Bikini tensions mar Islamic games in Indonesia
AFP News ^ | September 20, 2013

The Islamic Solidarity Games open in Indonesia this weekend following a chaotic run-up, with controversy over female athletes competing in sports bikinis adding to the turmoil.

Some nations demanded that all women cover up for the beach volleyball, track and field, and swimming events, but organizers have refused to axe the two-piece sporting outfits.

"If some countries do not want to use the bikini, that's fine, but if other countries want to, we will allow that," senior organizing committee member Djoko Pramono told AFP.

The Burqa 400M Swim Medley

More like the Burqa 40M Swin Medley - 38 meters forward and then 2 meters down to the bottom of the pool when the burqa becomes completely saturated.

The obvious solution is to have separate events for the "Swimming in Your Burka" crowd. And, for sure, there needs to be separate records kept for Burka Swim Events since it is obvious that all that luggage is going to slow the swimmers down.

Makes sense to me. See the photo below. And no, that is not a bunny rabbit costume. That is just a typical modest swimsuit suitable for Olympic competition.

No way anyone wearing that outfit will win anything. Too much drag and floppy material.

Muslim men really have no self control, do they? Somehow the rest of the world can look at a woman in a bikini and not rape them.

Not so much that as much as they are set fiends. They just blame and punish the women for their lack of character.

And that, son, is how beach volleyball and the hammer throw became the new biathalon event at the Muslim Games.

This just in....A new record was set in the Suicide Bombing competition, when Muhammad Al-Keffir of Yemen blew himself up in a record 1.8 seconds............No, wait, it’s been disallowed because the judges determined it was wind-aided. Sorry Muhammad, maybe next time.

How does a seal sit up like that? Or is it a sea lion?

Off topic, how will these women compete when the Pole Dancing event takes place?

RE:#10
Someone needs to photoshop a head in place of the ball.
Ok, maybe a goat head for the politically correct crown.

I love watching Brazilian beach volleyball teams playing in English speaking countries. Their tops are always labelled BRA.

I amuse easily.
