OK guys, if spandex leaves too much to the imagination, then this is the category you've been waiting for: it's time to vote on the hottest beach volleyball ladies of the 2012 Olympics. They're so leggy, and so fit, and their bikini bottoms are so, so small. We've never understood how it is advantageous to have nothing but two tiny pieces of fabric on. Wouldn't it just allow more sand to get into places where you definitely DON'T want sand, which would distract you and hinder your performance? But, who are we to argue? It's a longstanding tradition, and traditions are increasingly rare in this short-term memory, ADHD age, so they should be celebrated. Join us in celebrating (and voting) below.
