A Contrast in Cultures

An essay, with photos, of the very different uniforms employed by the women's volleyball teams of Egypt and Germany. It strikes me that the Egyptians are competing at a major disadvantage, although it is wintertime in Brazil.

(Ironic, given that this is the summer Olympics, but it's true.)

Still, this will probably resolve itself. The way Germany is going, they'll be competing in burqinis any day now.
