Thanks International Volleyball Federation! It’s really nice to know that Olympic athletes no longer have to dress like Vegas mud wrestlers to play beach volleyball. Quite a relief that women from countries with religious or cultural objections (see Rwandans above) can choose to expose less as opposed to more of their bodies.
But when you look at the uniforms now accepted by the IVF, you really have to wonder how they got to the current uniforms to begin with and why women play a sport in costumes clearly aimed at men.
