Saudi Arabia is to allow its women athletes to compete in The Games for the first time.

A statement issued by the Saudi Embassy in London says the country's committee will "oversee participation of women athletes who can qualify, however, they shall cover up and at all times and wear traditional clothing including hijabs and burkas."

The decision, while welcome, has caused some to question the competitive ability of the Saudi women's swimming and synchronized swimming teams.

Fatima Curry, a Saudi hurdler also feels she may not get a fair shot at her event.

"While we welcome the Saudi's decision," said a Games spokesman, "we do feel that maybe the inclusion of the full cover caveat is a little bit unfair, especially not only in track and field events or events in the pool, but the pole dancing and mud wrestling arenas also."

Reports that the position of Games village idiot has gone to Matt Damon were not yet developed by El Presidente as he is considering other suitable personages for this position including, Kanye West, Jack Osbourne and that annoying woman from the progressive insurance TV commercials.

Make El Presidente's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
