Victoria's Secret Nude model Elsa Hosk is a former Swedish professional basketball player
Many of our readers undoubtedly watched the Victoria's Secret fashion show last night. A stunning display of style, beauty, art, and a whole host of other adjectives that probably aren't safe for work.
At one point during the hour long episode, the models spoke about their childhood and their more formidable years before Victoria's Secret. As they all took in pictures, one flashed on the screen of a stunning blonde playing basketball. We did our due diligence in researching whether any of the lovely ladies had played basketball in college and what do you know, something turned up.
Meet 5'9″ Elsa Hosk, one of the new Victoria's Secret models, who at one point in her life played professional basketball in Sweden.

"I took a 2 year break [from modeling] because I was a professional basketball player in Sweden," the 23-year-old told us. "It's not anything like the WNBA, I mean basketball is not that big in Sweden," Hosk said with a self-deprecating laugh. "But it was still very tough. We worked out probably like eight times a week, and then it was games on the weekend. It took up a lot of time, it got really serious and [I realized] I wanted to explore the world and meet people and not be tied down."
