I hope the IOC will keep this sport in the Olympics. Meanwhile which one of the guys here wants to join me in Germany for a "hands on" study of this problem ?

Beach volleyball gives women saggy boobs

Women should not play beach volleyball unless they want to be left with sagging breasts, a top German surgeon has warned.

The summer sport is a popular pastime in Germany where women are not afraid to jump about in the sand in their bikinis - or even topless.

But plastic surgeon Dr George Khoury, 39, from Hamburg, says the increasingly popular sport has created a growing number of female clients who have come to him complaining about sagging breasts.

He warns that while the physical exertion might be good for the rest of the body, all the jumping and diving involved in beach volleyball puts a strain on women's breasts.

"Vigorous movements and vibrations stretch the tissue around the breasts, which can lead to permanent sagginess," warned Dr Khoury.

He added: "The female breasts, even small ones, were not made for swinging up and down 300 times within a short period of time, as happens in beach volleyball."

Dr Khoury added that if those addicted to the sport really did not want to give it up they could limit the harm to their breasts by playing less and wearing a sports bra.

As well as women the top surgeon said that men should not think they are free from risk and should remember to wear tight trunks in order to protect their testicles.

"A similar thing can happen to male genitalia. Men should also wear tight pants to stop their testicles sagging too far," he said. {That's why men invented the supporter...}

Well that's their mistake right there! Going topless or wearing a bikini is not enough support.

Two words:

Sports Bra.

So running not only makes your uterus fall out will also likely make your boobs sag. Damn this physical activity and exercise!

They better keep it. Women's beach volleyball is my favorite Olympic spectator sport. I don't care who wins or what the score is, I just like to watch it.
