Female beach volleyball players yesterday vowed that they would keep wearing their bikinis despite admitting it was upsetting that the sport was known only for skimpy outfits. Zara Dampney and Shauna Mullin, who form part of Britains first ever Olympic beach volleyball team, said bikinis were still the best kit for the sport, despite rule changes which would allow them to cover up if they wished. Its perfect for our sport, Miss Mullin, 27, said. We play in hot countries and I cant imagine wearing anything else on the sand. I will still be wearing my bikini.
