Wardrobe Malfunction

Although they say that in the original Olympic Games in ancient Greece (circa 776 BC) the athletes competed pretty much in the nude, these days a proper uniform is required.

(Using a broad definition of "proper uniform"... What works for one sport does not work for another. The stuff worn by the Beach Volleyball players would not work for, say, weightlifting... But it might make wrestling more interesting.)

However- perhaps reverting to a all-nude competition at Water Polo might add a level of fairness to the game... Seems to me there were quite a few instances where the uniforms worn by the players were used as convenient handles to slow down or impede a player's movement...

See semi-NSFW pics after the break.

Yep, too bad they don't have 'holding' calls... LOL

I don't think Nude Water Polo would completely eliminate the problem of interference through unfair grasping.


You know you really need some good emoticons.
