It's rare for any year's Olympic Games to pass without at least some controversy, but over the last year, the world of international sports in general has seen an unexpected issue brought to the forefront.
And it doesn't have to do with doping or fighting, but rather the scrutiny that female athletes face for the outfits they wear while competing.
This issue first arose last July after the European Handball Federation fined a Norwegian women's team for wearing shorts rather than regulation bikini bottoms. However, it also had some relevance to that year's Summer Games in Tokyo as the German gymnastics team broke from the typically revealing leotards Olympic gymnasts are expected to wear in favor of custom outfits that made them feel more comfortable.
But while that team was allowed to compete and the European Handball Federation has since amended their regulations amid widespread backlash, it seems wardrobe issues have arisen yet again in this year's Winter Games in Beijing.
And it's true that Olympics officials have a practical reason for their current decision, but it still raised questions for the affected teams.
