A picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, best symbolizes the clash of civilizations. Guess which culture lost 2-0? (Germans won.)

Images show game between Egyptian and German volleyball teams
The Egyptian pair took to the arena wearing long sleeves and leggings
Stark contrast to Germans who wore sport’s traditional two-piece uniform
By Julian Robinson for MailOnline, 8 August 2016
It is a fast and furious sport played under the sun and famed for its revealing attire – with a practical uniform of bikinis for women and board shorts for men.
But these pictures show the contrasting cultures among some of the nations taking part in the Rio Olympics after the Egyptian women’s beach volleyball team took to the sandy arena wearing long sleeves and leggings.
The outfit, used by Nada Meawad and Doaa Elghobashy, who also covered her head with a hijab, was in stark contrast to their German rivals Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst who stuck to the sport’s traditional two-piece outfit for the clash last night.

Although the International Volleyball Federation used to have standards regulating the size of uniforms, those were loosened heading into the London 2012 Olympics to allow full sleeves and leggings

IVB spokesman Richard Baker said on Sunday night that the move was made to open up the game culturally.
By one measure, it has worked. Baker said there were now 169 different countries involved in the Continental Cup qualifying process for the 2016 Olympic, compared to 143 for London.
