Beach Volleyball Cheerleaders
Posted by simon c on 2008 August 16日 Saturday
Beach Volleyball is getting no coverage here in Japan because no Japanese team qualified for the Olympics. But how could the Japanese broadcasters be missing out on the only Olympic sport to be featuring bikini clad cheerleaders like these!? I didn’t even know that beach volleyball competitions had cheerleaders, as if the women’s competition wasn’t eye pleasing enough 😛
Conspicuously, Olympic beach volleyball involves cheerleaders. At first blush, this might seem to argue in favor of its worthiness, but you must understand that these are nonpartisan cheerleaders. To quote NBCOlympics.com, the young ladies simply “use a variety of dances to make sure the fans stay rowdy.” Beach volleyball seems to be alone in Beijing in employing such bikini-clad rabble-rousers. Please correct me if I’m wrong and, in fact, the gals will be prancing over to the track for the triple jump or out to the shooting range for the skeet final.
