Wednesday Wasabi: Saaya Irie Boosts Olympic Beach Volleyball, Soccer

Olympic ladies’ sports fever continues to run wild right here! Within minutes of this posting (well, 120 of them to be exact) the Olympic Women’s Beach Volleyball Gold Medal Game will kick off, pitting Misty May and Kerri Walsh against the other U.S. team. Woo-hoo! Women’s beach volleyball is played in bikinis and is a veritable wedgie-fest — so there’s that to look forward to. And then tomorrow at 2:45 eastern the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team (starring Alex Morgan and Hope Solo) will take the field against Japan in the gold medal game. Bring on the ponytails!

Today’s Wednesday Wasabi pays tribute to both competitions, sort of, featuring Japanese model Saaya Irie prepped for a beach volleyball game, wearing a bikini she would most certainly bust right out of if she were to break into a jog.
