Well, it had to be Julie Bindel whining about it, didn\’t it?
The British women\’s beach volleyball team\’s new design of, ahem, kit, reveals more than the fact that women\’s sport is still not taken seriously. Looking like extras on the set of Baywatch, the team, spotted this week on London\’s Horse Guards Parade \”warm-up\” before the Olympics, wore less material between them than you would expect on a size 14 M&S T-shirt.
As one commentator put it, women wear beachwear to play beach sport.
But there\’s more to it than just that.
Female athletes have been wearing female athlete\’s clothing for some time now.
