WENGEN, SWITZERLAND — Rainer Schoenfelder lost a bet Wednesday, and paid for it by skiing nude down the Lauberhorn.The 29-year-old Austrian skier, who hurt his neck and back in a crash last week, lost a bet with his physiotherapist, who had been treating his injuries. Schoenfelder had vowed to ski naked if his pains had lessened by Wednesday morning.Schoenfelder skied wearing only yellow boots and an orange helmet and gloves, and a photographer snapped a shot of the skier that has been circulated on the Internet."Somehow I didn't notice the photographer," Schoenfelder said. "It was an internal bet and of course the whole thing wasn't planned for the public."I am happy, though, that the pains have eased up and that it was not cold when I honored my debt."
