Because they would look bloody stupid running in a duffel coat.


In Fact, Maybe we should have a Duffel coat Olympics. I would pay good money to see the hundred meters butterfly in Duffel coat and Wellingtons.

Well they look a lot better than if they were wearing Burqa's, and I don't think that wearing what amounts to a non skimpy bathing suit counts as scanty. I wore far less when I was younger. Don't like any clothing nazi's. Real Hippy here!

It is all about maneuverability. You would not go out to run in pants for instance, as that is just more weight, more stuff in the way, more resistance, etc. Personally I do not think this is objectifying women at all. I also think that if someone finds this offensive that the problem lies with them, not with what the women are wearing. These women are not exposing anything, and it is just the human body. We all know the anatomy of males and females, and should be mature enough to view such things accordingly, instead of getting offended or viewing it as inappropriate. It would only be inappropriate if they were exposing parts of their body that goes beyond the bounds of modesty and decency...And if their upstairs and downstairs are covered, there should not be a problem. Females have breasts, and modesty requires that they be covered. The reason that men wear actual jerseys or shirts and women do not is because the material that the women use must be sturdier, so the girls don't go bouncing all over the place.

Again, anatomy. Men don't have this problem, therefore they can wear looser and thinner material. That is my take on it anyway, and I think there are many more immodest things to be upset about, including some of the sexually provocative commercials all over the television. I do not think it is acceptable to advertise male enhancement drugs, phone sex, etc. during commercials. You can control the programs your children watch, but nobody ever thinks about the commercials. We view this as social advancement or progress, but children should not be exposed to these things. But the clothing women are wearing in sporting events is fine, because it is not sexually provocative. The women are not behaving in a sexually provocative manner, unlike many of the commercials on television, or even print ads, pop up ads online, etc...

As a male athlete, the less you wear/more tight fitting - the faster you perform, avoid friction burn and cool down/recover quicker.

Most if not all male athletes also wear as little as possible with tight fitting clothes to avoid rubbing sores - I do Ice races in skin tops and speedos to keep clothing levels to a bare minimum to avoid chaffing/hypothermia. I doubt most could give a rats arse about what men think of what they're wearing - part from a significant number in gyms of course, but that goes both ways.

Forty-somethings are the sexiest-somethings, imo. However, hand egg can be a very rough sport!

Because due to sexually repressed religious nuts athletes must be clothed .. unlike back in ancient times when athletes competed naked .. bring back the ancient way of competing ...
