Katarina Witt's competitive Olympic days are all done, but when people think of athletes (and especially Olympians) who have graced the pages of Playboy magazine, her name still comes to mind. As the Winter Games get underway, fans once again find themselves searching for the German figure skater's Playboy spread.

Katarina Witt last competed in the Olympics in 1994 at the age of 28, but it was four years later that she posed for Playboy. She holds the distinction of being only the second Playboy covergirl whose issue completely sold out. The first was Marilyn Monroe.

In honor of Katarina Witt's willingness to bare it all, here's here Playboy cover along with a list of other athletes who have appeared in the magazine.
