but I would not be surprised if the IRI came up with something analogous to burkini.  The FIFA uniforms had a lot of resemblance to burkini.

PS, what happened to the ladies below the knees?

LOL! So Shahram Amiri sneaked in as a female swimmer.......

After meeting the Islamic dress code requirement, now we need gender testing!

They all look like each other in Synchronized swimming

by Anahid Hojjati on

When they do synchronized swimming, they put a cap on their head and a clip on their nose and they pick the women such that they all look like each other. It is a bit freaky, and as far as being a sport, I have to say that I prefer Water polo, not that I ever played it but at least it is a real sport.


Synchronized Swimming Team!
