BRIT FLITS NIX KNICKS!

London (August 2001) -- Female athletes competing for Britain in the World Championships say their official team knickers are too skimpy. The runners are worried they will be flashing their bottoms at spectators.

Officials say they don't want athletes to feel uncomfortable and have allowed them to wear last year's Olympic kit.

Kathy Butler, who is competing in the 5000m at the championships in Canada, says the small knickers have left athletes with a dilemma.

"If you pull them up you can see your bum and when you pull them down you can see your hips. They just don't fit properly," she said.

She added: "I can't find my old Olympic ones, so I'll be wearing the hipsters."

A spokesman for UK Athletics said that officials have given the all-clear for runners to wear last year's design.

"Something had to be done. We can't ask our top athletes to run 25 laps wearing something they feel uncomfortable in," he said.

THAT'S IT!! Go to it you Challengers!! Make her proud!!
