CrossFit Posts Nude Michele Letendre Photos, Internet Explodes
The CrossFit Games is a competition that famously and aggressively strives to be equivalent in its prize and competitive structures regardless of gender.

The reaction has been largely positive, with a lot of respectful comments admiring the fruits of Letendre's hard work and her choice to challenge people's comfort zones. On the other hand, there have been plenty of comments asking why she had to be naked, what nudity has to do with strength, and my personal favorite, "so when is International Men's Day?!"
