Female beach volleyball players will have the option of wearing less revealing uniforms at the London Olympics in an attempt by the sport's governing body to respect the cultural beliefs of various countries.

The International Volleyball Federation says it will allow shorts and sleeved tops at the Olympics, in addition to bikinis and body suits already permitted.

"Many of these countries have religious and cultural requirements, so the uniform needed to be more flexible." FIVB spokesman Richard Baker told The Associated Press in a telephone interview on Tuesday. "Winners of the Continental Cups will qualify for the Olympics, so it has to be applied."

Changes to the qualification format for the 24-team women's lineup in London also brought cultural sensitivities into focus by encouraging more nations to compete.
