Rio 2016: Egyptian Team Female Beach Volleyball Players Wear Hijab During Game With Germany

Pictures show the contrasting cultures among some of the nations taking part in the Rio Olympics after the Egyptian women's beach volleyball team took to the sandy arena wearing long sleeves and leggings.

The outfit, used by Nada Meawad and Doaa Elghobashy, who also covered her head with a hijab, was in stark contrast to their German rivals Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst who stuck to the sport's traditional two-piece outfit for the clash last night.

Afterwards, Elghobashy told reporters: 'I have worn the hijab for 10 years. It doesn't keep me away from the things I love to do, and beach volleyball is one of them.

'I'm proud to be seen raising the Egyptian flag in a carnival with so many nations.'
