Best Known As:
The bikini-wearing squash player
Vicky Botwright, a world-ranked pro in the racquet sport squash, made headlines when she announced plans to wear a bikini-style outfit while competing in the 2001 British Open. The "thong," as it became known, was banned by the governing Women's International Squash Players Association (WISPA). The incident earned heavy press coverage in Britain; Botwright opened her own Web site and became a modest online celebrity. Her squash tournament victories include the 2004 Forbes Open in 2004 and the 2005 Yokohama Open.
