Olympic Committee changes womens beach volleyball bikini rule for…

Guess who? via Women beach volleyball players don’t have to wear bikinis at Olympics | Fourth-Place Medal – Yahoo! Sports.

Women beach volleyball players won’t have to wear bikinis at the 2012 London Olympics. A new rule announced Tuesday says that participants in this summer’s beach volleyball competition can wear shorts and sleeved tops.

Athletes in the event have exclusively worn bikinis since the sport was introduced at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Competitors could also wear bodysuits in cold-weather events.

The change was made to reflect cultural conventions of various participating countries.

“Shorts of a maximum length of [1.18 inches] above the knee, and sleeved or sleeveless tops,” will now be allowed, according to the new IOC ruling.

Since the Beijing Olympics, most beach volleyball competitions have changed rules to allow for more modest uniforms. It’s an attempt to broaden the diversity in the sport, which tends to be dominated by athletes from Europe, Brazil and the United States. Allowing shorts and shirts can encourage participation from countries with more modest cultural beliefs.

Of course the media won’t dare mention who the rule change is for, but we all know.

  1. The rules above still do not include what these Muslim “slaves” are wearing!

  2. MOSLEMS, MOSLEMS, MOSLEMS..Just a bunch of wet nosed whining BABIES..Peace to all non-moslems who know who it is.

  3. I don’t see this as creeping sharia, but as not objectifying women in general.,

    • If you don’t see this as creeping Sharia, then surely you won’t mind wearing clothes that completely cover you from head to toe except for a hole to see through, even when it’s over 100 degrees outside. That way you won’t feel “objectified”

  4. Let them. They will discover that without the bikinis they will not be able to compete well. Plus the fans will boo them. Should be fun to watch.

  5. Just keep giving in to the muzzies and very soon you will find that you have nothing left to give except for your life. STOP giving in to these ass wipes.

  6. Let’s just simply continue to go “backward-in-time!” Eventually, we will be back in the days of the “caveman!”

  8. What a bunch of killjoys! And once again Dhimmified Britsin capitulates to Islam. The best way to protest this oppresive law is by wearing a bikini.

  9. But the moes cannot wear shorts or short sleeved tops either, right? So this change will not be good enough for them, of course nothing ever is.

  10. I think this is a good thing. I’m an atheist, so no religion is involved in my view. (and i think Islam is terrible) In high school, I really wanted to play on the volleyball team, but the uniforms were skimpy booty shorts and sport bra looking tops that I would never wear. I ended up playing softball instead. girls should be allowed to wear modest clothing in sports if it doesn’t have an impact on playing the sport. not all girls feel comfortable wearing skimpy clothing, regardless of religion.

    • I agree- I am a Christian who believes in modesty so I would be uncomfortable in a bikini. There are other people who believe in modesty- including atheists- so it is not really a Muslim appeasing move. Although it would be strange for one girl to be wearing shorts and a t while everyone else is in a bikini.

  11. I for one am proud of the Committee for adamantly refusing to make the hijab compulsory.

  12. This would make good comedy if it wasn’t so pathological. Screw it, let’s just have the Multicultural Olympics where everyone shows up in traditional garb and traditional superstition and and everyone gets a gold medal. Wouldn’t that be sweet?

  13. “It’s an attempt to broaden the diversity in the sport, which tends to be dominated by athletes from Europe, Brazil and the United States. Allowing shorts and shirts can encourage participation from countries with more modest cultural beliefs.”

    Excuse me, does somebody care? I despise the word “diversity”. There’s a university here in Texas that advertises its “diversity”. Excuse me, but what the hell does diversity have to do with higher education? Maybe they can make the Olympics a “Muslim Outreach” institution like Obama wants to make NASA.

  14. I agree with Pray Hard. If they don’t care to wear the generally accepted garb for beach volleyball, then they can choose to NOT COMPETE.

    I don’t mind letting them wear a t-shirt and shorts to compete in, but let’s not just bend over backwards for Islam. We keep doing that, and one day we’ll all be bent forward with orders to either convert or be beheaded.

  15. I guess I don’t see the big deal…The IOC didn’t make it compulsory to wear more clothing, nor did they make it compulsory to wear a bikini. They merely gave the athletes more freedom in making the choices to compete in whatever is most comfortable for them. Perhaps they had ulterior motives, but from what I can tell, every athlete is able to wear a bikini if they so desire. Nobody bent over backwards to change to the rules for anybody. It’s volleyball. Were it swimming and they said that everyone had to wear a dress in the water, I’d understand. But this? Admit it. You’re just mad because you can’t see the boobies as well.

  16. Great, just Great !! Now the Muslims can behead anyone caught wearing a bikini !!!
