She hopes the project will revolutionise the body image debate and feels that the variety of body types portrayed on such a global scale is something “we should embrace and celebrate.”
Fox collates her data from the official Olympics website and the illustrated infographic will detail their name, age, height, weight, and sport. Fox said that the first thing she noticed when she started working on the London project was that the fastest woman in the world, Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce is tiny. She is 5’ 0” (152 cm).
“It made me realise how many preconceived ideas I had about what sports were even an option for a short woman (I’m 160 cm), and the exciting discovery that you can be any body type shape or size and find a sport that you can partake in!’
“I think it’s going to be really beautiful, archival and a great resource for girls, young woman, schools, universities, and sport institutes”
The Kickstarter campaign ends on Friday 26th August and you can support and donate to the campaign here.
