The International Olympic Committee, which still refuses to memorialize the Israeli athletes massacred by Muslims at the 1972 Munich Olympics, is stepping up its pandering and appeasement of Muslims. The Committee just ruled that it will no longer require women’s beach volleyball teams to wear bikinis . . . to appease Muslim countries. The Olympics are encouraging Muslim countries, like Saudia Arabia, to send female sports teams to this summer’s London Games, to meet certain feminist-imposed standards. And here is the result–burqa beach volleyball. Oh, and they also decided to change how teams qualify for women’s beach volleyball at the Olympics . . . also to give the Muslimas a chance to compete. See, the Munich Olympic massacre worked.
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.
As the AP reports, the field at London’s beach volleyball competition won’t be dictated by world rankings, as in Olympics past. Qualifying tournaments on various continents will fill the 24-team draw.
Yup, we can’t have the U.S. athletes dominate this sport. Oh, and we need more Muslimas (most of whom no one wants to see in bikinis, lest the shocking memory burn in one’s mind).
Beach volleyball, by the way, is one of the few sports in which the female athletes are actually attractive . . . until they started pushing for the participation of “countries with more modest cultural beliefs” (a/k/a the culture of Hezbollah, HAMAS, Fatah, Muslim Brotherhood, etc., etc., etc.)
Reader “There Is No Santa Claus”:
Yeah, right! I wonder who those “various participating countries” are.
For some reason, Yahoo.com thought this story was worthy of their home page. Imagine that!
Like I said, the Munich Olympic Massacre paid off. 40 years later, still no memorial to the slain Israelis those bastards murdered. And, yet, the Olympics panders ever more to the demands of those bastards and their religion.
