World-class German beach volleyball pros, Karla Borger and Julia Sude, are drawing their line in the sand and boycotting an upcoming tournament in Qatar over a policy that prohibits women from wearing skimpy bikinis on the court. Per The Guardian...
quote:

German beach volleyball stars Karla Borger and Julia Sude have said they will boycott a tournament in Qatar because it is “the only country” where players are forbidden from wearing bikinis on court.

“We are there to do our job, but are being prevented from wearing our work clothes,” Borger told radio station Deutschlandfunk on Sunday. “This is really the only country and the only tournament where a government tells us how to do our job – we are criticising that.”

Qatar is hosting the upcoming FIVB World Tour event but strict rules about on-court clothing have led the world championships silver medallist Borger and her doubles partner Sude to shun the event. …

[F]emale players have been asked to wear shirts and long trousers rather than the usual bikinis, a rule which the world beach volleyball federation, FIVB, claims is “out of respect for the culture and traditions of the host country”.

Borger and Sude told Spiegel magazine during the weekend they “would not go along with” the rules imposed by the Qatari authorities. Borger said that they would normally be happy to “adapt to any country”, but that the extreme heat in Doha meant that bikinis were necessary.

Beach volleyball stinks. Women's college volleyball is the shite. Either way, I enjoy watching the ladies dig their shorts out of their arse every play.

They are right. Didn't the Saudis also give WWE a hardtime about what the women wore? Screw these cavemen.

The heat was the reasoning? Wow I actually backed them up for a second. Theres clearly a middle ground here but the ladies true motivation is an elephant in the room. We all value ourselves for different things. Women choose their bodies too often.

The heat was the reasoning? Where you get that, Clark? You sound like a fat chick or a ghey. Never complain about skinny chicks in bikinis

@TFH "Borger said that they would normally be happy to “adapt to any country”, but that the extreme heat in Doha meant that bikinis were necessary." It's right there in the article you didn't bother to read.

They should have announced that they would be willing to play in one piece outfits, and inquired whether the event hosts would perfer them to play topless or bottomless.
