Olympics

19720901-07MUNICH: Replay of Berlin 1936 Olympic Games are at present under way here. Main interest is not the athletics, yachting and so on but the new permissiveness that’s hit the sportsdrag scene.

Diving events are notable for the bulging trunks with, for instance, Italia written round the boy’s crutch. In gymnastics the USSR has gone for virgin white with a scarlet edge for the girl’s costumes, while the German Democratic Republic has gone for multishade purple Esther Williams nothings.

All that, and J.D.Grinspoon’s favourite clubs makes it completely unsurprising that the Americans can’t drag themselves out of bed for something as boring as running.
