Elena Krawzow, first Paralympic athlete to make the cover of Playboy

published on: 22/09/2020 9:25 PM

At 26, Elena Krawzow became the first female Paralympic athlete to pose nude in the renowned Playboy magazine. The young woman posed sensually and also spoke about various aspects of her life, and what it is like having Stargardt’s disease.

Elena began to swim at the age of 13, a year before the German began to suffer the consequences of the hereditary disease, where she began to lose her vision. From that moment, she excelled in the discipline and at 16 she was invited to be part of a club in Nürnberg. Then came the triumphs being a three-time world champion and a silver medalist in London 2012.

Regarding her illness, she said:  “It affects the retina. The center with which you can see more clearly has been extinguished, so to speak, in my case, so I have a very limited field of vision. I can still see something at the edge of the field of view. It is not that it has a black dot in the middle, but that the images overlap. Today I can still see 3%, but everything is very, very blurry ”.

Ja, es ist wahr!⁣ ⁣ Ich bin die erste Paralympicssportlerin auf dem Playboy Cover 😇⁣ ⁣ Diese Möglichkeit konnte ich nicht ausschlagen und bin sehr dankbar für die Anfrage vom @playboygermany 🐰⁣ ⁣ Mit dem Shooting möchte ich ein Zeichen setzen, für mehr Toleranz in der Gesellschaft. Dafür, dass auch Menschen mit einer Behinderung alles schaffen können und sich nicht verstecken, auch wenn man nicht so ist wie die meisten, denn nicht jede Behinderung sieht man auf der ersten Blick.Vielfalt gehört zur Gesellschaft und Toleranz bringt uns alle weiter. Nun ja, jetzt bin ich also im Playboy 😁⁣ ⁣ Die zwei Tage Shooting, die ich erleben durfte, waren großartig. Ich habe es mir schon immer gewünscht mal einen Tag als Profimodel zu erleben und das habe ich getan, es hat mir viel Spaß gemacht 📷⁣ ⁣ Es sind sehr viele wunderschöne ästhetische Bilder entstanden. Ihr könnt euch gerne die Zeitung ab morgen online oder im Zeitschriftenladen kaufen und die wundervolle Arbeit ansehen 💕⁣ ⁣ Jetzt lüfte ich das Geheimnis, morgen geht’s führ mich nach München zur Playmate Wiesen Party 😃⁣ ⁣ Ich bin sehr gespannt was auf mich zu kommt und freue mich sehr auf den Abend. Ich werde euch natürlich so gut es geht davon berichten, damit ihr auch einen kleinen Einblick bekommen könnt.⁣ ⁣ 📸: Sacha Höchstetter für PLAYBOY Oktober 2020 #playboygermany #alleswasmännerlieben #teamkrawzow #playboy #berlin #cover #playboycover #schwimmen #swimming #paraswimming #paraathlete #paraswimmer #visualimpairment #sehbehinderung #lebenmitbehinderung #toleranz #gesellschaft #berlingirl #werbung #ad

“If true! “I am the first female Paralympian on the cover of Playboy. ” I could not deny this possibility. I want to give an example of more tolerance in society. So that people with disabilities can create anything and not hide, even if you are not like most, because not all disabilities are seen at first glance, diversity is part of society and tolerance helps us all ”.

But also, the athlete reflected on her journey: “It is not easy to make a place in society when you have a disability, I say this from my own experience”, and indicated that a level of perfection is sought, especially in the industry of the fashion. She stated: “It is important to me that people do not judge people with disabilities so quickly. It doesn’t matter if you are different for most of the world: you have to stand up, accept yourself, and love yourself as you are.
