Olympic Hurdler Has Breast Implants Removed to Increase Speed - Jana Rawlinson - Sports - Athletics - gossip - Australia

An Australian track star had her breast implants removed in an attempt to boost her chances of winning a medal at the 2012 Olympics.

In a magazine interview, Jana Rawlinson admitted she spent $13,000 in the past 14 months getting her breasts enhanced — only to have the cosmetic procedure reversed.

"Yep, I'm back to being flat as a pancake," Rawlinson told Woman's Day magazine.

The 27-year-old runner said she had the implants taken out because she felt they were affecting her performance on the track.

"Every time I raced, I panicked about whether I was letting my country down, all for my own vanity," she said.

"I absolutely loved having bigger boobs, but I don't want to short-change Australia either. I want to feel the most athletic I can, to know that I'm standing on the track in London (2012 Olympics) the fittest I can be."
