Indonesia vs. Yemen: Beach Volleyball & Cheer Squads...
Yemen played Indonesia in the beach volleyball tournament at the Asian Games being held in China. Yemen lost. However, what makes this story interesting and fun is the reason Yemen lost. According to the Yemenis, they lost the match because the bikini wearing cheer squads that jump out and then jump around during the breaks in the volleyball action were too distracting.
It is a pretty good excuse when you think about it. I am guessing that the young men from Yemen do not get a lot of scantily clad bikini cheer squads at their local tournaments. In contrast, Indonesia has no trouble at all in cobbling together a few sexy bikini wearing women to wow their local crowds.
Or maybe, the Yemenis were just beaten by a better and more skillful pairing from Indonesia.
In any event, they are there to play volleyball and not be distracted by the women, aren't they?
