I am sick of hearing complaints about the Olympic beach volleyball women's "tiny" swimsuits.
Anyone who has ever actually, oh I dunno, PLAYED beach volleyball understands the reason.
- Loose swimsuit = chaffing + jiggling of the sisters upstairs
- More-coverage swimsuit = hot (it's fricking hard to MOVE in sand...hello?)
- One-piece swimsuit = restricted movement
In short, anything other than a skin-tight, small, two-piece suit will result in a distraction to the athlete. I'm sure some athletes would play naked if there wasn't a risk of sand in their girlie-bits. Been there. Owie!
