The Team GB marbles … stars are turned into Greek statues.
Olympians Rebecca Adlington and Victoria Pendleton have been turned into classical Greek statues by a celebrity photographer.
The swimmer and cyclist were among the female Team GB athletes who posed for a photo shoot for Grazia magazine. Each of them was spray-painted for up to two hours to achieve the marbled look. They were captured by Perou, who has also pictured David Beckham and Vivienne Westwood.
He said: “That’s how the Grecian Olympian athletes were honoured and how every one of these women deserves to be honoured too.”
Perou photographed the athletes at training camps around Britain as they prepare for Olympic test and selection events.
One of the trickiest, said Perou, was marathon champion Paula Radcliffe who needed to pose “precariously” as though she was on the finishing line.
