Many athletes find that their sport is best performed while barefoot. After all, going barefoot is a great way to maintain strength, flexibility and sensation in the feet!
As the Games of the 30th Olympiad begin in London, here's a list of events (in no particular order) that are worth checking out and regularly feature barefoot athletes:
- Sychronized Swimming
- Water Polo
- Artistic Gymnastics
- Rhythmic Gymnastics
- Beach Volleyball
We believe that if athletes in these sports can safely go barefoot, walking around in daily life -- even in public -- can be perfectly fine.
