Olivia Breen is a Welsh Paralympian athlete and she is a two-time Paralympic world champion. On Sunday 18th March 2021 Olivia Breen “was left speechless” after a female official at the English Championships told her that her sprint briefs were “too short and inappropriate.” Breen who is representing Britain in Tokyo at the Paralympic Games next month announced in a statement on Twitter. Breen’s statement said “I am always grateful to the incredible volunteers who officiate athletic events. They do an amazing job and make it possible for us to compete,” added “However, tonight I feel quite disappointed because just as I finished my long jump competition at the English Championships, one of the female officials felt it necessary to inform me that my sprint briefs were too short and inappropriate.” Breen further stated “I have been wearing the same style sprint briefs for many years and they are specifically designed for competing in. I will hopefully be wearing them in Tokyo. It made me question whether a male competitor would be simply criticized. I hope no other female athletes had similar issues.”
Following the shorts controversy, Breen told in an elaborate statement “I recognize that there needs to be regulations and guidelines about competition kit but women should not be made to feel self-conscious about what they are wearing when competing but should feel comfortable and at ease.” After receiving immense supports and solidarity from people worldwide, Breen posted a message of gratitude on her Instagram, saying, “Thank you, everyone, for all your lovely supportive messages and I’m sorry to hear that it has happened to so many other people. Some people have asked what I was competing in yesterday so here is a picture. I don’t think it is “ objectionable” within the UKA regulations.”
