Olympic skier who posed topless will compete in the Olympics

The Lebanese Olympic skier who posed topless in photographs and a video that circulated on the Internet says her country's sports officials still support her.

Three years ago, Jacky Chamoun posed for a calendar photo shoot. Behind-the-scenes footage recently was posted online, and Lebanon's Sports and Youth Minister reportedly ordered an investigation.

But Chamoun says in an interview Thursday with The Associated Press after slalom training that most people have been "supporting me and defending me."

Youssef Chamel Khalil, the administrator of Lebanon's Olympic Alpine team, says "there is no problem" for Chamoun and she will compete in the Sochi Games.

The 22-year-old Chamoun is scheduled to race in the Olympic slalom Feb. 21.
