Long sleeves over bikinis possible at Olympics

Two piece or not two piece -- that is the question.

Two piece or not two piece -- that is the question.

London's Summer Olympics haven't had a very summery buildup and the cool weather may change the look of the beach volleyball competition, where players are considering swapping bikinis for long sleeves and leggings.

Australian competitor Tamsin Hinchley says cold weather gear is definitely an option for the women in London because of the chilly temperatures and late-night matches.

She says "we need it to keep our muscles warm. It's an extremely strenuous sport."

But Hinchley, who will partner 2000 gold medalist Natalie Cook, adds "it's tight fitting, so if that's what you're there for, whatever."
