I guess the feats of athleticism in beach volleyball in London, however, have been sparse, as the attire, not the competition has received the most press.
For those who are unfamiliar with the sport, a female beach volleyball athlete wears little more than what the masses would call a bikini as a uniform. As for those, including some members of the media, who have evidently been put off by this, I can only ask, "What did you expect the uniform of choice to be for a sport that evolved on beaches in sunny climes? Parkas?" We assume that a sport using such fashionable parlance as "chicken wing", "kill", "cobra", and "missile" would feature athletes who are contemporaneously attired.
|Are the toned, tanned, scantily clad proving too much for some in the press?|
Besides, are beach volleyball athletes any less scantily attired than some track and field athletes? Not really. The only difference is that one is wearing shoes and the other is barefooted. Perhaps the podophiles are having a field day? Please excuse the pun.
As always, some phenomenal stories will come out of the Games. Let's dwell on those and devote a little less press to uniforms.
