athletes competed without clothing, Powerade asked some U.K. Olympians to show their form.

Powerade is a Coke brand and the marketing director for Coca-Cola Great Britan wanted to celebrate the bodies of the athletes, not just their achievements during the competition.
