[Mothership] Female S’porean pole vaulter had to wear male sprinter’s speed suit at SEA Games https://t.co/Z2Y6IAvAWd
I was asked why was I in a ‘cycling suit’ instead of the usual singlet and tights Firstly, this is not a cycling suit. I was told that this is a set of male’s speed suit which the association SPECIALLY wanted to showcase at this Games for our male sprinters. I was wearing this because I was given the wrong sizing for my singlet because there wasn’t enough small sizes and was told that the supplier did not have stock for my size too. The association also issued a sports bra version for the very first time but I am not used to wearing that since I don’t train in sports bra only when training in a boy’s school. The final and only option given for was me to wear the smallest male speed suit, which fit me better than the other issued attires but still a little big for me. The only things that fit me well on that day were my socks and shoes provided by my own sponsor.
