Men have been boxing in Olympic Games since as early as 688 BC according to Wikipedia. Centuries later—this summer—women's boxing will appear for the first time as an Olympic event in London.
The International Boxing Association has announced that the uniform will potentially be, wait for it, skirts. The AIBA says: "...skirts help differentiate" the women from the men. Fans can't tell the difference? The long hair and sports bras up top aren't enough?
Before deciding it's all too silly to pay attention to, take a moment and imagine fighters urged to wear something that marked them by race instead.
