I was so looking forward to the Olympics 2012 and the centre stage events that would go down at Horse Guard’s Parade, but I am not taking this, I am not having any of it!
This is political and religious meddling in sport and totally against the fundamental principles of the Olympic Charter which states under “6” …”Any form of discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement.“
Every man has his favourite sport and I am no exception. I do not interfere with Rugby and tell the Bulls how ridiculous their pink jerseys are. I do not tell Bafana-Bafana what they should wear.
I detest it when others interfere with my sport. They are rewriting the rules as it suits them!
According to this report …This has nothing to do with the weather. It is political. I quote…
“The International Volleyball Federation has modified its rules to allow "shorts of a maximum length of (1.18 inches) above the knee, and sleeved or sleeveless tops. The rule already applied to continental qualifying competitions and it's designed to provide more flexibility for countries with "religious and cultural requirements," FIVB spokesman Richard Baker told The Associated Press.
See?!!! Some Rag-heads and Camel Jockeys complained about the dress code, now they change the rules to accommodate them and use the weather as an excuse. Do they think we are stupid? It’s just another invasion of our Western cultures, freedoms and human rights. It starts with beach volleyball dress-code and the next thing you know; they want us to cover our women in Burqas and/or other makeshift tents.
Where is this going to end? What is this bollocks?!! This is a disaster. I am boycotting the 2012 Olympics…forthwith! I want riots in the streets. Heads must roll for this.
Olympic beach volleyballers women told they can cover up because of the cool summer
• Female volleyball players can wear shorts and sleeved tops in cold weather
• With cool weather predicted, players can disregard the usual bikini
