From state media late last week:
For women hoping to become hostesses at next year’s Olympic Games medal ceremonies, here come the criteria: no tattoos, no big bottoms, and cut down on the earrings.
Tattoos and earrings tend to look sleazy, while big bottoms could stick out too much, state media reported yesterday, quoting officials selecting candidates for medal ceremonies and other protocol activities. …
“We don’t want anyone who looks in any way sleazy because that could really put athletes off,” said Li Ning, principal of Beijing Institute of Protocol, who is heading the selection process.
She said experts were looking for women of uniform height with neat bottoms and minus body art and ear studs. Glossy skin was another asset.
“Bone structure and height should be uniform,” she said. “For example, we don’t want any wide bottoms.”
