We need pictures of what female beach volleyball players might look like.

I have a solution. Instead of playing to victory by 2 points, in the event of a tie the team with the best uniforms wins.

Even better... in the event of a tie, the players remove their uniforms completely and then the uniforms are weighed. The team with the lowest uniform weight in the winner!

Well, not necessarily. Many men will say, "the jiggling boobs that I want to play with" but some men will say "the tight asses that I want to slap."

At least players needn't worry about skin damage from the harsh sunlight of the British Isles anymore.

There will never be a uniform modest enough that will allow women from the Middle east to compete, so why bother?

Well, short of that, I'm pretty sure whatever they come up with will be pretty hot.

And the losers have to take theirs off and scissor each other.

Considering for many of the teams it's all they wear when they play, they'll still be wearing it.

Actually the best thing about women's beach volleyball is that it far more of a real game than men's volleyball. Once the ball is spiked in men's volleyball that's usually it--there is far more strategy and endurance involved in women's volleyball more generally. With the sand as an inertial frame it becomes another complicating factor all the more, leading to higher efforts of athleticism.

And yes, that too. But the first part is the best part.

I only watch women's beach volleyball for the articles.

The time is clearly here for a naked version of the olympics. Competition in gymnastics, volleyball, and (of course) Twister. Put it on pay-per-view and offer more prize money than real gymnastic and volleyball competitions could even dream of.

There's a million dollar idea for y'all. I'd do it myself, but I'm already in my pajamas.

I don't know. That number sounds awfully low.

That's also what the Olympians will be wearing for indoor (six-player) volleyball.

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.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Women beach volleyball players don't have to wear bikinis at Olympics

Holy fark, really?!

"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.

Wow. That's actually pretty progressive, considering that it used to be that female competitors were banned from the Olympics if they wore too much clothing.

Shiat, I like seeing women in bikinis as much as the next guy, if not more, but I'd rather have them do so willingly than have arbitrary rules that force them to do so.

I'm not sure what the issue is, subby. They're not trying to ban bikinis. They're saying "you can wear whatever you like" to encourage the sport's growth. Whatever gives women more choices is fine.

European/American/Brazilian girls will still wear bikinis regardless, and if they don't then that means they never felt comfortable in the bikinis to begin with and they shouldn't be forced to wear them. Despite the T&A, these girls are still athletes, not strippers.

It all sounds pretty reasonable to me.
