However, I stand by the idea that this was a fierce competition and she was determined to win. The only way she was going to be able to do it was to drop additional weight after the triathlon. David, her closest competitor, lost more than 52% of his starting weight. She had to bring it to take home the prize.



Yes, I understand this. I do not think you can call it "skinny-shaming" as that implies that people were frowning at her for being thin when they weren't. They are frowning at her for being unhealthily thin in order to win a competition; for valuing money over her health.

It's her choice, to be sure, but it's hardly skinny-shaming.
