How beach volleyball outfits can jeopardise the Asian Games

One of the issues brought up in the 2015 Cambridge 'A' level sports compre is about the culture of modesty that can pose a stumbling block for women athletes, esp in countries that are very conservative....Their culture prevents them from wearing revealing attire, but such attire helps them to perform in sports like swimming, gymnastics, etc....Imagine having to do a somersault while wearing a hijab or burqa! Ditto when diving or playing beach volleyball!
This is probably one area where tradition/culture/religion can clash with sport....
