Dancers and competitors bathing suits: a few more views
My good friend Dana Sanders added some interesting insight here and I'll try to add the link to the WSJ article he refers to when I find it. Bob Graham also added an interesting POV supporting Rosie's role in questioning the jiggle factor at matches and I'll post his note if I get permission.
The latest updated info I have on Guylaine's stance is that she was distracted by the dancers being too close to the court during the match so the FIVB has moved them back for all matches but may have been extra careful to keep them off the court during the technical time outs of her match. In an interview after the match she told a CanWest reporter standing next to me that she wouldn't mind if they would at least throw in a couple of male dancers for the women in the crowd. She's definately being patient with reporters who want to focus on this issue but I find it unfortunate that they're missing some more important angles like her long road back to the top of the sport after the tragic, unsolved murder of her only sister.
I think I'll leave the lost word of this post to Jenna Child (John's 9 year old daughter) who sat next to us watching the female players walk through a throng of dancers as Bridgette Child and I discussed this issue. When asked which should would rather be she responded vigorously "A player!" which brought a smile and a high five from her mom.

Subject: Re: [Athens Journal and Canadian Volleyblog] Fw: Dimanno trashes beach volleyball
fyi ... There's a front page story in todays wall street journal on
beach volleyball. same angle but different presentation. far more
constructive in their observations. less offensive (i'm speaking here
of ms. dimanno's rhetorical question regarding "when does anybody watch
beach volleyball for the volley" and her demeaning of the sport by
putting brackets around the word "discipline"). But, leave it to a
Canadian to critique the success of a sport where americans are stand
outs, understating the fact that the canadians are just as viable and
have little need for sarcastic defendants whose primary aim is to
attack the very sport that the canadians are making their mark within.
Again, the WSJ article contrasts the bland nature of tennis at the
olympics relative to the crazy success of beach volleyball and cites
the raciness as part of the reason offering helpful social critique
balanced with appropriate acknowledgment of the good it brings to the
have a good one my man.
