Athlete/model/actress Stacy Oversier

Yes, Stacy Oversier has been all of these. :-D

Stacy Oversier was a rhythmic gymnast, and she trained in Los Angeles under Russian coach Alla Svirsky.  She went on to be a member of the American rhythmic gymnastics team eight times and a member the World Championship Team three times.  She was chosen as the most beautiful female athlete in 1986 by Sport magazine. :-)

When Bruce Weber photographed her along with other Olympic hopefuls for another magazine, he sent some of her photos to Vogue's Grace Coddington, who had her booked for a session with Patrick Demarchelier in Paris, and her modeling career quickly began.  The above photo is from the cover of a special edition of a fitness magazine from the year 2000, when she was with the Elite agency, focusing on her abilities as athlete as much as on her modeling skills. :-) 

Her films have included the action movies The Guardian and Invincible
