This is a breakthrough moment in the history of sports gymnastics. During the European Championships in Basel, German gymnasts wear long overalls instead of loose clothing. For them, this is a protest against sexual violence in the movement.
The gymnast pointed out that many photos taken by the photographer during the competition made them feel ashamed afterwards. However, when they have been circulating on the Internet for several years, it is difficult to compete with them. -I find my own photos on the Internet from time to time, because the perineum is photographed, so I don’t like my photos. Deleting these photos is very difficult-German gymnast Elisabeth Seitz (Elisabeth Seitz) admits.
Setz and her friends decided to protest. -As a member of the German national gymnastics team, we are a role model for many young athletes. We want to show them how to show their aesthetic beauty in different clothing forms without feeling uncomfortable.-augsburger-allgemeine quotes Sarah What Sarah Voss said.de.
On Friday, in the final of the competition, Elisabeth Seitz and Kim Bui also wanted to wear hand-designed, hand-sewn long sportswear. Sarah Voss (Sarah Voss) said: “We want to add the icing on the cake and show off our new clothes.”
Seitz finished 14th with 52,832 points, Bui finished 15th with 52,791 points, and both of them entered the top 24. -I am proud of being able to wear this suit today. I feel really good, it’s super comfortable-emphasizing Voss.
German gymnasts now want female athletes from other countries to join the opposition party. -When others see the trend we set, we feel very happy. Our cultural change started some time ago-gymnastics coach Ulla Koch enrolled.
The turning point was the situation in the game last year, when a player approached her and said that she was naked in clothes that were too light. The trainer responded quickly. “Our girl must be very nice,” Koch said, and borrowed the long jumpsuit.
Seitz added that in women’s gymnastics, the boundary between aesthetics and eroticism is constantly being surpassed. The 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games concluded that people need to understand that gymnastics does not mean to be beautiful, the reason is that it is lightly dressed.
