Skirts and shirts with Curves!

Interesting that our values dictate that we use sex to increase viewership since this became the expectation in sports. Other third-world-countries “backward” thinking in their treatment of women is now applied by us in the West! Are women no more than SEX OBJECTS?

Table Tennis-Women urged to wear shirts with “curves”

By Simon Rabinovitch

BEIJING, Aug 19 (Reuters) – Table tennis is desperate to attract more viewersand some in the sport believe a simple enough solution exists: get the women to wear skirts and shirts with “curves”.

Half-empty stands for women’s games at the Olympics in China, the country most obsessed with table tennis, reinforce concerns that the sport needs a make-over to shed its fusty image.

Women players mostly wear baggy shorts and shirts unlike their tennis counterparts who dress for comfort as well as style.

“We are trying to push the players to use skirts and also nicer shirts, not the shirts that are made for men, but ones with more curves,” International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) vice president Claude Bergeret said.

One player, Japan’s Naomi Yotsumoto, has taken matters into her own hands. At the Japanese national championships last year, she played in a daring ensemble of her own design: knee socks, a pleated mini-skirt and a shirt that left one shoulder bare. (Editing by Nick Macfie) – Source
