Selingan. Di Asian Games 2010 China, voli pantai, Indonesia mengalahkan Yemen. China sebagai penyelenggara menyewa 4 grup penari cheerleader untuk menyemarakkan suasana, dan Yemen menyalahkan para cheerleader itu, bikin tidak konsentrasi, katanya.
Organizers of the games in China have hired four cheerleader squads, each made up of eight girls, to entertain fans during breaks in the volleyball action, according to the Tianfu Morning News.
But Yemen beach volleyballer Adeeb Mahfoudh has now accused the squads of being distracting, and partly to blame for their defeat to a more focused Indonesian team.
"They had an effect on how we played," he said. "I think they had something to do with our losing in the match."
Besides cheering on the already capacity crowds, the girls also perform routines that include traditional Chinese elements including martial arts and fan dancing.
The Yemen Times reported that coming from a conservative Arab state, the Yemeni team is not distracted by the women, but rather their sinful dressing.
We Arab men won't be distracted by those bikini-clad women, but there are too much haram scene around so we lost
