Topless Danish gymnasts cause a stir in Brazil
« on: March 14, 2013, 02:24:33 am »
Danes were unaware that sunbathing topless was not permitted before a local reporter published a photo showing the "obscene act" – it has since been shared over 7,000 times



Danish gymnasts in Brazil have been turning heads, although not for their high-flying acrobatics.


The National Danish Performance Team is currently on tour in South America and during some spare time in Rio de Janeiro, members ventured down to Copacabana Beach to catch some rays with their tops off.


Little did the young women know that topless sunbathing is not permitted in Brazil, leading a local reporter to snap a photo of the girls in the act and post it on the news website G1.


“The gymnasts donned their bikini tops after discovering, to their surprise, that the practise is not usual in Brazil and could be seen by some as ‘obscene act’”, G1 reported, according to The Copenhagen Post's translation of the Portuguese report.






The article with the photograph has so far been shared over 7,000 times and received over 1,000 comments on the website.


“We knew that a photo came out in the press and the girls are embarrassed,” coach Mette Mogensen told G1. “They did not know that topless sunbathing is prohibited in Brazil, because it is common in Denmark.”


Mogensen expressed regret that the photograph had been published.


“We are here to promote the sport,” she said.







The Danish gymnastics team took the sunny morning of Monday (11) to put on the tan day at Copacabana Beach, South Zone of Rio De topless, common in Europe, the gymnasts were surprised to discover that the practice does not is usual in Brazil and could be seen by some as "obscene act" and donned the bikini top. According to one of the gymnasts, they are in Rio until Wednesday (13) when they travel to Curitiba. (Photo: Cristiane Cardoso/G1)
The National Danish Performance Team consists of 14 men and 14 women, aged 20-26, who are touring the world and holding workshop and presentations to teach gymnastics to children.


G1 reports that they are planning to leave Rio de Janeiro today.

Even though it is technically ok here due to a supreme court ruling if they tried that anywhere other than T.O., Montreal or possibly Halifax the same thing would have happened. Actually reminds me of the time we had some french exchange students visiting our high school and they all started smoking in the cafeteria. Twas quite the scandal at the time.

Between the Ontario courts' ruling on topless rights and the fact that Toronto, Montreal and Halifax all have nudist beaches and annual WNBR events there would be no official question of it being an "obscene act" in those places.  That isn't to say that some churchy member of the public wouldn't mouth off about it but that is another matter entirely.

Topless is not necessarily a crime here (article 233, that defines "lewd acts", is kind of vague and open to different interpretations), but the most annoying thing is how such a thing still generates so much fuss and becomes a big news and repercussion. We should past this point by now.

This is ironicly funny yet sad. Brazil has a prefoming art theater group that perfoms all nude. Google "Uzyna Uzona" and look at some of the pictures.

Coming from a very conservative family, I always have been curios as to what life else has to offer.

Love being naked since being a kid, I hope to meet likewise people here..

Yes there is, but I see no relations between the two things. It's only a group, it does not represent the average of our population.
