Quite a few of the athletes from many countries were EXTREMELY hot in many different ways. Not surprisingly, NONE were from the huge British contingent. All that wonderful diversity still can't seem to get rid of the classic English horseyness, sad
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
