Petra Nemcova

Petra Nemcova

Petra Nemcova Petra Nemcová (born June 24, 1979) (sometimes spelled Nemcova, pronounced ['nemtsova]) is a Czech supermodel.

Nemcová was born in Karviná, Czechoslovakia and she was featured on the cover of the 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and has also modeled for Victoria's Secret and other companies in the women's clothing market. In June of 2004, she was one of the telecast judges during the 53rd annual Miss Universe competition in Quito, Ecuador.

In December 2004, Nemcová was at the Khao Lak resort in Thailand with Simon Atlee, her main photographer and fiancé, when the resort was struck by a tsunami triggered by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. Atlee was pulled out to sea and drowned. Nemcová managed to hold onto a palm tree for eight hours before being rescued and airlifted out to an inland hospital, where doctors found that she had suffered a broken pelvis and serious internal injuries. She spent three weeks in a Thai hospital before returning to the Czech Republic, where she was hospitalized an additional three weeks. Her first interview after her near-death experience was with Diane Sawyer on ABC's Primetime, on March 9, 2005. Nemcová has also spoken about her experiences on CNN's Larry King Live.

Glamour Magazine recently awarded Nemcová a "Survivor Award" for the tsunami ordeal, and how she has picked up her life since then (her comeback being complete with her appearance in the 2006 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue). In December 2005, Nemcová's book Love Always, Petra (ISBN 0446579130) was published by Warner. It tells of her early life under communist rule in Czechoslovakia, her entrance into the field of fashion and modeling, and her breakthrough into Sports Illustrated. She also tells of her life with Atlee and how they fell in love and became engaged.
