Olympics: Less Bikinis?

Well, this is enlightening. The 2012 Summer Olympics in London will mark the first change in Olympic beach volleyball since 1996 in Atlanta. At least the dress code, that is. Instead of strictly bikinis, players will be allowed to wear tops with sleeves and shorts.

“Shorts of a maximum length of [1.18 inches] above the knee, and sleeved or sleeveless tops,” is what the IOC ruling states.

What’s the cause for the change? It’s an effort to be more inclusive and respectful of other cultural beliefs of other countries that may wish to participate. “Many of these countries have religious and cultural requirements, so the uniform needed to be more flexible.” Richard Baker, spokesman for FIVB said Tuesday. Times, they are a’changin’, folks.
