Germany’s gymnasts wore full-body suits in women’s qualification at the Olympics as they continued their stand against the sexualisation of their sport.
Voss joined Pauline Schaefer-Betz, Elisabeth Seitz and Kim Bui in donning the red and white outfits that extended to the ankles on Sunday.
The body suits defy convention, with most gymnasts opting for a leotard and those who cover their legs in international competition doing so for religious reasons.
The German team had worn similar outfits during training last week, with three-time Olympian Seitz saying at the time that it was “about what feels comfortable”.
“We wanted to show that every woman, everybody, should decide what to wear,” she said.
