A comment by Aini( bola2api) on Norizan wearing a swimsuit at the A'Formosa Tri. gave me inspiration for this entry. A few months ago this topic cropped up in swimbikerunmalaysia and I was pro swimsuit...I guess being involved in international level sport, makes me/us a bit more preocupied with what to wear than an age-grouper whose in in for fun and whose not to bothered with how long they take to put on something with a bit more coverage. We have set specific targets in triathlon ,and doing well in them is one of the targets , so time and performance during race is critical. Ease of motion , heat dissapation , rate of sweat has always been important to an athlete.
I have taken the responsibility and probably the sins of asking Norizan to wear a swimsuit however I do know what she's like as a person and I confident that what she wears while in sport is not detrimental to her, to her race and religion. I do to respect those who hold firmly to Islam's law of modest dressing even during sports and don't use it as a reason not to participate in sports.
