Starring gymnast Beth Tweddle, swimmer Rebecca Adlington and beach volleyball players Dampney and partner Shauna Mullin, photographer Perou had an image of magnificent marble statues in his mind before the shoot. In his interview with the magazine he says, "That's how the Grecian Olympian athletes were honoured and how every one of these women deserves to be honoured too." We couldn't agree more.
