The Most Naked Sports At The Olympic Games
A big deal is being made every year about what to show on TV and which sports need to change their uniforms.
I am a friend of Misty May-Treanor on Facebook, part of the two-time gold medal-winning team. She had posted one time about having to wear a bikini to play sand volleyball. She wasn't a fan but said it was a must because if you wear more you will pick up a bunch of sand. It's harder to dive with 8 lbs of sand than it is with a bikini.
She also realized you could buy more secure bikinis. I would imagine if you are diving in said bikini, you aren't wearing the same one the Kardashians are wearing, that is worn to show skin, but the volleyball bikini is worn to avoid sand.
Obviously, I am a man and like seeing women in bikinis, but I have never looked at it as a sexual thing, once they start playing, I only see the women making great plays. I would like to pose this question, why don't the men wear speedos when playing, they dive in the sand too. Then I watched a match and there isn't as much touch, it's just hit hard and score.
However unavoidable it is, these sports have to be almost naked.
1. Beach Volleyball-skimpy bikini on women, enough said. If beach volleyball was a hot sport in the '70s, Charlie's Angels would have played it, and Farah Fawcett would have posed in a volleyball bikini.
2.Diving-Both sexes wear next to nothing in order to slip in the water faster. They have made advancements in diving wear, but it always comes down to wearing something slim and body-hugging. This is another example that the outfit is right for the sport, even though it isn't all that much clothing.
3. Track and field-The men wear shorts, but the women have tight almost bathing suit outfits. I haven't looked into this so I don't know if this is supposed to be what they wear but I would think if all runners wore tight outfits they would glide through the wind better.
4. Water Polo-There's always a chance someone could tear off the swimsuit of one of the players. I think that has happened on live TV, maybe that's why they don't cover the games as much and only show highlights. There isn't much action, and I can't watch for long seeing how much time the players spend underwater. These outfits are tight but aren't foolproof. I think this sport is the most naked of all of them because there aren't any rules for tearing off the suits.
5. Beach Hand Ball-This is basically the same outfit as beach volleyball. I would imagine if you are in the sand, you pick up sand, that's why the bathing suits again. There has been much to do about this sport. Once country wore bicycle-looking shorts and was fined.
There has been much made of camera angles and what's being shown along with the fact that some of the sports don't wear much. Wanna make it interesting? Have some of the Winter sportswear some of these uniforms.
